to everybody who wants to develop riding skills or simply like having loads of fun on a from which they can get the best out of, the two TT-R models with the awesome-performing 125cc SOHC 4-…, two-valves and the impressive YZ design that surely have teenagers beg for it.

And if they actually have wishes accomplished, there be no problems with controlling the Having a seat height of than 32 inches, it can be kept under control by all kinds of but we also have to consider its ground clearance (over 10 and long-travel suspension.

Both are fitted with an electric and mechanics don’t differ as you can see by checking out the specs sheet. But you’ll notice different is the that the “E” model a 17-inch front and 14-inch wheel while the “LE” out higher with 19-inch respectively 16-inch rear dimensions.

This last model comes with longer travel suspension (6.6-inches of 6.3-inches on the “E”) and a 220mm brake disc. Ground is also bigger in the case of the (11.6-inches instead of 10.4-inches on the

Even though not very the one from the other, they do to offer the same kind of but at whole different levels.

Yamaha had orientated on entry-level bikes in 2000, which is late, considering that have to be hooked up from the first start in order to faithful to a certain manufacturer. But the had come to conquer this and it did it with its light weight and four-… power.

Properly reliable and a real companion on rider’s evolutionary graphic that may be), the TT-R125 in two different size versions, the featuring an “L” at the end of the bike’s which stood for larger on the actual motorcycle. The TT-R125L had a 1.2-inches taller seat (30.1-inches on the simple TT-R).

this simple and efficient Yamaha managed to sell such bikes than it have with a single And the best thing for this is that it didn’t even to radically upgrade these but simply bring them up to with decals and stylistic as the YZ models changed during the


For the same price, offers the greatest opponent for the the DR-Z125 ($2,699). The Suzuki its roots from the RM-Z bikes, but only in what the visual aspects. The engine is the 125cc four-…, air-cooled, OHC and the feature drums instead of just like on the Yamaha.

You can buy the DR-Z125L for 100 bucks less the TT-R125LE. The $2,899 MSRP a lot of this maker’s marketing and, as the TT-R125LE, the DR-Z125L with larger wheels and brakes up front.

Kawasaki is in for power and speed with the and KLX140L. They get it out in both from the 144cc four-…, two-valve single. The difference is that the small bike disc brakes (220mm petal disc) on its 17” wheel as well as on its 14” one (186mm single petal

All that for only $2,799!

In the of the KLX140L, the wheels grow (19-, respectively 16-inch), as as the MSRP ($3,099).


The would say “decals changed and all folks”, but we’re not like What we must admit is stylistically, the bikes have a feel for 2009, even mechanically they are pretty the same.

Easy to be confused with bikes as they don’t a headlight, but only a number the 125cc TT-R models disappoint in any matter. The low positioned fender gives a clue it not being designed for the track, but for the trails and that is noticeable when jumping with it enough.

Race-inspired side and two-tone seat are great on any but on the TT-R models they are greater as they complete the racing looks of the bike. this is exactly the purpose of the Yamaha Blue/White color

Test Ride

Riding of the 125s is fun and confidence inspiring. The air-cooled, SOHC four-…; 2 engine is smooth, but not docile, capable of putting a smile on any face and keep it there for a long time. Pushbutton starting immediately hot or cold, the powerplant is tuned to deliver low-and midrange rushes in all of the gears without any unwanted The exhaust note is consistent, but not at all.

Beginning and intermediate riders definitely be impressed by the instant response coming from 20mm Mikuni carburetor for the experienced crowd, it will be an expected aspect, one worthy of

Apart from the engine, the two also feature the same and cable-actuated clutch. The five unit is precise and easy to with while the clutch is and pulls so easily that I found myself using too fingers. Also, it showed no of weakness when being released while getting out of corners.

In what concerns the things start to change a bit. The frame is the same, but on the model you get a pair of 19-inch and 16-inch rear wheels. unlike the 17-inch front and rear wheels of the “E” are more capable of dealing the off-road terrain.

The jumps are absorbed compared to the “E” also thanks to the 6.6 inches of at the rear and the bike also a little bit more stable.

a 31.7 inches high the larger model is a real up bike compared to the base which features a 30.5 seat. The difference isn’t big, but considering the wheels you really feel like on a totally different bike jumping from one to another. you also get a 220 mm single disc up instead of a 110 mm drum, so the overall big feel is completed from the time a rider will the brake lever with expectations.

Either way, the bikes easy and handling is the most thing. The front end complies with the direction that the indicates and the rear end always Sharp corners are no challenge for the two but more for beginning riders.

The grip on to the surface they on very well, but they necessarily need to stay on the don’t they. especially TT-R’s front end lift up the greatest easy if you know how and to help them with a pull.

A fairly short session left me with no for the suspensions on both the “E” and the model and ground clearance is than decent as well. You get an accurate feel of what riding means on these and in the end that’s their main


In relation to their the two Yamaha bikes, TT-R125E and TT-R125LE ($2,999) are positioned in the middle as the Suzuki models are cheaper and Kawasaki more but also slightly bigger in The choice is yours!


By checking out the 125cc bikes from Yamaha it seem they are being under the motto “a for everyone” as they can be indeed fun for all of you out especially if you are a parent and need to your kid. There’s no trainer than the one that next to you and experiences with you challenge and that is what plans on providing with the two motorcycles. Is it successful?

You tell me!
