Yamaha’s just revealed a new version of its knobbly-tyred BW’s 125 for 2021 – and it looks fantastic.

With Honda’s eagerly anticipated CT125 not coming to the UK, there’s a gap in the market for an off-road ready small capacity scooter. Maybe Yamaha’s BW’s 125 could be just the machine we’ve all been looking for. Ok, so at this stage the off-road ready scooter is only being marketed in Asia – but there’s still a chance it might make it over to Europe.


We don’t know a huge amount of information about the new machine, other than that it shares a good chunk of its chassis with the NMAX; which means it’s got 12hp, 11.2 Nm of torque, a 6.1 litre fuel tank and a total weight of 127 kg.

It looks like it’d be a hell of a lot of fun to ride, opening up a world of off-road possibilities to small capacity scooter fans and fledgling riders. We’re keeping our fingers crossed it makes it over to the UK.
