After successful acceptance of YBR series, Yamaha Motors brings another model to Pakistan after two years – the Yamaha YB125Z. The bike was unveiled at an event held today in Lahore.
With the launch of the new YB125Z, Yamaha hopes to attract Pakistani customers and challenge the dominance of Chinese bike makers as well as competing Japanese brands such as Honda that are present in the local market.

Yamaha With a Fresh Start
The latest model of the Yamaha bike contains longer and wider seats, and is specially designed for less vibrations with the help of engine balancer.
The meter contains gear count, which can be seen as an unnecessary shenanigan but it will be helpful for new motorcyclists.
The YB125Z also features self-start mechanism and has powerful headlight halogen lamp.
Yamaha representatives said that the new models will be available in the market from mid-April and will cost PKR 115, 900 in Pakistan.
