2016 Yamaha YZF-R125 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Liquid-cooled 4-stroke single cylinder engine
Featuring a free-revving short-stroke configuration, the liquid-cooled 125cc 4-stroke engine drives though a slick-shifting 6-speed gearbox to give ultra-responsive acceleration. Equipped with a highly efficient fuel injection system, the latest generation YZF-R125 delivers thrilling performance with outstanding fuel economy.
Lightweight aluminium chassis components
R-Series DNA is evident in the light and immensely strong aluminium swinging arm which ensures precision handling and confident roadholding. A redesigned rear linkage gives even greater riding comfort, and with the brake pedal, shift lever and passenger footrests all made from aluminium, the YZF-R125 has a leading specification.
Multi function LCD instrumentation
The YZF-R125 is equipped with one of the most sophisticated LCD instrument panels seen on a 125cc bike. Its comprehensive backlit display includes a digital speedometer with a bar type tachometer, and the advanced design also includes data on fuel level and fuel consumption, as well as distance and range trip meters.
With its aggressive twin headlight fairing and central air intake, there’s no mistaking the R-series heritage in the latest YZF-R125. The new generation R6-inspired front cowl gives this class-leading 125cc supersport a genuine big-bike look and feel, and the slippery aerodynamic bodywork is ready to slice through the air for maximum riding excitement.
High-rigidity upside down forks
Just like the legendary R1 and WSS-winning R6, the YZF-R125 is now equipped with upside down front forks which offer high levels of rigidity for precise and responsive handling characteristics. To emphasize the R-series racing heritage the front fender features a carbon-look finish, giving the latest YZF-R125 a real big-bike character.
Lightweight race-bred wheels
Newly-designed lightweight wheels utilize a race-bred multi-spoke design featuring thin Y-shaped spokes that contribute to a low unsprung weight for responsive suspension action and precise handling. And with a 100/80-17 front tyre and wide section 130/70-17 rear tyre, this 125cc superport bike is built to slice though the bends.
High specification brakes with optional ABS
Available with optional ABS, the YZF-R125’s advanced new braking system is a spin off from our larger-capacity R-series models. Featuring a floating 297mm diameter disc, the high specification radially mounted caliper is designed to deliver strong and effective braking performance and outstanding initial response.
