Yamaha YZF-R125 – Louis Special Conversion
The YZF-R125 from Yamaha is a thoroughly grown-up motorcycle, in both looks and performance, tailored to younger customers.
At last a serious and affordable 125cc supersport bike. When Yamaha first presented the R125 back in 2008, it was given a rapturous reception.
Not just a plaything – Yamaha YZF-R125
With full fairing, twin headlight, Deltabox frame, aluminium swing arm and generously dimensioned 17-inch wheels, this machine turns heads, and not just on the school car park – especially after a little customisation.
The stock plastic rearview mirrors are not exactly a feast for the eyes. If machined aluminium does it for you, then fairing mirrors from Highsider are the perfect answer, and perhaps a pair of sporty aluminium grips with rubber inserts, too. The rather bulky original turn signals also leave room for improvement. Smaller is possible, and still with E type approval! To complete the racing look, we replaced the oversized license plate bracket with an elegant model from Protech, and we've also added a dark fairing windshield from Bodystyle. Sport footrests and an exhaust system from Shark with rather more sound give the perfect finishing touch to the lean sports machine.
