This bike is absolutely amazing. It's light and has a lot of power. This was my second bike and I loved it. Its really fast for a smaller bike.
Yamaha TT-R 125 vs. Honda XR(CRF) 100 RBy (I am an Owner) on Nov 22, 2010
Yamaha TT-R 125
This bike has an outrageous amount of power,I've hit 56 mph on it.
The choke is on the handle bar making it easyer to use.
The exhaust pipe is tighter to the frame shape ... and wrapes around to the left making it harder to burn your self plus it sounds awsome.
Handl...es on the back fenders make the bike easy to grip and move from the back.
The Yamaha is a cold blooded bike so it can take a wile to start(2-6 minutes).
Honda XR(CRF) 100 R
although not as powerful the TT-R the XR can still haul.
The XR starts promptly
The exhaust pipe wraps around the right, making the carb hard to remove.
Yamaha TT-R 125 vs.Honda XR(CRF) 100 R
The XR is a slightly tamer than the
TT-R which makes it a better starter bike,but even the newest rider could move up to the TT-R in a few days.
Although it is only 25cc larger than the XR the TT-R feels like it has much more power.
The starter on the XR has a pour two piece design that wares out quicker than the TT-R's one piece.
The Yamahas air filter is tool free vs. the Hondas which is buried under the seat and fenders
The TT-R is smaller in size than the XR (shorter and fatter) but feels larger.
Over all both of the bikes are good quality,the Honda is a better starter bike and the Yamaha is more powerful. If your buying one of these bikes used as a fix-er up-er the Yamaha is much easyer to work on than the Honda. In the end the TT-R is just a bit better than the XR,but both are vary good machines and neither is bad.
