Inspired by the legendary YZF-R1 and developed with pure R-Series DNA, the all-new YZF-R125 is engineered to give you more power, precision and control. The new YZF-R125 engine is the most sophisticated 125cc design we've ever built. Its new Variable Valve Actuation system and new high-flow cylinder head deliver stronger low rpm torque and more high rpm power – giving quicker acceleration, faster pick up, a higher top speed and better fuel efficiency. Aggressive new YZF-R1-derived bodywork and dual LED headlights project a strong and forceful look – and the refined Deltabox frame together with a new aluminium swingarm and wider 140-section rear tyre reaffirm the new YZF-R125 as the ultimate lightweight supersport. Re-define your reality. All this, topped off with a 2 year warranty AND 1 year Roadside Assistance, do you need any more reasons to choose the R125?

YAMAHA YZF-R125 (2019-on)
MCN Rating 4 out of 5 View full MCN ratings
Owners' Rating 5 out of 5 View full owners' ratings

MCN overall review verdict: The outgoing Yamaha YZF-R125 was already a fantastic introduction to motorcycling, winning MCN’s 2018 sports 125 group test. For 2019, Yamaha have taken this recipe and made it even better, with a purposeful new face, better engine and class-leading handling to boot. Related: this bike appears in our Best 125cc Motorbikes article With an 825mm seat height, the European-built bike will favour the taller rider, however remained perfectly manageable for this 5ft6in tester. With more mid-range, no longer are you constantly chasing the higher RPMs to keep up with the traffic and out in the twisties, the improved ergonomics, wider rear tyre and boosted top-end make it a pleasure to chuck around. In May 2019 Yamaha unveiled a race-livery version of the 2019 YZF-R125 that matched the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP bikes ridden by Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales. Learning to ride a motorbike? Our man is too! The YZF-R125 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition is expected to hit showrooms by the end of May 2019 priced at £4699, which is £200 more than the standard model. Ever since Yamaha launched their R-series styled entry-level sportsbike a decade ago it’s loitered menacingly at the top of the sales charts, and at McDonald's drive-throughs.
