2012 Husqvarna SM50

Liquid cooled two stroke engine, disc brakes, adjustable suspensions, steel chassis with the same shape as the Husqvarna racing bike, single cylinder engine with dual clutch transmission depending on the driver’s expertise and competitiveness.

The line is the same as the Husqvarna Supermotard. The framework is in CrMo steel tubes with rectangular, circular and oval section; the most visible section as it connects the upper beam to the hub. The rear frame is detachable.

The fork is also in CrMo steel and supports a dual piston brake caliper in forged and anodized aluminium. The rear brake disc has a diameter of 140 mm while the front one has a diameter of 160 mm with race replica “wave” design.

Front safety is guaranteed by a system with Formula radial pump in forged and anodized aluminium with adjustable aluminium lever.

The handlebar, with practical Husqvarna personalized pads, has a diameter of 22 mm.

As regards suspension, the Marzocchi fork has 32 mm diameter piston rods and 185 mm stroke. The Sachs shock absorber has a wheel stroke of 200 mm , adjustable spring preload and Hydraulic rebound.

The carburettor is a 19 mm Dell’Orto PHBG. The fuel tank has a capacity of 2.7 litres.

Thanks to the stability offered by the steel framework, the over-dimensioned suspensions and the disc brake system, the SM 50 sets new standards in terms of safety and at the same time represents the starting point for tomorrow’s supermotard champions.

The essence of a real dirt bike in miniature. This is the nature of the new Husqvarna SM50, the “mini” that has everything you need to make your debut as a real rider. Liquid cooled two stroke engine, disc brakes, adjustable suspensions, steel chassis with the same shape as the Husqvarna racing bike, single cylinder engine with a clutch that can be adjusted according to the rider’s ability.
