2003 Yamaha TT-R125L Off-Road Model

In the past five years there has been a surge in the off-road market and at the top of that spike is Yamaha with a 266 percent growth in off-road motorcycle sales. Leading the charge for Yamaha is the wildly popular TT-R line, namely the TT-R125 and TT-R125L. These bikes began a revolution in the market spurring those looking for a new kind of weekend fun to head out to the desert or woods on two wheels. You could say the TT-R125 and TT-R125L are the leaders of fun!

The success of Yamaha’s YZ four-stroke motocross machines, which have scored numerous race wins in Supercross and National races, has inspired the TT-R90, TT-R125 and TT-R125L. Today’s young riders strive to achieve the goals of professional four-stroke racers, and the TT-R125L is designed to offer budding MX stars the opportunity to develop riding skills like the pros. Its no wonder unofficial TT-R races have popped up across the country. Whether it’s a group of guys buying TT-R to run through the woods together or a father that steals his kid’s TT-R to try his hand at a local event, these bikes evoke a feeling of camaraderie, competition and good ol’ fun.

Powering the TT-R125 and large-wheel TT-R125L is a 125cc SOHC air-cooled four-stroke engine that delivers strong low- to mid-range torque, making it suitable for both new and experienced riders for smooth, easy-to-handle power. Reliable, economical, quiet and clean running, this low-maintenance powerplant ensures the TT-R125s are both fun to ride and easy to maintain.

The difference between the TT-R125 and TT-R125L is that the TT-R125 is fitted with a 17-inch front wheel and 14-inch rear wheel, and the physically larger TT-R125L (large wheel) runs with a 19-inch front wheel and 16-inch rear wheel. The TT-R125 features front and rear drum brakes, while the TT-R125L utilizes a lightweight front disc brake and stiffer suspension setting for a larger or more aggressive rider. In all other respects these machines are identical.

Equipped with a YZ-style tank, air scoops, front and rear fenders, side panels, front numberplate and seat, the TT-R’s MX heritage is clear. The tubular high tensile steel frame is integrated with long travel front forks and a single rear shock designed to offer a smooth ride and excellent traction on a variety of terrain.

The 2003 TT-R125L and TT-R125 are available in Team Yamaha Blue/White at dealerships nationwide for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $2,699 and $2,399, respectively.
