Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to unveil their 2017 TC 50 and TC 65 models – two new from the ground up mini motocross machines that share the same levels of premium quality and advanced technology as featured across the brand’s latest motocross line-up.
Entering the 50 cc and 65 cc mini bike sector for the first time in its new era, Husqvarna has modelled the all-new TC 50 and TC 65 machines on their full-sized motocross bikes.
Equipped with modern and compact 2-stroke engines and featuring the latest in chassis and suspension technology, both models set the benchmark in terms of performance and handling for junior motorcycles.
Allowing aspiring youngsters to experience the thrill of riding their very first real competition motorcycles, the new Husqvarna TC mini models are the perfect beginning for any promising, young motocross enthusiasts. Together with the recently introduced 2017 Husqvarna TC 85, they form a complete range of premium mini motocross motorcycles for riders of all age groups and skill levels.
HUSQVARNA TC 50
Featuring the same stylish look as Husqvarna’s full size motocross bikes, the new TC 50 features a well-considered ergonomic package to perfectly suit the stars of tomorrow. Superior quality and attention to detail are incorporated into the TC 50 to make it a truly premium 50 cc motocross machine.
With mass centralisation a key design feature, the modern 2-stroke engine uses a 3-shaft design that brings the crankshaft near the centre of gravity. To make things even simpler for young riders, the engine is fitted with an automatic centrifugal clutch.
Specifically designed to match the performance characteristics of the TC 50 engine, the exhaust is made using a three-dimensional stamping process for added durability. Available from Husqvarna Accessories is a power reduction kit, which brings peak performance down to 5.5 hp for absolute beginners.
Fitted with the revolutionary WP AER 35 front forks and a fully adjustable WP monoshock, the TC 50 features the latest in suspension and chassis technology. Modelled after Husqvarna’s full size motocross machines, the bodywork of the TC 50 offers the same contact points and ergonomic characteristics in a smaller scale.
