Definately not stock.
It looks like the 2009 white bike, with some panels from a red bike (centre strip), and then custom decals.
Although, it looks knda similar to the 2012 special edition colours...

Thats what I thought! Did any of the red bikes actually come with a red tank strip as stock? I sprayed mine along with hugger- I really do like the front of this bike. and the red side bits...

No, there were only three options for the 2009 models (I think!)

Red (Obvoisly the best coulour), Black (with black wheels, and white decals), and Blue (with silver wheels)

Red is by far the better looking their :angel3:

I guess it was from the white and red then
Yeah, I would say it was, but they have put Black tail plastics on too.

Does anyone know if there are any 2007 bikes out there?

I thought our bike only came into the UK in 2008, but when filling out an insurance comparison recently, I noticed that our bikes are now described as: Yamaha YZF R125, Sports, Petrol, Manual, 2007+

i've never seen a 57 plate bike, which makes me think that they came out after March here. as for colours, that is definitely not standard and there were definitely no white 2009 models.

Some of the 2008 models MAY be on a 57 plate, as they use that plate until February ish the following year don't they?

I think that's a pretty nice paintjob.
Very tastefully done!
I think I've pieced it together as mostly this bodywork from the 2011:

But also a few stickers from the 2010, and then the sides are custom.

I haven't actually seen any R125's on an 07 or 57 plate, ever. I don't even think they exist. Most sites list the R125 in the UK selling from 2008 to the present. I truly believe it officially went on sale in the UK in 2008.
