Husqvarna CR 125



Designed for riders who have never a full-size dirt bike the Husqvarna CR 125 was already a great and now that he has stepped up, there’s to stop it from becoming a desired motorbike.

Engine consist into a completely new featuring five transfer for better grunt at any rpm range, and exhaust ports, as well as to the valves for better sealing. up to its bigger four-… relatives, the CR 125 enters the scene being with 45mm Marzocchi and Sacks shock absorber.

First introduced in 2002 as smallest motocross bike, the CR 125 was not so far from the product that reviewing today. Of course, the combination was Blue and Yellow, but the part is the one that launched it The engine was a carbureted 124.8cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder unit came to life with the of a kick starter.

Gearbox six speeds. The rear brake was only 220mm in diameter and were no fancy Marzocchi or suspensions on it. The bike was indeed (only 197.3 pounds) and the gas was bigger (2.25 gallons), so the issue was sorted out from the

2004 model year bring anything, but the red/yellow/blue scheme.

For 2005, the colors yet again different (only and blue), but the bike came with a C.D.I. electronic, adjustable advance, and so becoming an piece of engineering.

2006 as the year of changes for the CR 125 as the bike with a radical new styling, by the red and white color scheme. The gas and side panels were of the Husky four-… bikes, and was the whole idea. This is the year when the 38mm TMX carburetor was introduced, as well as the multiplate clutch.

More performance always requires to better deal with the new and in 2006 Husqvarna did it with the of the new Marzocchi forks, Ohlins shock and a 240mm rear brake.

Getting closer and to the actual product that us today, is the 2007 version came with a modified and combustion chamber, modified to engine inertia and increase The exhaust system was completely in order to be suitable for the addition of the V three-reed valve. Of course, was the main goal and that is the maker achieved.


The closest thing find to the subject of this is the KTM 125 SX. This bike combines, like the Husky, lightness agility and manages to be one of the favorite bikes that don’t from Japan. Don’t get me the CR 125 can be easily compared with any of the competitors (Honda CR125R, YZ125, Suzuki RM125), but its and fierce opponent is coming Austria.

Fitted with a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, two-… with power valve, and being mated to a six-speed the KTM 125 SX manages to give the Husqvarna CR 125 a hard time.

A bit lighter lbs), the KTM looks like a good choice, but when a customer reads about the brakes which equip the CR 125 it to go with the second option, the Orange motocrosser in hand of who can only go with KTM.

for $5,498, the KTM 125 SX doesn’t lose when it comes to its price, even more suitable for off-road battle.


I describe the new Husky as being styled, well putted and attractive, but it is also very and that beats them all by The knitted front number gives a first clue of you’ll experience in its saddle, as as the high mounted white

A combination of Red, White, and this motocrosser looks its going to power you to the highest of success, because, as you will see on this review, the mechanics are as as the looks.

The red side panels are and narrow, showing that the intended to individualize its racer on the and it not only succeeds with but with the black rims, fork, number plate, seat and gas tank.


Impressive work has done with this model it stands as a true representation of how dirt bikes really powerful and torquey.

Kick it and hit first gear and you’re in for one ride down the motocross the environment for which it was built. I got a feel of the CR 125 and I must say that the improvements are definitely noticeable. The is more tractable and feels never ending, although it is a 125cc powerplant.

It is perfectly for fast take offs in or second gear, and the engine high so that the solution to a challenge would be a twisted Even with the 170 pound of on its back, the Husky proved it can gain speed and prepare for the jumps waiting up front.

Easy to maneuver and versatile, the can be leaded on the perfect trace of the with great ease and a rider would easily more and more points as its around the track significantly It is all a matter of getting used to the results are suitable for a closed competition, but usually, the kind of that finds its way on it will well at home considering the that the beginner’s bikes on he “made its hand” are all two-smokers.

I a very light and powerful and the fun possibilities on such models are ending. The Husky made no It performs excellent on the bumps and corners are its middle name. And it is all due to the forks and Sachs rear equipment which never ever since it can be found on model.

I even dared to it on the rocks for a couple of hours and I noticed that the fork’s resistance is very good the rear end feels well in But that was just a second because the landings on the motocross had already shown what a tuned bike I was riding.

Also off the road, I managed to see the six-speed gearbox is capable of, its final gear. It has the great of maintaining the strong pull on top of the fifth gear of a gearbox to such a small engine, feel a little weak. Not in case; the power is there to be and the sixth gear also to a higher top speed (always a thing when it comes to bikes of any kind).

What I appreciate at this bike from the impressive engine made me feel like I was in my childhood riding the noise that put the first bricks on the of my riding days) is the braking BREMBO systems are fitted on the models and feature 260mm and 240mm rear disc on which the two, respective one calipers action.

Grab a of the brake lever and you will the need to take it ease the grippy Pirelli tire guarantee a muddy face. it even matter considering the fun have riding the thing? I think so!


It is cheaper its competition, but not by far. Marketed for a retail price of $5,399 $100 less than the KTM 125 the Husky CR 125 definitely makes a impression, considering the fact this year, its bag of goodies perfectly to where this plan on taking this


On the podium, that is! It is easy to underestimate a Husky at a impression, but if you carefully read the page and, even swing a leg over one you will think the same again not about this model, but all the other bikes in the respective
