ENGINE & GEARBOX

Powering the Svartpilen 125 is a modern fuel injected, liquid cooled, single-cylinder 4-stroke 125 cc twin overhead camshaft engine. The remarkably compact engine provides impressive power and thanks to the balancer shaft, delivers the highest levels of smoothness. The engine is equipped with an electric starter powered by a 12V/8Ah battery and it achieves its peak power of 11 kW (15 hp) with an impressive power character suited to urban riding. The 6-speed close ratio gearbox provides smooth and easy shifting for the rider by using low friction components.

FRAME

The steel trellis frame is central to the character and agility of the Svartpilen 125. Made from high-strength steel using hydro-formed tubes and robot welding, the frame is strong but also lightweight, ensuring nimble handling and detailed feedback to the rider. Designed with specific flex characteristics, the frame works in harmony with the WP Suspension to offer a comfortable and confident feel, combined with a tight turning circle for ease of use in urban environments.

BRAKES

Ensuring confident and controlled braking, the Svartpilen 125 is fitted with a hydraulically operated and radially mounted 4 piston brake caliper at the front of the machine and a single piston floating brake caliper at the rear. The calipers are manufactured to the highest standards by ByBre and in combination with the 320 mm front and 230 mm rear perforated steel discs deliver controllable and confident braking performance.

SUSPENSION

The WP APEX 43 mm open cartridge forks are made to exacting standards, ensuring the highest level of quality and craftsmanship. The open cartridge design contributes to the low overall weight of the Svartpilen 125 by using fewer components than most closed cartridge systems while also allowing for ease of maintenance. Tested and set up specifically for the Svartpilen 125, the front suspension offers dynamic handling while keeping the rider comfortable and confident when navigating busy urban environments.


Fitted directly to the swingarm, the WP APEX Monoshock features a progressive spring design. This means the rear shock is softer at the start of the stroke soaking up small bumps effortlessly and ensuring maximum comfort. As the stroke progresses, the shock becomes progressively stiffer allowing the Svartpilen 125 to absorb larger bumps and hits. Pre-load can be adjusted when carrying a pillion or additional luggage.

WHEELS & TYRES

A design highlight of the Svartpilen 125 are the 17” spoked wheels. The wheels offer a rugged character to the motorcycle and are also very robust offering premium reliability on challenging urban terrain.

Fitted to the wheels are Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres that not only have a unique visual appeal but offer exceptional grip on a wide variety of terrain.

EXHAUST

Made from a combination of steel and aluminium, the exhaust system ensures the Svartpilen 125 meets strict EURO 5 emissions regulations. Comprising two parts, the pre-silencer is made from steel while the final silencer is made from aluminium, stylishly complimenting the overall design. The final silencer is finished off with a matt-black look and the iconic Husqvarna Motorcycles logo.


DESIGN

Central to the Svartpilen 125 is the progressive design, which is a simple mix of modern thinking and classic design philosophies from previous eras. This way of thinking is synonymous with the Swedish heritage of the Husqvarna Motorcycles brand and is clearly seen on the Svartpilen 125, which comprises only what is needed.

The design additionally incorporates premium features and finishes with subtle highlights such as LED front and rear lights. The headlight features an LED daytime running light while the rear light is integrated into the rear end bodywork of the Svartpilen 125. The number plate holder is fixed to the swingarm giving the rear end a clean and uninterrupted look.
