Yamaha SS 125 Price
To sum it up, SS125 puts up a strong candidacy on the 125cc front with its punchy performance and agile handling. Overall, SS125 is a good threat to some established 125cc bikes like Honda Shine, Hero Honda Glamour and TVS Flame, with power output on par with many and also perhaps the style. And with the ex-showroom price of Rs. 56,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi), it’s one of the lesser-priced bikes. If you are eying for fuel efficient, powerful city commuter bike and already a fan of Gladiator's design, then no wonder Yamaha SS125 is the one which could suit you just well.

Review of Yamaha SS 125
Yamaha SS 125 OverView
Yamaha. For the bikers who crave for performance, the name says it all. Think of the “Triple Tuning Forks” logo, and what instantly comes to mind are meaner machines on wheels which are intended just for one stuff – Hard Core Performance. In India too, Yamaha has offered some lustrous bikes like RD350, RX100 and presently YZF-R15, which are truly drool-worthy. But amidst of this vast period of 2-stroke to 4-stroke transformation, Yamaha has struggled a lot like an athlete out of his track-and-field activities due to injury. And in this duration, it launched several products, amongst which some deserved to be in the porch of at-least every 5th Indian, but alas failed to do so. One such product was Yamaha Gladiator. Despite being almost perfect at the time of its launch, it still wasn’t able to pick up the pace. Time doesn’t wait for anybody, and this made Yamaha to re-launch the same Gladiator with a new name, SS125. This bike sports some apparent cosmetic changes with certain refinement done on the engine. In a desperate attempt to capture market volumes, Yamaha is trying all permutation and combinations to somehow create a mark in the ever burgeoning Indian two wheeler market. And in the same bid, here comes another silent offering, the SS125 from their stables.But only changing the clothes with some additional stitching can change its persona and fortunes? Let’s find it out.
Yamaha SS 125 Designing
The Gladiator was launched as a successor of the Goggle-eyed Fazer 125 (Don’t mistake it with the current one, it’s a totally different scene!), back in 2006. On the looks front, it was quite a poser, with a big-bike stance giving it a silhouette of a 150cc motorcycle. And with the passage of time, with its re-incarnation as SS125, the addition of several attractive bits like alloy wheels, open-chain cover, tachometer and what not (Yamaha claims that it has brought 28 changes on the current version than the yesteryear model), which make it look appealing. Like the original Gladiator from which it originated, the Yamaha SS125 is a commuter type vehicle; and its design is very closely modelled on that of the previous incarnation. Its sporty, powerful character is emphasized by its newly added aerodynamic rear fender, lowered front cowl, machine-gun muffler end and smart chain cover. Its sleek body and metallic curves are quite eye-catching, enhanced by attractive-looking headlamps in the front and broader fuel tank gives it a distinctly tough and masculine looks.
