After Husqvarna stated to be part of the BMW Group, the company’s motorcycles received a boost of new technologies which help them rise even higher in the motorcycle’s food chain.
Perhaps it goes without saying that the Husqvarna CR65 has also received a lot of attention from BMW’s technicians, and now has everything it needs to be considered one of the most capable compact off roaders in its class.
The Husqvarna CR 65 is propelled by a lightweight 64.90 cc which is perfect for those who are starting to learn how to ride a powerful motorcycle. The single cylinder unit is water cooled, has two radiators and a large Mikuni 24 mm carburetor. Power is sent to the rear wheel though a 6 speed gearbox combined with a clutch with hydraulic command, for more sensitivity and less strain on the rider.

The 2012 Husqvarna CR125 has received a series of upgrades for 2012 which help it remain ahead of the pack.
The most significant upgrade is the new single cylinder two-stroke engine which is technically an updated version of the old one. The new unit features Mikuni TMX38 carburettor, V-Force reed valve, the same clutch bell-housing as the 4-stroke TC250, ultra-light exhaust and silencer and better protection of the filter box underside.
The engine is mounted on a semi-perimeter frame made of chrome-molybdenum steel tubing. The frame features a black paint job which gives the entire motorcycle a pretty aggressive stance. What’s more interesting however, is the fact that the frame has now reinforcement plates at the steering-head area.
As far as suspensions go, the 2012 Husqvarna CR125 comes with a 48 mm Kayaba fork, hydraulically adjustable for both rebound and compression damping, and a rear Sachs monoshock.
