With the introduction of the new Sport Pack, the YZF-R125 received several aesthetic updates.

Yamaha has made its YZF R125 sportier by introducing a new “Sport Pack” for its entry-level sportbike. Although the bike is not retailed in the Indian market as it is deemed “too expensive” by entry bike standards, it is sold in the majority of European countries and is also quite a popular offering compared to the KTM RC 125.

With the introduction of the new Sport Pack, the bike received several cosmetic updates. The pack includes a range of accessories such as new stickers on the wheels, tank protection with an artificial carbon fiber finish, new indicators and license plate holder, as well as several elements blacked out for a look more sporty. Additionally, the package also includes a new, sportier windshield that will likely be more aerodynamic for a faster top speed.

At the heart of the R125 is a liquid-cooled 125cc single-cylinder engine. This unit delivers 14.5 hp of power and 11.5 Nm of peak torque. The transmission option is a six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch.

The equipment of the bike remains unchanged. It continues to roll on 17-inch alloy wheels at each end. Up front, it’s sprung on 41mm inverted forks, while a monoshock can be seen doing the chores out back. For braking, the bike uses a 292mm front disc and a 220mm rear disc.

The all-new Sport Pack will go on sale in European markets this summer. However, this pack, or the bike, is unlikely to launch in India anytime soon. In India, the company retails the YZF-R15 which is a bread and butter offering for the company in the country. Updates to the lines of this Sport Pack could also be introduced for Yamaha R15 this festive season.
