The Yamaha YBR 125 dates back to 2000. It was from this year that the production of this model in China and sales in emerging markets began. It should be noted right away that the YBR125 had many modifications and technical differences, depending on the target sales market. In our review, we will only consider the European versions of the motorcycle, produced from 2004 (2005 model year) to 2014.
Since 2004, the Yamaha YBR125 model has been produced for the European market, offering two modifications - a classic (with a round headlight) and a version with a front half fairing and a trapezoidal headlight (this modification was officially supplied to Russia).
In 2007, the model undergoes a minor restyling, receiving a different plastic under the tank and a number of other minor visual differences from the previous generation. The main change in European versions was the presence of an injector instead of a carburetor.
2014 was the last year of Yamaha YBR125 production for the European market, after which it disappeared from dealers and was no longer offered. Meanwhile, Yamaha YBR125 continued to be sold in other markets, in particular, the market of Southeast Asia, South America, etc.
In 2017, Yamaha officially unveiled the successor to the YBR125, which is the new model, the Yamaha YS125.
