Comfortable, agile and reliable the 2014 Husqvarna TC 350 is ready to deal with anything you ask of it. The motorcycle weights only 97.8 Kg and is propelled by a 249 cc, 1 cylinder 2 stroke, water cooled engine with reed intake and exhaust control. The 249 cc unit is combined with a kick starter and its power is transferred to the rear wheel by means of a five speed claw shifted transmission with DDS clutch.
The 2014 Husqvarna TC 250’s speed is kept in leash by a Brembo braking system that includes front and rear disc brakes with four-pot calipers up front and one-pot calipers out back.
Once on board, you are met by an ergonomically designed seat which is tightly wrapped around the engine and frame. The handlebar was also carefully designed to deliver a sporty riding position.

High intensity thrills
Tremendous power and agility of the TC 250’s state-of-the-art engine and chassis guarantee unbeatable handling, stability and overall performance. The incredible power-to-weight ratio of the TC 250 makes it easy to control the exhilarating power delivery of the strong 2-stroke engine. Only the best components make it onto the TC 250, including a DDS clutch with Brembo hydraulic system, a Boyesen high performance intake reed valve and the best brakes in Motocross.
2014 Husqvarna TC 250 Features and Benefits:
The powerful yet tractable TC 250 engine features an exhaust power valve to boost power and torque along the entire rev range. The Boyesen reed valve guarantees excellent response and durability. A precise 5-speed gearbox transfers all the TC 250’s power to the ground. The engine characteristics can be further tailored to rider preference by varying the spring stiffness in the exhaust valve.
The cylinder head has been designed for throttle response and torque and is perfectly mated to the power valve for optimal power delivery in every circumstance.
The ignition can be modified according to track layout and rider preference. The CDI unit features two ignition curves that can be switched by changing the plug connection or via the optional Husky Power map select switch.
An innovative DDS (damped diaphragm steel) clutch system is fitted to the TC 250 to achieve smooth action and easy control. The exclusive characteristics of this system include a diaphragm spring instead of coil springs, an integrated damping system for better traction and durability, and a strong inner hub for increased stability. Riders of all levels will appreciate the precise Brembo hydraulic system for perfect clutch modulation.
High tech chassis:
The priority in designing the frame was to meet strict performance goals while maintaining optimal torsional rigidity, longitudinal stiffness and extreme lightness, while offering excellent feedback and instilling complete confidence in the rider. To achieve their goals, the engineers designed the lightweight chromium molybdenum frame with precise longitudinal flex that helps absorb impacts from the rear wheel, working together with the suspension for better comfort and giving the rider greater feedback. The torsional rigidity, on the other hand, has been optimised to enhance turn-in, sharp handling and stability even on the roughest terrain, giving the rider complete confidence in finding his lines and increasing his pace lap after lap.
For the first time in Husqvarna’s centennial history, the engineers designed a composite rear subframe united with a chromoly frame. The three-piece composite subframe, made of high strength polyamide with a precision injection moulded production process, has been designed to offer stiffness while flexing more than an aluminium subframe, complementing the flex characteristics of the frame in order to offer optimum rider feedback and feeling in all conditions. The lightweight design offers engineers unlimited opportunities in integrating features such as all the electronics and the airbox.
The design of the swingarm has been optimised according to the stiffness characteristics of the rest of the chassis. In order to give maximum rider confidence and comfort, while making the most of the Husqvarna engine characteristics in terms of traction and power, the aluminium swingarm has specific flex characteristics. The single-component casting process eliminates welding and guarantees consistent behaviour and quality. Strong but light, the beautifully styled aluminium cast swingarm provides perfect stability and safety.
Exceptional stopping power is guaranteed by the latest generation of Brembo brakes, featuring a new master cylinder and floating calipers in combination with 260mm wave discs at the front and 220mm wave discs at the rear. The perfectly placed controls allow for optimal feel and balance under extreme conditions.
WP suspension stands for top quality and offers the best performance levels. Adjustability is a key factor in tailoring a motorcycle according to varying requirements. With the WP forks, the ease of changing clicker settings is as simple as a twist of a dial, allowing all riders to adapt the rebound and compression damping settings to their own riding styles and track conditions. The 48mm closed cartridge front fork, matched with CNC machined black triple clamps, feature 300mm of travel and ensure exceptional handling and feel of the front end, thanks to accurate and consistent damping characteristics of the closed cartridge technology.
The high performance rear shock made by WP suspension is adjustable in rebound and high/low speed compression, and guarantees excellent comfort and world class damping. Combined with the white colour of the frame, the white spring gives the all-new Husqvarna Motocross bikes a striking appearance.
The Husqvarna DCC (Dual Compression Control) linkage system has excellent characteristics in fast and flowing sections. Due to its progressive characteristics it takes big hits in its stride, offering great rider comfort in all situations, even on the roughest track sections and the biggest jumps. The versatile Husqvarna DCC linkage system is sure to meet the need of riders of all levels, with a consistent, confidence-inspiring and light feeling chassis in every situation.
CNC machined triple clamps
As on the other major components of the chassis, the CNC machined triple clamps have precisely engineered flex designed into them that allows the fork tubes to flex under stress. This gives the rider more feeling under braking and on landing off jumps. They are designed to evenly distribute the clamping force on the fork leg, maximizing contact area for optimal sensitivity and minimum friction. In addition, the handlebar can be mounted in 4 different positions.
110 year heritage:
Traditional Husqvarna white, blue and yellow adorns the newly designed Motocross range, enhancing the modern styling.
Tightly wrapped around the engine and frame, Husqvarna’s new bodywork is designed to connect the rider’s body to the bike, for a perfect fit of man and machine, allowing for total control in all conditions for the most diverse body sizes.
Tapered 827 Renthal Fatbar handlebars feature a Renthal bar pad and are mated with Husqvarna grips for excellent control of the bike.
Standard equipment includes handguards and map switch, as well as some of the best components on offer in the motocross segment, such as Brembo brakes and hydraulic clutch. For the die hard enthusiasts, riding pleasure and visual appeal can be further enhanced by a complete range of Husky Power accessories.
