2009 Yamaha YZF-R125 | Rossi Replica

4-Stroke 125cc

The racetrack seems to be a major influence on the design of Yamaha’s R-series, and the 2009 Yamaha YZF-R125 is no different. The new YZF-R125 Team Yamaha Race Replica features striking blue and white paint and graphics to match Valentino Rossi’s MotoGP bike and the same aggressive R-series styling as the R1 and R6.

Born from the supersport DNA of the R-series, the YZF-R125 has R-series style and attitude. Its free-revving, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine is fuel injected for near-instant throttle response, while a 6-speed gearbox lets you keep it in the power band. A lightweight Deltabox frame linked to a cast aluminium swinging-arm delivers class-leading handling. And, because it’s full-sized, the R125 provides a comfortable riding position – even for taller riders.
