2015 Husqvarna TE 125
With its nimble chassis, great ergonomics and potent engine the 2015 Husqvarna TE 125 is ready to conquer any terrain.
Talking about the engine, the Husqvarna TE 125 is fitted with a 124.8 cc, 1-cylinder 2-stroke, water-cooled unit with reed intake and exhaust control. It is brought to life by a kick starter and is mated on a 6 gear, claw shifted transmission with wet multi-disc clutch.
The unit is housed by a central tube frame made of chrome molybdenum steel tubing which sits on WP suspension Up Side down 4CS forks and rear WP Monoshocks with linkage.
The bike’s speed is kept under control by all-round disc brakes with two-pot crake calipers at the front and one-pot brake calipers at the rear.
Other notable features include CNC machined triple clamps, handguards and a new headlamp.

Where The Fun Begins
The TE 125 packs serious thrills in a nimble chassis, perfectly matched to a small but powerful 2-stroke engine that delivers top-level performance. Lightning fast manoeuvrability, class-leading brakes, a precise gearbox and a smooth hydraulic clutch provide the tools to conquer any terrain in any condition.
2015 Husqvarna TE 125 Key Features:
The TE 125’s high performance 125cc 2-stroke engine features a sophisticated power valve that optimises power delivery across the entire rev range. Boyesen reeds guarantee excellent response, durability and intake flow rates. For MY15 a smoother power delivery has been achieved thanks to a revised carburettor setting.
The high performance cylinder and power valve are designed to deliver strong bottom-end torque and high peak power at maximum throttle opening. The Vertex piston’s material and piston rings have been designed for power and reliability.
Excellent clutch modulation, low maintenance and consistent behaviour are guaranteed by the hydraulic Magura clutch. The clutch lever reduces the risk of breakage by rotating almost 90° in the event of a crash.
The ratios of the lightweight 6-speed gearbox have been optimised for Enduro use. The precise shifting action allows riders to accurately maintain the TE 125 in the ideal power range of the engine.
The strong and light chromoly frame is an exceptional partner for the small 2-stroke engine, and works in perfect harmony with the other jewels in the Husqvarna chassis. Although the overall frame design is the same on all the Enduro models, each model has slight variations in geometry and stiffness in key areas in order to tailor the behaviour of the bike to the varying engine characteristics and outputs. The engineers designed the frame with precise longitudinal flex that helps absorb impacts from the rear wheel, working together with the suspension and giving the rider greater feedback. The torsional rigidity has been calibrated to maximise sharp handling, and thus magnifying the intrinsic characteristics of two-stroke motorcycles.
The lightweight, three-piece polyamide rear subframe has been reinforced with an additional screw on the airbox side that improves the fitment between the left subframe arm and the airbox. The improved seal guarantees better performance and durability. The polyamide subframe is more flexible than a traditional aluminium rear subframe. Combined with the longitudinal flex of the frame and the rear linkage system, this gives riders a more comfortable and confidence-inspiring feeling on the bike, allowing them to push the limits in every condition and on any terrain. The inherent characteristics of the composite subframe allow the engineers to have unlimited opportunities of integrating features such as the airbox, electronics and rear grab handle.
Putting 2-stroke power to the ground can be tricky in certain conditions, so the engineers developed a single-piece cast swingarm that optmises traction even on the most difficult Enduro terrain. The flex characteristics feed precise information to the rider, instilling confidence and improving overall performance. Strong but light, the beautifully styled aluminium cast swingarm provides perfect stability and safety.
The Black DID rims shod with Michelin Enduro Competition tyres are kept firmly under control thanks to maximum feeling in extreme situations combined with amazing stopping power of the latest generation of Brembo brakes. Ergonomically perfect controls allow the rider to accurately gauge braking power to the 260mm and 220mm wave discs at the front and rear respectively.
Lightning Fast Handling:
When you think 2-stroke, you think "lightning fast handling"! The WP suspension components have been developed with exactly the same thought. The 48mm WP 4CS front fork employs 4 chamber technology that reduces weight compared to a typical closed cartridge fork, while maintaining the same performance levels. It provides a decisive advantage in terms of responsiveness, constant damping precision and handling, that perfectly matches the mind blowing agility of a 2-stroke Enduro bike. Additionally, the 4CS fork is completely adjustable to different terrain and conditions by simply twisting the dials on the top of the forks for rebound and compression damping settings.
The high performance DCC (Dual Compression Control) rear shock by WP is completely adjustable for rebound and high/low speed compression damping. The accurate construction and high quality components of the shock guarantee excellent and consistent damping characteristics over time.
The Husqvarna linkage system has excellent characteristics in fast and flowing sections, and excels on steep downhills. It offers great rider comfort in all situations and has great progressiveness in extremely rocky and bumpy sections. The versatile Husqvarna 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.
CNC Machined Triple Clamps
The black anodised CNC machined triple clamps have been revised for MY15. The bottom clamp has been redesigned in order to mount the same front fender as the Motocross models, providing improved stability and mounting of the front fender. The stylish triple clamps combine looks with function and deliver maximum feedback to the rider under braking, in rough terrain and on jumps, relaying accurate information on the behaviour of the front end in every situation, increasing rider confidence. The R&D department’s efforts were focused on ensuring uniform clamping of the fork legs in order to distribute the forces evenly, maintaining the leg shape, and thus proper damping along the entire stroke.
A Perfect Match:
A new front mask on the MY15 Enduro bikes evolves the Husqvarna look and houses a new front headlamp. The front fender is also new and is the same as the Motocross fender, for easier mounting. The slim and stylish lines of the side panels and radiator shrouds allow for optimal movement while riding, resulting in superior control, and faster and safer riding.
A complete range of accessories in the Husky Power catalogue complements the high quality standard equipment present on the TE 125.
The harder and more durable seat cover improves grip and also gives the seat a firmer feel, improving comfort and feeling.
The handguards now feature a new improved compound of the two-component mould for better impact resistance.
