Using their global engagement in top-level racing to further improve the entire motocross line-up, together with extensive research and development Husqvarna Motorcycles’ 2017 TC 125, TC 250, FC 250, FC 350, FC 450 and TC 85 models remain true to the brand’s commitment to deliver premium motorcycles with state-of-the-art technology.

Featuring all-new WP Performance Systems AER 48 front forks, traction control, a new from the ground up TC 250 2-stroke as well as further advances in engine management and high-tech componentry throughout, Husqvarna Motorcycles offer machinery that supports riders in all situations.

2-STROKE FANS REJOICE

Considerable energy has gone into the development of the all-new Husqvarna TC 250, which together with the smaller capacity TC 85 and TC 125 machines make up the complete line-up of 2-stroke models.The 2017 TC 250 represents the continued development of the historic 250 cc 2-stroke within Husqvarna’s motocross line-up. With a significant reduction in overall weight together with improved agility it features a completely redesigned, lightweight engine that offers increased efficiency, optimised centralisation of masses as well as substantial vibration reduction. The TC 250 is now smaller, lighter and smoother. A favourite among 125 cc 2-stroke lovers, the TC 125 is designed having premium performance and quality in mind. The all-new WP AER 48 forks, the new Mikuni TMX 38 mm carburettor and the Magura hydraulic clutch all ensure the 2017 TC 125 remains one step ahead of the competition. Built for future motocross champions Husqvarna’s TC 85 receives new, stylish colours and graphics, which aesthetically bring it even closer to its larger capacity siblings.

THE FUTURE IS NOW

Introducing further engine developments, Husqvarna Motorcycles ensure all motors continue to set a higher benchmark in terms of reduced weight, design and performance, in all categories. Across the 4-stroke model range the refined Keihin engine management system is designed to process data faster, offering an all-new traction control for 2017. Analysing throttle input and sudden increases in RPM, the sensors registers any loss of grip to reduce power to the rear wheel, ensuring maximum traction. With integrated launch control for perfect starts, the EMS also features selectable engine maps via a switch on the handlebars. The Keihin 44 mm throttle body is positioned accordingly to ensure the most efficient flow into the combustion chamber. Thanks to the elimination of a throttle linkage, the response to any throttle movement is more immediate. Ideally matching the characteristics of each engine while keeping their overall weight to a minimum all exhaust systems comply with the necessary FIM noise limits for motocross racing. Header pipes on the 4-strokes feature resonance chambers for improved power delivery, with the FC 450 having its resonance chamber integrated into the header pipe. All 4-stroke models come with electric starters as standard, which are combined with lightweight and powerful Li-Ion batteries for easy and reliable starting.

REACHING NEW HEIGHTS

Built by WP Performance Systems the hydro-formed chromium molybdenum frame is designed with calculated parameters of longitudinal and torsional flex to ensure superior handling and easy manoeuvrability. To further enhance suspension functionality and improve overall chassis feeling all 4-strokes feature new, lightweight aluminium engine mounts. Developed to perfectly match the chassis characteristics are the all-new WP AER 48 front forks, featured across the new 2017 Husqvarna range. Super lightweight, easily adjustable and offering an incredible amount of feedback to the rider no matter the conditions, the WP AER 48 forks reach new heights in terms of suspension technology. Unique to Husqvarna’s models is the three-piece composite subframe made of 30% carbon fibre, which as well as being incredibly strong weighs just 1.4 kg. Attached to the frame is an innovative self-cleaning footpeg mount preventing dirt from building up in muddy conditions or when riding in deep ruts. As a result the footpegs always springs back to their original position. A high-quality clutch system made by Magura ensures near maintenance-free operation and perfect clutch engagement in every condition. The ODI lock-on grips come together with a pioneering throttle assembly with easy free-play adjustment and the ability to alter throttle progression by changing a cam. Finally the WP radiators, 7-litre polythene fuel tanks, the tool-less airbox design and the DID alloy rims with CNC machined hubs ensure that the new 2017 Husqvarna motocross line-up is among the most advanced on the market.

The new Husqvarna MY17 motocross range will be available worldwide from June 2016 at all authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealers. For all details on pricing and availability, please refer to your national Husqvarna Motorcycles Subsidiary or Importer.

2017 Husqvarna TC250 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Components

The latest technology in engineering and production processes, combined with the highest quality components, makes for long-lasting performance.

Pro Taper handlebar

Manufactured to exacting standards, the Pro Taper handlebar features class-leading fatigue resistance while adding minimal weight. For MY17, the lower handlebar clamp has been separated into two individual clamps while the top clamp is a bridge-type clamp improving torsional stiffness.

