According to reports, the bike may make its debut in 2014. Yamaha, which has labelled the bike "a superbike you can ride everyday", will also launch it in Japan and Europe apart from India.

In India, the R25 bike will compete with Honda CBR 250 and Kawasaki Ninja 300. The Yamaha R25 is expected to have twin cylinder, liquid-cooled and an advance fuel injection system.  The bike borrows its styling from Yamaha’s M1 MotoGP machine, making it one of the best looking quarter-litre motorcycles.

The R25 showcased in Tokyo Motor Show is still in concept form and hence detailed specifications including power and torque outputs remain unknown.

Like YZF series, the R25 leans its rider into the handlebars in an aggressive, weight forward riding position. It uses telescopic fork suspension in front and a monoshock at the rear. There is a single disc brake front and rear.
The R25 is expected to belt out 28-30 horses and priced between Rs 2.5- 3 lakh.
