The Yamaha YS125 is an incredible learner motorcycle from Yamaha, and it was put through it's paces around Norwich for the day!
Thanks to Tinkler's Motorcycles in Norwich I was able to try out the YS125, and was really impressed by how much fun it was. For a motorcycle aimed at learners and commuters I wasn't expecting a huge amount - but it really put a smile on my face, and I really enjoyed it! Which is saying quite a bit for riding around city roads and being stuck at red lights for half the day...
Yamaha stress the comfort, economy and enjoyable nature of the bike - and for something so lightweight at 129kg wet, it truly lives up to this. Great to see an 'Eco Indicator' on the bike to tell you you're riding economically, and acheiving what will be 100+MPG from the 14 litre tank.
The YS125 is a commuter motorcycle that you can depend on!
