Yamaha R25 naked version: Yamaha MT25 spotted testing
It doesn’t come, as a surprise from the leading Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Yamaha is always ready to offer something interesting in every season. Yamaha’s R25 naked version is the target for this season, christened as Yamaha MT25 has been found testing many a times.
Last year, the company had gone ahead to launch the R25 in the Indonesian market as the first lightweight Sportsbike to cater to the world. As expected, the Sportsbike was a super hit and hence, is due for its launch for the other countries as well. This year again, Yamaha is not sitting quiet and has started working on another interesting product as the upcoming street fighter.
From the spy images updated on an Indonesian website, it is very clear that the design cues inspiration is from none other than the R25. You see it from anywhere, even rear; one cannot make any difference between a faired and a naked one. One can find changes along its front fascia in the form of a new headlamp unit missing out on the front fairing and side guards.
With this, one can also find changes in the name of new cowl engine guard, an exposure blue colored frame and the MT25 badging being donned below the fuel tank area. Other than this, everything else seems similar, wheels, disc brakes and front fenders too.
The company is in no mood to delay, but put the MT-25 into the production phase very soon, by the end of this year itself and we can expect the Indian launch to happen anytime during the early 2016. When launched, the Yamaha MT25 is going to be a very powerful bike and is sure to build strong heat waves for KTM motorcycle at least.
