New High Performance Braking System The newly designed front and rear brake setup offer exceptional braking power and feel, while reducing unsprung weight.
GNCC®-Tuned YZ125 Power Based on the legendary 125cc liquid-cooled, reed-valve-inducted YZ two-stroke engine, the YZ125X utilizes a revised compression ratio, Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS™) timing and a model-specific CDI unit—all focused on creating broad power delivery that suits off-road terrain and a wide range of rider skill levels.
Revised Power Valve The YZ125X features the patented Yamaha Power Valve System—with broader opening timing compared to the motocross version for smoother power—to create a smooth balance of power across the rev range.
Narrow Exhaust Pipe The compact exhaust expansion chamber provides both horizontal and vertical clearance on tight, technical trails while still providing excellent exhaust efficiency.
Racing Intake System Specially designed carbon fiber reed-valve petals improve throttle response and engine performance across the entire rpm range.
Six-Speed Transmission Smooth-shifting six-speed transmission ensures proper gearing, from tight woods to wide-open fire roads, optimizing power delivery from the two-stroke powerplant.
YZ125 Cooling System Large-capacity radiator features a large cooling core with protective louvers for maximum cooling efficiency and durability in racing conditions.
Digital Ignition Specifically tuned for the needs of the YZ125X, the digital CDI ignition system delivers precise spark for faster, stronger response anywhere in the powerband.
Industry-Leading KYB® Fork The industry-leading, fully adjustable KYB® spring-type fork with speed-sensitive damping uses piston speed to control the damping force for super-precise handling and a smooth ride. With minimal wasted stroke or abrupt shocks for the rider, this bike is tuned for the demands of cross country racing.
Smooth KYB® Shock Fully adjustable KYB® rear shock features 12.4 inches of travel, separate adjusters for high- and low-speed compression damping and a full lock oil rebound system for increased comfort, control and fantastic rear wheel traction in challenging conditions.
