Yamaha YZF-R 125 boasts of the all new liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 4-valve, single cylinder, SOHC 124.66cc engine. Now it can generate more torque enhanced by the longer stroke. The engine is a 52mm bore and 58.6mm stroke with an impressive 11.2:1 compression ratio. The free-revving, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine is fuel injected for near-instant throttle response, while a 6-speed gearbox regulates the power ban. This bike crawls at the slow pace if and when the clutch is engaged fully. And when the throttle is opened it shots for a smooth drive.
Design And Comfort
The New YZF-R125 comes with a rift of bewitching features several of which are digital dash, sophisticated brakes and well curved GP-style exhaust. As part of R-series, it comes with the advanced MotoGp technology and R-type engine and chassis features. The well crafted R6-inspired body is awe-inspiring and reaches the acme. It is very comfortable to ride on this unpretentious little machine. The footpegs are well laid in the reasonable height and the handlebars are mounted on the fork tops to give a high end ride. With the soft-spongy seat, we can certainly enjoy a drive on this bike for the personal proof and experience.
Ride And Handling
The YZF-R125 is not the same bike as we can expect from other top end super bikes. It is as good as it is priced. The bike has a steel frame and a basic suspension, which are the welcome features compared to the price. The 33mm diameter front forks are designed to serve hassle free steering along with the high ride quality. It easily combats the bumps and lurches on rough city roads. A lightweight Deltabox frame which connects to a cast aluminium swinging-arm ensures an excellent handling capability. R125 does not prove a flaw even for the tall riders as it provides a very comfortable riding position. Inheriting the unmatched style and attitude of R-series, the bike stands to hold the rein of bike buffs with the indicated top speed of 80mph.
