Husqvarna’s latest factory two-stroke race bike was unveiled at the Motocross of Nations in Germany.
Husqvarna unveiled the very first new-generation Husky to be built – a Factory Racing edition TC300 two-stroke – at the Motocross of Nations, Teutschenthal, Germany, on September 28.
The new TC300 will compete next year in the newly formed European Motocross 300cc Two-Stroke Championship.
The bike on show at Teutschenthal was the brand new TC250 two-stroke, upgraded to 300cc with accessories soon to be available from the Husky Power range of special parts. Decorated with official Husqvarna Factory Racing graphics, it will feature numerous technical upgrades, among which will be a carbon fiber rear subframe, a full Akrapovic exhaust system, CNC-machined hubs and triple clamps, and WP suspension.
Husqvarna says it will actively support the European Motocross 300cc Two-Stroke Championship, and the wider use of two-stroke engine technology. The company, recently purchased by KTM, says it is fully committed to two-stroke power.
“Husqvarna is promoting and supporting the new European 300cc two-stroke championship because we think it will be a great class for talented, young, racers,” said Pit Beier, head of KTM/Husqvarna racing. It offers the right balance between great racing and costs. At present we are not involved in the European Championship with a direct factory team, but we are in contact with many riders, through our subsidiaries, and we’ve had a great number of requests regarding our two-stroke bikes for this new championship. In the near future you will see many of our two-stroke bikes competing in not only this exciting, new championship but at race tracks all over the world.”
