The R-Series continues to set the bar high, offering the widest range of exhilarating supersport models on the market. With its winning track record in prestigious racing championships, it has established itself as the definitive family of high-performance machines. The R125 is the latest addition to the R-Series, reaffirming Yamaha's commitment to providing riders with the most exceptional high-performance riding experience.
The 2023 R125 has been designed for young and uncompromising supersport riders at the start of their relationship with the R-Series. It features a new design that underlines its status as Yamaha's ultimate lightweight supersport. The bike has a powerful new LED headlight, aerodynamic fairing, vented tank covers, and new 5-inch full-colour TFT instruments. These features, combined with the bike's new traction control system, smartphone connectivity, and pre-wiring for a quick shifter, make it a standout among its peers.
The R125's design has been influenced by the R7, Yamaha's latest addition to the R-Series. Its bi-functional LED headlight sits in an M-shaped nose that gives the bike a radical new appearance. The TFT instruments offer two different graphic themes: "Street" and "Track," which match different riding situations. The new smartphone connectivity, accessed through Yamaha's MyRide app, allows riders to see incoming calls and texts on the TFT screen and monitor key bike parameters.
The R125's design includes race-bred technology such as the Deltabox frame and radial mount front brake caliper, and it has a torque-rich 125cc EURO5 4-stroke engine with VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) and an A&S clutch. The bike has KYB 41mm upside-down front forks, a lightweight cast aluminum swingarm, and a 2-channel ABS.
The R125 is available in Icon Blue and Tech Black colours and will be available in Europe from February 2023. For more information on availability and local pricing, customers should contact their national Yamaha distributor. The R-Series continues to inspire riders with its pure R-Series DNA and groundbreaking technology, offering an exceptional high-performance riding experience for riders of all skill levels.
