2012 Husqvarna WR125
HUSQVARNA WR 125 - The pleasure
of rediscovering lightweight enduro
For the younger rider, a bike that
has everything - performance and handling –
the result of infinite tests and trials over the course
of its career, often making it the standard of reference
for the 125 cc class. This bike is the natural choice
to rediscover lightweight enduro with the unmistakable
high rev sound of the WR125. Plus the advantage of
having the most affordable price in the Husqvarna
enduro racing range.
Thoroughly revamped in 2011 with a
new chassis the same as the motocross version, the
latest model shows off the styling of the new 2012
range. The new all black chassis has been modified
at the steering-head with 25CrMo4 chrome-moly steel
plates to improve strength and rigidity. The chassis
aesthetics reflect the improvements made to this models
mechanics and easy handling.
The bike also has the new 2012 graphics
and the same anodized silver Excel rims as the higher
cc versions. The standard issue is fitted with handguards
and control panel with digital display.
Better engine protection
They say "don't change a winning
formula", and the compact single cylinder engine
with exhaust valve, crank-case V-Force intake, Mikuni
TMX38 carburettor, and the new exhaust (introduced
in 2011), has been so successful that the combination
remains unchanged for the 2012 version. The design
team focused on reliability and the new WR125 now
has protection for the lower filter box.
Kayaba forks and brakes
The new WR125 retains the quality fittings
from the previous model, such as Kayaba 48 mm forks
with external adjustment for both compression and
rebound damping, Sachs rear monoshock with progressive
linkage and Brembo brakes with daisy wheel discs.
All have proved their worth and needed no modification.
