Powered by the same 125cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine as the MT125 and R125, which produces 14.8 horsepower at 10,000rpm and 11.5Nm of torque at 8,000rpm, and equipped with the same Deltabox-style beam frame and 37mm upside down forks as the MT, the big changes for the new XSR125 Legacy are all on the style front.

It gets wire wheels, gold rims, distinctive paint work and a new two-piece aluminium muffler which Yamaha reckons ‘is sure to attract those looking to stand out from the crowd, but who still look for the reliability and build quality that comes with every new Yamaha’.

The Legacy also comes fitted with a set of Metzeler’s Karoo tyres as standard, while a whole host of Yamaha’s Genuine Accessories are available to help punters create their own unique steed, including an Akrapovic exhaust, a tank pad, screens and more.

Yamaha has confirmed that the XSR125 Legacy will be available in UK dealers from June, at a price of £4,950. It’s not cheap, but with some top-quality equipment as standard and Yamaha’s well-regarded build quality shining through, new riders can buy with confidence that’s it’s going to look after them for years to come.
