Yamaha R25 custom job better than original?

Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) began first phase delivery of Yamaha R25 sports bike last month. While many out of first 500 customers are still awaiting delivery, one of early recipient has already customised the bike to augment its sportiness.

Yamaha-R25-modBerkat Motor based out of Banten province carried out alteration job on Yamaha R25. Pictures suggest job well done but it is just in initial stage as per claim. Factory finished red-white theme is not disturbed (yet). Major change is in tire/rim department, where stock 110/70-17 front tire is replaced with 120/60-17 and stock rear 140/70-17 is removed to fit 180/55-17 Pirelli Diablo tires, mounted on white finished three spoke alloy wheels.

Front wheel gets dual disc rotors and fork gets Brembo callipers to add to deceleration rate of Yamaha R25. Owner is not stopping with these, says more mods are planned. We believe this Yamaha R25 is going to get either Sakura R25 racing exhaust or Akrapovic exhaust soon. More on these exhausts here.
