The new YZF-R125 engine is the most sophisticated 125cc design we’ve ever built. Its new Variable Valve Actuation system and new high-flow cylinder head deliver stronger low rpm torque and more high rpm power – giving quicker acceleration, faster pick up, a higher top speed and better fuel efficiency.
Aggressive new YZF-R1-derived bodywork and dual LED headlights project a strong and forceful look – and the refined Deltabox frame together with a new aluminium swingarm and wider 140-section rear tyre reaffirm the new YZF-R125 as the ultimate lightweight supersport

The new YZF-R125 engine uses an innovative new Variable Valve Actuation system that optimises the valve position for higher levels of low rpm torque and stronger high rpm power – and also improves fuel efficiency. A wider diameter throttle body gives a smoother and more controllable throttle feel – and the new exhaust system produces a sporty and emotive sound.
To achieve higher levels of intake efficiency the YZF-R125s new engine is equipped with larger intake and exhaust valves as well as a more compact combustion chamber. Combined with the high-tech VVA – as well as the larger throttle body and new exhaust system – this configuration offers more performance from a stand still through to top speed.
The YZF-R125 is known as one of the best-handling bikes in its category, and for even smoother and lighter handling – with improved high-speed comfort – the refined Deltabox frame uses optimised front and rear geometry. Equipped with a new shorter aluminium swingarm and 41mm upside down forks, the new YZF-R125 brings you the ultimate 125 supersport specification..
Yamaha R-Series models are designed to give you the ultimate in style, performance and technology, and to underline its position as the premium 125 supersport, the new YZF-R125 features a new aluminium swingarm. Manufactured using Yamaha’s advanced casting technology, its shorter dimensions, low weight and optimised rigidity deliver sporty handling performance.
To help you take full advantage of the increased engine performance, the new YZF-R125 is equipped with an improved A&S clutch that gives a lighter feel at the lever for more precise operation and increased controllability. The new design ensures smooth and efficient acceleration; and during deceleration the A&S clutch helps to prevent rear wheel lock ups.
Inspired by the iconic YZF-R1, the confident and aggressively styled face features twin-eye LED headlights that reinforce the R-Series family connection. Its M1 MotoGP style front fairing underlines the race-bred specification, and with a 12 LED taillight and premium finish, there’s no mistaking the pure R-Series DNA in the YZF-R125’s stunning new bodywork.
The YZF-R125’s aggressive race-bred bodywork is complemented by a newly designed fuel tank that emphasises the bike’s pure supersport pedigree. Consisting of a steel inner tank protected by lightweight close-fitting external covers with a high-quality finish, the new 11-litre tank is designed to be easily removed for routine maintenance.
Everything about the new YZF-R125 is designed to give the ultimate sporty experience. Inspired by Yamaha’s MotoGP bike, the racy cockpit features a new high quality handlebar crown as well as a high-visibility LED instrument panel and brake lever protector that put you in total control on the track and on the street.
When you turn on the new YZF-R125 you’ll be greeted with a personal greeting from the high-tech instruments – and once you’re moving the new multi-function display gives you information on gear position and shift timing, as well as a VVA indicator. Housed in a stylish and sporty panel, these high-visibility instruments keep you informed.
As well as its new race-bred YZR-M1 style cockpit, the YZF-R125 is also equipped with a newly designed rider and passenger seat featuring a revised shape and thicker foam for increased comfort. With an optimised handlebar position and new aluminium rear set footrests, the refined ergonomics give a balanced riding experience that's both sporty and comfortable.
For 2019 the new YZF-R125 runs with a new wider 140/70-17 rear tyre that gives improved stability and better handling. Offering a good balance of grip and durability, this supersport style tyre is designed to enable you to optimise the potential of the new engine’s wider spread of power, and its wide-section accentuates the bike’s aggressive R-Series stance.
Equipped with a large diameter 292mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc, the YZF-R125 is built to give you outstanding braking performance – and for 2019 this state-of-the-art braking system benefits from a revised brake hose layout and a new rear caliper that contribute towards a better brake feel for precise and accurate control.
