Newly Launched Yamaha YBR-125 2018 Comes with Notable Upgrades

Yamaha Motor Pakistan has unveiled the new 125cc Yamaha YBR and it looks nothing short of a mechanical beauty. Yamaha kept YBR’s design sporty as always and brought a few upgrades as well.

The two-wheeler is set to become commuters’ favourite choice in the 125cc range. The company has offered a specs rich bike at a competitive price.

Yamaha bikes are very popular in the rural areas of Pakistan, however, since the YBR model came out it has become increasingly popular in the cities as well. The company is already proving to be a tough competitor for motorbike giants such as Honda in Pakistan. With this new model, Yamaha surely will increase its share in the bike sector of the country.

Let’s have a comprehensive look at what new 2018 YBR 125 has to offer.


The all-new bike comes with better shock absorbers to allow while driving the bike on bumpy roads. YBR 125 2018 has a single cylinder 4-stroke overhead camshaft 125cc engine with a capacity of 13 litres and an above average fuel economy.

The bike features a self-start button along with a kick start option if you are in the mood to stretch your legs a bit. YBR 125 features alloy rims with a wheelbase of 1385 mm. The bike now comes with a free flow exhaust, updated carb, new air scoops, upgraded air filter for better flow of air and side covers with an improved look.

The HUD has an attractive speedometer with a fuel gauge indicator. The front tire of the bike has a single disc brake while rear tire comes with a drum brake. The heavy-bike-esque front headlight has a 12V halogen bulb to light the night. It has a dry weight of 114 kg and comes in three colours:

The post will be updated once the photos of 2018 model are out. For now, here is a brief look the new model;


The bike comes with a price tag of Rs 130,500. It seems quite reasonable considering the design and performance of the 125cc motorcycle.

    • “The bike now comes with a free flow exhaust, updated carb, new air
      scoops, upgraded air filter for better flow of air and side covers with
      an improved look.”

    • There are a limited images of the newer model. They will be added once they are officially released by Yamaha.

  • Yamaha first started providing low prices sport types bikes and now another compaines also copying their idea for e.g just honda launched honda 150 model in just 162000.

      • How about Service and parts? Can you occasionaly ride with two adults and 2 kids? One issue with 150 is that bottom of bite would hit Speed brakers, and I don’t live in DHA or Behria…

        • Yes you can find spare parts easily and it does have good ground clearance, space for 2 adults and kids might be little low but you can adjust

        • Its a Sports Bike, so Please consider it Single ride bike.
          For multi person seated, chose Yamaha YD 125.

          • Is there any Bike that comes with Self-Start option?

            I saw few Electric Bikes, however the major drawback on those is Batery Life, spending 8k per year just for Batteries make them expensive (it is the amount that I spend on Fuel/Oil Changer per year).
