Yes, the R125 will be equipped with a VVA setup, to make the ride through city traffic an utterly effortless one. Keep in mind though, that it’s still sportbike and would have racing ergonomics but with a peppy pickup, the 125 ccs enough would feel right at home on the city streets.
2: USD Forks
The updated model comes with golden coloured upside down forks. These will definitely improve the handling of the bike.
3: Revised Geometry
Just like its cousin The R15 V3, the 125 also features a revised Delta box frame which is much sportier than the last generation. The bike looks more compact and the rake angle has been reduced for increased agility in the corner.
4: Lighter and Stronger
The 2019 YZF-R125 features a 140/70 section rear tyre, same as that of R3 and the new swingarm is made out of Aluminum to save weight. This increases the bike’s stability in corners and on the highway at higher speeds.
5: More Comfortable
The padded seat of the R125 is much more forgiving than the previous version's. Although it increases the overall seat height of the bike, once the rider settles in, he can easily ride for long in the comfortable saddle. The new YZF-R125 has been showcased with three brand new colours, Yamaha Blue, Tech Black, and Competition White. The bike makes around 14.75 BHP of power and 12.4 Nm of torque while maintaining a weight of 142 Kg (kerb). The engine on the bike is a liquid cooled 4-Valve Fuel injected engine which has a single cylinder. The fuel tank capacity of the R125 is same as the R15 V3 at 11-litres, while the height is 825 mm. The updated design of the motorcycle features twin LED lights, redesigned tank and rear subframe along with the engine cowl. The instrument cluster on the bike is new and so is the Clipon handlebar. The bike will be launched during the month of November, and it will only be launched in the international market.
