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.

 

2012 Husqvarna WR125 Features and Benefits

The 2011 version of the WR125 has been further updated with technical modificationsderiving from Husqvarna’s experience in the European Motocross and Enduro championships.

The small WR125 has had the same technical changes as the motocross version 125cc: a newchassis, reinforced and redesigned beneath the cradle near the footrest lugs and new connection fittings to the cylinder head.

In terms of bodywork, apart from the 2011 graphic design, the WR125 has a new numberprotection system on the headlight, with a new mounting system and new handlebar guards.The engine also features a new muffler, and a new clutch housing.

The control panel has a new display, digital instead of the analogue one mounted on the previous WR model. The cooling system has a thermostat which monitors and optimizes the engine running temperature.

The front suspension features a new Kayaba 48mm fork. The wheels are new as are the new wave disc brakes.

2012 Husqvarna WR125 Press Release:

HUSQVARNA AT INTERMOT 2010

Husqvarna presents a radically redesigned Motocross and Enduro range at Intermot.
A total of 10 models, including 3 making their very first public appearance here at Cologne: the CR125, TC250 and WR125.

In addition to radical changes in mechanical design, there are new engine features including fuel injection for the TC250 version – track tested throughout the European motocross MX2 championship season, where Husqvarna was a leading protagonist.

Intermot is also the first chance the public will get to see and touch the new TE/TC 449/511 models. The basic concept behind the new 449/511 range is an innovative and attractive layout of the motorbike, enabling reduced overall weight, optimum centring of individual weights and an innovative chassis which meets the particular demands of off-road biking.

The central element of this new concept is the way the pinion is mounted coaxially in relation to the fork pin. This means there are no differences in chain tension as the rear suspension rides up and down, and the response to throttle changes is more immediate. This solution, called CTS (Coaxial Traction System), enables a significant improvement in traction, control of the bike and overall stability.

In the Motard and Dual-purpose sector, Husqvarna presents a range supplemented by two new 125cc four stroke models, joining the WRE and SMS two-strokes.

The Husqvarna 2011 range caters for all with the new mini CR50 and SM50 models, aimed at first off-road experiences for novice Husqvarna fans.
