YZF-R125 Team Yamaha Race Replica
The fast track to the Rossi experience
Born from the supersport DNA of the R1 and R6, the YZF-R125 has R-series style
and attitude. Its free-revving, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine is fuel injected for nearinstant throttle response, while a 6-speed gearbox lets you keep it in the power
band. A lightweight Deltabox frame linked to a cast aluminium swinging-arm delivers
class-leading handling. And, because it’s full-sized, the R125 provides a comfortable
riding position – even for taller riders. With an eager 125cc engine, a race-bred
chassis and striking R-series bodywork in official Team Yamaha livery – the YZF-R125
is the perfect introduction to supersport riding.

MotoGP is the world’s leading motorcycle racing series
featuring the world’s top professional riders, and multiple
World Champion Valentino Rossi is one of the sport’s
biggest names. The YZF-R125 Team Yamaha Race Replica
is a special edition inspired by MotoGP and features
the same striking blue and white paint and graphics as
Valentino Rossi’s MotoGP bike. Racing is a major influence
on the design of Yamaha’s R-series, and the YZF-R125 is
no different. The R125 shares the same aggressive styling
as the bigger R-series bikes and the same racing spirit.
With styling inspired by a racing legend, the YZF-R125
Team Yamaha Race Replica gives you a taste of the
Rossi experience.

Official Team Yamaha
Large diameter
front disc-brake
Inspired by the winning performance of
Valentino Rossi and the Yamaha MotoGP
team, the YZF-R125 Race Replica features
graphics to match. The distinctive blue and
white paint and sponsors match Rossi’s
YZR-M1 bike and, combined with the
sculpted bodywork, the YZF-R125 looks
just like a competition machine.
Yamaha is committed to using highspecification components – like the large
diameter 292mm front disc brake on the
YZF-R125. The compact twin-pot caliper
design on the front-brake combined with
the 230mm rear disc ensures smooth,
controlled braking at a range of speeds and
assured stopping power when you need it.
Liquid-cooled 4-stroke
single-cylinder 125cc engine
R6-style mid-ship muffler
The YZF-R125’s advanced engine combines
a 4-valve cylinder head and fuel-injection
for the best possible performance.
The short stroke layout gives the engine
a free-revving character, which when
connected to the 6-speed gearbox delivers
lively acceleration.
The mid-ship exhaust muffler helps to
centralise the bike’s mass for balanced
handling, and houses dual catalysers
for cleaner emissions. In addition, an
Air Induction System introduces air
into the exhaust for more complete
combustion of exhaust gases, lowering
emissions even further.
R-series style bodywork
Instrument panel
With R-series style front cowling and twin
fox-eye headlights, the YZF-R125 has the
same aggressive supersport styling as
the R1 and R6. Unlike many 125cc bikes,
the R125 is built on a full-sized chassis
providing a more comfortable riding
position – especially for taller riders.
The combined digital and analogue panel
speedometer provides a clear view of all
the bike’s vital functions at a glance.
