05 YZ 125 vs 03 - worth an extra $800?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at two bikes today. An 03 125 and an 05. Seller is offering the 05 for $800 over the price of the 03.

I will ride both but just wanted some opinions on whether the newer bike is worth the premium.

Both are in great shape, but the 03 is obviously a little more worn than the 05.

If the 03 is more worn then you have to get the 05.

Just purchased the 05 for $2400. I think that's a fair price for a bike with less than 10 hours on it!

Now for the good stuff. I can't beleive how friggin fast the thing is! I think I'm going to like this.

no need to mod that '05 blue bike, mate... sell it as fast as you can, then get the '06 YZ125 (see procycle for only US$2900)....

having had the opportunity to test different yammie dirt bikes (i have a dealer friend), the '06 YZ125 is absolutely way better than the '05; name it engine and suspension-wise :thumbsup:

go for it!... :ride:
