2012 Husqvarna CR50
HUSQVARNA CR AND SM 50
THE NEW MINI CROSS AND MOTARD
The essence of a real dirt bike and
supermotard in miniature. This is the nature of the
new Husqvarna CR and SM 50, the “mini”
that have everything you need to make your debut as
a real rider.
Liquid cooled two stroke engines, disc
brakes, adjustable suspensions, steel chassis with
the same shape as the Husqvarna racing bike, single
cylinder engine with dual clutch transmission depending
on the driver's expertise and competitiveness.
The line is the same as the Husqvarna
dirt bike and Supermotard; with the classic white/red
colours for the CR version and white for the SM one,
just like the bike that Antoine Meo rides in the Enduro
world championship and Adrien Chareyre rides in Supermoto.
The framework is in CrMo steel tubes
with rectangular, circular and oval section; the most
visible section as it connects the upper beam to the
hub. The rear frame is detachable.
The fork is also in CrMo steel and
supports a dual piston brake caliper in forged and
anodized aluminium. The rear brake disc has a diameter
of 140 mm while the front one has a diameter of 160
mm with race replica "daisy" design.
Front safety is guaranteed by a system
with Formula radial pump in forged and anodized aluminium
with adjustable aluminium lever.
The handlebar, with practical Husqvarna
personalized pads, has a diameter of 22 mm.
As regards suspension, the Marzocchi
fork has 32 mm diameter piston rods and 185 mm stroke.
The Sachs shock absorber has a wheel stroke of 200
mm , adjustable spring preload and Hydraulic rebound.
The front wheel is 12” the back
one is 10” with aluminium rims, while SM version
has a different colour, different sized front wheel
(10”) and racing slick tyres.
As regards the engine, both versions
are fitted with a liquid cooled two stroke 50 cc engine
which supplies 11.2 HP at 10,500 rpm. The speed ratio
is single gear with adjustable centrifugal dual clutch
transmission: one configuration for learner riders
and one for experts.
The carburettor is a 19 mm Dell’Orto
PHBG. The fuel tank has a capacity of 2.7 litres.
Thanks to the stability offered by the steel framework,
the over-dimensioned suspensions and the disc brake
system, the CR/SM 50 sets new standards in terms of
safety and at the same time represents the starting
point for tomorrow’s motocross , enduro and
