Today's bike of the day is the L-plate friendly Yamaha YZF-R125. With updates announced at Intermot in November, the bike is MCN's current sports 125 group test winner and lusted after by 17 year olds across the country. It's the ideal starting point for any budding sportsbike enthusiast.
Launched in 2008, the Yamaha was part of a new wave of four-stroke 125 race replicas, which replaced the more exotic, temperamental two-stroke machines that came before it, such as Aprilia's RS125.
Although more mechanically reliable, it is still important to look out for all the usual signs of crash damage and oil starvation upon purchase, as most of these bikes will have been owned by novices, meaning drops, slow speed offs and DIY maintenance are not unlikely.
Now in its tenth year of production, there is a huge range of used bikes available for every budget. Why not find yours on MCN Bikes For Sale today?
