2012 Husqvarna SMS125
The SMS 125 has become an icon among
young first time bikers, a commercial hit and a new
fashion must. It is the starting point for those who
want to savour the thrills of an offroad style bike,
but is also ideal for everyday commuting in town.
Easy to ride, light and easily handled, the 2011 version
of the SMS 125 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

The black and white version has also In-Mould Decoration.
The bike is fitted with new handlebar guards.

hubs make the 2-stroke look more like its 4-stroke
big brother. The tried and tested 125cc engine has
been refined and brought up to date with improvements

pick-up and power at low to medium revs.
The SMS 125 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 the
2-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 the 125cc 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.
The rear light is LED and there is
a new registration plate holder. The front light housing
has also been redesigned and the headlight has a more
