2021 Yamaha YZF-R25 launched in Japan – now with ABS

Yamaha Motor Japan unveiled its latest 2021 Yamaha YZF-R25 which comes in three new colour options and graphics as well as the addition of dual-channel ABS as a standard feature. With this, the non-ABS version of the R25 has come to an end, which will slowly be followed by markets around the globe.

These three new colour options are Yamaha Blue, Dark Grey Metallic, and our personal favourite, Cyan. This colour is also available on the latest updated Yamaha Y15ZR, a very popular 150cc cub here in Malaysia.

Going back to the new ABS addition, the dual-channel ABS makes sense considering that its naked sibling, the Yamaha MT-25, already has that feature as standard. For the local market, you can get the MT-25 at RM21,500 (excluding insurance, road tax & registration) which is around RM1,500 more than the current Yamaha YZF-R25 offering.

The rest of the specs for the updated YZF-R25 remains the same, including its 250cc parallel-twin engine which produces 35hp at 12,000rpm and 23Nm torque at 10,000rpm. If you happen to be in Japan right now, you can get the 2021 Yamaha YZF-R25 at JPY654,500, which is around the RM25,600 mark.

For now, you can check out our official review of the 2020 Yamaha MT-25 in the link, below. Stay tuned for more updates.
