For 2010, Husqvarna worked to deliver a new motocross range that is composed from models characterized by more engine performance and better handling, while also being more reliable and weighing less. The new Husky TC450 is the first example in that matter as it was derived from the racing machines of Husqvarna’s World Championship Teams.
Husqvarna keeps us on pins and needles in what concerns the launch of the 2009 TC 250, the bike that it’s suppose to be the lightest motocrosser yet to be produced. There are many chances that it will participate in the 2009 World Motocross Championship, but what we do know for sure is that it weighs 48.5 lbs.
Much of the massive weight reduction is due to the compactness of the four-stroke engine (13 percent smaller than everything else out there) featuring four titanium radial valves. Developed in collaboration with MX3 racer Andrea Bartolini, the new bike is expected to rule on the 2009 motocross scene.
But in order to do that, it will first have to be produced and rumors are that this autumn will bring racers face to face with it. Let’s hope so!
Featuring brand news chassis and bodywork surrounding a revised engine, the two motocross models rely on versatility and sharp handling in order to make a good impression for 2008 model year. Proof of these bikes being real racers is also the fact that they donate their brand new features to the TE 450 and TE 510 Enduro models.
