For 2008 Yamaha introduce the YBR125 Custom, a stylish and practical model which expands the company’s diverse 125cc line up.

The new YBR125 Custom is closely-based on the extremely popular YBR125 which has established an enviable reputation for its quality, reliability, simplicity, stable handling and value for money.

Custom style with affordable practicality

With its beautiful new bodywork and a range of special comfort-enhancing features, the YBR125 Custom is designed for the rider who is looking for a stylish, affordable and reliable motorcycle.

The focal point of the new bodywork is the beautifully-finished 12-litre teardrop fuel tank which gives the YBR125 Custom a distinctive look. Matching the timeless style of the new fuel tank are deeply valanced front and rear fenders which protect the rider from road surface dirt, and also emphasise the ‘big-bike’ looks – and for an added touch of class the instruments and flashers feature a brilliant chrome finish.

Also exclusive to this new 125 custom is a stylish large-capacity muffler featuring a chromeplated heatshield. Equipped with a highly-efficient catalyser, this muffler ensures that the EU3- compliant YBR125 Custom is one of the quietest and cleanest machines in the class.

For enhanced practicality and enhanced comfort a chrome-plated rear carrier is fitted, featuring an integral grab rail.

Comfortable riding position

In addition to the stylish new bodywork, the YBR125 Custom also features raised handlebars and a luxuriously-padded dual seat which accentuate the bike’s handsome custom style.

The new handlebar/seat/footrest relationship also offers a more relaxed and upright seating position which is 20mm lower than the standard YBR125, making this cool new 125 a comfortable daily commuter and attractive weekend runabout.

New-style 9-spoke cast wheels with a wide rear tyre

The new YBR125 Custom is equipped with new-style 9-spoke alloy wheels which keep unsprung weight low for good suspension performance and easy manoeuvrability. And for strong roadholding the new Custom is fitted with a wide section 3.50-16 rear tyre and a 3.00-18 front tyre.
