Yamaha Resonator 125 concept

Retro cool for riders far too young to get the reference

FOR a while it seemed that ‘retro’ was going to be one of those fads that comes and goes but there’s no doubt that it’s now a real motorcycling segment that’s here to stay.

And Yamaha recognises that you don’t have to actually remember the ‘good old days’ to long for your own rose-tinted version of them, which is why it has developed this 125cc single-cylinder concept to reveal at the Tokyo Show this month.

Here’s the official line on what looks like a very realistic-for-production concept bike:

The Resonator125 is a concept model that proposes a lifestyle with an authentic sport bike for young people who have not yet discovered the joys of motorcycling. With a lightweight, slim and compact chassis and an instrument panel assembly using an innovative device, this model melds elements of the near future with the nostalgic for a new fusion of motorcycle eras. It also sports wood panels on the fuel tank and seat cowl with authentic wood grain material used in guitars and engravings on the muffler, fuel tank cap and more done with same intricate techniques used for brass wind instruments. The result is a motorcycle that seeks to inspire young people with concepts and qualities that only the Yamaha brand can deliver.

Engine type = Air-cooled, 4-stroke Cylinder arrangement = Single cylinder Displacement = 125 cm3 Fuel supply system = Fuel injection
