Yamaha is rumoured to be working on a 250cc retro version of the MT-25. The XSR250 will be the next entrant in the XSR retro family after the XSR155. It will have a retro bodywork along the lines of the XSR 155 and the larger XSR700.

The new XSR155 will use the MT-25’s diamond-type frame, unlike the XSR155 which uses a more sophisticated deltabox frame. It could also use the MT-25’s twin-cylinder powerplant. This motor makes 36PS and 27Nm. However, for markets like Europe, America and possibly even India, the bike could get the larger and more powerful 321cc liquid-cooled motor from the all-new R3. They could then call it the XSR300.
However, we do not expect the XSR250/300 to debut in India anytime soon. The all-new R3 is expected to launch first and that could be as early as the 2020 Auto Expo.
