Yamaha MT-25

Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) has updated its MT-25 range with new exciting visuals for 2022.

  • Yamaha MT-25 now available in two new colour scheme.
  • The 2022 Yamaha MT-25 is priced slightly higher than before, at RM22,998. 

Coming in new for the Malaysian market is two new colourway, Cyan Storm and Icon Blue.

While its full-fairing cousin, the YZF-R25 gets minor hardware upgrades, no changes is done to the MT-25. 

That said, the motorcycle features the same 249 cc, in-line two-cylinders, dual overhead camshaft (DOHC) engine capable of  producing 35hp @ 12,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of torque @ 10,000 rpm.


Despite the minor update, the MT-25 is now available at a recommended selling price of RM22,998, a slight increased from the current model that is on sale for RM21,500. 

In addition, buyers is entitled to received a Yamaha safety disc lock worth RM100 with every purchased of the MT-25.

Yamaha releases revised YZF-R25 sport MT-25 naked in its Japan, both sporting light revision plus new colourways for the former.


It’s been a while since we tested a brand-new bike in the local market and today’s special is brought to you by the great folks over at the Hong Leong Yamaha Motor (HLYM) and its latest 250cc offering, the 2020 Yamaha MT-25. Nicknamed the “Rush of Darkness”, we’re here to see if it lives up to all the hype. (more…)

  • The long-awaited Yamaha MT-15 was spotted in Malaysia recently.

  • A photo showed the bike being ridden on the North-South Expressway.

  • The bike may be launched in January 2020.

The long-awaited Yamaha MT-15 was spotted in Malaysia recently.

According to our friends at Pandu Laju, a reader sent in the photos of the bike being ridden on the North-South Expressway. From the picture, we could see that it bears a trade plate and wore no camouflage. It could well be tested for homologation purposes.

Although touted as the MT-25 in their website, our take is that the bike is the MT-15. The photo isn’t clear at all, but there is a piece of bodywork poking out in front of the rider’s right knee. As the MT-25 doesn’t have radiator shrouds (check out the main picture), it narrows down to the MT-15.

Anyway, If it’s indeed going through homologation, it means that we’ll probably see it being launched soon, but most probably in January during the annual Hong Leong Yamaha Dealers’ Convention, usually  held at Genting Highlands.

Also evident in the photo are some elements of the bike’s styling. Its rear end and exhaust silencer are carried over from the fully-faired YZF-R15. In fact, the MT-15 is the naked version based on the popular YZF-R15 platform, thereby running the same mechanicals.

We shall see if it’s actually the MT-15 or MT-25 later, but Malaysian motorcycle fans will have something awesome to look forward to next year!
