The RD125 was produced from 1973 until 1986. A well-styled road bike, the Yamaha had plenty of power from its two stroke engine driving through a five speed gearbox. The RD125 LC arrived in 1982 was a water-cooled single cylinder successor to the original air-cooled design. With its 12bhp engine, confident riders could achieve 100mph in good conditions. The Mk II followed in 1985 with some minor cosmetic adjustments and improved stability, handling and braking. Widely considered to be the ‘business’, the entire range was extremely popular, and continued to be so in an ever-more competitive market.

This very popular machine is now twenty-five years old and has been restored to its original specification and style by the previous owner. It is equipped with hard to source parts, such as a headlamp fairing and a fitted belly pan. The matching numbers Yamaha has been used sparingly by its current custodian for nearly seven years, and has been clearly well-looked after and garaged throughout the ownership. We are assured that it is in very smart condition and is ready to be enjoyed.

The file contains some old MOT test certificates and tax discs, and the V5C registration certificate.
