The XSR125 will be placed lower than the already present XSR155 motorcycle and will be based on the same engine platform as Yamaha's popular MT-125 and R125 bikes.

City oriented riding dynamics:

The new XSR125 packs a range of features that make it an ideal motorcycle for a fun and comfortable daily ride. Its wide handlebars, upright riding position, and swept-back footpegs contribute to giving it a sporty yet comfort-oriented ride. In addition to that, it also features a flat tuck and roll seat that is likely to complement the bike's overall rider-friendly dynamics.

Exterior design:

The new XSR125 carries the same looks and design as the bigger XSR155.

It gets a circular headlamp residing inside a black dipped outer housing. Down below sits USD front forks and body-coloured fender. The fuel tank sports a black strip which adds to a sportier appeal on the bike. It then gels-in with a tuck and roll single seat and there is also a small-sized circular tail light that contributes to its neo-retro appeal.

In terms of dimensions, the XSR125 is close to 10 mm taller than the bigger XSR155 bike.

Engine and specifications:

At the heart of the bike sits a 125cc single-cylinder engine. The same engine also powers the company's other bikes such as the R125 and the MT-125. This powertrain has been rated to develop 15 PS of power and 11.5 Nm of peak torque. And comes with a 6-speed manual transmission.

India launch:

Yamaha Motor India might not introduce the XSR125 in the country anytime soon. Currently, it has its eyes set on the upcoming launch of the FZ-X motorcycle.
