Cypress, CA (6/9/2010) - It’s that time of year again when ATV manufacturers start introducing their new line ups for the next year, and for 2011, Yamaha has added a new machine to their entry level Raptor product line. Joining the popular Raptor 250 and Raptor 90 for the 2011 season is the all new Yamaha Raptor 125 youth sport ATV.

Based on Yamaha’s Raptor 250 design, the Raptor 125 fills a void in the youth and entry level sport quad genre that had been previously been left to the Taiwan and Chinese manufacturers, and while the price of those machines were at considerable value, consumers were left somewhat unsatisfied by the quality and performance of those substandard brands.

With the introduction of the Raptor 125, Yamaha’s target market are those that are new to the world of ATV’s and also youth riders, who are looking to step up from 90cc models. Yamaha has also taken into consideration the state of the economy and that consumers are looking for value as well as quality, and Yamaha has offered the perfect balance of both in the Raptor 125.

2011 Yamaha Raptor 125 is based on the Raptor 250 & the pair share the same frame along with most components, but the Raptor 125 has some new fender styling & low profile Maxxis front & rear tires

One of the first things you notice about the Raptor 125 is the aggressive look of the machine that definitely fits right in with the Raptor family. This new ATV is powered by a new 124cc engine that features a two valve, single overhead cam and is electric start. It has a 5-speed manual transmission and has a broad power band. The 29mm Mikuni BSR Carburetor offers a light throttle effect to reduce thumb fatigue on those long trail rides.

The chassis of the Raptor 125 is based on the Raptor 250, but is more compact with the handle bars moved down and back, which is perfect for smaller and youth riders. The Raptor 125 also handles well and features 190mm of front wheel travel and the same a-arms and suspension components as the Raptor 250 with 5-way pre-load adjustable shocks. The Raptor 125 has plenty of stopping power as it includes dual hydraulic front brakes. The Raptor 125 comes standard equipped with Maxxis 19”x 6”-10” tires in the front and low profile Maxxis 18”x 9”-8” tires in the rear, which improves cornering and provides excellent traction.
