The dark side of Japan is being up to date.The newest member of this dark family is finally unveiled. Yamaha has added a new member in their MT family, The MT-125.
MT-125 has similar footprints comparing the MT-15.The facts that make this bike special is that it comes with Variable Valve Actuation (VVA).This bike has slipper clutch too.It is decorated with a new fully digital LCD display.Although this bike has lower cc than its big brothers, its power is still the same.This dark beauty has 15 BHP and can produce 11.5 Nm of torque.This torque is slightly reduced.It has an aggressive 6 speed gear box.
The look of this beauty is stunning.It got the LED headlight same transformers shape,but now its flanked with two LED DRL’s.The tail lamp is also LED unit, but the indicators are conventional bulbs.The bike comes with a 41mm upside down fork and cast aluminium swingarm.The rear tyre is huge,140/70 R-17.The front has 292mm disc and rear has 230mm disk brake.The MT-125 got no extra weight since it is still 140 kg.The fuel capacity is slightly reduced,just 10 liters.
One thing is though that this bike will not come to India due to some licensing issues and Euro 5 emission norms.Yamaha has not updated the price of this bike. It is expected to go on sale in December.
We really hope that ACI motors will bring this bike in our Bangladesh at a reasonable price.
