Model Description


Beautifully crafted and assembled with premium components to create a reliable, small capacity motorcycle for young riders, the new Vitpilen 125 is the ideal machine to shake things up. Designed to deliver best-in-class performance, the quality WP suspension, cast aluminium wheels, ABS, and traction control combine to inspire confidence in all riders. Finished with modern yet minimalistic styling, the Vitpilen 125 is a stunning machine in terms of both aesthetics and rideability.

EXTERIOR

Distinguished by its bold white tank covers, which offer the perfect contrast against its largely dark demeanour, the Vitpilen 125 certainly stands out from the crowd. The bodywork is slim and minimal to ensure a comfortable ride while the bronze engine covers add the finishing touches to this unique yet understated machine.

LIGHTS

New front and rear LED lights offer improved illumination, particularly in low-light conditions. By using the latest LED technology for advanced lighting performance and enhanced visibility, riding through urban environments is safer for both the rider and other road users. The LED positioning ring on the front light acts as a daylight running light and gives the Vitpilen a distinctive premium look.

HANDLEBAR

Higher and straighter roadster style handlebars are fitted together with black anodised, forged aluminium triple clamps that feature a revised offset to improve stability. In keeping with the minimalistic look of the authentic design, the handlebar-mounted dashboard only displays essential information – speed, fuel level, and the selected gear.

TANK

The aesthetically formed, 13-litre fuel tank is a central feature of the Vitpilen 125. Contributing to the distinctive look of the machine, the tank cover seamlessly blends into the side panels to ensure movements on the machine are completely unrestricted. The tank is complete with an aluminium filler cap featuring the iconic Husqvarna Motorcycles logo.

SEAT

A new bolt-on trellis subframe lowers the height of the one-piece rider and pillion seat to 820 mm, to ensure the Vitpilen 125 accommodates a wider range of riders. Comfort is assured thanks to the revised curvature of the seat foam and the high-quality materials used to manufacture the cover.

SINGLE CYLINDER

Powering the Vitpilen 125 is a new, single-cylinder SOHC engine that is engineered with fewer components, and lighter, when compared to the previous generation. Remarkably compact, the modern engine offers improved weight distribution for refined handling and produces smooth and controllable power.

EASY SHIFT

The Easy Shift ensures all gear changes are as smooth as possible. Once the EMS registers movement on the gear lever, it momentarily limits power, which ensures smooth gear changes. For a simplified riding experience, the clutch is not needed when changing gear on the Vitpilen 125.

BRAKES

The Vitpilen 125 is fitted with hydraulic ByBre brake calipers together with a 320 mm front disc and a 240 mm rear disc. A state-of-the-art Bosch cornering sensitive ABS system ensures the highest levels of safety in varying conditions and includes a Supermoto mode that disengages the ABS at the rear wheel. All components are manufactured to the highest of standards to ensure controllable and confidence-inspiring braking performance in all situations.

RIDE MODES

The Vitpilen 125 is equipped with multiple electronic rider aids to improve its usability. The ride modes offer two power settings – Street and Rain. Street is engaged as standard while Rain can be activated in adverse weather conditions for a less aggressive throttle response. On top a speed limiter function allows riders to set a cruising speed that will not be exceeded even with the throttle fully opened.

EXHAUST

Fully redesigned and carefully assembled, the new exhaust system meets EURO 5+ regulations thanks to its double catalyser system. Made from high-strength steel, the exhaust now offers a considerable weight reduction of two kilograms when compared to the previous generation. The silencer is complete with a premium matt black finish to complement the distinctive style of the Vitpilen 125.

FRAME

The new steel trellis frame is fundamental to the character and agility of the Vitpilen 125. Hydro-formed tubes are neatly robot welded together to create a frame that is not only strong, but low in weight. This assembly process delivers nimble handling and detailed feedback to the rider. Specific flex characteristics are engineered into the frame and together with the WP suspension, the Vitpilen 125 offers a comfortable riding experience.

SUSPENSION

The WP suspension on the Vitpilen 125 is manufactured with the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship. At the front, the WP APEX open cartridge forks are 43mm in diameter for dynamic handling and offer 150 mm of travel. At the rear, the shock offers the same travel while its progressive spring design soaks up bumps of all sizes with ease. The shock features adjustable preload and is connected directly to the swingarm for a heightened level of rider feedback.

ERGONOMICS

Revised ergonomics ensure an enhanced riding experience. A more upright, comfortable riding position is achieved with a higher handlebar and increased dimensions. At the same time, reduced standover height helps to have a secure stand when coming to a stop, thanks to the improved rounder seat shape. A slightly longer wheelbase improves stability without sacrificing agility while the 15mm lower seat height places the rider closer to the centre of gravity. Together with a revised triple clamp offset, all riders will benefit from the confidence-inspiring riding position that has been created.

WHEELS AND TYRES
The six-spoke, 17″ wheels are a design highlight of the Vitpilen 125. Offering style and stability, the wheels are also robust and reliable. Michelin Power 6 tyres are fitted for their exceptional grip and predictability on the asphalt.

SWINGARM

To accommodate the relocated off-centre WP shock is the new, cast aluminium swingarm. Offering carefully calculated rigidity for improved stability and predictable handling, the curvature of the swingarm not only creates a modern appearance, but also provides additional space for the new silencer.

CONNECTIVITY

With the Connectivity Unit fitted as standard, the Vitpilen 125 provides riders with various functions to enhance their riding experience. With a smartphone connected via Bluetooth, incoming calls can be answered, music can be played, and by using the Ride Husqvarna Motorcycles app, Turn-by-Turn instructions of the navigation can be followed on the dashboard. RCM, RemoteControl Mode, enables the rider to control the app with the handlebar buttons additionally it is the foundation for upcoming features.

TFT DASHBOARD

A new and improved 5″ TFT dashboard with a bonded glass screen shows vital information to riders. The travelling speed, fuel level, and the selected gear are all clearly displayed and visible at a glance. It is controlled by the new backlight switch cubes on the left end of the handlebar.

ANTI-THEFT
The Vitpilen 125 has an immobilizer fitted as standard to provide anti-theft protection.
