Husqvarna TC250: Developed at world championship level

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.

The 2012 Husqvarna TC250 was completely revamped to exploit the experience gained during the European MX2 motocross championship by the Official Team. The bike has been radically redesigned, both as regards the engine and mechanical aspects. The engine has electronic fuel injection, with a Mikuni THB 45mm diameter batteryless throttle body.

To boost power at low and medium revs the air intake and exhaust systems have been redesigned and a nylon air intake has been introduced to the line between the filter housing and throttle body. The engine crank-casings have been modified and strengthened in the area near the attachment to the frame and the engine is protected by a new, more shock resistant, material.

HUSQVARNA SMR 449: A NEW BREED

The design of the new SMR449 outstrips that of other motard models and stands out immediately for its looks, exclusive layout and cutting-edge technology.

Husqvarna MotorcyclesDESIGN AND LAYOUT

The line is completely new: slim, svelte and refined. The single piece side panel runs from where traditionally the fuel tank would be, all the way back to the rear mudguard, allowing the rider free and unhindered movement. There is no chance of snagging boots or pants on the edges of the panels with this design.

Besides the aesthetic and ergonomic aspects, the new design also makes maintenance easier as the air filter, rear shock and throttle body can all be accessed with ease.

The long seat, which runs from the rear mudguard to the steering head, offers completely free longitudinal movement and has been modified compared to the Enduro version to improve rider comfort on longer journeys.

MASSES AND CENTER OF GRAVITY

The idea behind the SMR 449 is ‘mass centralisation’ – to keep the weight of the bike concentrated as close as possible to the centre of gravity and to design a chassis which adapts perfectly to the demands of use on the road and in the racing environment. This solution, which Husqvarna calls CTS (Coaxial Traction System), eliminates the variation in the length of the chain during rear suspension movement, minimising the effect of the final drive on the bikes handling.

The crux of this concept is the union of the rear wheel swing arm pivot point and the gearbox output shaft sprocket. This solution, which Husqvarna calls CTS (Coaxial Traction System), eliminates the variation in the length of the chain during rear suspension movement, minimising the effect of the final drive on the bikes handling.

MASSES AND CENTER OF GRAVITY

The idea behind the TC 449 is ‘mass centralisation’ – to keep the weight of the bike concentrated as close as possible to the centre of gravity and to design a chassis which adapts perfectly to the demands of competitive Enduro racing.

This solution, which Husqvarna calls CTS (Coaxial Traction System), eliminates the variation in the length of the chain during rear suspension movement, minimising the effect of the final drive on the bikes handling. This solution allows a longer swing arm whilst still retaining a wheelbase similar to our competitors, ensuring greater traction, which for Enduro means tangible advantages.

The chassis layout allows the modern DOHC engine to be mounted closer to the centre of the bike, whilst tilting the cylinder further forward allows a long and straight air intake path at the same time as keeping the centre of gravity as low as possible.
