    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

    I have silently viewed all posts and have a serious question. Any one having deep details please answer.

    This bike is totally sporty and for singulars. Is there any chance of family or cruise type bike? with wide seating and low hight so family can ride easily.
    There is a chance of YBR 125-Z variant launching by the end of this year.

    I'll definitely get this one, Insha Allah. In fact I was hoping Yamaha would launch basic and sports model together so that I could go for the basic one.

    And I must repeat "Yamaha would be at a great loss if they don't launch this one - they would be leaving out a big pie if they don't launch it". And this basic model will be the real cash-cow for Yamaha. I do not quite understand the infinite wisdom in which this model wasn't launched.

    Let's wait and watch now.

    If anyone here encounters a dealership which charges more than the standard price for Yamaha YBR 125 which is 1,29,400 then please inform Pakistan Bikers Club by following this procedure:

    My suggestion to all the members who are willing to book the bike is to wait till stock arrives in showrooms. In this manner you will have a chance to pick the bike of your choice out of all the bikes available at showroom. However, on booking you might just have to accept whatever the showroom gives you because they'll say we got this unit just for you, now you cannot back-out because (God forbid) something happened to it during handling till you receive it. It is obvious when advance has been paid a dealer might not care much for the bike as opposed to the case when he still has to sell the units.

    I hope I conveyed the message.

    If they will add a front disc brake in YBR 125Z then it would be a nightmare for RP & CG.

    Its called milking strategy. They are targeting die hard Yamaha fans who are willing to pay the buck for top of the chain product. Slowly but surely they are going to target the other segments of the market by bringing in cheap models.

    I think the YBR 125Z looks a dozen times better. The spirit of 'classic' is retained in that one, and it doesn't try too hard to look like a sporty commuter which it just isn't.

    But yes, without a Disc Brake upfront, it would be pointless to have that. I was hoping to see a YBR125 without that front stupid looking visor. This is more of my thing:

    They could have earned much more profits by following in Suzuki's steps: Suzuki did a "litmus test" by first introducing GD 110 and based on its success introduced GD 110S.

    What sells quickly and in large quantity: an expensive product or a cheap product?

    There are already quite a few members here (including myself) who, while appreciating the launch of sports model, are simultaneously disappointed at Yamaha for not launching the base model. Is it not a bad business strategy to turn down customers because you do not have what (most) customers want?

    By the way, the reason members are looking for the base model is not because sports one is expensive but because it does not serve their travelling needs as they usually have to travel with family and carry out household chores as well such as "carrying wheat for crushing into floor".

    Default YBR 125-First Look

    YBR 125First Look -1569370

    Yamaha?s much-awaited launch finally took place in the recent days with the YBR125 now available with the dealers, though still in limited numbers. We, at PBC, decided to visit a dealership and have some idea of the bike, to see if the bike is worth all that. It has been good three years since we first heard about Yamaha?s investment in organizing a motorcycle plant at Karachi.
    YBR 125First Look -1569375
    The first bike launched, as we already know, is YBR125. Although three years ago Yamaha told us that the upcoming models would be 125cc and above equipped with modern technology and powered by EFI engines, Yamaha has not fulfilled the whole promise and the YBR125 comes with carbouretor to ignite the single cylinder 125cc air cooled engine, although internationally the bike is available with EFI technology. Available colours are Red, Blue and Grey and all of them suit the personality of the bike.

    The very first look of the bike is quite catchy and we were like wow, this is something good. Overall build quality is pretty good. Especially we liked the fully enclosed plastic chain cover which is by far the most distinguished feature of this bike compared to other local brands. We have seen how chain covers easily get rusted and mar the looks of an otherwise clean bike, well that won?t be a problem in case of this bike.

    On our query the dealer told us that everything on the bike is Japanese except the tyres, which are of Servis brand, thus made in Pakistan, but we have sincere doubts that the rest of the parts are all made in Japan. This is primarily because although the bike has a pretty impressive overall finish but a careful observation made us doubt that at least engine head, fuel key, self-starter and the handle grips are locally manufactured.
    YBR 125First Look -1569374
    YBR 125First Look -1569373
    YBR?s wheels add to its beauty and will give the riders a smooth ride. Stock tyres are by Servis. Riders are advised to change the rear tyre as it may lose road grip in wet road conditions and muddy track because of the typical tread design which is good for dry on road use only. We have written to Yamaha authorities as well in this regard, but till the time Yamaha takes action we need to be cautious on our part. The good thing about the rims is, as informed by the dealer, the stock tyres can be used as tubeless tyres on this bike, which is a good news for long way riders.

    Bike feels light weight and suspensions are soft too, that coupled with a soft seat will ensure a comfortable journey. Front brake is single calliper disk brake while the rear one is drum. The bike comes with 5 speed gear box and the gear pattern is one down, four up. Fuel capacity is 13 litres.
    YBR 125First Look -1569371
    Before the launch of the bike there has been a lot of concern about the bike?s sound. And although it may be of great disappointment to many that the sound is quite humble and meek, I do not find it as of any negative trait as the bike is Euro standard and is not supposed to be noisy. Sound somewhat resembles to that of Piaggio but Piaggio?s sound is still louder, there you go..

    Just as we were viewing the bike a brand new Piaggio was also available there and although YBR excels Piaggio in a number of ways, we noticed at least two parts that YBR should have borrowed from Piaggio; clip on handle bars and foot rests. YBR comes with regular handle bar and footrests don?t give the made in Japan impression at all, Piaggio has got them better.

    YBR?s headlight is pretty stylish to look at, the performance and throw, however, we are not sure about yet. Obviously we didn?t get the chance to ride the bike else we would be able to share something about the riding experience as well but to sum it up, YBR is not just another bike in the market.

    Rs. 129400/- is the price of the bike as announced by the company. However, the dealers are selling it at much higher prices taking advantage of the low supply and high demand situation. Riders are advised to wait instead of buying on ON price.

    Cheers,
    Ride safe!

    But yes, without a Disc Brake upfront, it would be pointless to have that. I was hoping to see a YBR125 without that front stupid looking visor. This is more of my thing:

    This indeed, my friend, would have been a better product Yamaha relaunched-itself-with in Pakistan. Look how simple yet modern it is. It serves all the core requirements without having to trade-off style. And I think it would have costed a tad bit little because it does not have those fuel-tank visors and the volume of fuel tank is lesser too.

    PS: Is it only me or is it really worth drooling over?

    Unfortunately, i share your sentiments 100% on this one :p You just won me over with those red lined stuff

    I get it. Different people like different things. But if you take a general notice of today's bikes, they are becoming downright uglier. "Sporty" is not necessarily beautiful. Sometimes, "simple" is 100x more beautiful and prettier than 'sexy'. Maybe its just us, becoming too old for this sh*t, or maybe we are just mad .

    Anyhow, if the news of YBR125Z in this year's end is to be believed, then i am also already excited. I just hope that the original rumor about "3 models of 125cc" is true, and they do release a YBR without a front visor.

    By the way, why is it that after seeing this, Deluxe feels like a "stupidest" product of all, in this market segment. GS150, Piaggio and Yamaha ... Atlas Honda really need to up their game on this one, or they should just GTFO of this mess.
