Yamaha has refreshed the lightweight Supersport R125 for 2023.
The 4th generation Yamaha R125 features an instantly identifiable new look that is directly inspired by the R7, linked TFT instrumentation, and a range of chassis refinements and new electronics, giving every rider a real taste of where R/World can take them.
The new R125’s LED position lights and bi-functioning LED headlight take design cues from the R7. The 125 is transformed into a fierce Supersport by the addition of an aerodynamic front fairing inspired by the R1 and a newly designed vented tank.
The fully faired entry level Supersport from Yamaha is powered by a 124.7cc single cylinder 4-stroke liquid cooled engine churning out 15 hp and 11.5 Nm of peak torque.

R125 has a 5″ color TFT display adapted from the one on the range-topping R1, with a choice of ‘Street’ and ‘Track’ themes to match different riding scenarios, as well as Motogp-inspired clip-on handlebars with an R1-style right switch cluster.
R125 users can stay connected and read notifications of incoming calls and text messages on the new 5-inch TFT screen using the free MyRide app, as well as check smartphone battery status and important aspects of the bike via the app. The R125 has a new traction control system. The traction control, in conjunction with the A&S clutch and the optional rapid shift system, provides the R125 rider with a high level of control, particularly during full-throttle acceleration.
All new 2023 Yamaha R125 is available in a choice of Icon Blue and Tech Black color schemes.
