Yamaha YZF-R125 quick ride

Andy Davidson, 20 June 2014 09:30

Yamaha knows how to play the 125cc field. Since the launch of the YZF-R125 in ’08, the firm has sold over 45,000 machines and the sports bike remains a best seller to this day. The revamped 2014 YZF-R125’s main changes are sturdier USD forks and quality brakes. The difference is certainly noticeable as the refreshed model can take a heavier ...

Yamaha MT-125 first ride

Andy Davidson, 19 June 2014 14:04

The new Yamaha MT-125 marks the third arrival in the MT family. The single-cylinder is technically a naked version of Yamaha’s refreshed-for-2014 YZF-R125 except with an upright riding position and street fighter design, taking its styling cues from its MT-09 and 07 siblings. So we have an already great bike, peppered with upgraded components, for less money than the faired ...

Staff Blog: Well, that’ll be autumn then!

Alison Silcox, 03 October 2013 09:33

  Riding in this morning I’ve had to give in and fully kit up in cordura. Looking out of the bedroom window at 7.30 it was really quite murky and living in the middle of a housing estate if it’s murky outside our house I know it’s going to be worse heading towards the A1. I knew it was time ...
