Yamaha has updated its YZF-R25 sportsbike with a trendy purple livery called Dark Blueish Purple Metallic.
- The R25 gets new updated with new colour scheme in Japan.
- Underpinnings of the quarter-litre sportsbike remains unchanged.
If you seen such colours before that’s because it is the same colour scheme introduced in the US for the YZF-R3.
Interestingly, the new colour not only look exciting but also gives the bike somewhat of a throwback of the old sportbikes from the 90s. Perhaps something from the 1994 FZR1000?
Thankfully, the out of place Vivid Orange Metallic introduced last year has been retired. However, if the purple is too much, you can opt for Deep Purplish Blue Metallic and Black Metallic instead.
Nevertheless, the 2023 R25 continue to offer the same bodywork and underpinnings.
Mechanically, the R25 feature s a 249cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that cranks out 35.5hp @ 12,000rpm and 30Nm @ 10,000rpm. That said, the quarter litre sportsbike offers decent performance for both the city and twisty roads.
