2010 Husqvarna WR125 – Test

There are pretty pickings in the 125cc two-… bike market right In fact, as much as Husqvarna is a smaller brand today, it is the to offer a machine like WR125, and that is a pretty sad You can shop around for a Gas Gas or maybe a TM. and obscure, they make a seem like a big brand.

And for a lot of Husqvarna is. Now owned by BMW and making a comeback, the German-owned, former now produced in Italy Husqvarnas are back up on the trails and at events all the US, especially where there is a dealer nearby.Husky’s introductory in displacement only, is the WR125.

Italian Stallion of a small-bore has roots back to the Cagiva in heritage and a motor that has been regarded as one of the best, you knew how to tune them. For the few years, even though has been deep in development of the small-displacement four-… engines, never stopped making improvements to the 125, and they stop racing it.

In fact, a few of riders stayed on the two-… for the E1 when the new four-… 250cc was to them. What does all mean? We rode the bike and tell you.First off, as far as starting goes, a 125-and one specifically-takes little more the weight of your foot to it run.

Sold without a arrestor and as a closed-course competition yet still very quiet to its longish muffler, you could this bike without a soul if you lug it. And for a 125, you can really lug bike. It has the bottom end torque of a KTM 150 and stalling better than any bike I remember. And it does not or act like it has an overly heavy either.

The standard jetting lets the run clean and crisp though we it with a slightly leaner position, especially above sea Also, we ran a conservative 32:1 ratio since we knew be running this bike most of the time and that up with residue at the muffler and end cap in constant slow going.Screaming the wide open on top, bike rips like any 125cc MX machine would.

the throttle pegged the bike is and pulling as strong as could be for an engine of this size, a tick off of a 250F. The WR actually one of our biggest baddest sand and can lay claim to being the first 125 to do that.But in all that engine there is the middle part of the and it can be bog city.

An early shift or a load on the bike when the isn’t open enough for it result in a bog the likes we have forgotten about. In fact Kramer (has ridden 125s than almost Ziegler (never ridden an 125) and Denison (had a which was a two-… 80cc in a 125cc chassis) all rode the and came back saying was something wrong with it. The bog or going into or through the was that bad.

With testing we confirmed that the definitely has two distinct places it likes to be ridden, the bottom and the Riding 125s on the track never experience this not even on this Husky. But on the this common trait of a two-… shows up, maybe too the power is either a deal and you go look for a four-… or you ride a 125 and a much better rider.

For with any time on this you’ll learn how to use a clutch to more power out of the engine or to it on the pipe. You’ll learn how to your way through a gear box and that there is a proper for everything. Luckily the Husky’s and shifting action are up to the task.The endearing aspect of any 125 is the light

Now, our scale didn’t the WR as a featherweight by any means since is the same chassis that is on its four-… brothers, so it is a bit beefier it most likely needs to be. But you are on the bike and putting it through its there are few bikes out there feel this light. orange ones with of an effect on the scale.

The bike has a tall feel to it and is roomy for any sized rider. The springs to err on the stiff side of the scale for a but faster riders will this. And the whole bike has a feeling built into it, just enough Italian to make it ….Overall the ride is than you’d expect a trail bike but it is not nearly MX

It holds itself up in the … and the bike has a light weight compared to the four-strokes we have used too, it can also like it dances around a But it doesn’t deflect and the suspension is set up enough to take on faster racing as well as some MX if Once you start getting the broken in the suspension softens up a The whole time you get great out of the … and it only bottoms you really slam it.

Don’t be too that the name brands of the are not what you may be used to. The Sachs and Marzocchi fork get the job done and all of the same adjustments as any of the other out there. In fact this may be the working off-road Husky in the department that we have

It would be tough competition for in the class, if there were

The handling of the Husky is, as has been on all of our Huskys, a real high of the bike. The turning is right with the best of them, and from a steel frame. The always keeps a light but it is really stable, too. The end tracks well and the rider like they can turn and confidently.

