YZF-R25 Pros & Cons

By Abhishek Katariya on Aug 21, 2020
Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

YZF-R25 Overview

Since its launch in 2014, Yamaha YZF-R25 has been popular among the riders for its racing image and performance. It can be seen as a leading model for Yamaha's sports image in Malaysia and has become an aspirational model, especially among young ones. Also, it is one of the most affordable 249-cc bikes that can bring you close to a conventional track-focused bike. Earlier this year, Yamaha launched the 2020 YZF-R25 in the country with new graphics, new colours, and an updated multi-function instrument cluster. The new bodywork echoes the bigger Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP. Presently in its second generation, it's a fierce contender to Honda CBR 250R. Yamaha retails the updated YZF R25 here for RM 19,998.

Yamaha YZF-R25 Design

Though YZF-R25 is just a quarter-liter bike, it has got big-motorcycle looks and style. Inspired by the R1 styling, the front fascia gets a dual headlight setup called "Predator Look" by the company, which looks almost friendly. The wide front end is merged with a narrower windshield, and there is also a triangular pilot light right below it. 

Also, there is a central air duct that adds a bit of more sportiness to the look. It is not there just for show; rather, it channels air towards the engine to maximize the cooling effect. The rear styling of the bike is inspired by the Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP race machine. The tail lamp is a striking trapezoidal piece that uses LEDs. 

2020 YZF-R25 comes in two new attractive matte shades - matt silver and matt blue. The matt blue version features nardo grey accents, whereas the matt silver version gets red accents on the rims. The new graphics are sleeker and lend a more aggressive look. 

The split seat of the bike comes with an anti-slip feature. The pillion seat is there but will need someone really brave to use it. Dimensionally, the bike is 2090 mm long, 720 mm wide and 1135 mm high with a ground clearance of 160 mm. These largish proportions aid in the bike's handling. It rides on 17-inch cast aluminium alloy 10-spoke wheels shod with 110/70 tyres in the front and 140/70 tyres in the rear. 

The bike incorporates a digital analogue display with all the usual instruments, including two trip metres, a fuel consumption calculator, and a gear indicator. There is a large analogue tachometer that along with a gear shift lamp indicator, helps the rider move the transmission lever in the most optimum manner.

YZF-R25 Ride & Handling

Undoubtedly, the bike is a brilliant handler. Yamaha bikes are known for good handling chassis, and YZF-R25 is no exception with its stiff diamond frame chassis. The suspension system houses nonadjustable conventional telescopic forks at the front and a monocross twin-tube unit adjustable for preload at the back. This setup handles all kinds of road conditions with ease. The rear should be set on a tighter setting for more spirited driving. The rider does ride with a forward lean but nothing too extreme. With a weight of 166 kg, the bike is comfortable to lean around corners. Moreover, the seat allows the rider to move around and really use the bike's grip. 

Yamaha YZF-R25 Engine & Fuel Consumption

Powering the 2020 YZF-R25 is a 249-cc two-cylinder, 4-Stroke, 8-valve DOHC engine that delivers a maximum power of 36 PS at 12,000 rpm and a peak torque of 22.6 Nm at 10,500 rpm. The engine comes with Yamaha's Variable Valve Actuation, which helps the mill be in the higher rev range. However, the power delivery is not the fastest, which puts a big damper on the issue of spirited driving. Also, the lack of quick acceleration may trouble easy overtaking, but the bike is good enough for normal city driving. The high power band is also meant for the newer riders who can use the bike on a daily basis without endangering themselves. Perhaps it will also cause the rider to have an itch for more power earlier on this than on other bikes. Although the 6-speed transmission works really well with quick and smooth shifts. The mileage is a low 15-20 kmpl, which is normal for a bike with a 14000 rpm redline. 


YZF-R25 Braking & Safety

Yamaha YZF-R25 gets hydraulic disc brakes at both front and rear ends, which allow the lightweight, supersport bike to stop in a dime. At the front, it comes with a dual-piston floating setup, while the rear gets a single-piston. Although the bike's braking performance is excellent, it could have been better with the anti-lock braking system.

Yamaha YZF-R25 Verdict

At the given price-point, Yamaha YZF R25 is a good learner bike for young riders. It boasts a commuter like riding and its engine characteristics deliver spirited performance when pushed really hard. All these indicate that Yamaha actually knows what is needed in this increasingly competitive market.

    Lose Jun 09, 2022 for Yamaha YZF-R25

    The Yamaha YZF R25 is certainly the bigger brother of the R15 lineup as it gets the power of 100cc over the other variant. Powered by a 250cc engine, this bad boy churns out a power of up to 35.5hp. Besides, I also am a fan of the overall design and ride stance that this bike gives out. I’ve been Read More

    Riding this bike is literally like a fairytale for me! The reason I say this is the combination of power, style, and extraordinary comfort that the two-wheeler assures me every single time I decide to control the machinery.

    The first thing you notice about the Yamaha YZF-R25 is its aggressively sporty look. This one is a fully-faired bike with an aerodynamic front. It comes with the raised pillion seat which is typical among all sports bikes. The 250cc motor produces 36hp which is great by all standards. Well, it is not an all-out track racer, but the YZF-R25 Read More
