- KTM Duke 125
- Kawasaki Z125
- Honda CB125R
- Suzuki GSX-S125
- Aprilia Tuono 125
The premium 125cc segment has a lot of other contenders from all the major brands. As all of these bikes are A1 license compliant their power is restricted to 15 PS only. Every bike in this category packs a punch and is a worthy competitor for the MT-125.
When it comes to design the KTM Duke 125 and Yamaha MT-125 steal the spotlight from others with their sharp and aggressive design. On the other hand, Honda CB125R and Aprilia Tuono have a mature and sophisticated designs. All of these 6 bikes in this segment have different characteristic and offers loads of features.
Verdict On Yamaha MT-125
MT-125 has an aggressive and distinctive design that has been derived from its bigger sibling. The new headlamps design adds a different characteristic to the bike and gives it a mean face making it stand out from the crowd. It has a premium build quality and a good overall fit & finish.
Now, the Yamaha MT-125 comes with the VVA technology on board that is a cherry on top. The VVA feature provides a torque-rich low as well as a powerful top-end. The gearbox is smooth and now it also has a slipper clutch system that reduces wheel hop while aggressive downshifts. This streetfighter is powerful and it is total fun to ride machine.
The Yamaha MT-125 has a derived delta box chassis from YZF-R125with minor changes. The rigidity around the swingarm has been increased and the length of the swingarm is reduced. It has high-quality KYB up-side front forks and KYB mono shocks that provide a balanced ride quality. It is a lightweight machine and feels nimble to handle.
The brakes on the MT-125 are effective. It has a dual-channel ABS, but it doesn’t have the option to disengage the rear wheel ABS-like all the other bikes in this segment offer. The rear tyre size has been increased to 140 mm and it comes with Michelin Pilot street tyres.
Overall the Yamaha MT-125 has been improved from the last offered version. It now comes with some new features and a slightly reworked chassis. It has improved ride quality and characteristics. However, the price of MT-125 is an issue as the similarly potent bike in this segment are priced much competitively and offer almost the same performance and equipment. If we leave the price point, then the 2023 Yamaha MT-125 is surely an amazing bike that has a lot to offer.
The kerb weight of MT-125 is 142 kg.
The seat height of the 2023 MT-125 is 810 MM.
