Yamaha's popular YBR125 was launched in 2005 and featured a couple of minor changes throughout its history:
- Pre 2007 models use a carburetor and post 2007 models utilise fuel injection.
- In 2008 a Custom variation was launched, featuring high bars, a lower seat and more chrome, albeit at a slightly higher price when new. There isn't much in it used and it's arguably better looking.
Features include a steel frame, air-cooled 10bhp engine and 245mm front disc, although it's only a drum brake at the rear.
Beyond that there is only really the comfortable upright seating position to mention, alongside the minimum hassle day to day running.
Available colours: white, grey, black, blue and red.
