The Yamaha YBR 125 is a sought-after bike in the entry model segment for all the right reasons. Its popularity has even spawned successful returns in a number of countries, including India, China, some countries in Europe, and even some in Central and South American.

Of all the things that makes the YBR 125 a cool bike, it’s simplicity is arguably its best quality. It’s not flashy, nor does it scream for attention. This sports bike is all about being no-frills and that’s what makes it endearing to a lot of riders.

Then there’s the powertrain, which isn’t powerful by any stretch of the imagination, but where it lacks in power, it makes up for in being a bike that can be relied upon. The YBR 125’s 123 cc air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC engine can produce 10.7 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 10.4 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm to go with a six-speed transmission.

Suffice to say, the YBR 125 is about as good a bike as you can get without having to spend too much on a machine.
