KTM RC 390 vs Yamaha R25

Recommended Posts

Big confusion is that which is better in these two upcoming bikes one with 249cc twin cylinder liquid cooled engine and another with 349cc single cylinder water cooled engine. And if we talk about looks then i must say KTM RC have killer looks. Am looking for complete comparison in these two.

Actually ktm390 has 373.2cc single cylinder, 4-stroke water cooled engine and yamaha r25 is 249cc 2-cylinder, 4- stroke, DOHC 8 valves engine and in Indian market they are going to launched in the near price segment. That is the reason to compare them because both are racing bikes in the same price range.

Yamaha isn't launching the R25 in India, instead It's coming up with R3.

Design-wise, the Yamaha YZF-R3 is identical to the R25 and its impossible to spot any differences between the two, especially since both the bikes share the same panels, the same diamond type frame and even the dimensions. Styling is inspired by the Yamaha’s YZF-R series bikes featuring dual headlamps, a sharp narrow tail, stubby silencer, digital-analogue console, 10 spoke alloy wheels and other elements. The motorcycle is available in two color schemes, Race Blue combination of blue and white) and Midnight Black (black with red highlights).

The difference exists in terms of the power unit with the Yamaha YZF-R3 getting a 321 cc, in-line, 4 stroke, two cylinder engine producing 41.4 bhp at 10,750 rpm and a peak torque of 29.6 Nm at 9,000 rpm which is around 6 bhp more power and 8 Nm more torque than the R25. This engine is mated to a 6 speed transmission which drives the rear wheel via a chain drive.

Cheers.
