There are a lot of ways to live the high life, but none so special as going full-tilt boogie on a 125cc two-stroke. They are a blast to ride and a dream to work on. The Yamaha YZ125 may be getting old, but it sure isn’t played it. The venerable little tiddler has withstood the test of time. It gives up some technology to the 2018 TM MX125, 2018 Husqvarna TC125 and 2018 KTM 125SX, but it is still a durable, well-suspended and worthy workhorse 125.
