R25 outsells Ninja 250

In their first full month head to head the R25 has shown its teeth!

Quote:
In August 2014, 2,202 units of Yamaha R25 were sold while Kawasaki Ninja Ninja 250R did only 2,159 units. Honda CBR 250R is no longer a threat as only 152 units were delivered in the month. Yamaha R25 has only one variant. Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Honda CBR 250R come in two variants, ABS equipped and non-ABS versions. 1,714 units of Ninja 250R ABS variant were sold and non-ABS accounts to 445 only. CBR 250R ABS model did 116 sales and non-ABS trim only 36.
Boom goes the dynamite!

That isn't any easy feat. Do you think that Yamaha will be able to keep it up or is it just because its just come out on the market?

Tough to say at the moment but being the brand they are, they could gain some good traction

Guess it depends partly on how those first owners like the bike. If it gets good reviews then it will build a reputation, be recommended more by dealers, etc. Bad reviews could do the opposite, but I'm sure that it won't get bad reviews.

Kawasaki has stared more riders off in the sports area than is fair to count, although those are used bikes. New, new 250's that is are bought on one metric, performance. So long as R25 wins the horsepower war they'll be fine...

Good point, it shouldn't be that hard for them, if need be maybe they can even give it a bit of a tune to up power a bit, look better on paper.
