The current design of Yamaha 125ZR since 2007. The design of the bike is nice, simple and macho enough. It was debut in 1999 with the first generation of 125Z and later followed up with 125ZR, which better and meaner.

At that time, there is no bike in the category that can compete with the bike. It was the era of Suzuki Best, Suzuki RG Sports, Yamaha SS, SS Two and Kawasaki K1, but none of the bike make a very deep impact like 125Z does. 125Z makes every other bike in the category seems like child plays. The technology offered by 125Z is far superior than what the people were thinking at that time and Yamaha was ahead in others in thinking of future of underbone bike.
I like this bike not because I want to rem pit, but I like what this bike has to offer.
You see, this is the only bike in the category that have monoshock suspension, front and rear disc brake, 6-speed gear, futuristic design and affordable!
Also, this bike is really fast. In standard condition, it can go up to 160km/h, tune the exhaust a bit, it’ll go up to 180km/h, tune it a little bit more, then you can’t measure the speed anymore since the meter is maxed at 180km/h!
I have heard that this bike can be tune to get 180 km/h just in the fourth gear.
Safety will become a thing to think here. Enjoy the speed only in the track. Not in public highway. Drive safely and be smart!
