YZF-R25 Pros & Cons

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.

Recent Updates of YZF-R25

The 2019 Yamaha YZF-R25 resembles the YZF-R1 superbike and comes with a redesigned fairing and better aerodynamics. One of the best motorcycles in the quarter-litre category, the all-new R25 is equipped with features like fully digital LCD instrument display, 3 in 1 starter and cut-off switch and LED headlights and taillights. The bike is powered by a parallel-twin 249cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected DOHC engine that delivers 36 PS of power and 22.6 Nm of torque. The engine is equipped with Variable Valve Actuation and assist and slipper clutch which makes the most out of the six-speed transmission. Riding comfort is offered by nonadjustable conventional telescopic forks at the front and mono-cross twin-tube unit at the rear. In terms of braking, the R25 gets a 300mm floating disc at the front with twin-piston calipers and 200mm disc at the rear with a single-piston setup. Priced at RM 19,464 the YZF R25 is an ideal sportsbike to experience a unique riding experience.

Overview

Quarter-litre bikes are nothing new now. These bikes are supposed to introduce riders to bigger two-wheels versions. The 250 cc is just the right amount of displacement for someone who has just moved up from 150 cc and onto bigger bikes. After taming this, riders would seek more power and shift to 600 cc bikes before moving to litre class bikes. This gradual progression eases the rider into playing around with more power without endangering themselves. These bikes have big (for Asian markets) 250 cc engines but commuter or tourer like riding characteristics. Launched in 2014, Yamaha’s YZF R25 is a very good example of this concept. Presently in its second generation, it’s a fierce contender to Honda’s CBR 250R. Yamaha sells the YZF R25 here for a little over RM 20,000. Here is a detailed look at the bike.

Design

In a nutshell, the styling for the YZF R25 comes courtesy of the R1. But it’s not all aggression either. The design is restrained while taking inspiration from some of the most aggressive bikes in Yamaha’s stable. The front gets a dual headlight setup which is called the “Predator Look” by the company but looks almost friendly. The front end is wide with a narrower windshield. There is also a triangular pilot light right below it. Behind it is a combination digital analogue display with all the usual instruments including two trip meters, 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 transmission lever in the most optimum manner. Moving to the side, we find the bike has flat panels without any sharp intakes or vents. A surprisingly restrained approach for a fully faired Yamaha bike. There is a large and sporty mid ship mounted exhaust with a silver end that gives it some muscle. There is a split seat that comes with an anti-slip feature. The pillion seat is there but will need someone really brave to use it. The taillight is a striking trapezoidal piece that uses LEDs and looks like it is inspired from the R1. At 2090 mm long, 720 mm wide and 1135 mm high with a ground clearance of 160 mm this bike does a good job of hiding its largish proportions. It rides on 17-inch cast aluminium alloy 10 spoke wheels shod with 110/70 tires in the front and 140/70 tires in the rear. On the whole, it does a good job of looking like the R1 which is probably what they were aiming for.

Ride & Handling

The front has nonadjustable conventional telescopic forks while the rear gets a monocross twin-tube unit adjustable for preload. The suspension 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. This is not an out and out sports bike.  The 166 kg bike is easy to lean around corners. The seat allows the rider to move around and really use the bike’s grip. Yamaha is known for good handling chassis and this is no exception with its stiff diamond frame chassis.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The R25 is powered by a water-cooled and fuel injected inline twin with 4 valves per cylinder. This is good for 26.5 kW at 12000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of torque at 10000 rpm. As can be seen, the power resides in the top of the rev range which is not the easiest to reach. The bike has to be driven like a madman to get the most of its engine. Power delivery is not the fastest. This puts a big damper on the issue of spirited driving.  Lack of quick acceleration does not make for easy overtaking. Normal city driving is not a problem, however. The high power band also means that newer riders can use this bike on a daily basis without endangering themselves. Perhaps this will also cause the rider to have an itch for more power earlier on this than on other bikes. The 6-speed transmission, however, works really well with quick and smooth shifts. The mileage is a low 15-20 kmpl which is natural for a bike with a redline of 14000 rpm.

Braking & Safety

There is a 300 mm floating disc in the front with a twin-piston calliper setup. The rear gets a 220 mm disc with a single piston setup. The brakes are sufficient for most conditions but there is no option for ABS.

Verdict

The Yamaha YZF R25 is a good learner bike for its price. It has a commuter like riding and engine characteristics that does deliver some spirited performance when pushed really hard. Yamaha seems to know what it is doing in this increasingly competitive market.

    An upgrade worth every penny

    I love sports bikes, and Yamaha is a trusted brand for me from last so many years. I previously had the R15, from which I upgraded to the R25 couple of months back. It looks very close to the R1, which is my all-time favourite bike. The sporty looks and an aggressive stance along with stylish design elements like its Read More
