2014 Yamaha R125

Yamaha has unveiled an update to their best-selling YZF-R125 entry-level supersports machine for 2014. The update includes a more radical looking front end designed around the multi-championship winning YZF-R6.

The new fairing gives the 2014 model an image that according to Yamaha ‘accentuates its R-series DNA and race-bred heritage’

The chassis also sees an upgrade including a new front suspension design which sees the bike equipped with upside down front forks, just like the R1 and R6, with the aim of ensuring better stability and front-wheel feedback. The R125 also sees a redesigned rear suspension linkage system designed to increase the level of rider and passenger comfort.

The fuel injection system also receives an upgrade to a new high-efficiency system, which Yamaha claim improves fuel efficiency by around 11%. The 2014 model is also equipped with a radial front caliper and floating front disc brake.

The upgrade also sees the introduction of a completely re-designed instrumentation featuring a brand new-multifunction LCD unit.

Lightweight, Y-spoke alloy wheels also feature on the 2014 model with the rear brake pedal, shift lever and passenger footrest brackets all made out of aluminium.

Colours available include Mat Grey, Anodized Red and Race Blu.
