Aleksandr Tonkov To Debut New Husqvarna MX2 Factory Race Bike This Weekend

Posted:

Husqvarna Motorcycles have announced that they will unveil and compete on new 250cc factory machinery at round four of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

Wilvo Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Aleksandr Tonkov will race aboard the new bike from the first European Grand Prix onwards.

As part of the continuous development within Husqvarna‰Ûªs motorsport department, the new FC 250 machine showcases a totally new design. Improved in every detail, the new bike has numerous benefits. Lighter, slimmer, with reduced mass within the engine and featuring redesigned bodywork, Husqvarna will maximise their position at the sharp end of the results.

‰ÛÏEveryone within Husqvarna‰Ûªs motorsport department is truly excited by the opportunity to compete with a completely new motorcycle in this early stage of only our second season of racing." Robert Jonas ‰ÛÒ Head of Husqvarna Motorsports said.

"The new 250cc factory bike is lighter, more powerful, and very easy to handle. This offers us a great technical base from which we hope to go on and win championships.‰Û
Focusing on the chassis, technicians have developed a new, cutting edge frame. Lighter and stronger than the previous model, the frame design improves torsional rigidity and decreases longitudinal stiffness. The result is better flexibility and feedback to the rider.

The engine features extensive improvements. A fresh design has improved centralised mass and performance. A new fuel injection system and new battery ensures Husqvarna‰Ûªs MX2 factory bike will be even more competitive on the racetrack.

Totally redesigning the bodywork and plastics from the ground up, the smoother lines and more compact design ensure the bike is as slim as possible.
