Yamaha YBR 125 Review

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

YBR 125 is an entry level 125cc bike from Yamaha which bridges down the gap between YBR 110 and SS. This bike has been launched for those who want to shift from their 100cc bike to an affordable 125cc bike. Let's get into the detailing of this bike. At first glance, this bike feels much more premium than YBR 110. It borrows most of the styling bits from its elder siblings like SS and SZ. The face specially resembles a lot to SS which is certainly a good thing. It has a big tinted visor which looks really stylish with an edgy cowl featuring sharp lines on it. The headlight of this bike is very similar to the one used in SS. There is slight alteration made to its front fender. The bike shares its rear view mirrors, silver finished alloy wheels and side covers with its younger sibling. Yamaha has worked on its up-swept muffler which gets a new chrome shield. The side look of this bike is really attractive thanks to its new fuel tank. Its new fuel tank with side extensions makes it look aerodynamic and features cool graphics on it. Rear cowl and grab rail has also been modified. The rear fender has been revised and looks really catchy with its tail light. Similar to SS, this bike also has integrated side indicators in its tail light which differentiates it from other regular 125cc bikes.

The bike shares its instrument console with YBR 110. There is an analogue speedometer, fuel gauge and odometer in this instrument console but lacks a much needed tachometer. You can also notice other indicators in this meter panel. Similar to its smaller sibling, YBR 125 also has an engine kill switch. An air-cooled, 4-stroke 123cc engine of SS finds its way to this bike. Technically, these both bikes are same. YBR 125 gets a power output of 11 bhp at 7500 rpm from its SOHC engine. This engine is mated with a four speed manual gearbox which follows the gear shift pattern of one gear down and three gears up-shift. The maximum torque output of this engine is 10.4 Nm which arrives at 6500 rpm.

The bike feels quite satisfactory in this department when compared to its rivals. The crispy gear ratios help it get off to a good start and after that the bike manages really well. It does 0-60km/hr in almost 6 seconds. The bike is quite nimble and responsive in city traffic. The bike gets enough torque at low rpms which avoid frequent gear shifts and gives you stress free rides. It can cross the speed mark of 100km/hr faster than most of its rivals. This engine feels less strained in comparison to Bajaj Discover. Noise and harshness level of this engine are also kept well under control. It makes very less noise at high speeds and feels much refined than Discover125. This is one of the most refined 125cc engines available in India. Its gear transitions are also very smooth and enjoyable which gives it an upper hand over others. The bike feels really confident on highways and from power supply to gear shifts everything seems quite perfect. YBR 125 may give you a mileage of around 60km/ltr in city conditions while you can expect anything around 70km/ltr on highways.

The high seating and riding posture offered by Yamaha YBR 125 is very comfortable. Even with a pillion rider, there is no need to worry about the space. Grip of handlebar is very convenient but the best thing on this bike is now the grip your knees get around its fuel tank. There is nice space around the fuel tank which even gets better with perfectly placed foot-pegs. It’s a comfortable bike which feels much spacious than others like Discover 125. Yamaha YBR 125 features under seat storage space and small space just between the meter console and visor. It has a powerful headlight for clear vision at night and comes with other standard safety features like saree guard and pass button.

YBR 125 loses out to Discover 125 in this department. Its poor suspension system is a let-down for this bike which also further affects its ride quality. The rear hydraulic suspension system with swing arm of this bike never feels as comfortable as the gas filled shockers of Discover. At front it has standard telescopic forks. Yamaha does not offer front disc brake on this bike and it comes equipped with drum brakes of 130mm on its both wheels.

Ride and HandlingYBR 125 has class leading wheelbase (1300mm) and ground clearance (180mm) which makes it better than most its competitors in this segment. Its rear tyre holds the road really well around corners and you will impressed by its stability. The bike doesn't feel much scary while frequent lane changing at high speeds. However, big potholes are a matter of concern for this bike. You can also take this bike off road as it has a very light handling and extremely high ground clearance which enables it to cross most of the obstructions easily. You will never find it hard to steer this bike on road as well as off road.

What is the mileage of Yamaha YBR 125?
29 December 2022 05:53

Yamaha YBR125 comes with a mileage of approximately 60 kmpl. The bike gets a 123 cc, air cooled motor producing 10.7 BHP and 10.4 NM of torque. The gearbox has been kept 4-speed and the bike gets a top speed of 100 kmph. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued from the Yamaha India lineup due to poor sales and the launch of Saluto, the new 125 cc commuter bike from Yamaha. The YBR 125 was offered in a drum brake variant whereas the new Saluto gets a disc brake variant also. Both the bikes take 6 seconds to reach 60 kmph from standstill. The YBR came with a price tag of INR 50,846.

I purchased it around 11 years back. Though they claim 60-65 km mileage, I never got more than 50. Presently it is giving less than 30. It has run around 33000 km. But showroom people say, compression has become weak, and bore pistons are to be changed. Can it happen in 33000 km run? In the service center, there is so much rush that it is not possible to get the bike serviced within 7 days. Because of which, I have to depend on out side mechanics, who do not have sufficient knowledge.

Best Features: Maintenance cost is less

Pros: It is maintenance free bike. In last 11 years, I have hardly spent anything towards its maintenance.

Cons: Mileage is very poor. They claim 60, but I never got more than 45-50. Presently it is giving less than 30. Running is 33000 kms.

I bought this bike during October first week and used more than 1000kM. My general feed back about the bike is GOOD.

There are few corrections to the above review.

1. It has got only 4 gears but the The First and Top gear ratios are as same as Gladiator. - I think which means that it can have the same speed at the top gear and can deiver the same mileage like the 5 gear machine. Its giving me 65 kM in Highways and 55 kMin city conditions.

2. The down rod is ingular and not double as stated.

Other than that the best thing about this bike is its Pulling power it's awesome - when i ride it in 50kmph i feel that as such the machine is not moving that fast. Even with pillion its comfortable to drive in city.

The pluses are : its mileage - its very understated even by the dealer. they say only 60km where as i could get consistantly 65kmper litre.
The power is higher than any other competitor.
This same engine is tested and accepted well by many countries like China, Mexico, Brazil, France, which means that the body design is new but not the engine  - which i felt happy

Cons: Could have a maintenance free battery
Could have a Tachometer and a Tripmeter.

Other than that this is real value for money

People of height less than 5ft6inch may find it difficult to handle this bike.

Over all feed back 8/10 - Good

Thanks and regards,
