The Yamaha YBR125 Custom is a compact motorcycle powered by a small 124cc, 4-stroke engine that cranks out a maximum power of 7.5 kW (10.0PS) at 7,800 rpm and 9.6 Nm (0.98 kg-m) of torque at 6,000 rpm.

The engine is fed by a 12-litre teardrop fuel tank which features a distinctive style that underlines the classic appearance of the motorcycle. In terms of design you’ll certainly like the old school headlight with its shiny case, the twin chromed dials that keep you posted on vital stats and the wide and comfortable saddle. Talking about comfort, besides the saddle, the ergonomic handlebars are also playing a major role in offering the rider a relaxed riding position. For more versatility, Yamaha also added a rear carrier with integral grab rail.

The motorcycle’s speed is kept in check by a front hydraulic single disc (245 mm) and a rear drum brake (130 mm).
