    Lightbulb Yamaha YBR-125 Review.

    Let's share what do we know about the newly launched Yamaha YBR-125 so far.

    Post pictures, comments, experiences.

    PS: Let's hold this discussion like responsible and sensible grown-ups. Happy riding

    Things which we feel are missing:

    1. Engine kill switch.
    2. Pass switch.
    3. The YBR-125 basic model for those people who are looking for a new family bike or just those who like things retro.

    you are right and i now this wait is going to be very hard for me. i think i can withstand it for ybr 125G till december. i postponed it only because ybr 125G not because many members saying that most of the parts are made in china. what i believe is wherever they are made, these bikes are going to be far more better than CG and Deluxe.

    first of all congrats to all of us because new era of bikes is started in pakistan, atleast new designs and features are coming that will replace that toooo old models like 70's which are there in market since our childhoods.
    Yamaha did a very great job by launching YBR 125. Piaggio storm & suzuki CD110 are also the game turn overs. but yamaha looks are too stunning uptill now as compared to all bikes available in market.

    I have't seen the bike personally but its looks great and eye catcher to me.. its yamaha so i'm sure it would be better than other bikes atleast from china bikes........ Its engine and performane would be better as well..

    over all looks & features are superb.. but in my views 2-3 things are missing which would be there in this bike to be a top of the list in all.. although other pakistani bikes has these features, yamaha should also have them or even think about them to make YBR 125 as best bike of pakistan.

    these things are:

    1. handle of Yamaha YBR 125 is same as all others bike, thats not goes with the design, it should be atleast like Piaggio storm 125 which has raised sports handle bars, if yamaha adopt it from piaggio that will add extra great looks to bike..

    2. Chain cover is always a problem to a bike and for biker as well. although Yahama introduced plastic cover that would be good in case of rusting, in my view there would no chain cover as international model of yahama YBR 125 has. even Piaggio storm dont have chain cover.


    3. Foot rest of this bike is same as all the other local bikes has. foot rest should be sporty & foldable as well with rubber top to reduce vibrations. steel diamond shaped chassis should be there as international model has. same adopted by Piaggio storm. so pakistani Yamaha YBR 125 should have this it would add extra sporty looks to bike and a perfect design.

    4. shocks are really nice specially the front one. the stock version has reflector in it that add nice looks to it, but i think it should be in black color to add extra looks. international model has black but without reflector, if black with reflector would be there then it will be a greater part

    5. Yamaha comes with self starter thats a big need of a bike but i think it should be there with engine kill button as well for a complete power turn on/off setup, suzuki GD110s has it.. so yamaha should think about it to..

    6. I'm not sure about the fuel tank's lid of yamaha, it should be sporty as bike design is. sporty fuel tank lid is adopted well by piaggio storm.

    7. I like the bike all over, great design, the only think that i dont like is its silencer/exhaust. its all silverish.. its should be like international model has, thats a super eye catcher exhaust. yamaha pakistan should change it as early as possible. even piaggio storm & suzuki GD110 has acceptable designs of silencer.

    Yahama Pakistan Should think all the above points if these all added to this bike then it would be the unbeatable bike for many years.
    Yamaha still dont have the above points but i'm still intrested to have this bike.. Inshalah will get it soon..
    Adding all those things specially those Raised Clip On Handle Bars, foot pegs, gear lever would have increased 10k in the price of the bike. And though piaggio handle looks better and make the ride a lot more fun but after a few hours of drive they are not as comfortable as the conventional handle bars specially for those who are not used to of these raised handle bars.
    and there are two more things that should be present specially DIPPER BUTTON
    Yamaha YBR125 Review -1569906
    and there is no parking light switch in ignition switch which is a good thing to have if u r parking ur bike during night, on the side of the road.
    Now People don't start bashing us, its just a comparison

    Today saw a YBR in Quetta that was in blue color. Overall quality is really good, color and finishing is just astonishing. Visor and headlight should be more sharp and curvy and yes Yamaha has to concentrate on quality of it's front.
    Bike sound is just like GS150, silent on idle and little louder at high RPM but no way near to super bike.
    Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.

    as per below thread ..
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/bik...24#post4779418

    it seems it will do average of 40kmpltr when riding it in 'ecocnomy' zone .. as running is done in that zone.
    but we need to check its speedomenter against gps for %age of accuracy.

    Alhamdulillah got my YBR today from Yamaha showroom near Gulrez colony Rawalpindi. I also have a Deluxe right now so can give my 2 cents on YBR first hand. Driven it only a few Kms so far but OMG it is soooo smooth and comfortable. Loved the drive of it. And I park my bike indoors daily so had to push them up 2 stairs, YBR with full fuel felt lighter than the Deluxe which only has about 2 liters of fuel in it. so YBR gonna be quite quick. Will give it the beans after 1000Kms of running insha Allah. And the dealers who are sayiing prices will rise are just looking to spook people into buying the bike asap. Prices can't go up.

    Congratulations on the bike! Ma Sha Allah it's a beauty.

    I suggest you make a seperate thread for the bike and update it with your experience, and with pictures of course!

    The back shocks are adjustable and hence the back seat can be lowered

    That adjustment is meant for hardness/softness, height can't be adjusted with them.
