Yamaha Motor Indonesia pulled the cover off the MT-25. The bike is a naked version of the YZF-R25 model available for the Asian markets.
Yamaha MT-25 is the newest member in the MT range which includes MT-09, MT-07 and MT-125. At the moment, Yamaha Motor didn’t release any news about the MT-25 coming to North America or Europe markets. On the market, Yamaha’s new bike will come as a rival for the Kawasaki Z300 and will go on sale in Indonesia starting from June 2015.
The MT-25 has the same engine that powers the R-25 model, a 249 cc liquid-cooled in-line two-cylinder engine. The unit is capable of 35.5 HP at 12,000 rpm and 16.7 lb-ft (22,6 Nm) of torque at 10,000 rpm. Dry weight is set for 165 kg.
The design for the MT-25 is pretty much similar to the rest of the MT range, especially the MT-07 and MT-125. For the moment we’ll have to wait and see in what form the Yamaha MT-25 will come for the European and North America markets.
