Pick of the ads! Yamaha YZF-R125

Posted: 21 Jun 2013

WE SAY:

Yamaha’s YZF-R125 is a race-replica learner-legal, styled to mimic its R6 (600cc) and R1 (1000cc) brethren. Because of these reasons it’s a compact unit that riders of a tall stature (6ft+) may struggle to fit comfortably. This is a real shame because the YZF-R125 has the sharp, quick steering attributes of a larger capacity sports missile and truly gives owners their first taste of sports bike ownership. As a rule, 125cc learner bikes tend to get abused because it’s the owner’s first bike and he/she has no mechanical sympathy. But occasionally well cared bikes do appear and this YZF-R125 looks to have been supremely well looked after. Tell tale signs are the service bills, no major signs of damage and the fact the owner has only added quality accessories and retained the original parts. At the price shown, this bike represents good value compared to new, which is a bonus if you only a modern, stylish 125cc machine until passing your bike test.
