Yamaha YZF-R125 From £5,300

R stands for Race. And every motorcycle in the legendary R-Series family can trace its roots straight back to Yamaha’s winning MotoGP® and World Superbike machines. The radical new bodywork on the new R125 is inherited from the R1 and R7, giving this lightweight 125cc Supersport some serious big bike attitude. And equipped with a powerful central LED headlight and dual LED position lights and M-shaped nose, its aggressive new face oozes pure R-Series DNA.


Featuring race-developed Supersport geometry, the Deltabox chassis is equipped with state-of-the-art 41mm KYB upside-down front forks and link-type rear suspension for super-agile handling. The footrest/seat/handlebar layout gives a sporty riding position for optimum control – and the new 5-inch TFT instruments with smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth® keep you informed, and in touch.

For strong performance at all speeds the 125cc EURO5 4-stroke engine is equipped with Yamaha’s power-boosting Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology – and the traction control system and assist & slipper clutch enhance controllability when you’re accelerating and decelerating. With a premium finish available in a choice of Icon Blue and Tech Black, R125 has everything you need to connect into R/World.

Motorbike finance is a way for you to buy a new or used motorbike by spreading the cost over a period of months. So, instead of having to pay everything upfront, you can split the cost into manageable amounts that are paid in regular monthly instalments.

There are three main types of motorbike finance available through The Motorbike Financer, the most popular of which is Hire Purchase, or HP as it’s more commonly known. The other financing options are Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) and Personal Loans.

If you see the term ‘guaranteed finance’, it’s important to remember that no one can guarantee your application will be successful until they’ve taken your personal details, noted which motorbike you want and checked your credit file. All of these things will make a difference to your likelihood of being accepted or not, so when you see the words ‘guaranteed finance’, it’s usually a good reason to be cautious.

The traditional way of arranging motorbike finance is to take out a finance plan from the dealer when you buy the motorbike. But if you sort things out with The Motorbike Financer before you get that far, you give yourself three big advantages:
  • You know exactly what you can afford before you get to the dealer – you’re negotiating from a position of strength
  • You’ve had the chance to make sure you’ve got a deal that’s right for you. Dealers usually offer only a limited number of finance providers
  • You save time. We can deliver a lending decision quickly, often within seconds of submitting your application. Then we can help you with the admin, paperwork and negotiations with the dealer.
Yes, we can help people with a less-than-perfect credit history. You may find that you’re not offered the great rates that someone with excellent credit history might get, but we may still be able to help you find a finance option to suit your circumstances.

We’re often able to help customers that have been refused elsewhere.

If you’ve applied somewhere else (such as a bank, motorbike dealership or even another finance broker) and have not been successful, you might start to think that nobody can help. However, that doesn’t have to be the case. Some of the lenders we work with actually specialise in helping people with bad credit to get motorbike finance, so we’ll try our best to find the right finance option for you.

Yes, you can choose a motorbike from any reputable UK dealership or if your lender permits it, we can do private sales also.

Once you’ve found a motorbike, you just need to share the details with your advisor and they’ll do the rest.
