Verdict

The upgrades made to the 2013 model aimed the style and comfort departments so there aren’t any significant technical upgrades.

But this isn’t as bad as it sounds, because the Husqvarna WE125 has always been a potent motorcycle. Its strongest point however remains the handling which continues to impress us in every aspect despite its relatively old-tech steel frame.

On the track, the bike feels incredibly stable and its narrow design helps you maneuver it with confidence.

The Brembo brakes are fairly strong too and have a good feel, so you won’t be disappointed by them in any situation.

In the end, the WE125 remains a great tool for learning and thanks to the Husqvarna DNA you won’t have to worry about its reliability.
