It wasn’t that long ago that the Motocross Action Wrecking Crew had all their 125s lined up for a shootout video in 2022.
Since then, two bikes have drastically changed and two have remained the same. KTM and Husqvarna now have fuel injection and electric start amongst a laundry list of changes to the overall platform. Yamaha and GASGAS have stayed the exact same for 2023 and still feature a carburetor . Don’t forget that in 2022 the Yamaha YZ125 saw its first major update in a long long time.
GASGAS has the previous generation frame, swing-arm, suspension settings that KTM and Husqvarna had in 2022. Is all new always better than a platform thats been around a year or two?
Is the closed off air box on the new Husqvarna better or worse than the KTM’s open ended air box?
Which bike is more fun to ride? Which bike were our test riders faster on?
Which bike had the most horsepower? We answer all these questions and more in this video. As long as manufacturers are making two strokes we will be here to test them!
