The Early Days of Moto
In the 1950s, Husqvarna’s ultra lightweight and compact ‘Silverpilen’ street model was the first choice for riders wanting to build offroad-capable self-modified bikes.
The first official European Motocross Championship was held in 1952, with the first World Championship running in 1957.
Husqvarna’s first motocross championship titles came in 1959 (Rolf Tibblin’s European 250 cc title) and 1960 (Bill Nilsson’s 500 cc world title).
In both 1962 and 1963 Husqvarna swept the 250 cc and 500 cc world titles in a single season with Rolf Tibblin and Torsten Hallman.
The first production motocross competition models arrived in 1963 with a production run of 100 replicas of Hallman’s championship bike.
Thanks to cross-Atlantic exploits to introduce the sport to the USA by riders like Torsten Hallman, the sport exploded in popularity in the late ‘60s and ‘70s.
By 1979 Husqvarna Motorcycles had clinched 13 motocross world titles, 9 Baja 1000 wins and multiple victories in the US nationals and legendary Trans-AMA series.
