Yamaha has launched the 2020 edition of its quirky BW’S 125 scooter in Japan. The 125cc scooter attempts to combine the practicality of a scooter with the ruggedness of a dirt bike. For 2020, the BW’S 125 gets colour updates while underpinnings and powertrain remain unchanged.

The rugged-looking scooter gets off-road motorcycle influences in the form of chunky tyres, long-travel suspension, raised mudguard, exposed handlebar, knuckle guards and a rear rack. Features include an apron-mounted fuel filler cap, 29-litre underseat storage plus a cubbyhole on the front apron, digital instrument console and a quirky twin-beam halogen headlamp setup that includes a projector beam. For 2020, the Yamaha BW’S 125 gets a new Dark Blueish (sic) Gray paint job in addition to the previous Vivid Yellow colour scheme.

The Yamaha BW’S 125 is powered by a 124cc air-cooled and fuel-injected motor that delivers 9.8PS at 7500rpm and 9.9Nm at 6000rpm. Power is delivered to the rear wheel via a variomatic transmission.

The scooter gets 12-inch alloy wheels with fat 12-section front and 130-section rear dual-purpose tubeless tyres. Braking is via disc brakes at both ends.
