We are thrilled to announce we will be releasing the 2019 Husqvarna demo next week but wanted to give you a sneak peak on what the Husky crew is bringing out for you to joy ride….
This year at Babes in the Dirt 5, Husqvarna Motorcycles will bring 20 demo motorcycles for beginner, new, and experienced riders. Beginning with the small displacement bikes, best for those “New to Moto,” we have four 2019 TC 85‘s. From there, the bikes go up in engine size and seat height. Read on for a brief overview bikes that will be available at this event and visit www.husqvarna-motorcycles.com for full model range and technical specifications.
The 2019 FE 250 will comprise much of the demo fleet at Babes in the Dirt 5. FE models are dual-sport motorcycles, which are capable off-road bikes that are plated and ready for the road. The engines are second to none in terms of overall performance and versatility, making the bike accessible to both novice and experienced riders. These models will be lowered by shortening the Rear Shock 50 mm, which lowers the seat height from 37.7 inches to roughly 35 inches. The forks are also lowered 50 mm balancing out the front and rear of the bike.
Featuring seven updated models and an all-new motocross line, Husqvarna Motorcycles 2019 motocross range combines cutting-edge technology with high-end componentry to offer riders of all ages and riding levels one of the most efficient and sophisticated motocross line ups on the market.
The 2019 TC 85 17/14 is our standard size 85 cc, meaning the wheel size is standard with a 17’’ front wheel and 14’’ rear wheel. This is a great beginner motocross bike with a low seat height of 33.5 inches. A lower seat height gives a new rider the necessary confidence to feel comfortable while riding and stopping.
The 2019 TC 85 19/16 is our big wheel 85 cc, this bike has the same engine as our standard size 85 cc but with larger wheels. A 19’’ front wheel and a 16’’ rear wheel offer a slightly taller seat height of 34.8 inches.
The 2019 TC 125 is a standard size Motocross bike with a 21’’ front wheel and a 19’’ rear wheel. This bike is the natural progression for a rider who is outgrowing their 85 cc and wants something bigger but with a minimal jump in power; perfect for those who are still gaining confidence in the dirt.
The 2019 FC 250 is a standard size Motocross bike and raced by Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team riders Michael Mosiman, Thomas Covington and Jordan Bailey in the 250 class. It features a 21’’ front wheel and a 19’’ rear wheel. These models will be lowered by shortening the Rear Shock 12 mm, which lowers the seat height from 37.4 inches to roughly 36 inches. The forks are then raised in the triple clamps balancing out the front and rear of the bike.
2019 FC 350 is a standard size Motocross race bike with a 21’’ front wheel and a 19’’ rear wheel. These bikes will be available for demo at the stock seat height of 37.4 inches.
2019 FC 450 is a standard size Motocross bike, the same bike Husqvarna Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Race Team riders Jason Anderson, Dean Wilson and Zach Osborne ride in the 450 class for Motocross and Supercross. The FC 450 features a 21’’ front wheel and a 19’’ rear wheel. This bike will be available for demo at the seat stock height of 37.4 inches and should only be ridden by the most experienced riders.
