The Yamaha YBR 125 (Model 2011) Is a road bike that can be appreciated by only beginners with low expectations. The motorbike's engine power isn't what it could easily be as it only serves 10 horse-powers (hp).
Whilst driving the YBR 125 the seat is reasonably comfortable for a certain period of time, after driving for approximately 1 hour or above the seat looses it's depth/height as the material can't sustain the person's weight and the engine's vibration for an extended amount of time; this concludes in an uncomfortable drive. The worst aspect of the bike overall certainly is the clutch, it starts working only at the very end and isn't stable therefore easily wiggles; once the bike is in motion the start is never smooth due to the chain that poorly 'clacks'. The YBR is not a great bike but it is more than enough to be driven in the city-center and for some light country-side trips. It certainly can not go off-road unless driven on a non-inclined road with slightly un-regular terrain due to the bike's poor quality suspensions, the front suspensions are thin and the travel isn't long due to the bike's low overall height; the rear suspensions couldn't be worse since they are two spring-shock (short travel) equipments mounted on both right and lefts sides of the motorbike. Finally, one good aspect of the motorbike is it's light weight and good hand-ability even with a second passenger and the motorbike's driving panel with green night-lights and clear indicators. To conclude, the Yamaha YBR 125 (Model 2011) is a reasonably good bike to be driven mostly in the city-center and partially in the country-side, it's engine is powerless but the comfort and equipment compensates it.
