2021 Yamaha YZF-R25
Starting with the design, the 2021 model uses the same fairing design as the previous 2020 model. As before, the quarter-litre YZF-R25 design follows Yamaha’s R-DNA. From the aggressive front facia to the narrow tail section, the YZF-R25 echos the sleek design of the bigger YZF-R1.
The model features a dual-LED headlamp unit up front and a sleek LED taillight unit at the rear. On the inside, the YZF-R25 gets a multifunctional LCD panel.
Suspension duties are taken care of by a gold anodised upside-down front fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking is done via a 2 piston calliper with 300mm disc up front and a single-piston calliper with 220mm disc at the rear. As for the wheels and tyre, the YZF-R25 rolls in with a set of 17-inch wheels with 110/70 front tyre and 140/70 rear tyre.
In the case of the engine, the YZF-R25 is powered by a liquid-cooled 249cc two-cylinder 8 valve DOHC engine. Mated to a 6-speed gearbox, the YZF-R25 puts out 35.5hp @ 12,000 rpm and a peak torque of 22.6Nm @ 10,000 rpm.
