2012 Husqvarna TE125
HUSQVARNA TE 125 AND SMS4
THE NEW 125 cc FOUR STROKE
ENDURO AND MOTARD MODELS FROM HUSQVARNA
The TE 125 and SMS 4 are the new four
stroke 125 cc models from Husqvarna, aimed at young
fans of the brand: the TE 125 for newcomers to enduro,
SMS 4 for a touch of supermotard and speed in urban
Both inherit a look that is particularly
aggressive and appealing, reflecting the style of
the bikes used in races by the official Husqvarna
The chassis of the two new 4-stroke,
125cc models is a monobeam in Cr-Mo steel with a circular
cross section and rear seat rail, also in steel.
The engine is single-cylinder, single
camshaft, four stroke, rated 124.45 cc, 4 valves,
6 gears, liquid-cooled and with electric ignition.
The colours available are racing red
for the TE and white for the SMS4. All graphics are
incorporated into the bodywork using the innovative
in-mould plastic decoration system.
The new 4T models have a greatly reduced
weight, only 117 Kg, making them particularly manageable
and easy to handle in every situation.
With a maximum power of 11KW (15 HP),
these new Husqvarna 125 cc models can be driven by
holders of a "B" driving licence.
The new Husqvarna TE 125 and SMS4 will
be available from Husqvarna dealerships from early
The single overhead camshaft (SOHC)
4-stroke, liquid-cooled 124.45 cc engine is the same
for both versions, TE and SMS4. Cylinder bore and
stroke length are 52 mm and 58.6 mm, with a compression
ratio of 11.2:1.
Both versions have 6 gears, but with
different final speed ratios for the two models, to
optimize performance in all conditions - urban traffic
or dirt track.
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.
To ensure optimum response and power
adequate to requirements, the exhaust system has been
specially designed for the two different versions.
Both of the new Husqvarna 4T models
are obviously "miniature" big bikes. The
attention to detail and excellent quality of construction
in all mechanical parts ensure that these two "new
entries" to the highly competitive 125 cc market
are close in design and aesthetics to the bigger bikes
made by the original Swedish manufacturer with over
100 years of experience.
In fact, with their chassis size and
design values, the TE 125 and SMS4 could easily pass
for bikes driven by Antoine Meo and Adrien Chareyre.
Just like the Husqvarna professional
racing bikes, the tank and seat have been designed
for maximum mobility and comfort: the driver can rapidly
move forwards or backwards to cope with different
road conditions or driving techniques.
The position of the handlebars and
the distance between seat and footrests have also
been designed to ensure driver comfort and improve
overall handling of the bike.
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
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 wheels are made of light alloy,
with 17 inch hubs in the motard version, allowing
use of a 140mm rear tyre which is perfectly adapted
to the chassis and gives the SMS4 the look of a big
motorbike, with great performance on bends.
The enduro has a 21" front wheel
and 18" rear, just like the racing Husqvarnas.
The elegant instrument panel completes
the series design of the new Husqvarna four stroke
models. The lcd display, in addition to the speedometer,
can show revolution counter, indicators, lights, odometer
(total and partial), driving time and clock.
