New YZF-R125 brings Rossi MotoGP
style closer to the street
17th June 2009
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.
