2022 Husqvarna FC 250

There are minor updates for the three motorcycles in the 2020 Husqvarna four-stroke motocross lineup. You still have a choice between FC 250, FC 350, and FC 450. As before, the FC 450 uses a SOHC motor, while the engines in the FC 350 and FC 250 had a DOHC design. Also, the FC 450 gets a 120mm wide Dunlop Geomax MX33 in the rear, while the smaller displacement FCs have a rear tire that’s 110mm wide. Time to dig in!
