The YZF-R125 has been developed from Yamaha’s race-winning R-series bikes, and features class-leading engine and chassis technology. With its full-sized Deltabox frame, liquid-cooled 4-valve engine featuring a MotoGP-type mid-ship muffler, and aerodynamic bodywork finished in the new WGP 50th Anniversary colours, the YZF-R125 is the way to go!

With its twin fox-eye headlights and sporty aerodynamic lines, the aggressively-styled YZF-R125 has the street presence of a much larger-capacity motorcycle. And just like our YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 supersport bikes, the class-leading YZF-R125 attracts attention wherever you go.

Unlike some other bikes in the 125 class, the YZF-R125 is equipped with a full-sized Deltabox chassis which gives a more comfortable riding position and delivers a real big-bike feel. Combined with the radical supersport bodywork, the great-handling race-bred chassis puts this bike in a class of its own.

The liquid-cooled 4-stroke 125cc engine delivers a wide range of strong performance. Its short-stroke layout makes for a free-revving character, while the fuel injection system and 4-valve cylinder head give lively acceleration. And with a 6-speed gearbox, the YZF-R125 is a great performer around town and on the open road.

Aluminium swinging arm
