TC 85
Raising the bar in the ultra-competitive 85cc class, the new generation TC 85 features much of the same technology found in the successful full-size Husqvarna motocross line-up. With an all-new frame and state of the art WP suspension, young mini riders can focus on performance with total confidence. Featuring a new engine that delivers a broader and more controllable power delivery the new TC 85 offers top-level performance and durability for the stars of tomorrow.

Frame

Professionally crafted by WP Performance Systems, the Chromium Molybdenum steel frame is constructed using hydro formed tubes joined by precision robot welding to ensure the highest level of consistent quality.
The frame employs an all-new geometry aimed at tailoring flex characteristics for improved handling and comfort. Together with the new laterally-mounted cylinder head mountings the result is an increase in torsional rigidity of 7%, with longitudinal stiffness being reduced by 25%. This allows the frame to move in harmony with the suspension soaking up big hits while delivering improved agility and high-speed stability.

Additionally, the frame is fitted with new “no dirt” footpegs that prevent the build-up of dirt collected through deep ruts and muddy terrain. The simple but effective self-cleaning system ensures the footpegs return to their original position providing complete control in all conditions.

The frame is finished off in a highly durable white powder coating with standard frame protectors.

The 250cc 2-stroke engine has long offered the best combination of unsurpassed power and lightweight construction. The simplicity and low maintenance costs of the 2-stroke motor has made it a favourite amongst motocross riders for generations. The TC 250 engine features the latest 2-stroke technology aimed at centralising rotating masses and reducing vibration while delivering the highest level of performance in its class.

Cylinder

The 66.4 mm bore cylinder features an innovative power valve system that delivers a smooth and controlled power throughout the RPM range. This can be further customized by simply changing two springs supplied, altering the power delivery for different track conditions and rider preference.

– Cylinder and power valve – Smooth and controllable power delivery that can be customized

Engine casings

The TC 250 engine is designed with mass centralisation as a key theme. As a result the lightweight, die-cast engine casings are developed to house the shaft arrangements in the perfect position, centralizing oscillating mass and improving rideability.

– Engine casings – shaft arrangements positioned for mass centralisation

Counter balancer shaft

The TC 250 features a laterally mounted counter balancer shaft. This shaft significantly reduces vibrations resulting in a smoother, more comfortable ride with less rider fatigue.

– Counter balancer shaft – significantly reduced vibration

Carburetor

The TC 250 features a 38 mm flat slide Mikuni TMX carburetor. With an updated setting for MY18, the carburetor provides a smooth and controllable power delivery with optimal performance over the entire RPM range.

– 38mm Mikuni carburetor – improved power deliver, optimal performance

Gearbox

The TC 250 features a 5-speed gearbox with motocross specific ratios. Additionally, precise and easy shifting is guaranteed thanks to the no-dirt shift lever, which prevents the build-up of dirt from blocking the step plate in the toughest conditions.

– 5-speed gearbox – precise and easy shifting
– No-dirt gear lever – prevents dirt build up and blockage

Clutch

The TC 250 features a DDS (Damped Diaphragm Steel) clutch. What this means is the clutch uses a diaphragm spring instead of the more common coil spring design, which allows for a much lighter clutch action. This design also allows for a damping system that increases both traction and durability.
This combined with the Magura hydraulic system guarantees a light and modular clutch feeling, which is almost maintenance and adjustment free.

– DDS clutch – light action with integrated damping system, increased traction and reliability
– Magura hydraulic system – light and modular clutch action, almost maintenance free

TC 125

Engine

With 40 hp, and an overall weight of just 17.2 kg, the 125cc engine indicates constant development in 2-stroke technology by Husqvarna. The lightweight engine is designed to provide more torque than current 125cc 2–stroke engines making the TC 125 easier to ride for both beginners and seasoned professionals. Sticking with the overall theme, the TC 125 engine is designed to centralize rotating mass for optimal operation with the chassis resulting in a light and agile handling feel.

– Latest generation 2-stroke – 40 hp, 17.2 kg
– Mass-centralisation – significant benefits in handling and maneuverability

Cylinder and piston

The cylinder features a 54 mm bore. Combined with an innovative power valve design, the 125cc motor embraces every last horsepower the Teflon coated piston can provide.

– Redesigned cylinder and power valve – 360 g lighter, improved performance and cooling

Crankshaft

The crankshaft is manufactured to be as light as possible and is balanced perfectly to reduce vibrations. The component is also positioned to ensure that the rotational mass created has very little effect on the handling of the motorcycle.

– Lightweight crankshaft – very little vibration

Crankcases

High-pressure die cast production processes keep the overall weight to a minimum, resulting in thin wall thickness. The historical Husqvarna logo adorns the bronze finished crankcase covers.

– High pressure die cast production process – thin walls resulting in light weight, while maintaining strength

Carburetor

The TC 125 features a 38 mm flat slide Mikuni TMX carburetor. With an updated setting for MY18, the carburetor provides a smooth and controllable power delivery with optimal performance over the entire RPM range.

Gearbox

The 6-speed gearbox features specific motocross gearing while the gear lever features an innovative tip design that prevents dirt build-up.

– 6-speed gearbox – specific motocross gearing

Exhaust

The exhaust has been designed to offer optimum performance. Working together with the chassis design it offers the best possible centre of gravity and weight distribution.

– Exhaust – best possible performance with the best handling characteristics
