The engine of the XE 125 Enduro is a single-cylinder 2-stroke liquid-cooled Yamaha 125cc that compared to the cross-version has a head with dedicated geometry which allows a lower compression ratio (cross-version: 8.6 ~ 10.7: 1 – enduro version: 7.4 ~ 8.8: 1).

This great low-end punch ensures that the traction is always excellent, with no dips or peaks in power which are more difficult to manage.
