Welcome to the Yamaha AG125 specifications and showroom review for 2020. The AG125 has only been around for a few years, to eventually replace the old AG100 version. If you are checking whether you can ride this as a learner, then yes the AG125 is ‘LAMS approved’. That said it is under 250cc so it doesn’t need to be ‘approved’.
It is easy to write about what seems like the same motorbike that also comes in a 200cc version. So choosing between them is about whether you want a little more power and willing to pay a little bit more. Elsewhere in the world I would assume that 125cc and 200cc versions attract different tax rates and registration fees hence to different versions. However you’d be wrong.
In terms of design, engine and tech the Yamaha AG125 seems virtually identical to the AG200 and hence ancient compared to it’s competitors. However there are even more downgrades on the AG125, such as the simpler rear swing arm, suspension setup and even simpler engine do make the two models quite different in the end. Since the Yamaha AG model range has such a long history in less urbanised countries it’s reputation, reliability and durability are well known so not surprising that it is classed as a ‘Farming motorbike’ and definitely ‘Agricultural motorbike’. As a result the Yamaha AG125 is the 5th best motorcycle for the farm in 2019 selling 157 units. This sales number is up from 138 in 2018.
