Motocross 2015: what’s new – in detail
New 4CS fork
WP has developed a closed cartridge 4CS fork specifically for Motocross. The new four chamber fork has improved damping characteristics and is also lighter than the previous closed cartridge fork. As with all 4CS forks by WP, the clicker settings can be easily and quickly adjusted via the dials on the top of the fork tubes. The red dial on the right alters rebound damping, while the white dial on the left is for compression damping. WP suspension stands for top quality and offers the best performance levels. Precision engineering, quality materials and advanced production processes are an integral part of the WP forks on the Husqvarna model range.
– New 4CS closed cartridge fork ? specifically designed for Motocross, improved damping and 175g lighter than previous fork
– Easy access clicker dials ? simple and fast clicker settings
New 22mm front axle
In the overall optimisation of the chassis, the MY15 Motocross bikes feature a new 22mm front axle with specific fork shoes in place of the previous 26mm axle. The new axle is lighter, and the shoes have shorter offset and increased trail, for more stability and better front-end feel.
– New 22mm front axle replaces 26mm axle ? reduced unsprung weight (40g) and better feeling
– Shorter offset on fork shoes ? improved fork functioning
New linkage geometry
The rear link has been revised and now features a higher starting rate, and therefore a less progressive curve, that provides better control in all circumstances. Further advancements in production processes have seen an improvement in quality and a reduction in weight of the triangle and pull rod of approximately 40g.
– New linkage geometry ? optimized rising rate for better control and stability
– New production process ? weight reduction on all components
New rear shock
The high performance Husqvarna DCC (Dual Compression Control) rear shock made by WP has a revised setup and has been re-valved to match the geometry changes of the new rear link. The new shock features a 4mm increase in stroke thanks to the new link geometry, for better handling and damping characteristics.
– New WP shock ? revised setup and valving
– 4mm more shock stroke ? same wheel travel for better damping characteristics
Rear subframe reinforcement
The lightweight polyamide rear subframe has been reinforced with an additional screw on the airbox side that improves the fitment between the left subframe arm and the airbox. The improved seal guarantees better performance and durability.
– Improved fitment of subframe components ? improved airbox seal for better performance
– A unique feature in Motocross ? highlights Husqvarna’s technological knowhow
New fork protectors
The distinctive yellow fork protectors have been redesigned and no longer wrap around the fork leg. The new design allows for improved access to the fork leg for better maintenance and cleaning, while also being easier to replace.
– New fork protectors ? easier to replace, better maintenance and cleaning of fork
Handguards are standard across the range and now feature better impact resistance thanks to a new compound.
– Improved handguards ? better impact resistance
New Neken handlebars
New Neken handlebar, with the same bend as the previous model year, with Husqvarna bar pad mated to Husqvarna grips for excellent control of the bike.
– New Neken handlebar and bar pad ? distinctive looks
New seat cover
The seat features a new seat cover material that improves grip and durability. The sturdy material is also harder than the previous cover, making the entire seat firmer, improving comfort and feeling.
– Durable and firm seat cover ? improved grip, durability, feeling and comfort
Dunlop MX52 tyres
wheels are complemented by new Dunlop MX52 Motocross tyres that feature The lightweight a new “block-within-a-block” design for more progressive cornering. The new Dunlop rubber has been developed to offer superior grip in a wider variety of terrain.
– New design developed in top-level AMA Supercross and Motocross ? enhanced handling, cornering and steering feel combined with increased durability
The traditional Husqvarna white, blue and yellow has evolved into a striking and distinctive look for the MY15 Motocross range.
– New graphics differentiated from Enduro models ? evolution of Husqvarna design and colours
Overall weight savings
The general optimization of the MY15 Motocross range results in an overall weight saving of 338 g.
2015 Husqvarna TE125 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
