In Yamaha’s line of green machines, the WRs are authentic endurance sports machines. Suffice to say that if this 125 with the supermoto profile announces this first name, it must have solid arguments. First there is this line and this spirit, inspired by the WR 250, very sporty, aggressive, which returns the XTX 125 to the rank of toy. The 4-valve single-cylinder engine could not be more modern, with liquid cooling, state-of-the-art injection, and 15 hp at 9,000 rpm. If it comes from the sports car YZF-R 125, the exhaust and intake are adapted for better response to normal revs. The gearbox is also identical, except for the last report.
With 17-inch rims fitted with sport tires and 210 and 230 mm suspension travel, the WR-X is indeed a supermot. Valuable, lively, the machine seems ready to pounce. In addition to a front axle of good quality (41 mm fork, 298 mm brake disc), the Yam does not forget the nice little details, like the footrests with the big grip as on the competition machines, the folding selector, a large 140 rear gommard, or the body-color painted frame.
Since 2011, the WRX 125 is more accessible, optimized with a lowered saddle, with softer foam, a new fork and rear shock absorber, and a modified side stand.
Recall campaign in February 2017: Yamaha has decided to proceed as a precaution to replace the brake pedal on its 2014 WR125R and WR125X.
On some machines, a defect in the brake pedal welding could, in extreme cases, cause it to break when a significant force was exerted. To remedy this, Yamaha has therefore initiated a recall campaign which consists of replacing the brake pedal..
