The Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 comes with a full Euro5-spec powertrain with low fuel consumption, eccentric body design and premium suspension and braking equipment. 

The Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 is powered by a Euro5 homologated 125cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled DOHC engine matched to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is speculated to be based on the KTM 125 Duke which pumps out 14.5 Bhp of power and 12 Nm of torque.

The Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 features 17-inch spoked wheels on both the front and rear shod in Pirelli tyres.
