Super light weight, instantaneous power, less expensive to maintain, and reduced noise. We can run off more things to describe the new Yamaha YZ125, but we get the feeling that you already get the point.
With the advent of all those four-stroke bikes proliferating the market these days, it would seem like an easy thing to do to just let the two-stroke models wash away into the ocean, but not Yamaha . Always known for putting customer preferences to heart, the Japanese bikemaker has brought new life to the two-stroke YZ line-up with the introduction of the new YZ125.
The YZ125 features class-leading power flowing from a liquid-cooled, 124cc crankcase-reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine that feeds through a close-ratio six-speed transmission for outstanding acceleration. Corner-exiting power and state-of-the-art handling capabilities comes courtesy of an advanced aluminum frame and swingarm, making he YZ125 about as good a two-stroke bike as you’ll find in the market these days.
The fact that it’s stamped with a Yamaha logo only adds more appeal and comfort.
