2012 Yamaha YZF-R125 WGP 50th Anniversary

Riders in UK are supposedly happy right now to know that there is YZF-R125 in special livery which is the WGP 50th Anniversary edition. The combination of the white, red and a little black are nicely done to make this bike looks better in time. The stance of this bike are full of machoism and the special edition livery really spice it up to the next level of excitement (at least in terms of looks). I would buy this if only it makes to our shore here in Malaysia.

A Class Of Its Own

At Yamaha we wanted to make a new kind of high-specification 125 right from the start. And while the opposition may have tried to keep pace with this radical sports bike, serious riders know that there is still no substitute for the YZF-R125. Take a closer look and you’ll see the quality in its aerodynamic race-developed bodywork, full-sized Deltabox frame, aluminium swinging arm, lightweight wheels, large diameter discs, liquid-cooled engine, MotoGP-style muffler…and much, much more. When you demand the best, the Yamaha YZF-R125 is the only choice. And in the limited edition WGP 50th Anniversary colours, this bike is in a class of its own.

Race-developed design

The YZF-R125 has been developed from Yamaha’s race-winning R-series bikes, and features class-leading engine and chassis technology. With its full-sized Deltabox frame, liquid-cooled, 4-valve engine featuring a MotoGP-type mid-ship muffler, and aerodynamic bodywork finished in the new WGP 50th Anniversary colours, the YZF-R125 is the way to go!

Aluminium swinging arm

As well as being equipped with a full-sized Deltabox frame, the YZF-R125 also benefits from a strong cast aluminium swinging arm which operates a link-type suspension system. This advanced lightweight rear suspension system makes for a comfortable ride and delivers responsive handling performance.

Aggressive R-series supersport bodywork

With its twin fox-eye headlights and sporty aerodynamic lines, the aggressively-styled YZF-R125 has the street presence of a much larger-capacity motorcycle. And just like our YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 supersport bikes, the class-leading YZF-R125 attracts attention wherever you go.

Large-diameter disc brakes

The YZF-R125 has been built to a high specification and the braking systems are amongst the best in the class. The large-diameter 292mm front disc is equipped with a compact twin-pot caliper for smooth, controlled braking – and the rear system features a 230mm rear disc with a single-pot caliper to give assured stopping power.

Full-sized Deltabox chassis

Unlike some other bikes in the 125 class, the YZF-R125 is equipped with a full-sized Deltabox chassis which gives a more comfortable riding position and delivers a real big-bike feel. Combined with the radical supersport bodywork, the great-handling race-bred chassis puts this bike in a class of its own.

Liquid-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder 125cc engine

The liquid-cooled 4-stroke 125cc engine delivers a wide range of strong performance. Its short-stroke layout makes for a free-revving character, while the fuel injection system and 4-valve cylinder head give lively acceleration. And with a 6-speed gearbox, the YZF-R125 is a great performer around town and on the open road.

Not just the YZF-R125 gets the WGP 50th Anniversary but the FZ8, YZF-R1, YZF-R6 and Aerox 50cc also gets it.
