– 2012 Husqvarna TXC250 Review

2012 Husqvarna TXC250

The TXC250 is made for the trail, but bred for competition! With plenty of influence from its TC motocross counterpart, Husqvarna focused on gaining maximum performance from the 2012 TXC250. New ignition timing, heavily revised fuel injection and all-new Leo Vince exhaust make for a more aggressive power output. Chassis upgrades also enhance the TXC250’s overall performance.



2012 Husqvarna TXC250 Features and Benefits

In the power department, the TXC250 is markedly improved. Husqvarna focused on gaining maximum performance from the 2012 TXC250, and heavily revised the fuel injection system for optimum power output. An all-new Leo Vince exhaust system and revised ignition timing allow the 249.5cc fuel injected powerplant to run stronger and churn out bigger power.

Up front, the TXC250 features premium Kayaba suspension. The 48mm closed-cartridge fork receives revised damping, making the TXC more capable than ever of tackling tough terrain while providing a supple ride for everyone to the casual trail rider to aggressive crosscountry racer. Further chassis upgrades include the Kayaba shock which replaces the Sachs unit.

* New all-black chromoly frame with higher rigidity and improved strength. * Kayaba suspension front and rear. * New 48mm Kayaba closed-cartridge fork re-valved with stiffer settings. * Silver Excel rims. * New style IPD (in-mold plastic design) graphics.
