Husqvarna WR 125 VS TE 250?

Recommended Posts

I sold my Husqvarna WR 250 a while ago and now I am searching for a new bike. I am a novice and the bike is going to be raced.

My Husqvarna had more than enough power anywhere for a small 65 kg dude like me. It had probably been wiser to buy a 125cc or a 250F in the first place. Power wise, both should be easier to use than my old 250 2 stroke.

I felt that I had a hard time keeping a fast pace (by my standards) for a long time with Husqvarnan, I became very tired quickly if I tried to drive hard. I drove more “calmly” than a could drive for 2-2.5 hours whit out being worn out.

Was it the power curve that tired me out? Or was it the 108kg the Husqvarnan weight? Which made it hard for me? It was a long time ago I test drove the smaller bikes. The only comparison I have in "modern" time is a KTM 125cc I tried last summer. It was like a moped compared to my 250cc.

In a bike magazine from 2006 they weigh a different Husqvarnas. WR 250: 108kg. WR 125: 101kg. TE 250 116kg. TE 250 is 8kg heavier than WR 250! If you bought one, will it worn me out fast as me previous WR 250? Because it is so much heavier? Or will the smoother power curve to do that I can run longer at a faster pace?

The best would probably be a Husqvarna WR 125, it is more economical. But the TE 250 is a lot easier to find.

The big question is really why did I get tired? Was it the weight or the power from the WR 250?

I think it was the combo of power and weight that wore you out. The WR 125's are awesome woods bikes and IMO you be look out for one of them. They have great power thats easy to control. You don't have to ride them "on the pipe" to move through the woods quickly. I have the 08 Husky CR144 and it's unreal how good of a woods machine it is so that's another option.
