Full description


A pristine UK Yamaha RD125LC in showroom display condition.
Quarter faring and under-cowl, Speedometer, tachometer, temperature gauge, ignition switch incorporating steering lock, turn signal switch, headlight switch, dimmer switch, neutral indicator, horn, rear footrests, fuel valve, helmet holder, tool kit.

Finished in white the appearance of this successful 1980’s motorbike can only be described as immaculate.   The attention to detail is outstanding with every nut and bolt removed, refurbished or replaced and meticulously put back.  The plastics and decals are unmarked and all the switches, lights and controls work perfectly.  The frame has been professionally painted to manufacturer specification with rider and pillion foot rubbers having been replaced.  The seat remains in original material with minuscule markings.   A beautiful piece of Yamaha history.

Being an unrestricted UK bike this liquid-cooled 123cc single-cylinder high-performance power unit delivers an outstanding 21.1HP at 9,500rpm and 1.6kg-m of torque at 9,250rpm.  The many innovative features including YEIS (Yamaha Energy Induction System) and the unique single-shaft balance system inside the engine gives a turbine-smooth very wide power band through the rev range.  The closed-ratio six speed gearbox operated via a slick, remote linkage offers fast and sure gear changes.  (Please note if the motorcycle is to be put to use a running-in period of 300 miles is recommended before full throttle and entry into the power band).

The RD125LC is fitted with the same stylish cast-alloy ‘italic’ wheels as bigger models and are presented in fabulous undamaged, original condition.  A Pirelli City Demon 2.75–18 front and Yokohama 100/90-18 rear tyre is fitted with ample tread.  Hydraulic disc front brake and dustproof/waterproof rear drum brake combine to provide confident, controlled braking in all weather conditions.  

Owned by a Yamaha connoisseur of the highest standing this motorcycle reflects a no expense spared mentality to the build.  Selected in part due the bikes unmolested original condition in the first instance, with only a handful of owners to its name.  Forming part of a jaw dropping Yamaha collection including iconic bikes such as the RD350LC, RD500LC and an RD400E, rarely does such an offering come to market.  Fortunately, (and should the new owner wish), this motorbike is fully functional and road legal and not just a display spectacle.
