They say that desperate times call for desperate measures. In country like Pakistan where modern and technologically advanced motorcycles are not common sight, the enthusiasts improvise. Many youngsters are seen increasing the performance of their regular motorcycles by performing different modifications. The motorcycle in question is Pakistan’s only Yamaha YBR125 which is in the league of its own. This is a Turbo Charged Yamaha YBR125 from Pakistan. Let’s look in detail.
