From a press release by Husqvarna:

Driven by a 125 cc, 15 hp single-cylinder engine, the new Svartpilen 125 and Vitpilen 125 offer a chance to learn and explore, combining ergonomic design with high-end components for a reassuring ride. Like their larger capacity siblings, both models feature WP suspension, ByBre brakes, and Bosch cornering sensitive ABS. Offering an outstanding power-to-weight ratio, the agile, compact, and A1 licence-compliant Svartpilen 125 and Vitpilen 125 are expertly designed for the next generation of young riders.

The new 2024 engine also features plasma-coated cylinders instead of Nicasil coating, plus new fuel injection with a new injector design and position, working alongside a redesigned airbox and exhaust to meet the latest Euro5+ emissions limits, an evolution of the previous Euro5 standard that adds new tests for longevity.

Like the larger-engine versions, the Vitpilen 125 is the recipient of the biggest revamp of its comfort and usability for 2024. The café racer stance of the original is out, and in comes a more conventional roadster with broader, taller bars and a more useable real-world riding position.

While the rider triangle – the relationship between the seat, pegs and bars – of the Svartpilen 125 is only slightly tweaked for 2024, with a lower seat and longer wheelbase, that of the Vitpilen 125 is heavily altered. The bars are much taller and wider, taking weight off the rider’s wrists and making the bike easier to handle at the same time.

Technical highlights:
• New frame and swingarm that accommodate the new engine with off-centre rear suspension
• New 5” bonded glass TFT display
• Open cartridge front fork
• A premium paint finish with overcoated decals
• Low seat height of 820 mm
• Cornering ABS
• Easy Shift and connectivity features as standard
• LED headlight with positioning light ring
• Spoked 17” wheels with premium Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres (Svartpilen 125)
• Cast aluminium 17" wheels with 6-spoke aero design and premium Michelin Power 6 tyres (Vitpilen 125)
