SUBTLE REFINEMENTS AND A STRIKING NEW LOOK FOR ALL FULL-SIZED FC/TC AND FX/TX MACHINES

Delivering unmatched performance and adorned with Swedish-inspired dark blue and white graphics for a striking new look, Husqvarna Motorcycles North America, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its twelve-motorcycle strong, competition-focused 2-stroke and 4-stroke lineup of motocross and cross-country machines. Developed to create superior riding experiences for racers of all ages, the 2022 models provide uncompromised power-to-weight performance, together with leading ergonomics and aesthetics, and exceptional handling. 

Along with its striking new dark blue and white color scheme, Husqvarna Motorcycles has improved the durability of all full-sized FC/TC and FX/TX machines, with each model now featuring a Brembo hydraulic clutch system. The high-performance component is thoroughly race-tested to guarantee even wear, near maintenance-free operation and perfect action in all conditions.

Ensuring exceptional comfort and control, the 2022 models are equipped with class-leading WP Suspension, which delivers precise handling to riders of all skill levels. Highly adjustable WP XACT forks with AER technology feature a capsulated air spring and pressurized oil chamber for consistent damping across rough terrain. Complimenting the forks, new low-friction seals on the WP XACT shock ensure optimal rear-end performance on all surfaces.

With exceptional power and superior handling, the TC lineup remains the racers’ choice when it comes to 2-stroke motocross machinery. Featuring compact, powerful, high-performance engines, the TC 125 and TC 250 machines are modern motorcycles designed to deliver pure intensity and incredible on-track experiences in all conditions. Taking 2-stroke development to the next level, the TX 300i with innovative fuel injection feeding the 300 cc powerplant is the clear choice for off-road competition dominance.

Engineered to stay ahead of the field, Husqvarna Motorcycles’ 4-stroke machines feature lightweight and compact engines that produce class-leading power and ensure incredible maneuverability, together with progressive and consistent suspension. Exclusive to the FC 250 and FC 350 and the FX 350 machines, for 2022 a new friction bearing on the counter-balancer shaft increases the durability of the high-revving 4-stroke engines.

Sharing the same advanced platform as the motocross models, Husqvarna Motorcycles’ cross-country range continues to lead the segment with carefully considered cross-country specific features including large capacity fuel tanks, convenient side stands and a 21/18-inch D.I.D DirtStar wheel combination fitted with Dunlop Geomax AT81 tires.

2023 will see all new bikes, 2022 is the last year of this production bike, Watch KTM release their bikes with orange frames next Tuesday. Hoping to grab a 2022 250xcf. I doubt KTM will put out any significate changes themselves.

What are these mind blowing advancements riders are looking for? All the low hanging fruit has been picked developmentally and the bikes are damn good. I expect evolutionary changes from year to year that are very much incremental improvements as they learn more about performance from rag reviews, racing and enthusiast & dealer feedback. Not sure about you, but anything that adds much more cost isn't really welcomed. I can't ride my 19 to its full potential and it was 10k OTD on a DEAL from KTM. To each his own for sure.

  • Improvement in TPI design.
  • Mitigation of failed TPI CCP sensor.  
  • TPI ECU user adjustable off the showroom floor as they have promised:

"Q:  Presumably it is the same for two-stroke TPI models? We will see it for those models in the future?

A:   Yep, absolutely. As soon as we unlock some more of the options within the myKTM app it will be an option for the two and four stroke fuel injected EXC models. I think you will see it is quite impressive what we can do on the Enduro side as well."

The only place for white is number plate background. Come on Husqvarna The frame is an improvement over the black but white is one time use. Let’s help by listing your ideas here for Husky to see and consider. 
 

How about the front fender and frame the factory dark blue and fade the dark to light blue front to back. Rear fender sky blue. Yellow and black graphics trim it out. Yellow Anodized wheels and hubs.

Just a head’s up.

my 2018 tx300 was $8300 OTD and my buddy bought his 2019 TX300 for $8200 OTD (no sales taxes paid).

just for comparison so you are aware of the “deal” they are giving you. I have a little pull, but certainly not what you should as the guy running the biggest dirt bike social site on the innerwebs.

 

u deserve better 😜

im curious what TPI 2 strokes will be like 5 years from now. I am keeping my 2019 for a few years to see what "new" changes will be added. Maybe ill buy one when a dramatic new "7 speed" transmission comes out
