ENGINE AND 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.
The steel trellis frame is central to the Svartpilen 125 character and agility. Made from high strength steel using hydro formed tubes and robot welding, the frame is not only 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.
The Svartpilen 125 is fitted with hydraulic ByBre brake calipers, which are manufactured to the highest standards, and in combination with 320 mm front and 230 mm rear perforated steel discs, deliver controllable and confident braking performance. Additionally, a state-of-the-art Bosch ABS system ensures the highest level of safety in varying braking conditions. The system can be set to Supermoto mode, which disengages the ABS functionality on the rear wheel. More advanced riders then have control to lock up the rear wheel if needed.

The front suspension features 43 mm open cartridge forks forks, while the rear features a progressive damping system connected directly to the swingarm.
