2005 Yamaha TT-R125LE Off-Road Models
One of the most highly touted play-bikes in the Yamaha lineup, the TT-R125E, TT-R125L and TT-R125LE continue to offer more of the same good times this year. Fun abounds on the 2005 TT-R125s. They’re perfect for new riders, and it’s versatile enough for the whole family. And to verify the fun-factor, Cycle World Magazine actually named the TT-R125 the Best Play-bike of 2004. You can expect more of the same for 2005.

Since the bike’s introduction, TT-R races have popped up across the country. Whether it’s a group of guys buying TT-Rs 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.

The success of Yamaha’s YZ four-stroke motocross machines, which have scored numerous supercross and motocross race wins and championships, has inspired the TT-R125 family of motorcycles. However, the “E” that has been added to the tail end of two of the model names stands for Electric Start, which makes Cycle World’s top play-bike of the year even more fun in 2005. Starting and riding the ultra-fun TT-R125E and TT-R125LE models is as easy as a push of the magic button.

The basic differences between the TT-R125E, TT-R125L and TT-R125LE are the wheels and suspension. The TT-R125E features a 17-inch front wheel and drum front brake and a 14-inch rear wheel, while the TT-R125L and TT-R125LE use a larger 19-inch diameter front wheel mated to disc brake along with a 16-inch rear wheel. In addition, the TT-R125L and TT-R125LE feature stiffer suspension to accommodate a larger rider. The only difference between the TT-R125L and the TT-R125LE is that the LE model features an electric start, while the L model does not.

Powering the TT-R125s 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 and delivering a smooth, easy-to-handle power curve. Reliable, economical, quiet and clean running, this low-maintenance powerplant ensures that TT-R125s are both fun to ride and easy to maintain.

Equipped with a YZ-style tank, air scoops, front and rear fenders, side panels, front number-plate and seat, the TT-R’s MX heritage is immediately visible. 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. Suggested Retail: $2,699 USD.
