I recently started a new job that was twenty mile ride into a dense city during rush hour times, so a car was not a sensible option. I bought my YBR from new for two and a half grand, you are given a warranty in case it breaks down due to manufacturers faults for up to three years however after...

“A fantastic bike!”

ProComfort, easy handling, charisma.

Consthin wheels, low power on hills

I currently ride a Yamaha YBR125 and I can assure you that they are brilliant. Particularly if you are new on the road. As the CBT licence allows the rider to ride anything up to a 125 motorbike this fits nicely into the "1st Motorbike" category. Like all 125's she has the tendency to struggle up...

I recently purchased this bike for £2,000 on the road. Included in the cost was free insurance supplied by Yamaha(UK) a years road fund , a tank of fuel and delivery by the dealer to my house. The alternative I did consider, the Honda cbf125, would have cost about £2,300 all in. Commuting really...

Let me start by saying that I've loved every minute on my YBR. I bought this bike when I could no longer afford to run my car and needed something to run around on to town and to work. Out of the 3 main dealers (honda, suzuki and yamaha), I found that the YBR offered the best package. Since all...

I've had this bike for five months, and have to tell people about it. This is a great 125. I set out to buy a new Honda CG125, but was won by the better styling, better equipment, and lower OTR price of Yamaha's YBR 125. I haven't regretted it. This is a great little 125. And it looks good! I...

ConsNone.

I will start with the looks. Personally I think that the Yamaha YBR 125cc is a very good looking and well designed bike, it is also quite a big bike, so it doesn't really look like a little 125, which is a good thing. Although this does not effect the performance. I have so far been 70mph on this...

Since my previous review I clocked about 8000Km with my little grey mouse, driving through winter -10 C. The bike holds just on the slow lane on the (Dutch) highways. Topspeed 100 Km/hr or as low as 85 with strong headwinds. As a real truck chaser it is more comfortable. With passenger not...

This is my first bike after passing my CBT. I basically was looking for a runaround so I don't use the car so much for short trips. I looked at the Honda CG125, Suzuki EN125 and a Kymco Zing 125. The Kymco was the better looking, cruiser stlye, loads of chrome, but it was second hand and a bit...

I bought my YBR 125 from new in October 2008, downgrading from a fuel guzzling car for a more economical option. Woah! What an economical option! the tank is a 2 gallon which costs about £8-9 to fill from empty at present. The tank will last between 190-200 miles!! (80-100mpg!). You would expect...

I have had this bike for three months now and all I have to say that its a great bike and would have been better with a nice big rear tyre and rear disc brakes like other small bikes, say like the Daelim 125 roadwin. Great handling and comfort.
