Yamaha R25 SE on the other hand is also limited in number and priced at 53 million Indonesian Rupiah (INR 2.53 lakhs). It sports no changes in mechanics as it is powered by the same 250cc parallel twin cylinder engine offering 36 PS power at 12,000rpm and 22.6 Nm torque at 10,000 rpm mated to a 6 speed transmission.

Yamaha R15 and R25 are amongst the best selling Yamaha motorcycles in Indonesia. On the other hand, in spite of having a huge market in India, Yamaha has still not launched the R25 in the country, this in spite of the fact that they imported a R&D unit back in 2013. Latest rumours suggest that Yamaha India will not launch R25 in India, but will get the R3 later this year.
