The GSX-R125 has an aggressive look and a high-quality finish that reflects the heritage of the GSX-R line. Thanks to wind-tunnel development, the sleek bodywork also enhances the GSX-R125’s easy handling and aerodynamic performance. The GSX-R125 has the smallest projected frontal area in the 125cm3 class, which contributes to better acceleration, fuel economy, and cruising stability by reducing lift and drag. The GSX-R125’s smooth, strong fairing and bodywork pieces not only look great, they are also lighter than the bodywork used by competitors.
Reflecting its GSX-R heritage, the GSX-R125 features vertically stacked LED headlights, with the low beam above the high beam, and position lights on each side of the headlight. The GSX-R125’s LED headlights are bright and compact, lighter and longer lasting compared to conventional halogen-bulb headlights seen on competing machines. Because LED headlights use about 15% of the electrical power required by conventional bulbs, less engine power is needed to run the motorcycle’s alternator, improving acceleration and fuel economy. The LED license plate light on the rear fender is light and compact and much more durable and vibration resistant than the conventional bulb lights installed on competing 125cm3 machines.
