    The SL stands for ‘super lightweight’. Well that doesn’t mean that the bike is really light like the 125cc daily commuting vehicles. But the Ninja 250SL is still a pretty Read More

Kawasaki Ninja 250 SL

Lightweight handling

Sharp styling

Cheaper by comparison

Yamaha YZF-R25

The YZF R25, with its R6 inspired design and silhouette, manages to give the rider a big bike appeal which he expects from an entry level quarter liter sportsbike. The nicely sculpted and revised front fairing feels aerodynamic not only in a standstill, but while riding as well.

The new Yamaha YZF R25 comes with a revised list of features which makes it feel even more premium than what it earlier was. Things like a bigger fully digital instrument console as well as premium switchgear, along with LED headlights and taillights, give it a much-needed premium appeal which was slightly missing in the previous generation model.

Superbike ergonomics

Not very practical

No gear position indicator

Yamaha YZF-R25

Apart from the front fairing, Yamaha has not introduced many changes to the rest of the design, in the side as well as at the rear, which doesn’t count the YZF R25 as an all-new machine.

While the parallel twin, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 250cc engine has no qualms as far as performance and refinement is concerned, we would have loved to see a bit more upgrade in power and torque numbers as they remain exactly the same as in previous generation model.
