2012 Husqvarna WR125 Review

WR125 - HUSQVARNA. The WR 125 is the motorbike of choice of many young riders wanting to make a start in enduro.

Light, powerful, manoeuvrable and stable, the WR 125 is a firm favourite having won countless national championship events and in effect becoming the point of reference in its category. Husqvarna has always had a strong championship presence in the small two-stroke 125cc Enduro and Motocross sector, models which since their entry to the market in 1988 have become a technical benchmark for the category.

Husqvarna’s mighty eighth-liter screamer is back for 2012! Best of all, it comes with a free 144cc top end rebuild kit complete with cylinder and piston. The WR125 cross-country two-stroke also receives the reinforced all-black chromoly frame and new exhaust (introduced in 2011) along with updated IPD graphics and silver Excel rims.

For young riders it is a necessity and also the natural choice for those who want to rediscover the joy of lightness and the unmistakable high rev sound of a WR125. A bike that has everything - performance and handling ? the result of infinite tests and trials over the course of its career, often making it the standard of reference for the 125 cc class. And the significant advantage of having the most affordable price in the Husqvarna enduro racing range.

 

 

2012 Husqvarna WR125 Features and Benefits

Frame and graphics
Thoroughly revamped in 2011 with a new chassis the same as the motocross version, the latest model sports the styling of the new 2012 range. An all black chassis, the aesthetic way to reflect the improvements made to its mechanics and ease of handling. The new black chassis has been modified at the steering-head with 25CrMo4 chrome-moly steel plates to improve strength and rigidity.

The bike also has the new 2012 graphics and the same anodized silver Excel hubs as the higher cc versions. The standard issue is fitted with handguards and control panel with digital display.

Better engine protection
They say "don't change a winning formula", and the compact single cylinder engine with exhaust valve, crank-case V-Force intake, Mikuni TMX38 carburettor, and the new exhaust (introduced in 2011), has been so successful that the combination remains unchanged for the 2012 version. The design team focused on reliability and the new WR125 now has protection for the lower filter box.

Kayaba forks and brakes
The new WR125 retains fittings adopted on the previous model. Kayaba 48 mm forks with external hydraulic adjustment for both compression and rebound and Sachs rear monoshock, with progressive linkage and Brembo brakes with daisy wheel discs Braking all have proved their worth and needed no modification.
