Yamaha ’s TT line of four-stroke bikes is the perfect family bike to take the kids out on those weekend trail trips. It doesn’t matter that it doesn’t come with the kind of performance capabilities that other bikes have, the TT-R125LE does provide the kind of overall fun that allows riders - whether they’re kids or adults - to enjoy every minute of the trip.
For the 2012 model, the Yamaha TT-R125LE features a long, gripper-style seat that aids seat-of-the-pants feel. The bike also comes with Team Yamaha-inspired colors, graphics and front and side number plates; a sleek and narrow fuel tank that helps create a big-bike look and feel; large, folding, cleated footpegs that provide excellent footing, even in wet or muddy conditions; and durable fork boots to ensure excellent fork seal and stanchion tube protection.
As far as its handling capabilities are concerned, the TT-R125LE has a rigid frame design that features a long wheelbase to accommodate bigger riders while maintaining quick, agile off-road handling. A 31mm telescopic front fork with 7.1" of travel comes with preload adjustability for confidence-inspiring control over rough terrain. Likewise, a single rear shock with 6.6" of travel and compression and rebound damping adjustability provide predictable handling for the aggressive rider.
In terms of performance, the TT-R125LE comes with a reasonable 124cc air-cooled SOHC four-stroke powerplant with a 20mm Mikuni carburetor that ensures crisp, dependable throttle response. The engine is mated to a five-speed transmission with a heavy-duty clutch that’s been geared for superior versatility.
