2015 Husqvarna TC125 Review
2015 Husqvarna TC125 on Totalmotorcycle.com
Start from the top…
It’s easy to see why the TC 125 is such a big hit, with its lightweight chassis and a 125cc engine equipped with power valve, hydraulic clutch and a 6-speed gearbox, this little 2-stroke pumps out nearly 40 hp and holds the record for thrills per minute. Husqvarna has been competitive in 2-stroke Motocross over the decades and the TC 125 continues this tradition.
2015 Husqvarna TC125 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The Vertex piston’s material and piston rings have been optimised for power and reliability.
The compact 125cc 2-stroke engine features a sophisticated power valve for maximum performance across the entire rev range, new generation reed blocks with Boyesen reeds for excellent response and durability, and optimal intake flow rates. For MY15, a new ignition curve increases safety against detonation.
The high performance cylinder and power valve have been optimised for maximum throttle opening resulting in strong bottom-end torque and excellent top performance.
Exceptional stopping power is guaranteed by the latest generation Brembo brakes, featuring floating calipers in combination with 260mm wave discs at the front and 220mm wave discs at the rear. The perfectly placed controls allow for optimal feel and balance under extreme conditions.
The engineers in Research and Development had clear objectives in terms of torsional rigidity, longitudinal stiffness and weight. The goal was to give the rider optimal feedback and complete confidence in every situation. This was achieved by designing the lightweight chromium molybdenum frame with precise longitudinal flex that helps absorb impacts from the rear wheel, working together with the suspension for better comfort and greater feedback. The torsional rigidity enhances turn-in, sharp handling and stability even on the roughest terrain, giving the rider complete confidence in finding his lines and increasing his pace lap after lap. WP Performance Systems produces every frame to exacting standards in an ultra-advanced production plant. The production process involves hydro-forming and robot welding for maximum precision and consistent quality that is reflected in the supreme performance of every Husqvarna motorcycle.
The lightweight polyamide rear subframe has been reinforced with an additional screw on the airbox side that improves the fitment between the left subframe arm and the airbox. The improved seal guarantees better performance and durability. The three-piece composite subframe, made of high strength polyamide with a precision injection moulded production process, has been designed to offer stiffness while flexing more than an aluminium subframe, complementing the flex characteristics of the frame in order to offer optimum rider feedback and feeling in all conditions. The lightweight design offers engineers unlimited opportunities in integrating features such as all the electronics and the airbox.
The single component construction of the aluminium swingarm eliminates welding, providing more reliability, stability and safety, as well as superior quality and consistent behaviour over time compared to other construction processes. The specific flex engineered into the swingarm makes the most of the Husqvarna engine characteristics in terms of traction and power.
The lightweight wheels are complemented by new Dunlop MX52 Motocross tyres that feature a new “block-within-a-block” design for more progressive cornering. The new Dunlop rubber has been developed to offer superior grip in a wider variety of terrain.
WP has developed a closed cartridge 4CS fork specifically for Motocross. The new four chamber fork has improved damping characteristics and is also lighter than the previous closed cartridge fork. As with all 4CS forks by WP, the clicker settings can be easily and quickly adjusted via the dials on the top of the fork tubes. The red dial on the right alters rebound damping, while the white dial on the left is for compression damping. WP suspension stands for top quality and offers the best performance levels. Precision engineering, quality materials and advanced production processes are an integral part of the WP forks on the Husqvarna model range.
The high performance Husqvarna DCC (Dual Compression Control) rear shock made by WP has a revised setup and has been re-valved to match the geometry changes of the new rear link. The new shock features a 4mm increase in stroke thanks to the new link geometry, for better handling and damping characteristics.
The rear link has been revised and now features a higher starting rate, and therefore a less progressive curve, that provides better control in all circumstances. Further advancements in production processes have seen an improvement in quality and a reduction in weight of the triangle and pull rod of approximately 40g.
22MM FRONT AXLE
In the overall optimisation of the chassis, the MY15 Motocross bikes feature a new 22mm front axle with specific fork shoes in place of the previous 26mm axle. The new axle is lighter, and the shoes have shorter offset and increased trail, for more stability and better front-end feel.
Traditional Husqvarna white, blue and yellow adorns the newly designed Motocross range, enhancing the modern styling.
Tightly wrapped around the engine and frame, Husqvarna’s bodywork is designed to connect the rider’s body to the bike, for a perfect fit of man and machine, allowing for total control in all conditions for the most diverse body sizes.
HANDLEBAR AND HANDGUARDS
New Neken handlebar, with the same bend as the previous model year, with Husqvarna bar pad mated to Husqvarna grips for excellent control of the bike. Handguards are standard across the range and now feature better impact resistance thanks to a new compound.
The seat features a new seat cover material that improves grip and durability. The sturdy material is also harder than the previous cover, making the entire seat firmer, improving comfort and feeling.
