Vehicle Overview
Yamaha MT-125 is the youngest member of MT series internationally. It is powered by the same engine as Yamaha R125. The 124.7cc engine is good for 14.8 BHP at 9,000 rpm and 12.4 Nm at 8,000 rpm. The motorcycle weighs 138 kg and claims a top speed of 121 kmph. It rivals KTM 125 Duke and Suzuki GSX-S125 in the naked street bike segment while also competes against KTM RC125, Aprilia RS4 125 and Honda CBR125R in various markets. Yamaha would not bring this to India as premium 125cc bikes are not feasible when tuned to such high levels.NAKawasaki Z125 is an engine restricted version of Z250, sharing the same design and equipment for better results. The model is powered by 15HP, 125cc engine, with liquid cooling and fuel injection as standard. The target audience will be developed markets with licensing restrictions for bikes carrying more displacement than 125cc. The same engine also does duty on Ninja 125, producing a similar output on the faired racer.
