Husqvarna has officially unveiled its minicycle motocross range for 2023 with race-tested Maxxis tyres and a fresh new look leading the changes to TC85, TC65 and TC50 models, while the TC65 also comes in for updates to its clutch and braking componentry.

For more details, here’s an excerpt from Husqvarna’s PR about what’s new on the three little two-stroke models, which start to arrive in Oz and NZ from July…

2023 TC50

The perfect entry-level machine for youngsters looking to step into the exciting world of motocross, the TC50 is a pure competition motorcycle equipped with high quality components and the latest in two-stroke technology. With easily adjustable, best-in-class WP suspension, waved brake discs, and an advanced chassis designed specifically for youth racers, the TC50 is a complete racing machine.

2023 TC65

Benefitting from the most upgrades in Husqvarna Motorcycles’ 2023 minicycle line-up is the TC65.

Already at the top of its class in terms of high-quality components, performance and handling, the 85cc model is now fitted with Maxxis MX-ST tyres, which give all young riders an enhanced riding experience. Striking new graphics complete the changes for this competition-focused machine in 2023.
