Husqvarna TXC250 $8049 MSRP
The TXC 250 is a completely new, revolutionary machine. The biggest innovation is
the new 250 cc engine that, at only 22 Kg., is without any shadow of doubt the point
of reference for this category.
Compared with the TXC 08 engine, on the new 250 Husqvarna, the distance between
the primary transmission and the centre is decreased by about 16% and the distance
between the gearbox and the centre is reduced by about 7%. Length, width and height
have been decreased by 13%.
The single cylinder water-cooled four-stroke engine features 4 radial valves while
bore and stroke are 79 and 50.9 mm respectively to give a capacity of 249.5 cc.
The engine breathes through 4 titanium radial valves driven by twin overhead combined
chain/gear drive cams.
Wet multi-plate clutch, 7 driving plates - 6 driven.
Five-speed constant mesh gearbox. Lubrication is taken care of by a dry sump system
with rotor pump. The engine and gearbox combined hold about 900 grams of oil. The
TXC has both electric and kick start systems.
The frame is completely new, lighter and has a redesigned geometry. All the body
panels have been redesigned so as to make the bike especially compact, slim and
manageable. The dry weight of the new Husqvarna is the minimum allowable in its
category thus adding to its appeal and performance.
The rear suspension has a new Soft Damp system with a new leverage ratio, new progression
curve and decreased frame load. The chain tension effect has been optimised as has
the traction. The new aluminium swing arm features an asymmetric geometry extruded
box aluminium centre housing the off-set shock absorber.
The suspension features new sealed cartridge Kayaba 48 mm forks and a new Sachs
shock absorber. The brakes discs are of daisy (wave) design.
Husqvarna TXC450 $8854 MSRP
The 2010 version of the TXC 450 benefits from new Kayaba upside down forks with
AOS and Kashima coat treatment that increase the effectiveness of the shock absorbing
system and make the forks operate more smoothly.
The fork steering clamps are also new as is the swing arm that has been shortened
by 15 mm to improve the progression of the rear suspension and the manoeuvrability
of the machine.
The engine has been updated with new carburettor settings and new radiator hoses
and a more powerful water pump have been fitted so as to improve cooling and performance.
All the new body panels have IPD (in–mould plastic decoration) graphics and are
made of stronger, more flexible plastic.
Husqvarna TXC510 $9199 MSRP
The TXC 510 is the queen of the desert. A firm favourite with riders wanting power,
manoeuvrability and comfort on long journeys, the 2010 version of the TXC 510 offers
explosive power and, with its weight trimmed to the bone, ensures the greatest of
enjoyment to professional and amateur riders alike. There are new, stronger, more
flexible plastic body panels with IPD graphics. The new Kayaba 48mm forks are fully
adjustable for compression and rebound. The high performance cartridge has a 28mm
piston that provides excellent shock absorbing characteristics and rider feel. The
frame has been reinforced at the main critical points as on all the twin-cam enduro
models. The swing arm has been shortened by 15 mm to improve manoeuvrability and
the progressive action of the rear suspension.
