2009 Yamaha WR125X and WR125R new for 2009

Published: 08 September 2008

Yamaha will look to bolster its sales in the 125 market with the introduction of two new models to line-up alongside the YZF-R125, the WR125X supermoto and WR125R enduro.

The new motorcycles follow along the same lines as the popular Yamaha YZF-R125 with full-sized chassis designs and the same 124.7cc liquid-cooled four stroke engine.

The new models will give an alternative to the already available WR250X and R with a newly-designed diamond-shaped steel frame and an enduro racing-style tank and seat.

These two motorbikes come with 41mm front forks and a seven-preload-adjustable rear shock.

Both also come with lightweight aluminium wheels, with the WR125R getting the same 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels that are fitted to the manufactures WR250F enduro race bike.

Stopping power is bolstered with the WR125X Supermoto getting a 298mm front disc with a floating two-pot calliper while the WR125R Enduro has a slightly bigger 240mm wavy disc at the front with the same floating calliper layout.

Both have a single disc and single calliper setup for the rear braking system.

And to complete the appeal, both machines come with a LCD display.

The WR125X will come in Racing Blue and Sports White, while the WR125R will be available in Racing Blue and Yamaha Black.
