The R25 has just been shown and boy is it EVER impressive. 36 bhp is good for second in glass behind the larger Ninja 300, I'm firmly of the opinion that the inevitable R3 will break 40!

Yami blue, Indonesian red and basic black are the fairing options, however those may be subject to change for Euro/NA/Oceanic markets...

Does the unveiling of the R25 give us any more information as to what we can expect from the R3?

Do you think that the R3 will basically look exactly the same as the R25?

Yeah, right now the R25 is ok in my book. I like the RPM and the looks. A little bit lighter than the ninja 300, but the fuel capacity could be better since ninja is 4.5 gal. Hope the R3 will be better than the R25.

I am looking for a light weight small cc bike for commuting and weekend touring. R25 is not what I have in mind but hopefully Yama will make a MT-25 or MT-30 using the same engine. This engine is awesome!

The fact that R25 weights the same as Honda CBR300R is very disappointing to me. Most of Yamaha bikes are much lighter then Honda's. Duke 390 is only 300lbs but orange is not my color. Also there is no mention of ABS as standard or available option for the R25, but perhaps Europe and N.A. will have it on the R3.

ABS will be an option for early 2015. R3 will likely have it as standard in anticipation of the new european regulations, north america may be offered it as an option however....

Pretty sure when it comes to US there is going to be a choice of Non-ABS and ABS.
