Husky Motocross

Italian motorcycle manufacturer Husqvarna will come back to race the FIM MX1/MX2 Motocross World Championship campaign in 2011 with the support of a top team -to be announced shortly- which will line up two factory Husqvarna TC 250.

The news was given through a press conference hosting Husqvarna Racing Activities Coordinator and PR Martino Bianchi and Husqvarna Racing R&D Responsible Pierluigi Zampieri.

After three successful seasons in the MX3 World Championship and in the EMX2 European Championship, where Husqvarna took second in MX3 with Salvini as well as a second and fourth position in the EMX2 in 2010, the manufacturer is eager to take part again in the FIM Motocross World Championship which they left at the end of 2005, their last season in MX1 with Antoine Meo and Daniele Bricca.

Joining forces with a well-established team, which the manufacturer will announce later on in the month, Husqvarna hopes in breaking into the MX2 top 10 in 2011 with its full factory squad. Also the two riders will be announced later this month or in October.

The Husqvarna TC 250 motocross bike will feature the fuel injection and the same type of bike will continue being used in the EMX2 series where the manufacturer will have satellite teams, competing also in the MX3 World Championship.

Husqvarna Motorcycles was created in 1903 and is currently owned by the BMW group. The dirt bike manufacturer owns 77 World Titles among all off-road disciplines.
