Why it’s MCN’s Pick:
Having an A1 license doesn’t mean you can’t have a sporty bike. There’s plenty of options out there, but Yamaha’s 125cc version of its acclaimed YZF-R6 is one of the best.
Looking good is even more important when you’ve only got 14.6hp to play with, and the Yamaha doesn’t disappoint (it’s actually slightly bigger than the 600cc bike it’s based on).
The long piston stroke of the 4-stroke single gives the engine smooth, useable power throughout the rev range and a top speed of 80mph will interest anyone stepping up from a moped.
What the dealer says:
“The ultimate sporty Yamaha 125cc race style bike.”
