Yamaha WR 125 R 2013


A distant descendant of the DTR 125, the WR 125 offers a more sporty, more nervous lineage, inspired by the 4-stroke cross country competitions developed by the brand in tuning forks. Despite the less and less popular craze for this kind of all-purpose machine, Yam continues his love affair with the 125 trail. And good for everyone, because these motorcycles are suitable for a lot of versatility, from high school in the morning to the cross country ride in the afternoon..

The WR 125 R gives itself something to flatter the owner, with a sporty line that is not unpleasant at all. We must admit that the WR 250 landed last year gave him some ideas on the style. The 4-stroke mono of the small WR comes from the sporty YZF-R 125. If its 15 horses felt a little tight in the mini R1, they will discover more liveliness in the WR, especially as the admission and the exhaust has been retouched for more responsiveness – on a typical enduro trail, we look more for the response at mid-range than the horses in the towers.

Since its 41 mm fork and its TT physique close to a racing version, the WR 125 R could almost fart with its equipment. Its factory-type enduro footpegs, its folding selector, the large suspension travel and generous ground clearance allow you to venture into many corners where the asphalt has not yet eaten the earth. Having fun in soft terrain and taking yourself for a dakar-man, the Yam allows you to do so thanks to a handlebar / saddle / footrest triangle favoring standing piloting; the tank and the saddle have been designed to allow the rider to easily move forwards or backwards.

This is enough to give back to many people the desires of simple, playful, and funny TT. Only the price makes it less accessible than its ancestors. Its single cylinder and its equipment explains inflation.
