2007 Yamaha Speed MX 120 Norifumi Abe

2007 Yamaha Speed MX

I have never know that there is Yamaha bikes that have the same style like the Honda Nova Dash, Kawasaki Leo Star or the most recent, the Suzuki Belang R150. Here is the Yamaha Speed MX presented by Norifumi Abe in year 2007 (the date of the picture).

Also known as Yamaha Tiara S 120, JR120 or just Speed.

The specs are amazing. This is 2-stroker with 120cc, monoshock rear suspension, front and rear 2-piston caliper brake system and 6-speed transmission. It never gets to Malaysia though. Teribble.

I’d like to say that this bike is the smaller brother to Y125Z which is already perfect in every way possible. The design is fresh and way much better than any bike at that time.

One of my friend in Greece tells me that there are some Y125Z parts that can be used to this Speed MX. I’m thinking the crankshaft can be easily swapped to get higher stroke of 54.7mm from the Y125Z.
