“Queasy Rider”

published 25/01/2003

easy to ride, cheap to run, comfy about town

total lack of power, dodgy cruiser styling

My experience with the Yamaha SR125 took place a few years ago when I was sitting my bike test. Under current regulations, after completing a CBT course, at 17 years old you can take a test on a 125cc bike restricted to 12bhp after which you can ride any bike as long as it is restricted to 33 bhp...

The Yamaha SR125 has received a lot of stick from some people, while a lot of praise from others, during this review i will attempt to give as unbiassed an opinion as i can on this bike, having owned mine for around a year and covering over 10,000 miles i feel that i am fairly qualified to give a...

“Yamaha SR125”

published 12/01/2001

Comforable, light on fuel, easy to repair

Sluggish on cornering

The Yamaha SR125 is a small, custom-style bike. Being 5'3", it was a good choice for my first bike. It's reliable and easy to ride. Over the 5 years that I owned one, all I needed to do was give it an annual service, apart from topping up the oil and replacing the headlight bulb. The bulb needed...

“Great First bike”

published 17/06/2008

MPG, Easy Handling

Slow Speed, Styling

Bought a cheap 1994 reg SR for £475, 26K on the clock. Perfect for learning & gaining confidence for the test. Certainly not the fastest bike you'll ever ride - struggles to mid 50's (but quite pokey at 0 - 25 mph) Nice & comfortable, good for short people as the seat is pretty low. All the...

“The easiest way into biking!”

published 07/06/2004

Simple, easy, reliable and fun

lacks a bit of power

For most new bikers on the roads, the SR125 was possibly the first bike they rode, as it's used a lot in CBT training. I am a motorbike instructor with a school that uses the SR125, and I have nothing but praise for them! A very simple, cruiser/mini harley styled machine with a single cylinder, 4...

“Perfect learner bike!”

Perfect learner bike!

Not very much power

I bought one of these bike at the age of 17, ready to lean on and go for my bike test. This bike without and doubt is one of the easiest 125cc motorbikes to ride with a low seat height and very comfortable rider position. The bike is not the most powerfull 125cc, but as a first bike power is your...

“EVERLASTING BIKE”

published 31/03/2007

Durability, Comfort, Engine..soo much

Can't Think of Any

I bought this bike second hand just about 3 months ago. It is a 1991 model and Still running beautifuly. The speed goes upto 60-65 and this is on a flat road, but the pick up on it is very good and has a decent amount of power for a 125cc engine. I have drum brakes on mine, they aren't as sharp...

Bought this bike recently, have only owned it for about a month and ridden about 1000miles in that time. My intention was commuting but have loved riding so much i am looking to sit a full bike test. Parts are cheapish and readily available. I have been buying chrome which has enhanced the appearance massively. Its a stunning bike for a 125. Tad on the small size if your 6ft tall. I bought mine in immaculate condition for 900quid and then crashed it but it took the crash well. Little damage really... the bike just bounced... no scratching to paintwork and only handlebars, clutch lever and indicators broke. This bike struggles over 65mph but at a push downhill will do 78mph. Brill learner bike and worth buying!
