The YZF-R125 will get a make-over to look more like the Team Yamaha MotoGP ’46’ bike of Valentino Rossi.
Yamaha’s comprehensive line-up of Race Replica machinery in the past year has already given scooter riders a chance to look like their racing heroes, but the new YZF-R125 Team Yamaha Race Replica takes the dream a little closer for fans of arguably the greatest rider to have graced the MotoGP grid.
The racetrack is a major influence on the design of Yamaha’s R-series, and the YZF-R125 is no different. The fresh features of striking blue and white paint and graphics of the distinctive ‘46’ MotoGP bike compliment the same aggressive R-series styling as the R1 and R6.
The YZF-R125 has been turning heads since its recent launch and now will capture the attention of MotoGP enthusiasts with its un-missable new coat. Under the skin the bike itself uses a free-revving, fuel injected, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine for near-instant throttle response. A lightweight Deltabox frame linked to a cast aluminium swinging-arm delivers exceptional handling. Due to its full-size, the R125 provides a comfortable riding position, even for taller riders, permitting some fun knee-down activity.
Combining an eager 125cc engine, a race-style chassis and striking R-series bodywork in official Team Yamaha livery – the YZF-R125 is the perfect introduction to supersport riding.
