The TY models define the range of trial bikes of the Japanese manufacturer Yamaha, the acronym TY meaning Yamaha Trial. They were developed by French triathlete Christian Rayer in 1971 and then by British driver Mick Andrews, winner of two world titles in 1971 and 1972.
The Yamaha TY have been produced in various cylinder capacity: 50, 80, 125, 175, 250 and 350 cm³.
Although the first model TY was sold at 250 cc (end of 1973), the most famous remains in France the 125 cc model which has democratized the practice of trials and aroused many vocations among aspiring trialists. It is notably on this bike of initiation that began the French Thierry Michaud, who will later become triple champion of the world of trial.
Presented at the Motorcycle Show in Paris at the end of 1974, this TY 125, sold at less than 5,000 francs, will achieve record sales in this category. From 1975 to 1991, there were nearly 24,500 copies of 125 TY in France, 6,372 models for the year 1976 alone.
Two types of Yamaha 125 TY have been produced throughout its 16-year career:
- TY 125 type 541 (1975 to 1976)
- TY 125 type 1K6 (1976-1991)
The first model 541 is easily identifiable with its small diameter cylindrical exhaust silencer as well as its polished aluminum engine housings.
The silencer will become larger on the next 1K6 model, and the engine crankcases will adopt satin black.
The technical developments of the TY 125 were extremely minimal from 1975 to 1991, with this visible modification of the exhaust to meet the approval standards, but also on the intake and carburation settings. It is therefore more to the aesthetic details (tank decoration, color of the saddle, exhaust grille, engine ...) that we identify the vintage of a TY 125.
This is a 1/8 Heller plastic kit to build a Yamaha TY 125 trial bike.
