Yamaha MT25 would be the probable name of the new Yamaha naked bike. Being based on R25, the chassis of MT25 is said to be in many ways, similar to that of R25 with small alterations to make the bike gather a look of a street model. Another stipulation of the power transmitter in this bike is being made, the stipulation being the presence of a 249 cc, parallel twin 8-valve liquid cooled engine, just the same as that on the R25 variant.

The bike is being said to have a similar six-speed transmission gearbox, but it is also being said that there might be some changes that will be brought to the gear ratios and designs. Yamaha has always been delaying the launches and announcements in context to the Indian markets due to getting just a fair response to its naked bikes range of FZ series. But Yamaha is all set to land his feet on this holy land and launch these monstrous two-wheelers in India soon after their launch.
