Husqvarna have revealed their line-up of 2019 motocross models, with the five model range boasting a host of updates, including a new frame, revised suspension, engine improvements & redesigned bodywork.
Collecting feedback from world-class racers and combining it with extensive in-house testing and development, Husqvarna’s engineers have introduced a long list of upgrades.
Introducing a new generation of five 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines, represents the next step in the brand’s motocross range, from the TC 125 to the FC 450 4-stroke machine.
Standing out among a long list of upgrades is the new frame that is finished off in a premium blue powder coating. For MY19, it features an increase in longitudinal rigidity that results in improved rider feedback. Receiving new settings to perfectly match the new frame characteristics, WP AER forks and a DCC shock help further improve energy absorption and straight-line stability.
With all five models receiving a series of carefully considered improvements in the engine department, the flagship FC 450 has a redesigned and more compact SOHC cylinder head that reduces the engine’s total weight by a substantial half-kilogram.
To further enhance performance while keeping weight to a minimum, the exhaust systems on all 2-stroke and 4-stroke models have received major changes for 2019.
With all new bikes featuring high-quality ProTaper handlebars and new spoke nipples on the D.I.D wheels, the FC 4-stroke machines also have new compact Li-ion 2.0 Ah batteries with improved output consistency.
Showcasing Husqvarna Motorcycles’ design is fresh new bodywork offering tailored ergonomics for optimum comfort and control.
