Husqvarna’s just released their 2023 iteration of motocross machines to the motorcycle community – and the big refresh boasts every unit as being “designed from the ground up with innovative engineering techniques.”
It’s a fancy way of saying that these bikes now have a new heart, new WP suspension, fresh bodywork, and a few other perks to keep the brand in fighting shape for the coming competitions.
Let’s dig a little deeper, shall we?
The TC 125 and TC 250
Class-Leading Power and Rideability
With these two competitive siblings already known as the leading two-strokes in the market, fuel injection and the nifty addition of a ‘start’ button complement an already premium package to provide trigger-happy hooning on the daily.
The FC 250, FC 350 and FC 450
New Hearts, New Tech
Both the four-stroke FC 250 and FC 350 feature a new heart. She’s lighter, faster, and will, according to Superbike News, provide better handling – all great ticks in the competition docket and a great addition to “the latest in technology and electronic rider aids.”
The FC 450 has also had her ticker tampered, with the engine being repositioned to “improve mass centralism.”
All told, here’s the list of other new stuff you can expect for Huskie’s 2023 Motocross range:
