Updated R125 due this week

Popular learner sports bike gets new suspension, wheels, brakes and styling

YAMAHA will this week announce an updated version of its YZF-R125 sports bike, with new styling, suspension, brakes and wheels.

The popular learner model is expected to get lighter wheels, upside-down forks and a new front brake disc with radially-mounted caliper.

Styling will be revised to more closely resemble the bigger R6, with a new air-duct in the fairing nose between the headlights.

The frame and engine have not been changed.

Official details are due to be announced on Friday morning.
