The 2012 Husqvarna TC250 was developed using Husqvarna’s experience gained at the World MX2 Championship. The collaboration between the factory R&D technicians and the Ricci Racing team resulted into significant upgrades made to the engine and the mechanical design.

The motorcycle’s DOHC, 4-valve liquid-cooled, 49.5cc engine now features a modern design and is the most compact and lightest in its category. Among the numerous upgrades made to the new engine we want to note the completely redesigned twin cam valve train which comes with four titanium valves and a different piston.

The injection has also been completely changed, while the electronic ignition and the exhaust are new too.

Moreover, stability and maneuverability are improved by the new Kayaba monoshock with externally adjustable damping (high/low speed compression and rebound). The fork is also Kayaba and the preload has been changed to a firmer setting.

The 2012 Husqvarna CR125 has received a series of upgrades for 2012 which help it remain ahead of the pack.

The most significant upgrade is the new single cylinder two-stroke engine which is technically an updated version of the old one. The new unit features Mikuni TMX38 carburettor, V-Force reed valve, the same clutch bell-housing as the 4-stroke TC250, ultra-light exhaust and silencer and better protection of the filter box underside.

The engine is mounted on a semi-perimeter frame made of chrome-molybdenum steel tubing. The frame features a black paint job which gives the entire motorcycle a pretty aggressive stance. What’s more interesting however, is the fact that the frame has now reinforcement plates at the steering-head area.

As far as suspensions go, the 2012 Husqvarna CR125 comes with a 48 mm Kayaba fork, hydraulically adjustable for both rebound and compression damping, and a rear Sachs monoshock.

There aren’t many motorcycle manufacturers that can compete with Husqvarna’s 108 years history. The German manufacturer started to build motorcycles back in 1903 and since then, it continued to improve them and to develop new technologies.

Today’s Husqvarna enduros are considered among the best models in their class and the company continues to stay among the top dogs like it did 108 years ago.

The Husqvarna TE511 moves the company’s heritage further and rewards its rider with modern technologies and top notch performances. The motorcycle can deal effortless with any type of terrain as is powered by a potent 477.5 cc, DOHC, 4-valve liquid-cooled engine.

For 2012 Husqvarna’s technicians have focused mainly on ease of handling, and the new motorcycle has a new mapping for the Keihin injection (double flap 46 mm throttle body), developed specifically to make power supply from the single cylinder engine more linear and progressive.

Bimota showcased its 2013 lineup at the EICMA Motor Show which consists of 19 models. However, most of the bikes remained unchanged and are basically the same models presented in 2011.

Fortunately, the company has also come with a fresh model. To be honest it’s not 100% fresh as is technically a modified version of the 2011 Bimota DB10 B-Motorad.

The DBx is a rugged dual sport bike fitted with Öhlins TTX forks and four-way adjustable shock, Brembo monoblocs (2 x 300mm discs up front, 200mm in the back) and a lot of carbon fiber. Weighting only 385 lbs and powered by a 95 hp engine the new DBx is the lightest and most powerful bike in its class. With 19 inch front and 17 inch (18 inch optional ) rear wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires the Bimota DBx seems ready to conquer any terrain with poise.

Unfortunately, the new bike is only a concept developed to see test the public’s response. Judging by the way it looks and its sporty specs, the new bike could have a pretty bright future and we sincerely hope that Bimota will decide to launch it into production.
