2013 Yamaha TT-R125LE

Posted on by

On the long list of beginners’ bikes you’ll also find the Yamaha TT-R125LE, a four-four-stroke-powered model that offers a pretty exciting riding experience. What makes the bike interesting it’s not its engine power - which is pretty limited- , but its lightweight nature and the superior maneuverability.

To make the bike more versatile, Yamaha gave it a relativelly high seat height which is rated at less than 32 inches. The bike comes with more than 11 inches of ground clearance combined with a long travel suspension at both ends which help it deal reasonably with harsh tracks. Though, don’t expect to any wonders, as the TT-R125LE’s suspensions have their limitations and due to their choppy character will keep you from going very fast.

Like the previous model, the 2013 Yamaha TT-R125LE features push-button electric start, 19 and 16-inch wheels, an aluminum swingarm and a 220mm front disc brake. The MSRP of the 2013 Yamaha TT-R125LE is $3,290.
