First impressions: “Sherco’s SE-R 125 packs a punch!”

Enduro21

http://enduro21.com/index.php/40-gen...-packs-a-punch

Sherco’s 2018 new models were launched to the world at the Ales Trem extreme enduro venue in France and their all-new SE-R 125 two-stroke was barking loudest.*

The boy making all the noise at this launch is the brand new addition to the Sherco line-up, the SE-R 125 two stroke. With all bikes in the range getting some smaller changes for 2018, the 125 is showing off in all the limelight as the complete new model.*

Sherco’s reasons behind the new 125 are all about trying to catch younger riders into the*Sherco*‘brand’ as much as filling a hole in their own model line-up.*

It’s about growing as a manufacturer but also giving dealers, particularly across Europe where the 125 market is strong, a bike to catch the kids with.*

The result is an efficient but torquey little 125 motor “easily a contender for best in class,” according to our test rider, Jon Pearson.*

“Sherco’s aim was to make a rideable bike, smoother and more progressive power delivery so the little SE-R can hold its own in the tight stuff as much as it can rocket full beans through the fast sections.*

“Sherco did a good job and although it keeps the characteristic punch of a two-stroke (and a pretty good punch at that too!) it is useful and relatively torquey for a 125 low in the revs.”

The new bike features a completely new 125 two-stroke engine, which has been in development for one and a half years.*

It meets Euro 4 emissions laws thanks to some clever work perfecting how the carbureted engine with its electronic power-valve — though it remains a carbureted engine.*

Along with a specific chassis, WP Xplor 48mm forks and low weight there’s a lot going on with this bike so stay tuned to upcoming issue #23 of*Enduro illustrated*for a full debrief.

We’ll have*Beta’s RR 125 two-stroke*in there to compare too. Lovely jubbly....

Those things look terrific. Good quality components too.
A few more details here - except for the weight...

For me I reckon 125 is just a bit too small, just need another 25-75cc and my bank account would be in danger. Luckily the 150xcw isn't registerable, otherwise I'd have one...

I really like how the sherco linkage is designed as if it will slide with the bike and not hanging like a hook like the kato/husky.

Have to say i hope the drawing of the active connection point on the starter doesn't stick out that much, or at least has some protection around it

I should be getting some form of commission from the Sherco marketing department.
