What motorcycle is this?

I saw this little Yamaha in Istanbul last year. I like how simple and stripped down it is. The seat has a hand sewn cover. I can make a guess, but I thought I'd leave the ID up to the pros. Which model is this?

I think neither of the above is right,..... this bike looks like it's a single cylinder, water cooled two stroke. Probably about a 125cc, maybe as big as a 175cc. Maybe one of those Chinese bikes with all the plastic removed. Oh, sorry, I thought those were guesses.

Some of it looks like a Yamaha DT 125. It is a Yamaha engine.
