Chassis

Husqvarna SMR125

The front suspension forks have a diameter of 40 mm and 260 mm of effective stroke. The rear suspension has a single shock absorber, with adjustable spring preload. Safety: the front brakes are floating calliper double piston with a disc diameter of 260 mm, the rear brakes are also floating calliper, with disc diameter 220 mm.

Frame

The frame of the new 4-stroke, 125cc model is a monobeam in cr-mo steel with a circular cross section and rear seat rail, also in steel. The new 4 stroke model has greatly reduced weight, only 117 kg, making them particularly manageable and easy to handle in every situation.

Wheels

Husqvarna SMR125

The wheels are made of light alloy, with 17 inch hubs in the supermoto version, allowing use of a 140mm rear tyre which is perfectly adapted to the chassis and gives the smr125 the look of a big motorbike, with great performance in corners.

Verdict

The Husqvarna SMR125 has many fans. And there is no wonder why, as its 14 hp, single cylinder, four-stroke is a strong unit. The engine comes with perfect gearing and rewards you with a sharp acceleration of up to 70 mph.

In terms of ride quality, our only complain is the hard seat which will make you fill a bit uncomfortable after 50 miles. Apart from that, however, the chassis is perfectly tuned for off road riding. This bike can deal with anything you throw at it and it also knows how to tackle the tightest corners pretty damn well.

The brakes include top-spec components, so you can expect to a great stopping power.

Like any Husqvarna the SMR125 has a fairly good built quality. Its engine has proved to be reliable while all the plastics and components are held together well.
