2012 Husqvarna Motorcycle

Taking research directly from Husqvarna World Endurance Championship riders Juha Salminen and Antoine Meo, Husky has further developed the TXC 250 for 2012, the youngest sibling of the all-new TXC 310 and the TXC 511.

The Husqvarna TXC250 arrives with fresh upgrades for 2012, including LeoVince exhaust and revised Kayaba suspension components. Regarding the four-stroke ngine, Husky has revised the fuel-injection system on the cross country 250, allowing for optimal power output.

Husqvarna says: “An all-new Leo Vince exhaust system and revised ignition timing allow the 249.5cc fuel-injected powerplant to run stronger and churn out bigger power. The 6-speed gearbox allows the TXC250 to stretch its ponies across a wide spectrum, making it a willing accomplice in a variety of off-road terrain.”
