Husqvarna Motorcycles just announced its lineup of 2017 motocross bikes, and two-stroke fans can rejoice. The TC 250 has been completely redesigned from the ground up.

First the engine. Designed with mass centralization as a key theme, the TC 250 two-stroker has a new cylinder, a piston, die-cast engine casings, a crankshaft carburetor and a new counter balancer shaft to reduce vibrations. It also benefits from a new hydraulic clutch and five-speed transmission.

The skeleton of the TC 250 is a new chromium molybdenum steel frame and a carbon fibre subframe to make it strong but lightweight. On the suspension side of things, the TC 250 employs the lighter and all-new WP AER 48 front fork system and a WP DCC rear shock. Gripping the ground are race-ready Dunlop MX 3S knobbies mounted onto high-strength alloy rims.

To sum it all up, the 2017 TC 250 is lighter, faster and more comfortable to ride.

And if the 250 isn’t enough power for you, Husqvarna has a 300-cc performance upgrade kit available for the TC 250.
