HUSQVARNA MOTORCYCLES UNVEILS ITS NEW GENERATION OF MOTOCROSS AND CROSS-COUNTRY MACHINERY

DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP WITH INNOVATIVE ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES THE FC AND TC MOTOCROSS AND FX AND TX CROSS-COUNTRY MODELS CONTINUE TO OUTPERFORM THE COMPETITION

Continuing to deliver true motocross performance, the all-new 2023 Husqvarna Motorcycles TC and FC models further enhance the on-track riding experiences of all riders. Highly capable of competing at the top levels of racing as standard, technical advancements across the five-motorcycle-strong range include new engines, suspension, frames, swingarms, and bodywork. Each of the 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines receive tailored developments for maximum performance.

Taking charge in the off-road segment is the all-new, technologically advanced cross-country TX and FX models, which share the innovative platforms found on the 2023 motocross range. With off-road suited features such as large capacity fuel tanks, cross-country specific settings in the WP XACT suspension, convenient, newly designed side stands and a 21/18-inch D.I.D DirtStar wheel set fitted with Dunlop MX33 fronts and AT81 rears, this new generation of TX and FX machines is ready to take off-road riding and racing to the next level of performance and control.

Strengthening their positions as the leading 2-strokes on the market, the TC 125 and TC 250 are now equipped with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) and E-Start as standard. The throttle body fuel injection system ensures class-leading power and rideability, as well as enhancing reliability, and lowering overall running costs. Both machines are now easily started with the simple press of a button. These significant enhancements underline the continued evolution of these popular models, which set the benchmark for premium motocross machinery in the highly competitive 2-stroke segment. Enjoying the same, innovative throttle body fuel injection for 2023, the all-new TX 300 continues to lead the way in off-road 2-stroke development.

The 2023 FC 250, FC 350 and FX 350 are powered by all-new 4-stroke engines that are designed to be faster, lighter, and play a vital role in enhancing overall handling. Utilizing the latest technology and electronic rider aids, these models remain at the forefront of motocross and cross-country machinery development alongside the FC 450 and FX 450, which feature a revised and repositioned engine to improve mass centralization.

All machines in the motocross and cross-country line-up are engineered to outperform the competition. Expertly assembled with high quality components for enhanced performance, reliability, and customization, these models are equipped with WP suspension for unsurpassed comfort and straight-line stability. The new WP XACT 48 mm front forks offer more progressive end-of-stroke damping thanks to an improved hydrostop. In addition, the WP XACT rear shock is designed with a refined main piston for improved comfort and features tool-free adjusters for fast setting changes. Complete with ProTaper handlebars, a Brembo clutch, and Dunlop tires, each model is equipped with a map select switch for selectable engine maps and a personalized riding experience.
