Its free-revving, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine is fuel injected for near-instant throttle response, while a 6-speed gearbox lets you keep it in the power band. A lightweight Deltabox frame linked to a cast aluminium swinging-arm delivers class-leading handling.
And, because it's full-sized, the R125 provides a comfortable riding position - even for taller riders.
With an eager 125cc engine, a race-bred chassis and striking R-series bodywork in official Team Yamaha livery - the YZF-R125 is the perfect introduction to supersport riding.
Inspired by a Moto GP Legend
MotoGP is the world's leading motorcycle racing series featuring the world's top professional riders, and multiple World Champion Valentino Rossi is one of the sport's biggest names. The YZF-R125 Team Yamaha Race Replica is a special edition inspired by MotoGP and features the same striking blue and white paint and graphics as Valentino Rossi's MotoGP bike. Racing is a major influence on the design of Yamaha's R-series, and the YZF-R125 is no different. The R125 shares the same aggressive styling as the bigger R-series bikes and the same racing spirit. With styling inspired by a racing legend, the YZF-R125 Team Yamaha Race Replica gives you a taste of the Rossi experience.
Official Team Yamaha graphics
Inspired by the winning performance of Valentino Rossi and the Yamaha MotoGP team, the YZF-R125 Race Replica features graphics to match. The distinctive blue and white paint and sponsors match Rossi's YZR-M1 bike and, combined with the sculpted bodywork, the YZF-R125 looks just like a competition machine.
Large diameter front disc-brake
Yamaha is committed to using high specification components - like the large diameter 292 mm front disc brake on the YZF-R125. The compact twin-pot caliper design on the front-brake combined with the 230 mm rear disc ensures smooth, controlled braking at a range of speeds and assured stopping power when you need it.
Liquid-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder 125cc engine
The YZF-R125's advanced engine combines a 4-valve cylinder head and fuel-injection for the best possible performance. The short stroke layout gives the engine a free-revving character, which when connected to the 6-speed gearbox delivers lively acceleration.
R6-style mid-ship muffler
The mid-ship exhaust muffler helps to centralise the bike's mass for balanced handling, and houses dual catalysers for cleaner emissions. In addition, an Air Induction System introduces air into the exhaust for more complete combustion of exhaust gases, lowering emissions even further.
R-series style bodywork
With R-series style front cowling and twin fox-eye headlights, the YZF-R125 has the same aggressive supersport styling as the R1 and R6. Unlike many 125cc bikes, the R125 is built on a full-sized chassis providing a more comfortable riding position - especially for taller riders.
The combined digital and analogue panel speedometer provides a clear view of all the bike's vital functions at a glance.
