Yamaha has finally unveiled the 2021 MT-125. The smallest motorcycle in Yamaha's MT streetfighter range has received new colors as part of the update. There is a Storm Fluo colorway that includes a matte white with red accents on the wheels and tank. From a design point of view, the MT-125 has the same design as its older brother, the MT-15, with an aggressive front fascia, a sculpted fuel tank with tank extensions, and a short tail section. It's the mechanics where 125 differs from 150, for obvious reasons. It's powered by a 124.7cc Euro 5 compliant, single-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Operation (VVA).
The MT-125, on the other hand, comes equipped with a telescopic fork, box-section swingarm and single-channel ABS. Suspension duties are taken care of through inverted forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear while braking is done by disc brakes at both ends. The MT-125 is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Apart from the new colors, the 2021 Yamaha MT125 comes with an 11-liter fuel tank. The engine produces 14.7 hp at 9,000 rpm and 12.4 Nm at 8,000 rpm. However, the rest of the motorcycle remains the same.
Sure, the MT-15 misses out on the premium equipment, but it still delivers exciting performance, something the 125 Duke lacks. With everything in mind, it's pretty clear that the Yamaha 125cc won't make much sense for the brand. Yamaha is likely to launch the MT125 in Nepal by 2021 and once launched in Nepal the MT15 will be the most-affordable performance naked motorcycle.
