What we say…

There is a bike that stands head and shoulders above the rest. Pulsating with Yamaha's legendary R-Series DNA, the race-bred YZF-R125 is your introduction to motorcycling's most exclusive club.

This remarkable motorcycle has been developed using the same advanced technology that makes the larger capacity R-series models some of the most respected bikes on the street and track.

With its radical bodywork and features like upside down front forks and an aluminium swinging arm - as well as a short-stroke liquid-cooled engine and ABS - the YZF-R125 is built to thrill.


Liquid-cooled 4-stroke single cylinder engine

Featuring a free-revving short-stroke configuration, the liquid-cooled 125cc 4-stroke engine drives though a slick-shifting 6-speed gearbox to give ultra-responsive acceleration. Equipped with a highly efficient fuel injection system, the YZF-R125 delivers thrilling performance with outstanding fuel economy.


Lightweight aluminium chassis components

R-Series DNA is evident in the light and immensely strong aluminium swinging arm which ensures precision handling and confident road holding. A redesigned rear linkage gives even greater riding comfort, and with the brake pedal, shift lever and passenger footrests all made from aluminium, the YZF-R125 has a leading specification.


Multi function LCD instrumentation

The YZF-R125 is equipped with one of the most sophisticated LCD instrument panels seen on a 125cc bike. Its comprehensive backlit display includes a digital speedometer with a bar type tachometer, and the advanced design also includes data on fuel level and fuel consumption, as well as distance and range trip meters.


R-series inspired bodywork

With its aggressive twin headlight fairing and central air intake, there's no mistaking the R-series heritage in the latest YZF-R125. The radical front cowl gives this class-leading 125cc supersport a genuine big-bike look and feel, and the slippery aerodynamic bodywork is ready to slice through the air for maximum riding excitement.


High-rigidity upside down forks

Just like the legendary YZF-R1 and WSS-winning YZF-R6, the YZF-R125 is equipped with upside down front forks which offer high levels of rigidity for precise and responsive handling characteristics. To emphasise the R-series racing heritage the front fender features a carbon-look finish, giving the YZFR125 a real big-bike character.


Lightweight race-bred wheels

Lightweight wheels utilise a race-bred multi-spoke design featuring thin Yshaped spokes that contribute to a low unsprung weight for responsive suspension action and precise handling. And with a 100/80-17 front tyre and wide section 130/70-17 rear tyre, this 125cc supersport bike is built to slice though the bends.

What Yamaha says…

At Yamaha we take the 125cc category very seriously indeed. And that’s because we believe that
every rider - including A1 licence holders - should have access to the very latest engine and chassis technology.

Since we launched the original YZF-R125 it has become the undisputed class leader. Developed
using R-series DNA, this remarkable supersport bike is your passport to an exciting new world of two wheeled action.

Featuring a radical R6-inspired front cowl and equipped with upside down front forks and multifunction LCD instruments - as well as state of the art brakes with optional ABS - the YZF-R125 is ready to change your world. Forever.
