The all-new Yamaha YZF-R125 arrived on the scene in January 2019 as the most advanced 125cc Supersport created by Yamaha. This YZF-R125 is instilled with R-World and racing DNA, building on years of experience by our racing teams in many categories. From May onwards this year the strands of this DNA run deeper and stretch further, combining pure racing spirit from Yamaha’s legendary MotoGP Team into the special YZF-R125 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition.
This exclusive edition of the YZF-R125 perfectly reflects its racing pedigree with the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP inspired livery that closely matches the YZR-M1s look of MotoGP superstars Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales. The edgy, aggressive styling is unmistakable, and the instantly recognizable green Monster Energy claw marks this out as a track predator. This edition gives riders the opportunity to take one step closer to the world of racing talent, proudly reflecting pure Yamaha racing DNA on their own machine.
Of course a genuine Supersport machine needs the power to back up the styling and the YZF-R125 doesn’t disappoint. The 2019 125cc, liquid-cooled, 4-valve beating heart at the centre, was completely redesigned for the 2019 model, for even more high-output torque and a broader, smoother power delivery at the flick of the wrist.
The technology behind the engine is pure science, a Variable Valve Actuation system (VVA) that optimises the intake valve timing in relation to engine rpm. Translated to performance, the VVA system means the YZF-R125 rider experiences great thrills powered by high torque and strong acceleration from low to mid rpm and solid performance at higher engine speeds.
The impressive performance and power delivery is topped off by a handling package to match. The Deltabox frame with optimised geometry delivers the YZF-R125’s legendary handling. The 2019 designed, lightweight aluminium swingarm completes the chassis setup optimising rigidity for a sporty, agile and comfortable ride.
Power and handling are nothing without control, so the YZF-R125 offers plenty of R-Series features, including an accurate A&S (Assist and Slipper) clutch, 41mm upside down front suspension, GP style handle crown and a beefy 140 rear tyre.
The exclusive 2019 YZF-R125 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP edition is the ultimate homage to the real MotoGP deal and available to order from May 2019 onwards at your local Yamaha Dealer. The YZF-R125 comes also in Yamaha Blue, Tech Black and Competition White. Please contact your official Yamaha Dealer for more detailed information and the local retail price.
