The lightweight TC 125 inspires confidence and total control thanks to the stronger brakes, Pro Taper handlebar and ODI lock-on grips.

NEW CRANKCASE

The new generation motocross models feature completely redesigned engines with mass-centralisation and weight reduction as the main goals. All the major components have been repositioned; on the TC 125 the crankshaft is now 37 mm higher while the clutch shaft has been raised by 27 mm. These modifications required a complete redesign of the crankcases which are now significantly more compact and lighter. The TC 125 crankcases can be fitted with an optional electric starter.

NEW CYLINDER AND PISTON

The new cylinder features a 54 mm bore, revised ports and a new innovative power valve that improves power delivery along the entire rev range. Along with increased performance, the new cylinder has a redesigned water jacket that improves cooling, ensuring greater reliability and durability. The piston has been redesigned to match the new cylinder characteristics.

NEW CRANKSHAFT

The new crankshaft is lighter and balanced differently to the previous generation in order to reduce vibrations. It is now positioned 37 mm higher within the engine in an effort to improve mass-centralisation.

NEW ENGINE

With an increase in power output from 38 hp to 40 hp, and a reduction in overall weight from 19.3 kg to 17.2 kg, the new 125 cc engine marks a significant generational step in 2-stroke technology. Kick start is standard but an electric starter is available as a Husqvarna accessories upgrade.

NEW FRAME

With years of experience in designing the most advanced steel frames in offroad, the engineers in Research and Development have designed a completely new chromium molibdenum steel frame that redefines every structural aspect in order to improve handling, ergonomics and packaging. The torsional rigidity and longitudinal stiffness have been completely rethought. The 6mm wider and 2mm lower steel tubes offer 20% more torsional rigidity and 30% less longitudinal stiffness compared to the previous generation frame design. These characteristics, matched to the new engine stays, improve handling precision while at the same time increasing bump-absorption and feeling.

NEW CARBON FIBRE SUBFRAME

The use of carbon fibre strips away weight, improving weight distribution and bringing weight closer to the centre of gravity for precise handling. The composition of the material is now 30% carbon fibre and the overall 3-piece construction is 1 kg lighter than the previous subframe, for an overall weight of 1.4 kg. It is also more compact as well as being shorter, for greatly improved ergonomics.

REVISED 4CS FORK

WP’s 4CS fork has a revised setup to match the new chassis characteristics of the MY16 generation motocross. As with all 4CS forks by WP, the clicker settings can be easily and quickly adjusted via the dials on the top of the fork tubes. The red dial on the right alters rebound damping, while the white dial on the left is for compression damping.

NEW REAR SUSPENSION

A new, shorter and lighter shock by WP features a larger gas chamber designed to maintain consistent performance during use. New internal components, such as the piston and shock shaft increase setup options. A new clevis design contributes to shortening the overall length by 12 mm, while the stroke is reduced by 3 mm. The shock is completely adjustable for high and low speed compression damping as well as rebound. The rear link has been completely redesigned to match the new rear shock. 148.2 mm pull rods replace the previous link’s 145 mm items and, combined with the redesigned bell crank, maintains a similar progressive rate as MY15. Rear wheel travel is now 300 mm and, thanks to the uprated rear suspension behaviour, softer springs can be used.

NEW GEARBOX

200 g lighter and 6 mm narrower, the all-new 6-speed gearbox features the same gear ratios as the outgoing model. The gear lever features a new tip design that prevents dirt build-up.

MAGURA CLUTCH

The hydraulic Magura clutch guarantees excellent modulation and clutch action.

NEW FOOTPEGS

The new frame features an innovative footpeg mount that prevents mud and dirt build-up, allowing the footpeg to spring back into position even in the toughest conditions. The footpegs are larger for improved grip and stability.

PRO TAPER HANDLEBAR

The new Pro Taper handlebar is second to none for function and style. Manufactured to exacting standards, the Pro Taper handlebar features class-leading fatigue resistance while meeting stringent weight requirements. Pro Taper logos are chemically applied and are scratch and peel resistant. The large Husqvarna bar pad has optimal impact resistance, while the standard handguards offer maximum roost protection.

HIGH TECH PRODUCTION PROCESSES

High-pressure die cast production processes keep the overall weight of the engine to a minimum, resulting in thin wall thickness of the crankcase. The hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded frame incorporates high quality materials and high tech production processes by WP Performance Systems, for a weight saving of 380 g over the previous generation frame.

2-STROKE PERFORMANCE

The TC 125 represents a new generation of 2-strokes that offer low weight and agile handling for easy access to competition-level motocross, while maintaining low running costs.

COMPLETELY REDESIGNED BODYWORK
