The DT models mount a reliable air-cooled single-cylinder engine on a lightweight body that handles with sharpness and agility.
It’s a combination that gives plenty of usable torque, a strong acceleration feeling and light, responsive handling. The DT125 and 175 are designed and engineered to provide a high-level balance of performance in the basics of running, turning and stopping.
The DT models have long been reliable partners in people’s lives, serving vital roles in transport and logistics and as tough workhorses in industries like dairy farming.
The reliability of these machines is already legendary, and Yamaha makes sure that won’t change.
