TDK SR says:

Why should Yamaha invest in R&D when YZ125s are not raced at the national level besides a support class? R&D will just raise the price & Yamaha sells thousands of these every year so they really don’t need to touch the still sells. Be thankful Yamaha still makes the YZ & truth be told if MXA hadn’t pushed the manufacturers so hard on the 4 strokes we still would have all the manufacturers making competitive 2 strokes.

As a 58 year old veteran rider my all time favorite other than my ‘74 Elsinore was my ‘94 YZ 125 I could turn faster laps on that thing than I could on my 250’s
