Yamaha’s retro learner bike has just gotten a refreshed Legacy Edition for 2022 – and judging by the new colors, spoked wheels, and chunkier Metzeler Karoo tyres, it’s going to be quite the stylish addition to Yammie’s fleet.
As per pretty much any variant, Yamaha’s XSR125 Legacy Edition keeps the same engine and chassis as the original bike. For the XSR125, that means a 14.8bhp, 125cc, single-cylinder thumper (the same as the MT-125 and the R-125) decked out with Variable Valve Action and connected to a two-piece aluminum muffler cover, “which replaces the older all-black design.”
By ‘replace,’ they mean doing away with the blacked-out aesthetic entirely, opting instead for golden 17in spoked rims (said to be inspired from Yammie’s ‘60 and ‘70 racebikes), that aluminum muffler mentioned above, and “a raft of aluminum brackets and fittings across the machine.”
Naturally, to complement this edition, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has also included a fleet of accoutrement with which to deck out your pretty XSR125 (Akrapovic exhaust, tank pad, screen, and luggage is all included in that).
The XSR125 Legacy will be available (in the UK) as of June, with the bike retailing for £4,950, according to First Faq.
