Yamaha has taken the wraps off the updated Model Year (MY) 2014 Yamaha R125. Thanks to our Reader Harkamal Singh, seen here are some 2014 Yamaha R125 images brought to you from the official unveiling from the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show. The 2014 Yamaha R125 is powered by a liquid-cooled 125cc 4-stroke engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The short stroke high revving engine cranks out max power of 15 ps @ 9000 rpm with torque figures rated at 12.4 nm @ 8000 rpm.
But the noticeable visual differentiation on the 2014 R125 are a set of new upside down front forks claimed to deliver enhanced stability and a new front cowl featuring a central air intake.
The bodywork is heavily inspired by the R6 and Yamaha claims that the new generation R6-inspired cowls gives the 2014 Yamaha R125 a genuine big-bike look and feel with the slippery aerodynamic design is ready to slice through the air for maximum riding excitement.
The 2014 Yamaha R125 also sports a new radial front caliper and 297mm floating front disc for enhanced stopping performance. A pair of new thin “Y” spoke wheels for low unsprung weight and handling, a new fully digital dashboard and a carbon finished front fender adds a racy touch to the 125cc track tool. The backlit digital dashboard displays the necessary numbers that includes the speedometer with a bar type tachometer, fuel level, fuel consumption, distance and range trip meters.
Held together by a steel perimeter frame and an aluminium swingarm, the new R125 gets a redesigned rear linked monoshock that further aids handling to go alongwith added rider comfort. Rubber specs on the new R125 read a 100/80-17 front tyre and 130/70-17 rear tyre.
We’d say the 2014 Yamaha R125 is quite a looker and we hope that the forthcoming Yamaha R25 comes with similar styling elements.
