2012 Husqvarna TC250
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
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, such as updates to the engine,
a real jewel at only 22 kg! and the mechanical design.
All of the modifications will be immediately appreciated
by riders at every level and experience.
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 2012 new version TC250 has also had an
aesthetic makeover, with anodised silver rims and
the frame is now black with InMould graphics, integrated
into the plastic and absolutely resistant to washing.
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 Husqvarna
engineers radically redesigned the layout and changed
numerous components. 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 four totally new titanium valves
and a different piston, the increase in power and
torque is considerable, so more horsepower reaches
The injection has also been completely changed (now
Keihin, with 46 mm throttle body), the electronic
ignition is Kokusan, and the exhaust is also new.
It comes fitted with ‘Power Bomb’ on the
manifold with the silencer from the specialists, Akrapovic.
