Yamaha YZF R125 will be a substitute to two strokes

Yamaha once ruled the Indian streets with their two strokes. Yamaha two stroke motorcycles were humming every where. Some where in early 2000 Yamaha took the decision to exit two strokes from India due to pollution and sound norms.

It seems the fun of riding a two stroke will be returned but this time it will have a 125cc four stroke engine, the Yamaha YZF R125. Most of we in India specially beginners modify their little two stroke machine to make it look like a race machine, this time Yamaha has done it all, instead of two stroke the ride is four stroke and gives all the pleasure of a two.

Let’s have a closer look at this fun machine.

If this machine really comes to India it will be better styled ride than the Yamaha YZF R15 in accordance to its looks and features. Yamaha YZF R125 in India . like other international markets, will be having a single cylinder 124cc liquid cooled engine, the engine is good enough to produce 14.6 bhp, now that’s lots of power from such a small piece. If we compare this machine to the two stroke 135cc Yamaha RXZ, the power generation is similar.

Yamaha has successfully put the power of two stroke in four stroke keeping engine displacement on the lower side.  The pickup power of the ride is again similar to two strokes thanks to its longer stroke. Upfront receives Brembo brakes we should expect similar brake make when the ride comes to India.

The engine runs smooth throughout, till the needle reaches the red line.

New Yamaha YZF R125 is a complete little sports bike with split seats and cues styling to the Yamaha YZF R6. YZF R125 has steel frame and unadjustable basic suspension, the ride quality is good for city riding. Front forks and rear shocks allows sorted damping, keeps the bike under control and are not harsh.

The suspension should work pretty well on Indian roads.

Like the YZF R15, the Yamaha YZF R125 in India will be having similar kind of digital dash dominated by analog tachometer. Yamaha YZF R125 may be equipped with Brembo brakes when the ride comes to India and has GP styled exhaust. The body is fully Yamaha R6 inspired, it would be a dream machine for all the two stroker’s when the ride comes to India. Riding this machine will be really fun and will be most wanted among the teenagers.

Handle bar is mounted on fork tops so that your wrist don’t take hammering. Many will find the seats too high but that’s okay and should be manageable in most of the cases.

Yamaha YZF-R125

Currently these 125cc performance motorcycles are manufactured in Europe and most of them are sold in the local market. If the new Yamaha YZF R125 comes to India we can expect its build quality similar to Yamaha YZF R15.

Don’t expect this ride to fall in similar price pattern like the Bajaj Discover DTSI or a Honda Stunner, it will be priced high. Yamaha YZF R125 price in India may settle in between Rs75,000 to Rs80,000 on road, since it’s a performance packed machine and also takes you away from the drawbacks of those old two stroke motorcycles.