And since the bike is and narrow where it needs to be you can get all this machine to amplify you really want it to do.As a equipped off-road bike for a spark arrestor (we slipped an FMF Core 2 (www.fmfracing.com ) on ours to it legal for the trails) the Husky has lights and some pretty switchgear and wires on the chassis if you bigger plans for your The transmission feels like a ratio box.

The gaps are to make the changes and spread off-road but you can still get around an MX quickly. The brakes are plenty and have good feel floating rotors. The kickstand has an returning spring when the is stood straight up, but with a you can modify the kickstand to keep it when the load comes off of it.

And one of the pluses to the WR is how easy it is to work on. The air is simple and takes no tools, and the tank off requires minimal though you can change jetting removing it. Enduro goodies a speedo-odo and axel-pull handles are complaints list is pretty aside from wishing wasn’t such a dramatic bog in the

The gas tank is small and we did run it onto in 21-miles one time, so fuel should be looked after. are aftermarket tanks available, but you not find the typical aftermarket you’d get from a more brand. Nevertheless, there are dedicated companies that can you tune.

Handguards are always too!Personally I feel that growing up while skipping out on the 125 is a loss. The learning they do on a like this comes about the time they are to understand the physics and mechanics of their body and their A bigger bike can mask a lot of error and tends to amplify at the same time.

Though may not be much of a 125cc class, it hurt that there are 125s out there. They are fun learning tools and they a proficient rider feel a hero. Plus Husky has had insane deals going on.

And if you are out trail riding and looking for a and different ride, the WR125 can be all With this Husky you are not anything in the suspension and handling and the motor will just you to work harder for it. Specifications: Husqvarna WR125

6’1″/205 lb./Senior B riderEven I have ridden a converted two-… motocrosser off-road it has been a long time I rode a dedicated 125 off-road Probably because there many left. The last one was a KTM in but I have ridden a lot of the former 125s. For sure the latest WR125 is far more civilized the older ones ever The handling and ergonomics are hugely and so is the detailing of the bike.

This may be my favorite production bike seat. The suspension is very fine as well. carburetion, clutch action, tug and high rpm pull are all great, but happened in the middle?

I know this engine is behind a KTM and I remember the older Husky and engines being better. I’m there is a simple fix, but will we find a Husky 125 in the U.S. As a bike aimed as a stone to more powerful the seat height is tall.

this is a solid package if we can the mid. Jesse Ziegler

175 Vet IntermediateRiding the WR125 is an enlightening around every corner something to take in. First is the snap of the two-smoke motor. nothing like a crisp to make you feel like a kid

Combine that with a quality feel and your impression is going to be extremely The bike starts easily and idles on its own. Click it first and start off and you’ll be met a low-rpm murmur that to stall.

It lugs extremely in the low end in any gear, creeping along at a reluctant-to-accelerate pace. Here you it stole something from four-… trail bike and its traction-hungry torque while up speed. But, it doesn’t. It goes one speed when If you want to go faster, kick the lever back with left digits and give the a wiggle.

From here the WR its small attitude problem. It can muscle through the transition hum to rev or it can tighten up and bog. A solution? it like a 125. Grab

Cover clutch. Use momentum. And this Husky comes on the hold on because the top end is what are all about-Weeeeeeeeee! Chris Denison

5’10″/ 155 lbs./ IntermediateI two-strokes, and this little is no exception. Granted, you have to a Husky a bit differently than any of the Austranese models, but if you can throw a leg a bike like the WR125 and it with an open mind, bound to have fun. As for machine’s motor, the power amazing but you can actually lug the bike the tight stuff with effort.

The hit was a little inconsistent-it like to me like the power was wired open-but after a I at least knew it was going to Up top, the bike will like any 125, though so seat time on a four-… has made my speed-shifting a lot rustier it used to be. The fork and shock feel soft on the WR125, I appreciated the plushness on slower

To me, the whole bike feels length-wise, so it was easy to dice narrow trees and tight where the low center of gravity the Husky stay hooked up. it’s not orange, blue, yellow or green and the powerband as strong all the way through as some 125cc machines, but for what it is the is a kick to play on.
