Tyres for Yamaha YZF-R125 Motorcycle
The Yamaha YZF R125 motorcycle has been developed with the same technology that makes every R-series model the envy of riders on the track and the road. With its radical innovative design, the Yamaha YZF R125 is the ultimate class-leading 125cc supersport bike. The Yamaha YZF R125 may be a certified learner's bike, but it oozes street cred from its upside down front forks to its short-stroke liquid-cooled engine. With its low-slung handlebars, the riding position is pure performance sportsbike, and its performance belies its 125cc engine - this is all sportsbike, and its R-series lineage is plain to see.
The Yamaha YZF R125 has been developed with a similar riding philosophy as applies to the R6, and the two bikes share a similar design philosophy that makes riding fun. With exceptional handling on the street and the open road, the Yamaha YZF R125 combines sporty geometry with low weight.
Because of the influence from the larger models in the R-series, the Yamaha YZF R125 has the look and feel of a much bigger machine. That's due in part to the use of the R6 muffler layout, which allows for a more centralised mass and superb road handling. The completely remodelled four-stroke engine complies with current and future emissions regulations while retaining its lively character and torque.
Sports Tyres for Sporty Performance
The Yamaha YZF R125 comes factory-fitted with Michelin Pilot Street sports tyres (100/80-17 front and 130/70-17 rear), with their design maximised for a small-engined street bike. These tyres have the ideal balance between grip and wear, enabling you to slice through wet surfaces. Long-lasting and durable, these sports performance tyres are the whole package - safe, sporty and high-performance for a thrilling ride with no compromise.
