Powerful 125cc EU5-compliant engine with VVA
The MT-125’s sophisticated 125cc 4-valve liquid-cooled EU5 engine is equipped with Yamaha’s exclusive Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) system that features two intake cam lobes. This exclusive R125-derived technology enables the high-tech engine to deliver outstanding top-end performance together with plenty of torque at lower engine speeds, making the MT-125 one of the strongest performers in the category.
Modern and aggressive body design
Athletic bodywork gives a dynamic look that’s been strongly influenced by the larger capacity MT models. The signature mass-forward styling, compact fuel tank and short tail accentuate the bike’s aggressive stance – and with its dynamic riding position you’d better prepare yourself for the most thrilling ride in the class!
Bold twin-eye face
No other lightweight comes with the street presence and intimidating attitude of the MT-125. Its aggressive face features menacing twin-eye position lights that project a predatory stare. The ultra-compact single LED headlight projects a brilliant beam that enables you to see and be seen.
Assist and slipper clutch
The MT-125’s engine is equipped with an assist and slipper (A&S) clutch with a super-light feeling at the lever that gives easy gear changing. As well as requiring less physical input from the rider, the A&S clutch makes downshifts even smoother and helps to prevent rear wheel lock ups – giving you greater control of your MT
