Husqvarna Motorcycles have shown off the updated for 2019 TC 50, TC 65 and TC 85 motocross models, a complete line-up of three 2-stroke junior motorcycles that combine premium technology with top-end componentry to offer young riders one of the most advanced mini motocross range currently available.
HUSQVARNA TC 50
Offering the same striking looks and ergonomic feel as Husqvarna’s full-sized motocross machines, the new TC 50 is perfect for the motocross stars of tomorrow. Featuring superior quality components, the TC 50 has been designed from the ground up in order to be a true premium 50cc motocross bike.
The TC 50 is built around an advanced steel frame, which houses the most powerful engine in its category. Featuring the latest in 2-stroke technology, the engine makes use of a 3-shaft design for improved centralisation of masses. The exhaust is specifically designed to match the characteristics of the 2- stroke powerplant. The engine is fitted with an automatic centrifugal clutch that reduces riding complexity for younger riders.
Leading components such as the WP suspension add up to create a motorcycle that sets the benchmark in the class. The TC 50 is fitted with a revolutionary WP AER 35 fork. Besides being very light, the 35 mm forks allow the rider to push the limit with confidence. With 205 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can be adjusted with an air pump. Offering 185 mm of suspension travel, the WP monoshock is matched perfectly to the front forks.
Part of the official Husqvarna Motorcycles Accessories range, a special kit allows for a reduction of the power to 5.5 hp.
HUSQVARNA TC 65
The new TC 65 offers young motocross fans the chance to experience a full race bike with a hydraulic clutch and a manual gearbox, possibly for the first time in their riding careers.
Featuring premium components as standard, the TC 65 offers exactly the same quality as that found on Husqvarna’s larger motocross machines.
Highly competitive in the 65 cc class, the TC 65 engine is built using the lightest and most durable materials. Featuring the latest in 2-stroke technology, it has a pressure-controlled exhaust valve which helps obtain top level performance. Additionally, the engine features a manual 6-speed transmission and hydraulic clutch allowing the rider to have full control of the power delivery.
Sophisticated components such as the cast aluminium swingarm are blend together with advanced solutions like the intelligent cooling circuit to create a motorcycle that is modern and highly competitive.
In the suspension department, the TC 65 features a revolutionary WP AER 35 fork, with 215 mm of wheel travel and an adjustable air unit in its left fork. Matched ideally to the forks, the WP monoshock rear suspension offers 270 mm of travel and is fully adjustable.
HUSQVARNA TC 85
Combining the latest in chassis technology with state of the art WP suspension, the 2019 Husqvarna TC85 offers young mini riders the chance to push their limits with confidence.
Setting the benchmark in the class, the TC 85 2-stroke engine combines top level performance with optimum reliability. The cylinder is designed around an innovative power valve system that significantly enhances power, torque and controllability. Key to the engine is an innovative power valve which allows power delivery to be tailored simply and effectively. The 6-speed gearbox and Formula hydraulic diaphragm spring clutch allow for the power to be correctly delivered across the RPM range.
Mirroring technology found in Husqvarna’s full-size motocross models, the TC 85 features the latest WP suspension componentry. Up front, the WP AER 43 has a split fork design with air in its left leg and oil in the right leg. Offering advanced damping characteristics, the forks are easily adjustable via the easy access clickers and with the use of the supplied pump.
In the rear, the TC 85 is fitted with a special version of the WP XPlore PDS shock absorber. Designed to work perfectly with the forks, the rear shock is fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound.
The Husqvarna MY19 mini motocross models are expected to be available around the middle of this year from authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles dealers.
