Born for free spirits
It’s the newest bike in Yamaha’s Sport Heritage line up, and comes with a premium specification that includes LED lights and full LCD instruments just like the larger capacity XSR700 and XSR900 – as well as a lightweight Deltabox frame and USD front forks that give a confident and comfortable ride.
More than anything, the new XSR125 is all about becoming part of Yamaha’s stylish and unique Faster Sons movement that includes a whole package of clothing and accessories that match your attitude. It’s the sure way to having more fun and freedom, and is ready to make things happen for you.
Best-in-class 125cc EU5 engine
Delivering a full 11kW – the maximum power allowed in the A1 category – the best-in-class engine is the same as the MT-125 and YZF-R125 design, and features Yamaha’s sophisticated Variable Valve Actuation system that ensures optimum power and torque for strong performance and lively acceleration. Fully EU5-compliant design ensures minimal emissions.
Pure and timeless XSR styling
With its strong horizontal line, the XSR125’s pure and timeless Faster Sons styling is influenced by Yamaha’s larger capacity XSR700 and XSR900 Sport Heritage models. Combining retro design features such as the rounded fuel tank, long flat seat and circular lights with the very latest engine and chassis technology, the XSR125 pays homage to the past while looking ahead to the future.
37 mm USD front forks
Featuring a pure black finish that is coordinated with the frame and wheel colour to emphasise the cool retro style, the 37 mm USD front forks give you a smooth and confident ride. Along with the Deltabox frame, 17-inch wheels, 1330 mm wheelbase and 815 mm seat height, this specification makes the XSR125’s adaptable chassis ideally suited to riders of all sizes.
Stylish block pattern tyres
The XSR125’s lightweight 10-spoke alloy wheels are fitted with great-looking block pattern tyres that provide plenty of traction. The combination of a 140/70-17 rear tyre and a 110/70-17 front tyre gives a confident and predictable handling feeling, making this agile lightweight one of the best ways to explore the city.
High-tech LED headlight and taillight
The classic-style round headlight and round taillight are perfect examples of how the XSR125 blends retro cool with up to the minute technology. Using substantially less power than conventional lights while giving a much brighter beam, the full LED headlight turns night into day – while the compact LED tail light gives the bike’s rear end a clean and pure look.
Strong and light Deltabox frame
What distinguishes Yamaha 125cc models from other bikes in the class is the Deltabox frame. Featuring twin spars that run in a straight line from the steering head to the swingarm pivot for optimum strength, this advanced design provides precise and predictable handling and easy steering for maximum riding confidence.
Despite the affordable price tag the XSR125 comes with a wide range of premium details that underline its outstanding specification and impressive value for money. As well as the LED lighting for both headlight and taillight and new full LCD meter, this class-leading lightweight is equipped with painted mudguards as well as a tuck and roll seat and aluminium brackets.
Circular LCD Meter
Featuring a satin black body and bright chrome surround, the circular meter perfectly complements the classic round headlamp to give the XSR125 a truly timeless appeal that looks right in any situation. Featuring a contemporary negative LCD display, the meter is a perfect example of how heritage design can work well with modern technology.
