2021 Yamaha BWs 125 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
  • Potent Fuel Injected Engine
    BWs 125’s fuel-injected, 125cc single cylinder, 4-stroke engine pumps out lots of power for its size, using an SOHC 4-valve head with 10:1 compression ratio and ceramic-composite cylinder plating. Fuel injection provides the optimal fuel mixture for varying conditions, and that means easy cold starts, too.
  • Electric Starter
    Push-button electric starting makes the BWs 125 super-convenient for transportation.
  • Modern Reliability
    For reliability and easy maintenance, simple wet-sump lubrication is used. Forced air cooling system helps keep engine temperatures under control, even while idling at stoplights, for maximum efficiency and longer engine life.
  • Automatic Convenience
    Fully automatic, V-belt transmission with centrifugal clutch provides easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation with great off-the-line acceleration.
  • Ready to Get Dirty
    Oiled-paper type air filter helps trap dirt before it gets to your engine, even when riding on unpaved roads. The V-belt housing has its own off-road-style wet-foam air filter for durability.
  • Clean-Running Design
    Upswept muffler incorporates exhaust catalyst technology to reduce air pollution and meet emission regulations.
  • Hardy Steel Frame
    Robust steel-tube frame is light but strong, and features a step-through design for easy mounting. A two-stage electrostatic painting process provides a durable, corrosion-resistant finish.
  • Durable Suspension
    Telescopic fork features beefy outer tubes for strength, while fork boots help protect the large 33mm inner tubes from debris. The swingarm features twin rear shocks with a full 3.1 in of travel for riding comfort on the street and unpaved roads, too.
  • Generous Fuel Range
    Fuel tank holds 1.7 gallons for plenty of cruising range. Fuel tank emissions system includes a charcoal canister to control gasoline evaporation and reduce air pollution.
  • Heavy-Duty Tires and Wheels
    Fat 120/70-12 front and 130/70-12 rear tires have an aggressive looking block pattern for great handling on unpaved roads and on the street. Tires run on lightweight five-spoke die-cast aluminum wheels.
  • High Quality Braking
    245mm hydraulic front disc and 200mm rear disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power while the wave-type front rotor design adds cutting-edge style.
  • Comfortable Ergonomics
    A plush and roomy riding position is ready for two, with a narrow seat design for easier flat-footing at stops, and plenty of leg space in front of the rider’s seat. Meanwhile, the passenger gets secure handholds that blend cleanly into the BWs 125’s body design.
  • Aggressive Headlights and Styling
    Two bright halogen headlights light the way, with the sculpted bodywork smoothly wrapping around the aggressive lighting design.
  • Plenty of Storage
    The underseat storage compartment’s cavernous 7.7-gallon capacity is roomy enough for a full-face helmet, while a cup holder and fold-out cargo hook on the dash makes it easy to bring it all with you.
  • Modern Gauge Package
    The BWs 125’s stylish LCD meter features a fuel gauge as well as a full range of indicator lights.
  • Secure and Convenient
    BWs 125 provides both a centerstand and side stand for parking convenience. For extra security when parked, the main switch is equipped with a keyhole lock cover. And the fuel filler is found just left of the ignition switch for easy refueling.
