Husqvarna Motorcycles announces all-new MY17 motocross line-up

 

May 10, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to introduce the 2017 TC and FC range of motocross models – one of the most sophisticated range of 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines on the market today.

 

Using their global engagement in top-level racing to further improve the entire motocross line-up, together with extensive research and development Husqvarna Motorcycles’ 2017 TC 125, TC 250, FC 250, FC 350, FC 450 and TC 85 models remain true to the brand’s commitment to deliver premium motorcycles with state-of-the-art technology.

2017 TC 250 Engine

 


Featuring all-new WP Performance Systems AER 48 front forks, traction control, a new from the ground up TC 250 2-stroke as well as further advances in engine management and high-tech componentry throughout, Husqvarna Motorcycles offer machinery that supports riders in all situations.

 

2-STROKE FANS REJOICE
Considerable energy has gone into the development of the all-new Husqvarna TC 250, which together with the smaller capacity TC 85 and TC 125 machines make up the complete line-up of 2-stroke models.

The 2017 TC 250 represents the continued development of the historic 250 cc 2-stroke within Husqvarna’s motocross line-up. With a significant reduction in overall weight together with improved agility it features a completely redesigned, lightweight engine that offers increased efficiency, optimised centralisation of masses as well as substantial vibration reduction. The TC 250 is now smaller, lighter and smoother.

A favourite among 125 cc 2-stroke lovers, the TC 125 is designed having premium performance and quality in mind. The all-new WP AER 48 forks, the new Mikuni TMX 38 mm carburettor and the Magura hydraulic clutch all ensure the 2017 TC 125 remains one step ahead of the competition.

 

Built for future motocross champions Husqvarna’s TC 85 receives new, stylish colours and graphics, which aesthetically bring it even closer to its larger capacity siblings.

 

THE FUTURE IS NOW
Introducing further engine developments, Husqvarna Motorcycles ensure all motors continue to set a higher benchmark in terms of reduced weight, design and performance, in all categories.

Across the 4-stroke model range the refined Keihin engine management system is designed to process data faster, offering an all-new traction control for 2017. Analysing throttle input and sudden increases in RPM, the sensors registers any loss of grip to reduce power to the rear wheel, ensuring maximum traction. With integrated launch control for perfect starts, the EMS also features selectable engine maps via a switch on the handlebars.

 

The Keihin 44 mm throttle body is positioned accordingly to ensure the most efficient flow into the combustion chamber. Thanks to the elimination of a throttle linkage, the response to any throttle movement is more immediate.

Ideally matching the characteristics of each engine while keeping their overall weight to a minimum all exhaust systems comply with the necessary FIM noise limits for motocross racing. Header pipes on the 4-strokes feature resonance chambers for improved power delivery, with the FC 450 having its resonance chamber integrated into the header pipe.

All 4-stroke models come with electric starters as standard, which are combined with lightweight and powerful Li-Ion batteries for easy and reliable starting.

 

REACHING NEW HEIGHTS

 

Built by WP Performance Systems the hydro-formed chromium molybdenum frame is designed with calculated parameters of longitudinal and torsional flex to ensure superior handling and easy manoeuvrability. To further enhance suspension functionality and improve overall chassis feeling all 4-strokes feature new, lightweight aluminium engine mounts.

Developed to perfectly match the chassis characteristics are the all-new WP AER 48 front forks, featured across the new 2017 Husqvarna range. Super lightweight, easily adjustable and offering an incredible amount of feedback to the rider no matter the conditions, the WP AER 48 forks reach new heights in terms of suspension technology.

 

Unique to Husqvarna’s models is the three-piece composite subframe made of 30% carbon fibre, which as well as being incredibly strong weighs just 1.4 kg.

 

Attached to the frame is an innovative self-cleaning footpeg mount preventing dirt from building up in muddy conditions or when riding in deep ruts. As a result the footpegs always springs back to their original position.

 

A high-quality clutch system made by Magura ensures near maintenance-free operation and perfect clutch engagement in every condition. The ODI lock-on grips come together with a pioneering throttle assembly with easy free-play adjustment and the ability to alter throttle progression by changing a cam.

Finally the WP radiators, 7-litre polythene fuel tanks, the tool-less airbox design and the DID alloy rims with CNC machined hubs ensure that the new 2017 Husqvarna motocross line-up is among the most advanced on the market.
The new Husqvarna MY17 motocross range will be available worldwide from June 2016 at all authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealers.

I just bought the '16 TE 300 2 days before the press release of the new '17 bike. Has anyone heard if the new bike lives up to the hype before I put my first miles on my 16'? Considering trading it in new for this new bike or selling at a slight loss if this new bike is that good.

      I've been looking for new plastics for my 2009 Husqvarna SM510R everywhere online. Just wondering if anyone knows where I can find some.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
