2018 Husqvarna Motorcycles TC 50
Progression starts here
Modelled after the full size motocross bikes, the TC 50 features the same striking looks and ergonomic feel in a reduced size to suite the future stars of tomorrow. The similarities between the TC 50 and the larger motocross range do not end there, a superior level of quality and attention to detail are incorporated into the TC 50 ensuring top level performance and a premium look and feel.
- Engine: The modern and compact engine features the latest in 2-stroke technology offering class leading performance and ride-ability. By using a 3-shaft design, the crankshaft is positioned near the centre of gravity which not only benefits mass centralisation but also creates the ideal intake angle into the reed valve delivering top level performance. Additionally, a power reduction kit is available from Husqvarna accessories which limits the TC 50 to 5.5hp for first timers and complete beginners.
- Cylinder: The high performance cylinder is made from lightweight and durable aluminium and incorporates a pressure controlled exhaust valve (PCEV) which provides unrivalled performance within the highly competitive 50cc class.
- Automatic clutch: A key feature of the TC 50 is the automatic centrifugal clutch. This allows the young riders to focus on riding without the complexity of operating a manual clutch and gearbox. The multi-disc clutch delivers a precise and predictable power delivery across the RPM range.
- Exhaust: The exhaust is designed to specifically match the character of the TC 50 engine and is manufactured using a 3 dimensional stamping process by WP performance systems. Once the components are shaped they are robot welded to ensure high levels of quality and durability.
- Bodywork: The bodywork of the TC 50 harnesses years of motocross testing and experience to offer the perfect ergonomic feeling instilling confidence and comfort in all riding conditions.
- Handlebars: Made of high quality aluminium alloy, the handlebars offer top stability and safety. A crash pad on the handlebar brace protects the rider from any impact.
- Wheels: Mirroring the full size motocross range, the TC 50 uses lightweight, black anodised, aluminium rims providing the highest strength and reliability. The standard MAXXIS tyres provide progressive grip on a variety of different terrain.
- Cooling: Featuring the latest technology, the TC 50 uses a liquid cooling system to cool the cylinder as well as the crank cases. For its size, the TC 50 uses large radiators which work together with the spoilers to channel air through the cooling fins efficiently ensuring sufficient cooling in all conditions.
- Frame: The high strength chromoly steel frame is produced by WP Performance Systems and integrates carefully calculated parameters of longitudinal flex and torsional rigidity to benefit handling and suspension functionality. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, along with outstanding stability.
- WP AER 35: Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the TC 50 is fitted with a revolutionary WP AER 35 fork. Besides being very light weight, the 35 mm USD forks feature exceptional damping and comfort characteristics allowing the rider to push the limit with complete confidence. With 205 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can also be adjusted easily with the use of an air pump for rider preference, weight or track conditions.
- Rear shock: Linked directly to the swingarm, the WP monoshock is matched perfectly to the front forks for the perfect balance and damping characteristics. Additionally, the rear shock offers 185mm of suspension travel and is fully adjustable allowing it to be tailored to rider preferences or track conditions.
- Brakes: Featuring the same level of technology offered on the full-size motocross range, the TC 50 is fitted with hydraulically operated brake callipers and waved front and rear brake discs. The system ensures advanced brake feeling and stopping performance in all conditions.
