2012 Husqvarna TE125
The TE125 is the new four stroke 125 cc model from Husqvarna, aimed at young fans of the brand. It inherits a look that is particularly aggressive and appealing, reflecting the style of the bikes used in races by the official Husqvarna team.
THE NEW 125 cc FOUR STROKE ENDURO AND MOTARD MODELS FROM HUSQVARNA
The TE 125 and SMS 4 are the new four stroke 125 cc models from Husqvarna,
aimed at young fans of the brand:
The TE 125 for newcomers to enduro, SMS 4 for a touch of supermotard and
speed in urban traffic.
Both inherit a look that is particularly aggressive and appealing, reflecting
the style of the bikes used in races by the official Husqvarna team.
The chassis of the two new 4-stroke, 125cc models is a monobeam in Cr-Mo steel with a circular cross section and rear seat rail, also in steel.
The engine is single-cylinder, single camshaft, four stroke, rated 124.45
cc, 4 valves, 6 gears, liquid-cooled and with electric ignition.
The colours available are racing red for the TE and white for the SMS4. All
graphics are incorporated into the bodywork using the innovative in-mould
plastic decoration system.
The new 4T models have a greatly reduced weight, only 117 Kg, making them
particularly manageable and easy to handle in every situation.
With a maximum power of 11KW (15 HP), these new Husqvarna 125 cc models can
be driven by holders of a "B" driving licence.
2012 Husqvarna TE125 Features and Benefits
The single overhead camshaft (SOHC) 4-stroke, liquid-cooled 124.45 cc engine is the same for both versions, TE and SMS4. Cylinder bore and stroke length are 52 mm and 58.6 mm, with a compression ratio of 11.2:1.
Both versions have 6 gears, but with different final speed ratios for the
two models, to optimize performance in all conditions - urban traffic or dirt
The 125 cc engine ensures reduced emissions and consumption and is rated
EU3. It has a Keihin 29 mm carburettor and electric ignition.
The lubrication is wet sump with claw pump and cartridge filter.
To ensure optimum response and power adequate to requirements, the exhaust system has been specially designed for the two different versions.
The front suspension forks have a diameter of 40 mm and 260 mm of effective stroke. The rear suspension has a single shock absorber, with adjustable spring preload. Safety: the front brakes are floating calliper double piston with a disc diameter of 260 mm, the rear brakes are also floating calliper, with disc diameter 220 mm.
The frame of the new 4-stroke, 125cc model is a monobeam in Cr-Mo steel with a circular cross section and rear seat rail, also in steel. The new 4 stroke model has greatly reduced weight, only 117 Kg, making them particularly manageable and easy to handle in every situation.
The enduro has a 21" front wheel and 18" rear, just like the racing Husqvarnas.
Both of the new Husqvarna 4T models are obviously "miniature" big bikes. The attention to detail and excellent quality of construction in all mechanical parts ensure that these two "new entries" to the highly competitive 125 cc market are close in design and aesthetics to the bigger bikes made by the original Swedish manufacturer with over 100 years of experience.
In fact, with their chassis size and design values, the TE 125 and SMS4 could
easily pass for bikes driven by Antoine Meo and Adrien Chareyre.
Just like the Husqvarna professional racing bikes, the tank and seat have
been designed for maximum mobility and comfort: the driver can rapidly move
forwards or backwards to cope with different road conditions or driving techniques.
The position of the handlebars and the distance between seat and footrests
have also been designed to ensure driver comfort and improve overall handling
of the bike.
The front suspension forks have a diameter of 40 mm and 260 mm of effective stroke. The rear suspension has a single shock absorber, with adjustable spring preload.
Safety: the front brakes are floating calliper double piston with a disc
diameter of 260 mm, the rear brakes are also floating calliper, with disc
diameter 220 mm.
The wheels are made of light alloy, with 17 inch hubs in the motard version,
allowing use of a 140mm rear tyre which is perfectly adapted to the chassis
and gives the SMS4 the look of a big motorbike, with great performance on
The enduro has a 21" front wheel and 18" rear, just like the racing
The elegant instrument panel completes the series design of the new Husqvarna
four stroke models. The lcd display, in addition to the speedometer, can show
revolution counter, indicators, lights, odometer (total and partial), driving
time and clock.