Mikuni Carburettor

The MY17 TC 250 features a 38mm flat slide Mikuni TMX carburettor. This new carburettor provides an increasingly smooth and controllable power delivery with optimal performance over the entire RPM range. Additionally, it is also very easy to set.

DDS clutch

The DDS (damped diaphragm steel) clutch system is fitted to the new TC 250. The inner hub and pressure plate have been designed for optimal oil flow and cooling, while the Magura hydraulics offer perfect modulation and control. The exclusive characteristics of this system include a single diaphragm steel pressure plate instead of traditional coil springs and integrates a damping system for increased traction and durability. The clutch basket is a single-piece CNC machined steel component that allows the use of thin steel liners and contributes to the compact design of the engine.

WP AER 48 suspension

The WP AER 48 is a new milestone in the development of Husqvarna motocross models. It is safe, lightweight and easy to adjust through a single air valve and supplied fork pump for pre-load and click adjusters for compression and rebound. The system is made up of a set of split-system forks consisting of an air suspension unit and a hydraulic damping unit. The new forks offer a weight reduction of 1.6 kg in comparison to conventional fork systems of MY16. The forks are extremely responsive thanks to friction-optimized surface coating on the outer and inner tube surfaces and optimally designed sealing systems.

WP DCC rear suspension

The WP DCC rear shock is designed to provide advanced damping characteristics while keeping to a compact and lightweight design. With a pressure balance inside the shock, damping is consistent and results in greater rider comfort and handling. Additonally, the outer surface of the gas reservoir is corrugated and increases cooling. The component is also fully adjustable and matched to a linkage system with a specific geometry to deliver the best possible traction and progression.

Magura hydraulic clutch

The high quality German-made Magura clutch system guarantees even wear, almost maintenance-free operation and perfect modulation in every condition. This means that play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time.

Brakes

Class-leading Brembo callipers and controls with high quality waved GSK discs deliver superior stopping power instilling confidence in any condition. 260mm disc front and 220mm rear. New for MY17 is a rear brake lever which is 10mm longer as well as new rear brake pads that are less aggressive and provide improved modulation.

New engine

The 250cc 2-stroke engine is the ultimate combination of unsurpassed power and lightweight construction. The simplicity and low maintenance cost of the 2-stroke motor makes it a favourite amongst motocross riders. The new TC 250 engine has a completely new construction featuring a new shaft arrangements for better mass centralisation, a new counter balancer shaft reducing vibration, a new twin-valve controlled power valve and re-worked 5-speed gearbox.

New cylinder

The 66.4mm bore cylinder features a newly developed power valve system which delivers smooth and controlled power throughout the RPM range. This can be further customised by simply changing two springs supplied and altering the power delivery for different track conditions or rider preference. The new cylinder and cylinder head incorporate a new water jacket design which guarantees better heat dissipation and improved cooling under the most extreme conditions. New cylinder head mountings secure the engine to the frame while also reducing vibrations for a smooth ride.

New crankcases

In an effort to centralize mass, the lightweight die-cast engine casings are developed to accommodate new shaft arrangements. The clutch shaft is now 4mm higher while the crankshaft position is also raised 19.5mm centralising oscillating mass and improving ride-ability. Additionally the new counter balancer shaft has been integrated in a very compact manner without compromising the overall design while new engine covers offer better resistance from wear created by riders boots.

New counter balancer shaft

The new engine design incorporates a laterally mounted counter balancer shaft. This shaft significantly reduces vibrations resulting in a smoother, more comfortable ride.

New frame

With years of experience in designing the most advanced steel frames in offroad, the engineers in Research and Development designed a chromium molybdenum steel frame that redefines every structural aspect that benefits handling, ergonomics and packaging. With carefully calculated tortional and longitudinal flex, the frame works in harmony with the suspension to offer sharp handling and superior comfort. These characteristics, matched to a lightweight and compact engine design, offer exceptional handling precision while at the same time increasing bump-absorption and feeling.

Carbon fibre subframe

The use of carbon fibre strips away weight, improving weight distribution and bringing weight closer to the centre of gravity for precise handling. The composition of the material is 30% carbon fibre and the overall 3-piece construction is remarkably light but also very strong for an overall weight of 1.4 kg. Additionally, a specific rigidity has been calculated in the component for optimal handling and rider ergonomics.

New exhaust header

The new exhaust header is manufactured by WP performance systems using a 3 dimensional stamping process. After the elements of the exhaust have been shaped they are robot welded to ensure the best quality and durability.

Wheels and tyres

Black high-strength alloy rims by DID are coupled to CNC machined hubs using lightweight spokes and silver anodised aluminium nipples. Fitted are new Dunlop MX-3S Motocross tyres that feature the proven “block-within-a-block” design for more progressive cornering and superior grip.
