Yamaha unveiled its latest offering for the European two-wheeler market in the form of the new MT-125. The Japanese manufacturer is promoting the new 125cc bike as a commuter bike for young riders. What the Yamaha MT-125 actually is the stripped off version of the highly popular faired offering, the YZF- R125. The design of the new bike has been based on its elder siblings, the MT-07 and MT-09. The MT-125 sports a beefy and neatly sculpted fuel tank, single headlamp with integrated LED day lights and a compact instrument cluster above it.
The M-125 features a smartphone inspired all-digital LCD instrument console panel that features a bar style display sporting a shift light, speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meter etc. In sync with modern streetbike design philosophy, that is mass-forward, the MT-125 has a short and compact tail compared to the bulky front. The LED tailamp is neatly tucked away inside the rear cowl and the stepped seats further enhance the stance of the bike. The multiple Y-spoke rims gel nicely with the overall design, the only detail we found off on the bike was the R6 inspired endcan that doesn’t flow with the overall profile.
Powering the MT-125 is a 124.7cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor churning out 15PS and the bike tips the scale at 126kg (dry weight). Although, the MT-125 is based on the R125, it sports a different fuel tank, seat, handlebar and footpegs to suit the upright seating position of a streetbike. The steel delta box frame used on the new bike is similar to its faired sibling, the only difference being the steering rake handle that has been hiked to 33.5 degree to allow better handling dynamics and maneuverability in city traffic conditions. Suspension duties are taken care of by a beefy 41mm USD forks at front and a monoshock with preload adjustment at rear. For braking, the Yamaha M-125 employs a 292mm single floating front disc with radially mounted caliper, and a 230mm disc at rear. Yamaha hasn’t revealed the pricing of the M-125 yet but have announced that it will be on sale in the European markets by July 2014 and will be available in colour options of red, blue and grey.
