Why choose the Yamaha YZF-R125?

The Yamaha YZF-R125 is the most popular sports bike from the Japanese manufacturer on The Bike Insurer.

That means more motorbike insurance requests came in for the R125 than any of its bigger siblings.

And the reasons? It’s a beautiful looking bike, it’s almost as quick as it looks (even for a 125cc) and it’s extremely reliable, as you can see from our reviews from real YZF-R125 riders.

Far exceeded my expectations, the bike was quite expensive fro a 125 (just under £3,000 for a 2010 plate with 9k on the clock) but as it's mint condition and they hold their value I should get most of that back when I upgrade.

Of course being a 125 it's not fast, but I knew that before I purchased. The build quality, looks and reliability are excellent though, and I expected close to 100mpg on a good run but have averaged 116.1mpg over 2,813.0 miles (best being 122.1 and worst being 106.5 tracked with fuelly.com).

Cheap to insure and run, pays for itself and will lead me on nicely to bigger and better things (R6 here we come). 100% recommended if you can afford the money up front (remember you'll likely get most of it back when you do move on!)

An amazing looking bike for 125cc, looks better than some of the more powerful bikes out there, however I realised after a few months that the price tag for a brand new model is a bit much for my first bike. It would have been a better idea to buy a second hand model for a much lower price, non the less it is still a very impressive bike and others on the road seem to think so too.
