PROGRESSION STARTS HERE.

Modeled after the full size motocross bikes, the TC 50 features the same striking looks and ergonomic feel in a reduced size to suite the future stars of tomorrow. The similarities between the TC 50 and the larger motocross range do not end there, a superior level of quality and attention to detail are incorporated into the TC 50 ensuring top level performance and a premium look and feel.

MOTOCROSS IS SYNONYMOUS WITH THE VERY CULTURE AND HISTORY OF THE HUSQVARNA MOTORCYCLE BRAND.

With over 100 years of continuous production, developing some of the world’s first production offroad machines, Husqvarna are truly the pioneers of the sport as we know it today. Husqvarna Motorcycles continue pioneering cutting-edge technologies by developing motorcycles that are more agile, more powerful and more ergonomically advanced than previous generations. The attention to detail and innovative techniques used by Husqvarna engineers have resulted in continued development year-on-year, delivering premium products to the motocross market.

In model year 2018, Husqvarna Motorcycles look to continue their century-long success and maintain their position as one of the leading players in the segment. To achieve this, they will continue offering motorcycles that are at the pinnacle of performance, design and ergonomics.

Husqvarna Motorcycles’ new motocross line-up consists of eight premium TC and FC models that combine cutting-edge technology with Swedish-inspired design, offering class-leading performance across the range.

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.

Based on a simple yet distinctive design, new graphics across the 2018 motocross range highlight Husqvarna’s Swedish heritage.

2018 Husqvarna TC50 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

 

Engine
The modern and compact engine features the latest in 2-stroke technology, offering class-leading performance and ride-ability. By using a 3-shaft design, the crankshaft is positioned near the centre of gravity, which not only benefits mass centralisation but also creates the ideal intake angle into the reed valve for top-level performance. Additionally, the engine is fitted with an automatic centrifugal clutch that reduces riding complexity for younger riders.

Exhaust
The exhaust is designed to specifically match the character of the TC 50 engine and is manufactured using a three-dimensional stamping process by WP Performance Systems. Once the components are shaped they are robot welded to ensure high levels of quality and durability.

Clutch
A key feature of the TC 50 is the automatic centrifugal clutch. This allows youngsters to ride without the complexity of operating a manual clutch and gearbox. The multi-disc clutch delivers a precise and predictable power delivery across the RPM range. Furthermore, it can easily be set to suit rider preferences or track conditions without the use of any special tools.

Power reduction kit
For absolute beginners the engine power can be reduced to a moderate 5.5 hp using a kit from Husqvarna Accessories.

Bodywork
The bodywork of the TC 50 is modelled after the successful full-size motocross range. This means that when scaled down, the smaller riders experience the same contact points and ergonomic feeling, instilling confidence and comfort in all riding conditions allowing riders to perform at their best for longer periods of time.

Frame
The high-strength chromoly steel frame is produced by WP Performance Systems and integrates carefully calculated parameters of longitudinal flex and torsional rigidity to benefit handling and suspension functionality. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, along with outstanding stability.

Front Suspension
Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the TC 50 is fitted with a set of revolutionary WP AER 35 forks. Besides being very light weight, the 35 mm USD forks feature exceptional damping and comfort characteristics, allowing the rider to push the limit with complete confidence. With 205 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can be easily adjusted with the use of an air pump for rider preference, weight or track conditions.

Rear Suspension
Linked directly to the swingarm, the WP monoshock is ideally matched to the front forks for perfect balance and damping characteristics. Additionally, the rear shock offers 185 mm of suspension travel and is fully adjustable allowing it to be tailored to rider preferences or track conditions.

Brakes
Featuring the same level of technology offered on the full-size motocross range, the TC 50 is fitted with hydraulic brake callipers and waved front and rear brake discs. The system ensures advanced brake feeling and stopping performance in all conditions.

Wheels
Mirroring the full-size motocross range, the TC 50 uses lightweight, black anodised, aluminium rims providing the highest strength and reliability. The standard MAXXIS tyres provide progressive grip on a variety of different terrains.

Radiator
The TC 50 features a liquid cooling system for the cylinder and crank cases. The large radiators work together with the spoilers to channel air through the cooling fins, efficiently ensuring sufficient cooling in all conditions.

Handlebars
Made of high-quality aluminium alloy, the handlebars offer top stability and safety. A crash pad on the handlebar brace protects the rider from impacts.

Graphics
Modelled after the full-size motocross bikes, the TC 50 features striking and modern graphics in white, yellow and blue depicting the Swedish heritage of the Husqvarna brand. Additionally, the graphics are applied using an in-mould process to ensure the best durability and quality.
