2012 Husqvarna SMS125

The SMS125 has become an icon for sixteen-year-olds, a sales phenomenon and a new fashion. It is the starting point for those who want to feel the thrills of an off road style bike, but is also ideal for everyday commuting in town. Easy to ride, light and easily handled, the 2011 version of the SMS125 has what it takes to confirm its status as category leader. The bike is available in two colour schemes. The red and white colour scheme shared by all Husqvarna off road models is now enhanced by the addition of bodywork graphics using “In?Mould Decoration”, integrated to the plastic itself. The black and white version also has In-Mould Decoration. The bike is fitted with new handlebar guards.




2012 Husqvarna SMS125 Features and Benefits

The SMS125 comes with the ECS electronic carburetion system, an integrated system for electronic control of the fuel mix (both air/petrol and petrol/oil), developed in collaboration with Dell’Orto. The unit also controls the ignition system. This enables the2-stroke SMS 125 to meet Euro 3 requirements, contains costs, boosts commercial competitiveness and maintains all the advantages typical of 2-stroke engines: lightness, performance and low running costs. The new exhaust and silencer is derived from the125cc racing CR/WR.

The suspension now features new Marzocchi front forks, specially developed for this model, further enhanced by the Sachs shock absorber with new calibration allowing greater flexibility and support.
