The Husqvarna TC 125 has received a few upgrades for 2014. The most important is represented by the new bodywork that allows you a better control of the motorcycle. You also get a comfortable seat, tapered 827 Renthal Fatbar handlebars and comfy footpegs.
The motorcycle is powered by a 123.8 cc, 1-cylinder, 2-stroke, water-cooled unit with reed intake and exhaust control. The engine is paired with a 6 gear, claw shifted transmission and is brought to life by an electric starter.
The motorcycle has a modern chromium molybdenum frame that offers a perfect balance between torsional rigidity, longitudinal stiffness and lightness.
The stopping power is assured by a set of capable Brembo brakes, that come with a new master cylinder and floating calipers in combination with 260mm wave discs at the front and 220mm wave discs at the rear.

The TC 125 is ready to accompany young riders into racing at the highest level. Great ergonomics, an agile, yet stable chassis and a powerful engine equipped with power valve and a 6-speed gearbox form the basis for the champions of the future. Husqvarna has been competitive in 2-stroke Motocross over the decades and the TC 125 continues this tradition.
Tapered 827 Renthal Fatbar handlebars feature a Renthal bar pad and are mated with Husqvarna grips for excellent control of the bike.
Tightly wrapped around the engine and frame, Husqvarna’s new bodywork is designed to connect the rider’s body to the bike, for a perfect fit of man and machine, allowing for total control in all conditions for the most diverse body sizes.
Traditional Husqvarna white, blue and yellow adorns the newly designed Motocross range, enhancing the modern styling.
Great comfort and durability ensure optimal rider control even after many hours of use.
The design of the swingarm has been optimised according to the stiffness characteristics of the rest of the chassis. In order to give maximum rider confidence and comfort, while making the most of the Husqvarna engine characteristics in terms of traction and power, the aluminium swingarm has specific flex characteristics. The single-component casting process eliminates welding and guarantees consistent behaviour and quality. Strong but light, the beautifully styled aluminium cast swingarm provides perfect stability and safety.
The priority in designing the frame was to meet strict performance goals while maintaining optimal torsional rigidity, longitudinal stiffness and extreme lightness, while offering excellent feedback and instilling complete confidence in the rider. To achieve their goals, the engineers designed the lightweight chromium molybdenum frame with precise longitudinal flex that helps absorb impacts from the rear wheel, working together with the suspension for better comfort and giving the rider greater feedback. The torsional rigidity, on the other hand, has been optimised to enhance turn-in, sharp handling and stability even on the roughest terrain, giving the rider complete confidence in finding his lines and increasing his pace lap after lap.
Exceptional stopping power is guaranteed by the latest generation of Brembo brakes, featuring a new master cylinder and floating calipers in combination with 260mm wave discs at the front and 220mm wave discs at the rear. The perfectly placed controls allow for optimal feel and balance under extreme conditions.
For the first time in Husqvarna’s centennial history, the engineers designed a composite rear subframe united with a chromoly frame. The three-piece composite subframe, made of high strength polyamide with a precision injection moulded production process, has been designed to offer stiffness while flexing more than an aluminium subframe, complementing the flex characteristics of the frame in order to offer optimum rider feedback and feeling in all conditions. The lightweight design offers engineers unlimited opportunities in integrating features such as all the electronics and the airbox.
CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS
As on the other major components of the chassis, the CNC machined triple clamps have precisely engineered flex designed into them that allows the fork tubes to flex under stress. This gives the rider more feeling under braking and on landing off jumps. They are designed to evenly distribute the clamping force on the fork leg, maximizing contact area for optimal sensitivity and minimum friction. In addition, the handlebar can be mounted in 4 different positions.
WP suspension stands for top quality and offers the best performance levels. Adjustability is a key factor in tailoring a motorcycle according to varying requirements. With the WP forks, the ease of changing clicker settings is as simple as a twist of a dial, allowing all riders to adapt the rebound and compression damping settings to their own riding styles and track conditions. The 48mm closed cartridge front fork, matched with CNC machined black triple clamps, feature 300mm of travel and ensure exceptional handling and feel of the front end, thanks to accurate and consistent damping characteristics of the closed cartridge technology.
The high performance rear shock made by WP suspension is adjustable in rebound and high/low speed compression, and guarantees excellent comfort and world class damping. Combined with the white colour of the frame, the white spring gives the all-new Husqvarna Motocross bikes a striking appearance.
The Husqvarna DCC (Dual Compression Control) linkage system has excellent characteristics in fast and flowing sections. Due to its progressive characteristics it takes big hits in its stride, offering great rider comfort in all situations, even on the roughest track sections and the biggest jumps. The versatile Husqvarna DCC linkage system is sure to meet the need of riders of all levels, with a consistent, confidence-inspiring and light feeling chassis in every situation.
The high performance cylinder and power valve have been optimised for maximum throttle opening resulting in strong bottom-end torque and excellent top performance.
The compact 125cc 2-stroke engine features a sophisticated power valve for the highest performance throughout the entire rev range. A new generation of intake reed blocks has been carefully engineered along with Boyesen reeds for excellent response and durability, and optimal intake flow rates. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, allowing riders to compete at the highest level.
A lightweight 6-speed gearbox is fitted to the TC 125 to give maximum performance and precision, in order to take full advantage of the power characteristics of the 125cc engine. The hydraulic Magura clutch guarantees excellent modulation and clutch action, while the flex lever can rotate almost 90° in the event of a crash.
The Vertex piston’s material and piston rings have been optimised for power and reliability.
