To complement the rugged chassis and long-travel suspension systems, the TT-R125LWE is equipped with a 19-inch diameter front wheel and a 16-inch diameter rear wheel. Their large diameter gives greater ground clearance, and enables the TT-R125LWE to handle uneven off-road surfaces for a more enjoyable ride.

To handle the TT-R125LWE's perky performance, the bike has an efficient 220 mm diameter front disc brake that allows the rider to reduce speed with minimum effort.
