In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Yamaha’s first-ever entry into a World Grand Prix race, Yamaha is proud to introduce four new Special Edition models for 2022—the stunning new YZF-R125, YZF-R3, YZF-R7 and YZF-R1 World GP 60th Anniversary Editions. Inspired by Yamaha’s historic decision to compete in its first World GP race at the 1961 Grand Prix of France, and based on the iconic 60th Anniversary Yamaha white and red chain block livery recently unveiled on the factory YZR-M1 race bikes at the 2021 Official MotoGP™ Test in Qatar, these striking machines pay tribute to Yamaha’s passion for racing and winning at the highest levels of motorsport.

“Racing has always been in Yamaha’s DNA, as well as a cornerstone of motorcycle development. Nowhere is this fact more evident than with our R-series bikes, which have benefited from years of Grand Prix racing. Technology and designs have trickled down to our production Superbike and Supersport machines, making them dominant forces in MotoAmerica racing for so many years,” said Derek Brooks, Yamaha Motorcycle Product Line Manager. “That’s why we’re thrilled to give Yamaha enthusiasts the opportunity to own this piece of Yamaha racing history. These distinctive World GP 60th Anniversary editions are amazing to see in person with the instantly recognizable classic white and red Yamaha Racing livery and a range of other special detailing.”

Along with the World GP 60th Anniversary color scheme, each bike also includes gold wheels, gold forks, Yamaha factory race-bike Gold Tuning Fork emblems, black levers and special commemorative badging on the airbox cover.

Built to the same high standards as every R-Series, the R125 gives every rider the chance to become a part of R/World. Equipped with R1-inspired bodywork and a compact Deltabox frame – as well as a high-efficiency EU5 engine and high-specification suspension and brakes, the R125 is the ultimate lightweight supersport.
