FOREMOST, IS THE
THAN THE 2013
A: That is a trick question.
Husqvarna has not imported a 250cc
two-stroke motocross bike since 2009 (and
if they had, it wouldn’t have been called
a TC250 but a CR250). The only 250cc
two-stroke in Husqvarna’s 2013 lineup
was the WR250. It was an old-school
two-stroke that was long in the tooth and
destined for the scrap heap.
Instead of renovating the antiquated
WR250, Husqvarna dropped the whole
line and started over with all-new, albeit
borrowed, bikes for 2014.
Q: WHAT ARE HUSQVARNA’S
NEW MODEL DESIGNATIONS?
A: Previously, Husqvarna labeled
its models as TC (motocross-based
four-strokes), TXC (offroad four-stroke
machines), TE (street-legal dual-sport
bikes), CR (two-stroke motocross bikes)
and WR (two-stroke offroad bikes).
For 2014, the Husky model
designations have been changed to FC,
TC, TE and FE. TC is for 85cc, 125cc and
250cc two-stroke motocross bikes (there
is a TC300, but it is not offered in the
USA). FC is the designation for Husky’s
250cc and 450cc motocross bikes (there
is an FC350, but it is not offered in the
USA). TE is for 250cc and 300cc two-stroke enduro bikes, while FE is reserved
for 250cc, 350cc and 501cc four-stroke-powered enduro bikes.
