The Husqvarna TC 250 was especially developed to race in the motocross MX2 class. The really good part is that’s also available in showrooms. The 2013 model is fitted with a series of modern technologies developed using the company’s experience in the MX2 World Championship.
One of the most important upgrades was made to the engine. The 2013 powerplant features a new cooling system which secures a constant temperature, a magnet in the crankcase oil plug as well as an improved throttlebody.
Another new feature offered for the 2013 model is the fresh handlebar protector which improves the rider’s safety. We also need o send a shout at the new softer handgrips which are now glued on the handlebar.
The stopping power is assured by a front 260 mm fixed disc with hydraulic control and double piston floating caliper and a rear 240 mm fixed disc with hydraulic control and single floating caliper.

Husqvarna Motorcycles is also offering a highly competitive machine to race in the motocross MX2 class in the form of the 2013 model TC 250R. Drawing on the brand’s MX2 World Championship experience, the development engineers at Husqvarna Motorcycles succeeded in incorporating a raft of technical improvements into series production to give the TC 250R even more punch. Just as on the Enduro models, the advances to the engine are documented by the “R” tagged onto the model name.
The engine form last year received additional improvements. A new cooling system secures a constant temperature, the magnet in the crankcase oil plug catches small iron parts which makes the whole engine more reliable. Additionally an improved throttlebody allowed to delete the hot-start-lever from the handlebar.
The new TC 250R also comes with more serial equipment which improves the usability. The handlebar protector improves the safety of the rider, the new softer handgrips are now glued on the handlebar which makes it almost impossible to lose them. Also the final drive received improvements with a complete new designed chain giude.
