2012 Husqvarna SMR125

The SMR125 is the new four stroke 125 cc model from Husqvarna, aimed at young fans of the brand: for a touch of supermoto and speed in urban traffic. It inherits a look that is particularly aggressive and appealing, reflecting the style of the bikes used in races by the official Husqvarna team.




2012 Husqvarna SMR125 Features and Benefits

The single overhead camshaft (SOHC) 4-stroke, liquid-cooled 124.45 cc engine is the same for both versions, TE and SMR125. Cylinder bore and stroke length are 52 mm and 58.6 mm, with a compression ratio of 11.2:1. 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.

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 wheels are made of light alloy, with 17 inch hubs in the supermoto version, allowing use of a 140mm rear tyre which is perfectly adapted to the chassis and gives the SMR125 the look of a big motorbike, with great performance in corners.
