    Default ha125's experience with YBR125 ( 5000km's )

    Salaam everyone !

    Most of the members here know me as a die hard CG125 fan because I owned 3 CG's ( 1994, 2010 stolen, 2011 ) and always ready to defend whoever came up with something that CG sucks etc . But, ever since AHL launched its so called " Power Machine " Euro2 CG125, its quality went from bad to worst and I left hopes that AHL will even try to improve in the upcoming future...

    After 6 Years with HONDA CG125. I felt the need for a change and at that time there was no other bike worth giving a try....
    1) Piaggio had resale issues
    2) GD110 was too much for a small sized bike
    3) GS150 was better but I never admired its shape and finishing.

    Then came YAMAHA with their newly launched YBR125. I loved it's BLUE color and with the grace of Allah almighty I became the owner of one

    First impressions:-

    - Riding position seemed awkward as I was used to with CG's straight seat and tank
    - Gears were so hard, it was difficult to bring it back to neutral
    - Bike and Road grip was smooth
    - Brakes were OUTSTANDING
    - Annoying engine noise but silent exhaust

    That bike in Blue really was an attention seeker, I remember giving interviews to 4-5 fellow bikers on my way back home from showroom... Everyone praised it with " MashaAllah " and " Allah naseeb kary " like words and it continued for almost a month


    Running period :-

    Well in the running period I strictly kept my RPM's under 6,000 and oil changed at 500 and then again at first tuning.... Before first tuning, I tried to take it to its highest potential ( safe environment ) and it was DISAPPOINTING as well as SURPRISING...

    -Disappointing? Well it didn't go beyond 90kmph and it was really really disappointing. Considering a bike with such looks and better engine than the former it was a big THUMBS DOWN for YBR

    -Surprising? It was vibrationless and smooth even at its max... And I had a little bit of confidence on its brakes and grip which I never had in CG125 above 80kmph

    Fuel consumption :-
    In the running period where I kept the speed below 60 at all times, I managed to get 51kmpL. Yes, 51! It is the first and the last time though after the first tuning, the best I've got is 45kmpL and it all depends on your riding style

    Top speed:-

    After the first tuning and about 1500+ km's later, I tried to go parallel with my own CG ( driven by cuzn ). No one can deny the fact that CG in its initial gears is the best local bike... It went ahead easily in first 3 gears but later YBR took his time and was catching CG slowly. By the time I was almost parallel to it my speed on ODO was 115kmph. That is the maximum potential for it... And surprisingly RPM's were not even touching redline at all at 5th gear

    I was overall satisfied with it later


    Issues:-

    - The first and the most annoying issue in the beginning was the MISSING issue... Bike started to Knock at high RPM's. ( SOLVED - First tuning )

    - Silencer started to sound weird as if something is broken inside and rattling with the surface after 1800km's ( SOLVED - Replaced under warranty )

    - Trip meter was not resetting digits back to zero and speed needle started to vibrate at 60kmph ( REPLACED - Under warranty )

    - ( New Meter ) RPM needle started vibrating at 5000-6000 RPM 's ( Replaced under warranty )

    - ( Again new meter ) RPM needle vibrating even worse at 5000-6000 RPM's. At first, YAMAHA engineers tried to convince me that it is NORMAL in all YBR's but they failed to satisfy me when I told them to show me atleast 2/3 bikes that have issue similar. Then they put the blame on CDI unit and I'm waiting to receive new CDI anytime soon ( PENDING ).

    - Ridiculously expensive parts... Front headlight with assembly 10k. Indicators 1500/pair. Brake shoes 3,700/- PKR. Price of spares are almost close to that of HONDA cars.

    Conclusion:-

    Well, now at the end I would like to mention that YBR is without any doubt, so far, the most beautiful bike locally manufactured, providing comfort as well as performance... But, if you're considering it for a family ride, it is not the best choice for you. The max no. Of people that can sit comfortably is 2. Increasing this number will cause serious pain in driver's private areas because of tank design...

    Overall, the bike is very COMFORTABLE !
    much better in terms of safety and Road grip than other local bikes and price is just about REASONABLE considering the price of competitors in 125cc category

    Buddy the RPM has wireless input, it has no wire or cable attached so there is a possibility that cdi might've been fluctuating current

    nice thread you have shared your experience in detail and i believe overall its not
    very pleasant experience with ybr specially those list of issues except the missing
    issue others issue are common in atlas honda motorcycle shaking needles faulty
    meter and yeah muffler issues was quite unusual as well

    what did you do with bike it started achieving top speed 115km/h which is very good
    as first you wrote maximum it was doing 90km/h which is shame for this shape bike
    and price of 1 lakh 30k

    Yamaha is not going to develop its sales until they don't resolve spare part issue i mean
    seriously yar brake shoe for 3700 rupees and headlight complete 10,000 rupees
    meter costs around 4000 turn signals 1500 pair

    Man these parts are expensive then car parts cultus brake shoes costs genuine i guess 2200
    this is seriously INSANE INSANE EXPENSIVE SPARE PART PRICES at the moment people are buying
    bike as they have not seen such bike in pakistan in this price but when they will know about parts
    they will sale try to get rid of this bike and will never ever think of buying it

    I am personally very disappointed even if they start making these parts locally here max: they will
    reduce price some hundred rupees on many parts but still they will be hell expensive as compare to ahl
    take example of brake shoes suppose they cut its price by half still it will cost 1850 rupees which will
    still remain way expensive then atlas honda

    Last hope of change was Yamaha they have introduced change but so far they seem fail and considering
    their present their future seems fail and atlas honda will remain selling cd and cg stickers till eternity

    It just needed proper adjustment of tapets and carburetor and bike felt powered...

    I'm more concerned about meter because this deflection needle will increase gradually upto annoying levels and no local mechanic will understand the working of it and I'll be stuck with the faulty odo for ages...

    And yes, spares issue is really BAD... Too much expensive but I hope YAMAHA will cover it up

    In lahore, Mr. Khurram from New Sharif Autos... He knows YBR more than anyone I know... Before tuning I told him I need balanced economy - Power and tapet and carb adjustment was the major part in tuning....

    The input for speed needle is through cable attached to front wheel, but there's no input cable for rpm. It's wireless and I think current hi input hogi uski

    It must be taking reading from spark plug some thing attached with spark wire
    Display is not digital obvious but mechanism should be like digital tachometer
    If there is not tachometer cable attached with engine

    Bro first of all I would like to warmly welcome you in the YBR family and congratulate you on such a nice ride.

    Your detailed review is also appreciable and hope for more reviews in future too.

    You have shared that you replaced the odo meter with another one. Which was the other odo meter?

    Thank you very much for kind greetings bro. Meter is original not aftermarket as they were replaced under YAMAHA WARRANTY. However I noticed that the meter that came pre-installed had some sort of VIGO mentioned on its dial plates but the New one didn't
