The TC 85 engine uses the latest in 2-stroke technology to deliver unrivalled performance in the competitive 85cc class. With an unchanged bore and stroke, the engine is1.5 pounds lighter and delivers improved power and ride-ability along the complete RPM range.


The cylinder is designed around an innovative power valve system, the system controls both the exhaust valve and the sub-exhaust port for impressive power, torque and controllability. As a result, the TC 85 delivers significant mid-range performance, reducing the need to use the clutch in loamy or sandy conditions.


Manufactured using a high pressure die-cast production process, the crankcases are designed with thinner wall thickness to save weight, while retaining strength and durability. This design also aids in a more compact arrangement, positioning the shaft arrangements closer to the center of gravity for improved handling.


The TC 85 features an upgraded diaphragm spring clutch for improved durability while remaining lightweight and compact. The clutch is actuated using a FORMULA hydraulic system, meaning that play is always compensated and the clutch point remains the same under different conditions as well as over time.




Crafted to provide precise feedback to young riders, the chromium molybdenum steel frame is made using advanced robot welding and hydroformed tubes.

WP XACT front fork

Much like the forks on the larger MX range, the WP XACT forks consist of a 43 mm split fork design using a capsulated air spring in the left leg and the trusted oil damping system in the right leg. These components offer remarkable suspension performance with 280 mm wheel travel.

WP XACT PDS mono shock

The WP XACT PDS shock absorber is fitted to the TC 85. PDS, “progressive damping system,” allows the rear end to stay stable over smaller bumps or rough terrain while also soaking up bigger hits with ease.


Made from lightweight aluminum, the subframe features a short and compact profile. The profile not only contributes to the overall low weight but also improves mass centralization.




Inspired by the Swedish heritage of the Husqvarna brand, the striking white, grey, and yellow graphics are applied using in-mould technology for increased durability and a quality finish.


The TC 85 features bodywork scaled to precisely fit the proportions of an 85 rider. The contact points and feeling deliver exceptional ergonomics, instilling confidence while also leaving room for free and unrestricted movement.


Brake calipers from Formula, a 240 mm wave disc up front and 220 mm wave disc at the rear provide improved brake feel and consistent brake pad wear to ensure confident braking in any riding condition. Additionally, our clutch and brake assembly reduces wear and ensures maximum reliability and durability.


Black EXCEL rims and CNC-machined hubs are fitted with MAXXIS MAXXCROSS MX-ST tires that deliver outstanding performance on a wide variety of terrain.

ODI lock-on grips

The TC 85 is fitted with high quality ODI lock on grips as standard. The system includes a vulcanized grip on the throttle grip while the lock-on grip on the left does not require any glue or wire to secure it to the handlebar.




The Twin Air filter can be easily accessed without tools, by simply removing the left side panel for quick maintenance. The airbox design allows optimum airflow and maximum filter protection.


The TC 85 features radiators designed with computational fluid dynamics to ensure the ideal passage of air through the cooling fins for optimum engine temperature and the highest performance.


The swingarm is manufactured from a single piece of aluminum using a gravity die-cast production process. This gives the swingarm exceptional strength while keeping the weight to a minimum. Chain adjustment markings are also visible from above to make for quicker, simpler adjustment.


The exhaust system on the TC 85 is perfectly suited to the power characteristics of the engine and contributes to the outstanding performance and rideability all round. Additionally, the short and lightweight silencer improves mass centralization while keeping noise levels to a minimum.
