The Yamaha YBR 125 is a new entrant in Pakistani Motorbike market. Its an entry level street bike, reminiscent of the once Kawasaki GTO 125 that reigned supreme in the minds of us Pakistanis, some three decades ago. There used to be once only Honda CG 125 that could be declared as the champion of the roads with its high phantom like sound, but then when you don’t change shape for more than three decades, people are wont to loose interest. And off course Yamaha 100, but with time people need change, in looks, performance, convenience and economy. The YBR 125 fills up this empty void in a much better way. There’s the Suzuki GD 150 that could be declared as a good competitor to the YBR 125 but it lacks in looks and off course disc brakes and not to mention the Aluminum Alloy wheels against the age old spokes wheels.
The Yamaha YBR 125 come sin two models; the YBR 125 street version and the YBR 125G trail or off road version. With slight differences in specs, the bikes are an instant hit in the market as they offer style, comfort, safety, convenience and economy at an affordable cost. The bike is available in four colors; Blue, Black, Red and Grey. The sporty version comes in Black and Red only.
Here are the specs:
