Top-tier Technology Breathes New Life into Husky TCs

GP/Motocross specialists, Husqvarna’s overhauled TC250 and re-worked TC449 are ready to take to the track; CR125 still in the action!

Rediscover the ultimate in agility, lowest in price and easiest in maintenance with Husqvarna’s mighty eighth-liter two-stroke motocrosser! Competition comes first on Husqvarna’s CR125, which carries its existing race-tested technology and top-level components into 2012.

The compact 124.8cc single-cylinder, two-stroke motor continues to sing at high tunes with a Mikuni TMX38 carburetor fed by V-Force reed valves, and like all of Husqvarna’s two-strokes, the CR125 features a Ducati Energy digital ignition. The six-speed gearbox is operated by a Brembo hydraulic clutch. Brake hydraulics are also Brembo while rotors are supplied by Braking.

The CR125 receives the same updated frame as the WR125. The all-black chromoly frame features higher rigidity for better performance and longer life. The CR continues to carry the premium Kayaba 48mm closed-cartridge fork and proven Sachs single-shock which provide a plush ride.

Along with the other shared changes across the Husqvarna line of motorcycles – silver anodized Excel rims and new black/red IPD (in-mold plastic design) graphics – bodywork on the CR125 features new airbox protection for the 2012 model.
