Donning a dazzling gold-laden livery the XSR125 Legacy Edition is BIG on style wrapped up in a SMALL package

Thanks to their classic looks, likable riding dynamics, and a variety of engine options, the Yamaha XSR’s have created a big name for themselves in their respective segments.

Now, to pay homage to this rich legacy of the XSR lineup, Yamaha has taken the wraps off a special Legacy Edition of the XSR125 that looks stunning as ever.

What you’re looking at here is the new-for-2022 XSR125 Legacy Edition!

For this special edition, the XSR125 dons a unique livery, dubbed ‘Historic Black’, which wraps the motorcycle in a glossy black base coat topped by striking silver and golden pinstripes on the fuel tank.

In addition to this, the livery also includes silver accents on the front fender, golden company logos, and a silver two-piece aluminum muffler cover.

This is topped by silver accents on the front fender and dazzling golden spoke wheels

While the livery is surely eye-catching, the most striking visual element, for me, is the special golden spoke wheels wrapped in dual-purpose rubber. Not only do these help the bike look extra premium and snazzy, but they also add to the bike’s retro charm, something you definitely expect on a bike called the ‘Legacy’ edition.

On a quick side note, the special livery looks just like the ‘Raven’ color option of the XSR700.

There are no changes to the engine and the bike uses the 125cc, single-cylinder engine, the same as the standard XSR125

Apart from these bits, everything else remains the same as the standard XSR125. So the bike draws power from a 124cc, single-cylinder engine, putting out 14.7 horsepower and 8.5 pound-feet.

The engine is housed in Yamaha’s signature delta box chassis, accompanied by 37mm USD forks and a mono-shock for optimal shock absorption.

And so does the round negative-LCD instrument cluster

Meanwhile, features on the XSR125 Legacy Edition are also the same as the standard XSR125, comprising front and rear LED lights, a negative-LCD instrument cluster, and a ribbed single-piece seat.

Yamaha hasn’t announced the official price of the XSR125 Legacy Edition yet. However, the company insists you get in touch with your nearest dealer for the same. For reference, the standard XSR125 is priced at $4,990 in Europe.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the bike will begin reaching dealerships from June 2022.
