Yamaha YBR 2023 Model in Pakistan: What to Expect?

Yamaha YBR has become the 2nd most popular 125cc bike in Pakistan after Honda 125. It is due to its elegant body design and impressive features which were missing in CG 125.

What Should Be Introduced in the 2023 Model? Customers’ Expectations

Do you find anything which is missing in the above-mentioned features? Well! There is always room for improvement. So, let’s see what people are expecting in the upcoming model (YBR 2023). 

Digital instrument Cluster

YBR and its “G” model, both have analogue instrument clusters. Both models now cost over 3 lacs and at this price, a digital instrument cluster is not a big demand.

Rear Disc Brake

Although YBR 125 has a single piston disc brake on the front side, its rear wheel comes with a drum brake. It is now time that Yamaha brings a disc brake on the rear side as well.

Upgraded Air Scoops Design / Shape

Well! The YBR has been coming with almost the same air scoops since its introduction. Many people now want a new design (not just stickers but shape as well). 

Modified Exhaust

Initially, YBR was introduced with a chrome color exhaust that was known for less noise. After that, the company introduced a much localized exhaust (with more sound) as it was demanded by the customers. But now, people are saying “in search of gold, we lost diamonds”. Most of them want a less noisy exhaust which has international standards.

Comfortable Seat

Yes! You read it right! YBR may have a wider seat that many relate to comfort. But its owners mostly complain about the hardness of the set foam. The company needs to improve the cushioning to make it more comfortable during long rides.

Engine Kill Switch

Many want an engine kill switch which is available in a few other bikes. As YBR 125 is the most expensive 125cc bike in the country, it is a feature many would like in it.

Dipper Switch (light high/low beam)

Dipper switch is among the most demanded items in YBR 125. The company should pay attention to it and bring the changes as per the customers’ requirements. 

New Alloy Rim Design

People are getting bored after looking at the same style of YBR’s Alloy rim for almost 7 years now. It is time to bring a new alloy rim design for the supreme 125 bike in Pakistan. 

Better Shock Absorbers

It might be shocking news for some people as many of us think YBR shocks are the best in the 125cc category. Yes! They are the best but only for major bumps and jumps. So, the company must consider it seriously and pave out a way to make the ride more comfortable.

Modern Carrier

YBR has got a great shape but there is one prominent flaw (for many people), the carrier rack. It looks pretty old-fashioned. The company can introduce a modern carrier to improve YBR’s overall aesthetics. 

New Light Design

New light design is what people are looking forward to in the upcoming YBR 2023 model. We are talking about the modification in both models (YBR 125 and YBR 125G). 

DRLs

Well! It might be too much to ask but some YBR lovers also like to see DRLs in the upcoming model.

Yamaha YBR 2023 Price in Pakistan

Expectations! We can only hope that the Dollar rate will come down and then Yamaha will bring down the prices of YBR. But it may not happen. The prices are more likely to increase because of the increasing Dollar rate in Pakistan. 

Yamaha’s main competitor Honda has launched 125 2023 models without price increase. So, we can expect if the company launches YBR 2023 models soon, it will also keep the prices unchanged. As per some dealers, Yamaha may not even roll out a new 2023 model.

Let’s see the prices of the 2022 model YBR.

Rs.300,000Rs.312,500 (BLACK & RED) and Rs.315,500 (GRAY)

Conclusion

Yamaha YBR 2023 is the most anticipated bike among the 125cc bikes. We have mentioned what people expect in the upcoming model. In the meanwhile, you can buy existing YBR 125.
