Building on the success of the early off-road DT-1 models, Yamaha Corporation in 1974 introduced the dual purpose Yamaha DT 125 and Yamaha DT 175. Both of these have single cylinder two strokes air-cooled engines, Mikuni carburetor, V-shaped reed valve and drum brakes both at front and rear. The body of all DT series motorcycles have been modified to suit perfectly the dual purpose they have been designed for. They had lightweight body, raised fender and exhaust, handlebars with cross members, telescopic front forks and dual shock swinarm rear suspension.
Development of Yamaha DT125 & Yamaha DT175
Especially Yamaha DT125 went through many modifications and updates over the coming decades, most noticeably the single shock absorber at rear swing arm called "mono-cross" - MX, liquid cooled engine on the DT 125LC model, in mid 1980's disc brakes at front and in 1987 on Yamaha DT 125 R also rear.
Since introduced, Yamaha DT125 and Yamaha DT 175 were ideal for variety of functions whether it was commuting to work, enduro fun or off-road adventure. The engine size of these trail bikes is one of the main differences between these two models, however Yamaha DT175 hasn't gone through so many modifications. Most of the other parts are interchangeable and usually match both models.
Yamaha DT125 production continued successfully until the new millennium, with the most recent models Yamaha DT 125 R.
