A compact and powerful engine is combined with a lightweight chromium molybdenum frame making the small capacity motocrosser extremely capable in the hands of future MX2 and MX1 riders. Along with the standard WP AER 48 fork, Magura hydraulic clutch and map select the TC 125 keeps its rider a step ahead of the competition.

For model year 2018 Husqvarna Motorcycles’ engineers focused their attentions on introducing further engine and chassis advances, while presenting a new from the ground up TC 85 machine.

Raising the bar in terms of design, performance and handling, the all-new generation TC 85 shares the same levels of premium quality and advanced technology as found on Husqvarna Motorcycles’ full-sized motocross machines. Featuring an all-new frame and high-tech WP suspension the 2018 TC 85 will allow junior motocross riders to perform with total confidence.

A major upgrade to all full-sized 2018 TC and FC machines are the Magura front and rear braking systems. Utilising a similar layout to the previous design, the new brakes now offer the best in terms of sensitivity and feeling. Additionally, all 4-strokes receive a new Li-Ion battery.

2018 Husqvarna TC125 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine

With 40 hp, and an overall weight of just 17.2 kg, the 125cc engine indicates constant development in 2-stroke technology by Husqvarna. The lightweight engine is designed to provide more torque than current 125cc 2–stroke engines making the TC 125 easier to ride for both beginners and seasoned professionals. Sticking with the overall theme, the TC 125 engine is designed to centralise rotating mass for optimal operation with the chassis resulting in a light and agile handling feel.

             Latest generation 2-stroke → 40 hp, 17.2 kg
