The return of Husqvarna to the MX World Championship has already produced its first results. The experience gained at the World MX2 Championship has now been incorporated into the new Husqvarna 2012 model TC250. The collaboration between the factory R&D technicians and the Ricci Racing team led to the development of important updates, which bring the TC250 to the top of its category. Both to the engine – a real jewel at only 22 kg! - and the mechanical design, and all modifications which will be immediately appreciated by riders of every level and experience. Just try it.
Husqvarna TC250: Developed at world championship level
More rigid frame, Kayaba shock
The steel frame is made of tubing with a variety of cross sections, strengthened and made more rigid with new plates (chrome-moly 25CrMo4 steel) at the steering-head. Stability and manoeuvrability are noticeably improved by the new monoshock, now a Kayaba, with externally adjustable damping (high/low speed compression and rebound). The fork is also Kayaba (leg diameter 48 mm) and the preload has been changed to a firmer setting. The new 2012 version of the TC250 has also had an aesthetic makeover, the frame is now black, InMould graphics (integrated into the plastic and absolutely resistant to washing), and anodised silver rims.
Engine:new cylinder head
The Husqvarna 250 cc four-stroke engine is a very modern design, and remains the most compact and lightest in its category. But when you want to provide the best, you can never rest on your laurels. So our engineers radically redesigned the layout and changed numerous suppliers. The improved performance of the new TC250 engine is the fruit of these radical changes. First of all the twin cam valve train was completely redesigned! With a totally new design, four titanium valves and a different piston, the increase in power and torque is considerable: more horsepower reaches the wheels.
The injection has also been completely changed (now Keihin, with 46 mm throttle body), the electronic ignition is Kokusan, and the exhaust is new too. It comes fitted with ‘Power Bomb’ on the manifold and silencer from the specialists, Akrapovic.
