The TMX 125 Alpha has a regular rectangular headlight which does add a bit of macho appeal. Same goes for the tail light. Stalk-mounted boxy indicator lights are present next to each of these. They might not look that great, but they do their job.
The rest of the bike follows the lead of the headlights design with the classic boxy fuel tank, thick, flat and long dual seat, and minimal bodywork. There are some chrome pieces like the exhaust cover and the chrome plated front and rear mudguard that look stylish while also staying durable. The instruments are housed in a boxy and rectangular compartment above the headlight. The wires are exposed but sorted out to stay out of the way of the rider.
The TMX125 Alpha’s 3 color variants - Candy Ruby Red, Spectrolite Blue Metallic, and Black – do add some much-needed flair. The bike is 1904 mm long, 745 mm wide, and 1026 mm high above the ground. There are 18-inch spoked wheels thicker spokes and with 2.50 40L front and 2.75 48P rear tires. The instrumentation is conventional and analogue. It does include a digital gear indicator and a tachometer. The practical aspects are well taken care of with a sidecar mounting collar on the frame under the fuel tank and a large carrier behind the seat for cargo carrying purposes.
