The 2018 spring riding season is barely started, but Husqvarna has already announced its 2019 mini motocross lineup, with three bikes in this year’s range.
All three bikes are liquid-cooled two-strokes, with kickstarter and disc brakes front and rear, with steel or chrome-moly steel frame.
The TC50 is the most entry-level of these bikes, with a centrifugal clutch for easy shifting and WP suspension (!), featuring 205 mm of travel up front (35 mm WP AER forks, air-adjustable) and 185 mm of travel in the rear. The rear subframe is steel. Dry weight is 41.5 kg.
The TC65 has a larger motor with manual six-speed transmission and hydraulic clutch. The TC65 has 35 mm AER forks as well, but with 215 mm of travel (also air-adjustable), and 270 mm of travel in rear. Rear subframe is aluminum; dry weight is 53 kg.
The TC85 has WP’s AER 43 forks, with adjustable compression via fork-top clickers and air pump. Add in a fully-adjustable XPlor PDS rear shock (also by WP), and you’ve got pretty legit suspension for a mini-MXer; as is becoming common in more advanced dirt bikes, the TC85’s forks have a split design, with damping oil in one leg and air in the other. Husky also included a self-cleaning gear selector and footpegs that are also supposed to prevent crud from building up.. This bike is available in 17-14 or 19-16 wheel sizes, depending what size your MX-riding offspring needs. The rear subframe is aluminum, dry weight is 67 or 68 kg, depending which wheel size you get (the 19-16 bike weighs more due to larger wheels).
We haven’t seen an official MSRP yet, but the bikes will be available at Husky dealers in June.
