Husqvarna Motorcycles Unveil 2018 Motocross Range
Husqvarna Motorcycles has revealed their 2018 TC and FC motocross machines ‰ÛÒ a line-up of eight 2-stroke and 4-stroke models that combine cutting-edge technology with high-end componentry to offer riders of all ages one of the most efficient and enjoyable motocross ranges on the market.

Looking to maintain their position as one of the leading players in the motocross segment, in model year 2018 Husqvarna Motorcycles offer an all-new TC 85 together with seven TC and FC models that receive major updates in order to continue offering class-leading performance across the range. With the new from the ground up TC 85 setting new standards in its class, Husqvarna‰Ûªs full-size TC and FC machines feature a series of upgrades among which are new brakes, a new battery, new graphics and a high-grip seat cover.

Featuring high-tech componentry and rider-focused design, all eight new models are at the pinnacle of performance, design and ergonomics.

Introducing much of the same technology found across Husqvarna‰Ûªs range of full-size motocross machines, the new generation TC 85 raises the bar in the ultra-competitive 85cc class. With an all-new frame and state of the art WP suspension, young mini riders can focus on their 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. With an unchanged bore and stroke, it delivers improved performance and ease of use.

Key to the engine is a new power valve, which allows power delivery to be tailored simply and more effectively that before. The updated engine is housed inside a Cro-Mo steel frame that features all-new geometry for better handling and comfort. Offering increased torsional rigidity and less longitudinal stiffness the end result is overall enhanced agility and better high-speed stability.

Mirroring technology found in Husqvarna‰Ûªs full-size motocross range, the TC 85 features all new WP AER 43 split air and oil forks, together with a specific version of the new WP XPlor PDS shock. The new components offer a significant benefit in suspension performance, with adjustment in the forks made simpler thanks to the single air pressure valve for preload and easy access clickers for compression and rebound.
