The youngest Faster Son - Born for free spirits
Designed for those riders who appreciate the seamless combination of true heritage design with
timeless neo-retro looks and up-to-the-minute technology, Yamaha’s Sport Heritage models are
truly in a class of their own. With a unique character and everlasting appeal, every XSR model is
designed to deliver not just an outstanding riding experience, but to enable its owner to
underline their individuality and express their personality.
Yamaha’s Faster Sons philosophy is inspired by the past while looking firmly to the future, and it
is an approach that strikes a chord with those free spirited riders who like to do things their own
way. The whole Yard Built scene has been inspired and encouraged by the Faster Sons
movement, and over the past 6 years the most respected custom builders from Europe and
beyond have created many radical and thought provoking machines using a Yamaha Sport
Heritage model as their starting point.

With the current Sport Heritage range headed by the flagship 3-cylinder XSR900, closely
supported by the 2-cylinder XSR700, the time is right to introduce a new model that will open up
the Faster Sons way of life to a whole new audience. Designed and built to the same high quality
standards as its older siblings, the XSR125 offers younger riders the opportunity to experience
the unique riding experience and pride of ownership that comes with every XSR – and with its
premium build quality and proven Yamaha reliability, customers can be sure that this is a
machine that will not let them down, and will retain a good used value.
All-new XSR125: Commuting in style
Commuting is about to become a lot more fun with the XSR125. Built to a high standard
specification that includes Yamaha’s top-of-the-line engine as well as an agile handling frame –
and featuring state-of-the-art technology seamlessly intertwined with timeless heritage style –
this new lightweight is the youngest member of the Faster Sons family. And like many younger
siblings, this bike is ready to make its mark and is ready to impress.
With its strong retro-inspired colour schemes, exquisite detailing and first class Yamaha build
quality, this is a bike that demands to be noticed wherever it is ridden. Unlike some other models
in the class that prefer to keep a low profle, the XSR125 is the kind of bike that makes a strong
statement and has the performance, technology and style to back it up.
Light, agile and fun
This new motorcycle has been designed to be light, agile and enjoyable for everyday riding –
making it the ideal choice for a wide range of B1 license car drivers* looking for an alternative to
four wheels, as well as for existing riders with an A-license who appreciate the XSR125’s
outstanding value and impressive specification.
Those riders who may be completely new to motorcycling will be reassured by the comfortable
upright riding position as well as the smooth suspension and easy, lightweight handling – and
both new and existing riders are going to appreciate the fun-loving nature of Yamaha’s newest
Sport Heritage bike.

Pure and timeless XSR styling
Just like every model in the Yamaha Sport Heritage line up, the XSR125 features a bold line up
of colours that are influenced by some of Yamaha’s legendary models from a bygone era.
Featuring a strong horizontal motif, the Redline, Tech Black and Impact Yellow colour schemes
combined with features like the rounded tank, long flat seat and circular headlight give this new
125 a bold and unique look that underlines its Faster Sons DNA – and just like the XSR900 and
XSR700, the new XSR125 pays homage to the past, while looking ahead to the future by
featuring the very latest technology including full LED lighting as well as an LCD meter.
Best-in-class 125cc 11kW engine
The XSR125 is driven by a responsive 125cc 4-valve liquid-cooled single-cylinder EU5 engine that
is the same design as the unit used on the extremely successful MT-125 Hyper Naked and R125
Supersport models. This sophisticated and highly reliable powerplant produces a full 11kW, the
maximum permissible in the A1 licence category, making it one of the strongest performers in
the class.
One of the significant technological features on the XSR125 is Yamaha’s Variable Valve
Actuation (VVA) system that enables the engine to produce plenty of torque at lower engine
speeds together with excellent performance at higher speeds. The result is a bike that is easy
and enjoyable to use around town, and as well as being able to deliver an exciting ride on the
highway – and the whole riding experience is made even more enjoyable and rewarding by the
beautifully-tuned exhaust note that brings out the strong character of the single-cylinder
Being fully EU5 compliant, the XSR125’s low emissions enable it to be ridden in those city
centres where increasingly strict air quality regulations may apply, making it an ideal commuter.
37mm USD front forks
In order to achieve first class roadholding together with responsive handling and an easy and
enjoyable riding character, the XSR125 is equipped with 37mm USD front forks. Featuring a
black finish that complements the bike’s timeless Sport Heritage character, these smooth-action
forks play an important role in making this afordable commuter such a comfortable and nimble
performer in different riding situations. This USD front end also underlines the XSR125’s
premium overall specification at the same time as being one of the most afordable models in
the quality 125cc class.

Stylish block pattern tyres
Yamaha’s Sport Heritage bikes are inspired by the past and built for the future, and the XSR125’s
chunky block-pattern tyres emphasise the bike’s timeless good looks while providing high levels
of traction. The combination of a wide 140/70-17 rear tyre and 110/70-17 front tyre together
with lightweight 10-spoke alloy wheels ensures low unsprung weight for responsive suspension
action, giving a confident riding character with easy and predictable handling, making this an
ideal choice for first-time motorcyclists.
High-tech LED headlight and LED taillight
Sophisticated LED lighting. The full LED headlight features a classic shaped circular shell that
epitomizes the bike’s unique blend of classic styling with up-to-the-minute technology, while the
compact LED taillight underlines the bike’s agile and lightweight appearance.
Strong and light Deltabox frame
The chassis features Yamaha’s advanced Deltabox frame design with twin spars that run in a
straight line from the steering head to the swingarm pivot to create an extremely strong yet
lightweight chassis. Featuring a compact 1330mm wheelbase and accessible 810mm seat height,
the XSR125 chassis is designed to accommodate riders of varying sizes, while the upright riding
position and relaxed ergonomics make this lightweight Sport Heritage bike ideally suited for
riders with an A1 licence who are looking for a more enjoyable, e????ective and economical way to
get into and around the city.
Premium details
Few other models in the category are able to offer this level of affordability combined with such
an impressive spec, and premium details can be seen throughout the bike. In addition to
the previously described USD forks, LED headlight and LED taillight and full power 125cc 11kW
VVA engine, this lightweight Sport Heritage bike is equipped with a wide range of attractive
features such as a tuck and roll seat, painted mudguards and aluminium brackets that highlight
the attention to detail that makes this bike stand out.
Circular LCD meter
Every detail on the XSR125 is designed to be true to the Faster Sons philosophy that sees
timeless design blended with modern technology. The circular LCD meter is a perfect example of
this approach, and it features a satin black body featuring a circular LCD meter with a bright
chrome surround. The negative LCD meter displays clear and easy to read information, while the
neo-retro look perfectly complements the round headlamp, painted mudguards and heritage
colours and graphics.

Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing.
