Very easy to ride.
Very good fuel economy.
None so far.
Bought the YBR because of the mostly excellent reviews and the deal on offer at the local Yamaha dealers - £200 off and free TPFT insurance. I'd not ridden for 21 years (CB125 T-1988) and wanted something easy to ride and reliable.
The engine is very smooth for a bike of this size and vibration through handlebars/footpegs is minimal. The clutch is light, controls wellplaced, seating comfortable and it's an extremely easy and natural ride. Currently studying for the Theory Test and then on through the Government obstacle course that is now the bike test but am planning to keep the YBR for a while yet.
