2023 Husqvarna TC65 Features and Benefits


Featuring the latest in 2-stroke technology, the TC 65 is highly competitive in the 65cc class. Apart from using the lightest and most durable materials, the engine features a pressure-controlled exhaust valve that delivers top-level performance. Additionally, the engine features a manual 6-speed transmission and hydraulic clutch, which allows the rider to have full control of the power delivery.




The high-performance cylinder is made from lightweight and durable aluminum. Incorporating a pressure-controlled exhaust valve (PCEV) the cylinder provides unrivalled performance within the highly competitive 65cc class.


The progressive bodywork is scaled down to precisely fit the proportions of a 65cc rider. The contact points allow younger riders to feel a similar level of control and comfort as riders do on Husqvarna’s full-sized models.

The ergonomics instill confidence while leaving room for free and unrestricted movement, allowing riders to perform at their peak for longer periods of time.


The high-strength chromoly steel frame 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. The subframe is fitted to the frame with four screws and is made from lightweight aluminum.


Made from lightweight cast aluminum, the hollow swingarm is designed using sophisticated simulation data and calculated to have optimal rigidity while using minimal wall thickness. As a result, the swingarm features ideal rigidity at the least possible weight.


An intelligent cooling circuit with integrated crankcase cooling and two radiators ensures heat dissipation. The result is constant temperature balance for consistent high performance.

WP XACT front suspension

Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the TC 65 is fitted with WP XACT forks with AER technology. Besides being lightweight, the 35 mm USD forks feature exceptional damping and comfort characteristics that allow riders to perform with complete confidence. Featuring 215 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can be adjusted easily (with the use of an air pump) according to rider preference, weight or track conditions. This leaves the rider with more riding time and less time spent setting up the suspension.

WP XACT rear suspension

Linked directly to the swingarm, the WP XACT PDS monoshock is matched perfectly to the front forks for the faultless balance and damping characteristics.

Additionally, the rear shock offers 270 mm of suspension travel and is fully adjustable allowing it to be tailored to rider preferences or track conditions.


The tapered NEKEN handlebar is made of high-quality aluminum alloy ensuring both strength and comfort. Its diameter shrinks from the central 28 mm area to 22 mm in the bends and the grip mounting position. Here, a lock-on ODI grip is mounted on the left side while a vulcanized ODI grip is fitted onto the right-side throttle assembly.

Additionally, the specific handlebar bend is created to offer the best ergonomic position. A bar pad on the handlebar protects the rider from heavy impacts.


The reliable and light hydraulic clutch system guarantees even wear, near maintenance-free operation, and perfect action in every condition. With the play being constantly adjusted, the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time.

Wheels and tires

Mirroring the full-size motocross range, the TC 65 uses lightweight, black anodized, aluminum rims that provide the highest strength and reliability. The new MAXXIS MX-ST tires deliver outstanding performance on a variety of terrain. The pattern design and rubber compound deliver exceptional straight-line stability and excellent traction and predictability.

  • New MAXXIS MAXXCROSS MX-ST tires – exceptional straight-line stability and excellent traction and predictability


Featuring the same level of technology offered on the full-size motocross range, the TC 65 is fitted with new floating brake calipers from Formula and large waved front (198 mm) and rear (180 mm) brake discs. The system ensures advanced brake feeling and stopping performance in all conditions.

Additionally, a new clutch and brake assembly reduces wear and ensures maximum reliability and durability.

  • New Formula brake calipers, clutch and brake assemblies → superior stopping power and improved reliability
  • Larger rear rotor (+20 mm) → added braking performance


The TC 65 features striking new graphics in white, grey, and yellow with the design taking inspiration from the Swedish heritage of the Husqvarna brand. Additionally, the graphics are applied using an in-mold process to ensure the highest levels of durability and quality.
