Yamaha has just released a video which shows its all-new YZF-R125 learner legal sportbike being put through its paces. And it looks like a hell of a lot of fun.

First unveiled at Intermot a few weeks, the new Yamaha YZF-R125 is a special bit of kit. In fact, it’s the first 125cc machine with variable valve timing (VVT). The high-tech system uses a version of the system that we’ve already seen on the firm’s R6 and R1 that operates the motor’s variable valve control, fuel injection and cooling systems. That’s not all, the bike also gets a new swingarm and revised geometry to make it more sporty.
