There is a scoop roaming in the net about the new bike that Yamaha is planning to roll out and to our surprise it’s a 250cc four stroke four cylinder sports bike that resembles the R1 and R6 which has been published in the Japanese magazines in July 2008. Although Yamaha has not commented nor acknowledged about the bike and the news published, we know that Yamaha doesn’t have a strong competitor in the 250cc sports segment, I think it’s the right time Yamaha plunges into this segment giving Kawasaki and Hyosung a tough time.

Yamaha YZF R4

The magazine also shows the bike in three different colors and has a love at first sight looks. Although the parts which are loaded in the bike are from R1 in terms of the rear fender and R6 in terms of the side and front fairing and R125 in terms of rear view mirrors the bike still looks hot.

    I doubt, rather we expect they will bring 2010 YZF-R1 in upcoming Auto Expo.But Yamaha officials say there are lots of products lined up for launch.So we can wait and see whats in pipeline.

  • fas

    I doubt Yamaha will get this into India.

  • modifii

    Even if it is launched in India, it will have price tag of atleast Rs 3.5 to 4 lacs. And being 4 cylinder bike it will easily outperform baby Ninja.

    I am expecting a 250cc single cylinder bike in range of Rs 1.25 to 1.5 lacs, because that space is still open and i see lot of buyers there.

    • Rohan

      bro its mentioned in other website that its single cylindered……

  • Vipin_s

    The photo has been on the net for sometime now and is no more than a rumour. Its a Photoshop job done on the YZF R6 and the YZF R125 and combining them into a single photo.

  • Dhruv

    I think…YAMAHA people wont generate 250 cc bike with 4 cylinders. Kawasaki and Hyosung are having 2 cylinders bikes for 250 cc. Making 4 cylinders for this small capacity…doesn’t make any sense. It will increase the weight considerably. So…wait and watch…this beauty is possible or will just remain a scoop….

  • good yaar yahama is always no.1 in speed bike…

  • Shashi

    Finally Kawaski ninja competitor has come its good to see here need to wait untill it launches in india..

  • mithun

    i hope its the new era of biks,other sence we can say that its a new bike revolution is going to get started in yamaha definitly will be a part of it.

  • virendra

    WHY yamaha does not says anthing about launching date & price of this 250 cc buaty yet?????

  • Audi

    i dont think the 4 has nething to do with 4cycl. i feel it is nothing more dan somethin to mark a territory. instead or addin too many R’s they might b plannin to sub-categories the existing segments.. or maybe they r plannin to work on a 400cc on same platform as well so sub categorize the name..

    dont knw just predicting, but yamaha needs a competitive bike in dat segment..

  • anwar

    its nothing but a really nicely morphed pic…morphed from a pic of yamaha r6…no special changes except for a shorter exhaust…am sorry to say …bt its a fake..:(

  • Abiram Menon

    @Dhruv: It is very possible to build a 250 cc 4 cyl engine with the least weight. Yamaha already had expertise in building such motorbikes in the past.see the 90’s FZR 250 bikes.They produced 45 BHP@ 16500 and can rev all the way to 18000 weighed only 145 kg (pulsar weight).it will do 0-100 in 6 sec and do 180 kmph and delivered 30kmpl.
    @Audi: what u have said is more correct it might be a 400 cc 4 cyl engine.not a 250cc 4 cyl.but if its a 400cc, it would be a high priced import again.:P
    haha….finally it might be a fake..but they can do it. atleast we can see smbdy riding it on the road.

  • Rahul Sharma

    Yamaha is now all set to defeat all other motorcycle manf. in india, but they must do something pilion riders specially for females.

  • Sharad

    That looks very similar to an r6.. i think its a hoax… and the number of cylinders does make a difference in performance.. In MotoGP, all bikes including the honda repsol RCV212, Yamaha M1 uses 4 cylinders.. Whereas i gotta know dat Ducati Desmosedici uses only 2 cylinders.. But d desmosedici churns out 230bhp whereas RCV212-210bhp…m1-200bhp… Though desmosedici is 20Bhp more than RCV212, it cant beat d RCV in straight drag… Maybe the torque is more in RCV

  • Sharad

    Hey Abhiram, the new r6 also has short exhausts.. dis is definitely a fake computer generated pic by using r6 as base pic

    I want to buy this bike yamaha R4 250, please tell me the launching date

  • Nauman

    The yamaha r4 is good but the company have to think about price which is the main factor if the bike costs around 1.5 its damm good but if it exeeds above 2 lakhs i think its a prooblem for the buyers if the company tries to reduce price the bike is definitely going to beat cbr 150r and kawasaki 250r i think so
