2016 Yamaha BWS 125 Review

2016 Yamaha BWS 125 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Crank up the fun…

The fun loving BWs 125 has undergone a significant makeover for ’15. Not only is the styling all new, but we’ve also increased the under seat storage capacity, added a new digital meter assembly and a new rear disc brake. Not stopping there, the front disc brake diameter has been increased and features a new, more powerful twin piston caliper, the roominess of the cockpit has been increased, and there is a cool new headlight too. Powered by a fuel injected 125 cc engine, the sporty BWs 125 makes a great urban or suburban commuter.

/// Engine
Peppy, 125cc, air-cooled (with fan assist), SOHC, 4-valve, 4-stroke engine produces solid, predictable power and excellent fuel economy.

/// Storage
Ultra-convenient, large 29 litre, locking under seat storage compartment can hold selected full-face helmets or other items such as a laptop computer, rain suit, etc.

/// Fuel Economy
Fuel consumption of approximately 37kpl/105mpg. Your actual consumption may vary.
