1 month ago | Words: Matt Bernard | Photos: Husqvarna

Husqvarna Motorcycles has unveiled its highly anticipated 2025 line-up, showcasing a bolstered selection of seven bikes for the upcoming model year. This latest release boasts numerous technical enhancements, including revamped frames, reinforced engine mounts, redesigned bodywork, and fine-tuned suspension settings. Notably, the 2025 range welcomes two dynamic additions in the form of the TC150 and TC300, both offering the thrill of two-stroke power. Dive into the details provided by Husqvarna below.

Based upon the class-leading TC125, the new TC150 bridges the gap between the TC125 and the TC250. Offering improved overall power and a considerable boost to the torque, the TC150 is the perfect machine for racers looking to gain an advantage when competing against 250cc four-stroke machines. Assembled with race-tested components throughout and providing all riders with confidence-inspiring handling, the TC150 certainly strengthens the two-stroke line-up available from Husqvarna Motorcycles.

The same philosophy applies to the new TC300. Using the proven foundations of the TC250, the 300cc model is capable of racing with 450cc four-strokes, thanks to its versatile engine that delivers exceptional torque and peak performance. Undoubtedly, the TC300 sets a new benchmark for motocross machinery, delivering the ultimate combination of unsurpassed power and rideability within a lightweight construction.

The FC250 and FC350 continue to be powered by state-of-the-art, DOHC engines that are designed to be lightweight and play a vital role in elevating overall handling. Together with the FC450 – the flagship motocross machine manufactured by Husqvarna Motorcycles – all four-stroke models feature the latest technology and electronic rider aids for superior on track performance.

The latest generation frame ensures all seven models offer exceptional handling in 2025. With material reduced around the upper shock mount and at the front of the chassis, the revisions were introduced to enhance flex characteristics, reduce weight, and improve cornering without compromising straight-line stability. Additionally, and exclusive to the three four-stroke machines, new engine mounts aid the agility of each motorcycle.

Further chassis revisions include new suspension settings, linkage seals, and a smaller diameter linkage bolt to save weight while redesigned tank shrouds allow easier access to the adjusters on the WP shock. The seat height is 5mm higher and wider at the lowest point for easier movement on the motorcycle while new, Swedish-inspired graphics create a distinctive look.

All models are expertly crafted with the latest technology and rider aids, in addition to featuring an extensive list of premium aftermarket components to ensure each machine delivers best-in-class rideability. New for 2025 are Dunlop’s latest MX34 tyres, which provide improved acceleration and cornering, while Pro Taper handlebars, ODI grips, and Brembo clutch and brake systems are retained for their proven performance and durability.
