    World GP 60th Anniversary colours

    Yamaha’s original GP bikes featured a white fairing with red “speed block” graphics, as well as a red front fender and golden wheels. The R125 World GP 60th Anniversary recreates this iconic look and pays tribute to the machines and riders that have helped Yamaha win over 500 Grand Prix and 38 World Championships, since the company’s first GP in 1961.

    High-tech 125cc EU5 engine with VVA system

    The R125 World GP 60th Anniversary’s engine benefits from an innovative Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) system that optimises the valve position for high levels of low rpm torque with strong high rpm power – and delivers excellent fuel efficiency. A wide diameter throttle body gives a smooth and controllable throttle feel – and the exhaust system produces a sporty and emotive sound.

    Excellent combustion efficiency

    To achieve high levels of intake efficiency the R125 World GP 60th Anniversary’s engine is equipped with large intake and exhaust valves as well as a compact combustion chamber. Combined with the high-tech VVA – as well as the large throttle body and sports exhaust system – this configuration produces impressive acceleration.
