18 Nov 2020: Yamaha unveils 2021 R125 motorbike for the international markets

Japanese automaker Yamaha has unveiled the next-generation R125 motorcycle for the global markets. It comes in two colors: Racing Blue with gray accents, and Black with white lines.

As for the highlights, it has a fully-faired design, a digital instrument console, and lever guards. The bike draws power from a Euro 5-compliant 124.7cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine.

Here are more details.

Design: 2021 Yamaha R125: At a glance

The 2021 Yamaha R125 sits on a Steel Deltabox frame and offers an eye-catching design. It features a sloping fuel tank, a stepped-up seat, a raised windscreen, an upswept exhaust pipe, and golden-colored front forks.

The bike packs a digital instrument console and an all-LED setup for lighting. It rides on designer blacked-out alloy wheels.

Fact: Power and performance

The 2021 Yamaha R125 draws power from a Euro 5-compliant 124.7cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that generates 14.79hp of maximum power at 9,000rpm and 12.4Nm of peak torque at 8,000rpm. The mill comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Safety: What about safety and suspension setup?

To ensure the safety of the rider, the 2021 Yamaha R125 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads.

Meanwhile, the suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by 41mm inverted telescopic forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.

Fact: The bike is unlikely to be launched in India

The 2021 Yamaha R125 will be up for grabs globally by the end of this year. However, it is unlikely to make its way to India given the R15 V3 is already available in the country as the company's entry-level fully-faired model.
