Fact: Power and performance
The 2021 Yamaha MT-125 runs on a Euro 5-compliant 124cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine paired to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper and assist clutch. The mill generates 14.69hp at 10,000rpm and 11.5Nm at 8,000rpm. Further, it delivers a mileage of 47.6km/liter.
Safety: What about safety and suspension setup?
Suspension duties on the 2021 Yamaha MT-125 are taken care of by 41mm inverted forks on the front side, and a mono-shock unit with an aluminium swingarm on the rear end.
Meanwhile, to ensure the safety of the rider, the bike is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS as standard.
Fact: Pricing and availability
In the UK, the 2021 Yamaha MT-125 carries a price-tag of £4,524 (approximately Rs. 4.5 lakh). However, the premium vehicle is unlikely to make its way to India, as its bigger brother MT-15 is already available here.
