The Husaberg TE 125 is the youngest member of the Husaberg family and was built for up-and-coming 16 year-old racers and ambitious E1 riders.
The motorcycle is packed with various technologies and thanks to its lightweight and compact dimensions is fairly easy to maneuver.
The 2013 model has received a completely revamped seat and tank/spoiler profile which offers a perfect riding position and helps the rider to become one with the machine. We also need to send a shout at the 10.7 liters polyethylene fuel tank designed with enduro-friendly ergonomics.
The motorcycle sports a 1-cylinder 2-stroke, water-cooled engine with reed intake and exhaust control. The engine is combined with a kick starter and a six gears, claw shifted transmission. The transmission is paired with a compact clutch which features hub damping and preload with a single diaphragm spring.

The trail is hard, but not hard enough. Every obstacle, every climb, however steep, is no problem at all for the smallest offering from HUSABERG. The 2013 TE 125 is the perfect symbiosis of power and weight in the smallest displacement class. Quite simply, a really nimble enduro powerhouse.
The shock absorber has settings tuned individually to the new frame and each displacement, guaranteeing comfort and optimal suspension. Adjustable rebound damping and high and low-speed compression damping allow individual adaptation of the suspension to the terrain and rider.
Extremely precise application and excellent braking performance. That is exactly what you get from the BREMBO®brakes and lightweight wave brake discs of the HUSABERG TE 125.
Wheels with CNC-machined hubs, high-end DID rims and new aluminium spoke nipples. An unbeatable weight advantage for the 2013 HUSABERG TE 125.
Very finest enduro technology: the 48 mm 4CS closed-cartridge fork from WP SUSPENSION. This fork overcomes extremely rutted tracks and other such major obstacles with the greatest of ease. Developed in close collaboration with the factory team, the patented 4-chamber system (4CS) from WP provides a decisive advantage in terms of responsiveness and constant damping. Another benefit: servicing the fork is extremely easy.
Reed valve block
Reacts directly. Provides uniform power development and a longer service life. That’s the V-FORCE 3 reed valve block.
It may not be new, but it’s still very good. The KEIHIN flat-slide carburettor ensures direct power development and lets the bike’s performance come into its own.
The 125cc 2-stroke engine with exhaust control and 6-speed transmission is renowned for its high peak power and excellent rev range. In conjunction with the new chassis, this performance can be even better converted into traction in MY 2013, making the lightest 2-stroke enduro even more competitive. HUSABERG TE 125 – the perfect choice for enduro youngsters.
The perfect clutch delivers extremely precise application. This is achieved by means of a compact and extremely robust clutch featuring hub damping and preload with a single diaphragm spring instead of the several conical springs used previously. And to top it all: An additional 250 g of weight is saved thanks to the durable steel cage design.
Specially designed for enduro use. Ensures controllable rideability at the same time as top performance. The aluminium silencer is fitted perfectly to the rear fender by means of a strong plastic sleeve.
Enduro riding means becoming one with your bike. The completely revamped seat and tank/spoiler profile lets machine and rider fuse into one. However, the TE 125 not only excels with enduro-specific ergonomics, but also with such technical highlights as grip recesses well protected from dirt.
The polyethylene fuel tank with enduro-friendly ergonomics is the perfect point of contact with the bike on the 2013 TE models. 10.7 l capacity allows extended enduro tours to be completed comfortably.
Not only the technology, but also the equipment on the HUSABERG TE 125 leave nothing to be desired. Skid plate and hand guards are standard on all 2-stroke models of the 2013 model range, as is riding pleasure. But for those who want even more, there’s the Pure Tech accessory range.
There are two good arguments for the new air box: optimum protection from dirt and an adequate air supply to the engine. A separate intake snorkel has been developed for each displacement to optimise airflow, thereby ensuring maximum engine performance. The generously sized TWIN AIR filter is replaced conveniently in a matter of seconds via the air box side cover and with no tools at all, of course.
All supporting parts of the rear end of the TE 125 are made from high strength, injection-moulded plastic. The three elements are bolted together and link perfectly with the surrounding bodywork. The ribbing and toughness of the material allow the highest levels of stability to be achieved at a minimum weight for all the HUSABERG enduro models.
A perfectly balanced aluminium design: The swingarm is 300 g lighter and, with its higher side profiles, it boosts the frame and shock suspension system with targeted flexibility.
A newly developed double-cradle, central tube frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel profiles ensures high levels of torsional stiffness. Precise cornering characteristics and high tracking stability are the result of this design. Shocks originating from the rear wheel are absorbed even better thanks to reduced levels of lateral stiffness.
Meticulously finished triple clamps, machined from a solid block: Not only do they look classy in anodised black; they are also designed in such a way that they support the responsiveness and sliding behaviour of the new fork with their special shaping. The result? Even better handling of the 2013 HUSABERG TE 125.
