Yamaha MT-125

The Yamaha MT-125 was first introduced in 2014 as a budget low-volume motorcycle for beginners.

It is noteworthy that the model was intended primarily for the European market, although such a low-volume technique is usually created for Asian markets. Despite the fact that Yamaha refers this model to the MT series, the MT-125 has nothing to do with this line of motorcycles, and the name is nothing more than a marketing ploy.

The Yamaha MT-125 was based on the sports model base Yamaha YZF-R125 of the second generation (2014-) - Deltabox steel frame, inverted fork, adjustable rear shock absorber, radial front brakes, those the same wheels, an 11.5 liter fuel tank and a 6-speed gearbox. An important factor is also the presence of ABS. Basically, the Yamaha MT-125 is a stripped-down version of Yamaha YZF-R125 without any technical differences.

The Yamaha MT-125 engine is a 124.7 cc, 1-cylinder, liquid-cooled injection unit, producing 15 hp. power and 12.4 Nm of torque. Maximum productivity - at 8000-9000 rpm. The motor is equipped with 4 valves and has one camshaft. This motor is also installed on models Yamaha WR125R and Yamaha WR125X.

Of the main competitors of the Yamaha MT-125 in the class, only the KTM Duke 125 should be distinguished, which is comparable in terms of technology and characteristics.
