2011 txc449

Recommended Posts

Been racing moto for 20 years, 6'1" and 170lbs. Intermediate Vet rider. Been doing the woods thing for a few years for recreation up north in Upper Michigan and I like it alot. Just got off a '08 KTM250XCF. I've been really intrigued by the pricing on the leftover '11 Husqvarna TXC449. How does this bike handle in the woods, 2nd gear stuff. The woods up here flow quite well, does get tight every now and then and there are connecting trails that let you open them up. I've heard pretty good things about this bike but I'm kind of leary on the woods end of it. If anyone has one of these, could you give a report or any recommendations. I don't really want the TE, more interested inthe TXC, maybe put on a light later. It's definitely a good time to buy with these prices. Let me know what you think and thank you.

I love mine for NW woods. It is still a 450 for if you looking for a tight woods specialist it is not the ultimate as smaller bike usually do better in those conditions but that said it is far from a handful to me and a great do it all woods to open bike. I flip bikes pretty fast but just love this one for some reason and do see it going anywhere anytime soon. A very accommodating bike that seems to work for you a lot. Smooth motor, EZ handling, nicly balanced and lighter feeling in motion. Great overall bike.
