SCOOP: ANDREA BARTOLINI FINAL TEST TC 250 4 STROKE

Here comes the world's lightest single-cylinder engine

The 250 4-stroke engine is produced by Husqvarna factory close to Varese Lake. The engine is a 250cc 4-stroke type featuring 4 titanium radial valves. Its weight is only 22 kgs. and its dimensions are just around 13 percent lerss than the ones of its competitors. This made-in-Italy jewel will be produced initially in limited number by end of 2008, but Husqvarna is already considering the option of introducing it in the 2009 MX2 Motocross World Championship. The TC 250, more compact and thin – features that guarantee an amazing manoeuvrability – has a dry weight of 92 kgs. The attached images show Andrea Bartolini, Husqvarna factory test rider and the sole Italian rider who won a World Title in the 500cc class, during the last tests of the brand new bike that he cooperated to create together with Husqvarna R&D. Bartolini has also been a key figure in the recent MX3 World Championship successes conquered by Thomas Allier and Christophe Martin who are currently in chase of the World Title.

I think that new motor is evil. Judging from the first picture, it obviously makes your hair fall out when you get near it. Or maybe it's the red shirts? 👍

Kidding aside, It'll be interesting to see how durable this engine is.

Awesome looking engine.

Not sure I agree with the headline though

I was thinking the same thing right off the bat.

I used to fly model airplanes and have toyed with many different small motors.

For example, here's a link to a video of a four stroke/cycle engine much lighter than the one in the titled post

Here's one of an 0.049 running in diesel mode 👍

It's 44 lbs. How much does the current TC250 motor weight ?

I don't know in lbs, but the new motor weights 22kg and the tc250 -08 weights 26kg.

No... You just have to get out of the valley area and you'll be fine!👍
