Photos of the Yamaha MT-25 Surface, The Bike Looks Decent

The first clear photos of the upcoming Yamaha MT-25 have emerged and the bike looks pretty neat, but somehow it seems to drift a bit from the boxy looks of the other MT machines. Don't get us wrong, we don't want this to sound in a pejorative way. But we kind of expected the MT-25 to have a certain vibe, closer to what the MT-07 and MT-09 became recognizable for.
A naked version of the R25 sport quarter-liter two-wheeler, the MT-25 looks a bit disappointing. It lacks most of the modern lines of the other MT's, and this includes the smallest member of the family, the MT-125.

Is this a "budget MT"?

Some might justify this saying that the MT-25 is a bike destined for the Asian markets, so it has to be extremely competitive as far as prices go. That's why Yamaha preferred an old-school tubular frame and retained the same tail section from the faired version.

All in all, the MT-25 looks much like Yamaha just wanted to deliver a naked sibling for the R25 without too many concerns that much of the MT DNA would be lost in the process. On one hand, this approach is impossible to deny, but on the other hand, it also is consistent with the policy of other manufacturers.

That is, a certain region of the planet receives models that are different from what is sold in other areas. Therefore, bikes in different regions, even though bearing the same series name, would be inherently different, too.

Maybe we should have saved out expectations for the MT-03 (if this will be the name of the bike in the end). Anyway, if priced competitively, the MT-25 will surely be a hit in the market that will receive it. The blue accents on the flyscreen, air intakes, and frame are a sizzling hot match for the blue wheels. Tmcblog has more photos.
