    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.

    The bike has adjustable rear suspension. So you can lower the bike for family. The back seat is indeed very wide

    Only engine was imported rest of the parts were locally assembled. Thats why GD price tag is sky.

Yamaha should immediately correct this "mistake" of not launching the basic version.
    It has been said by the company on number of occasions that YBRz (off-road/trail) is coming on 31 July whereas, YB 125 (basic) priced at 109000 approx - is due by 2nd or 3rd week of December. Yamaha is not in a hurry they have a full roll out plan till 2020 before they capture all segments of Pakistans two wheeler market. YBR is just a product to start things with. Trust me good times of Pakistani bikers are here I am waiting for the YBRz and will get one IA as I am more inclined towards the off road model

    Next two models will not launch too soon. Primarily because the plant has still not started working fully and secondly Yamaha would not do anything to affect the sale of first model. Besides, the other two models use the same engine with major change in design/category of the bike.

    That offroad model isnt really different from a regular ybr. That is it doesnt have longer suspension travel or ground clearance. It just has the looks of a trail bike

    It's not word of mouth. Follow Yamaha motor Pakistan website and soon Ull see the product line added to it if you look closely at their website n facebook page there is no mention of YBR launch as yet. From my perspective YBR is still in a pre launch phase intentionally by the company to create a demand supply gap.

    Third dealer was offering delivery in 1 month.

    Hence proved that it was not companies, it was our own people who has same mindset to take opportunity to loot people and damage companies repute.
    Try emailing Yamaha Motor Pakistan directly about it. See what they say and if they take any action.

    Its good to see public, these days, is more into "reviews" thing before going to purchase. In this way they can have value for money, at least in their own eyes and won't have to regret after making a purchase. But its more specific to poor countries like us. I don't think so that Europeans/US do that much research on "purchase".

    Well if everyone take a step on the base of other's experience, who would be the initiator then. I read somewhere the saying of Hazrat Luqman "A human's life is not that lengthy that he/she do all the experiments him/herself. He/She should also learn from the experiences/mistakes of others". But sometimes one should go "out of the way" and take the lead. Not listening to others sometime has also a charm in itself. I still remember the days of 1992 when i went market with my uncle to purchase a bike first time in my life. I was having a craze for Kawasaki GTO-125 those days. We seen a 1000km driven GTO in black color. New bike was around 42000PKR in pricing those days and aforementioned slighty used GTO-125 was being sold for 31000PKR. My heart was badly on that bike but my uncle said that it hasn't good after sale market and it drinks too much fuel etc. Some dealers in the market also let us down by saying similar kind of stuff, suggesting rather we should go for a Honda CG-125 or Yamaha YB-100. So we ended up buying a brand new CG-125 in 36900PKR. But Kawasaki never faded away from my heart and after using Five Star CG-125 almost three years i purchased a used GTO125 in 1995 for 53000PKR. Moral of the stroy :" Mind and heart are two different things and its upto you that you listen to which one".

Is it not a bad business strategy to turn down customers because you do not have what (most) customers want?
    That's the point brother, had they given a choice at this stage it would have effected the sales of their top end product. Just look at this way since the inception of CG-125 from Honda, no other product has come close to it, neither the deluxe nor the dream. Company would definitely like to see some of their high product selling before they target the other segment.

    YBR is totally chinese, made by Jianshe, dealers are lying about this, the build quality is same as Piaggio, i have also seen the bike in person for like half an hour, the build quality is very good and yes u r right at some places one can see some quality issues but no big deal. About sound Piaggio have gone louder with its 2014 model, exhaust is a bit bass-y now, on the other hand YBR sound is whisper-ish. Seat and riding posture is something this bike is best at, i was really surprised how comfortable this bike is. Looks and feature wise piaggio still stands on top but still its good to have something like YBR in our market and right before the day YBR is launched, RAVI has filled its shops with new stock of bikes and spare parts too, right now AL HAQ autos have 20 bikes in their showroom , this is what we want in our market some competition now Ravi is considering its business tactics, Suzuki already have some pretty good bikes but they will have to consider their price tag and Honda will have to consider some replacement for Deluxe.

    YBR is totally chinese, made by Jianshe, dealers are lying about this, the build quality is same as Piaggio, i have also seen the bike in person for like half an hour, the build quality is very good and yes u r right at some places one can see some quality issues but no big deal. About sound Piaggio have gone louder with its 2014 model, exhaust is a bit bass-y now, on the other hand YBR sound is whisper-ish. Seat and riding posture is something this bike is best at, i was really surprised how comfortable this bike is. Looks and feature wise piaggio still stands on top but still its good to have something like YBR in our market and right before the day YBR is launched, RAVI has filled its shops with new stock of bikes and spare parts too, right now AL HAQ autos have 20 bikes in their showroom , this is what we want in our market some competition now Ravi is considering its business tactics, Suzuki already have some pretty good bikes but they will have to consider their price tag and Honda will have to consider some replacement for Deluxe.

    20 of them in every color, all kinds of spare parts were are also made available a few days ago, Ravi is now feeling some threat before YBR they knew that they have the best bike so they were taking everything easy. AB AYE GA MAZA
