Husqvarna TC300 Two-Stroke Debut at Motocross of Nations
Ahead of the official launch of Husqvarna’s Factory Racing Edition TC300 two-stroke motorcycle in Sweden Oct. 5, the KTM-owned manufacturer unveiled the bike at 2013 Motocross of Nations in Teutschenthal, Germany, September 28.
The Husqvarna TC300, which will be used in the newly formed European Motocross 300cc two-stroke championship, is an upgraded version of the TC250 two-stroke, the revamped model displaying Husky’s “underlying commitment to two-stroke technology.”
Husqvarna says “offering great acceleration characteristics, easily achievable power and capacity increases, ease of maintenance, and compact design, Husqvarna is fully committed to two-stroke power.”
The Factory Racing TC300 will be loaded with race-performance enhancements, including Husqvarna racing graphics, carbon-fiber rear subframe, a full Akrapovic exhaust system, CNC machined hubs and triple clamps, and WP suspension.
Pit Beirer (Head of Motorsport) says: “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. 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.”
