The smaller Husqvarna bikes will come based on the existing 250 cc models from the Swedish bike maker. Externally, they will feature the same aggressive design while the mechanical details will be shared with the KTM 125 Duke street naked bike. At the heart of the bikes will sit the same 125cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine from its Austrian counterpart. This engine is responsible for delivering 15 bhp of power and 12 Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.

Some of the main features on the 125cc Husqvarna models may include full-LED lighting, a digital instrument cluster, and a swingarm-mounted tyre hugger. They may also use wire-spoke wheels, unlike the existing 250 cc line that feature alloys.
