Top level performance is critical in the very competitive 50 cc class and as a result the TC 50 is built around an advanced steel frame which houses the most powerful engine in its class and leading components such as the 35 mm WP XACT fork.
The modern and compact engine features the latest in 2-stroke technology, offering class-leading performance and rideability. By using a 3-shaft design, the crankshaft is positioned near the centre of gravity, which not only benefits mass centralisation but also creates the ideal intake angle into the reed valve for top-level performance. Additionally, the engine is fitted with an automatic centrifugal clutch that reduces riding complexity for younger riders.
The exhaust is designed to specifically match the character of the TC 50 engine and is manufactured using a three-dimensional stamping process. Once the components are shaped they are robot welded to ensure high levels of quality and durability.
A key feature of the TC 50 is the automatic centrifugal clutch. This allows youngsters to ride without the complexity of operating a manual clutch and gearbox. The multi-disc clutch delivers a precise and predictable power delivery across the RPM range. Furthermore, it can easily be set to suit rider preferences or track conditions without the use of any special tools.
For absolute beginners the engine power can be reduced to a moderate 5.5 hp using a kit from Husqvarna Motorcycles Technical Accessories.
The progressive bodywork is scaled down to precisely fit the proportions of younger riders. The contact points and feeling allow the riders to feel the perfect control and comfort found on the larger models.The ergonomics instil confidence while leaving room for free and unrestricted movement thanks to the broad and flat seat and one-piece airbox covers.
The high-strength chromium molybdenum steel frame integrates carefully calculated parameters of longitudinal flex and torsional rigidity to benefit handling and suspension functionality. It guarantees easy handling and precise cornering, along with outstanding stability.
Made from lightweight cast aluminium, the hollow swingarm is designed using sophisticated simulation data and calculated to improve rigidity while using minimal wall thickness. As a result, the swingarm features the ideal rigidity at the least possible weight.
Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the TC 50 is fitted with a set of WP XACT forks with AER technology. Besides being very light weight, the 35 mm USD forks feature exceptional damping and comfort characteristics, allowing the rider to push the limit with complete confidence. Thin outer tube diameters offer refined rigidity and reduced weight for optimal performance and rider comfort. With 205 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can be easily adjusted with the use of an air pump for rider preference, weight or track conditions.
Linked directly to the swingarm, the WP XACT PDS monoshock features an updated setting that is matched perfectly to the front forks for the perfect balance and damping characteristics. Additionally, the rear shock offers 185 mm of suspension travel and is fully adjustable allowing it to be tailored to rider preferences or track conditions.
Featuring the same level of technology offered on the full-size motocross range, the TC 50 is fitted
with hydraulic brake calipers and waved front and rear brake discs. The system ensures advanced
brake feeling and stopping performance in all conditions.
Mirroring the full-size motocross range, the TC 50 uses lightweight, black anodised, aluminium rims providing the highest strength and reliability. The standard MAXXIS tyres provide progressive grip on a variety of different terrains.
The TC 50 features a liquid cooling system for the cylinder and crankcases. The large radiators work together with the spoilers to channel air through the cooling fins, efficiently ensuring sufficient cooling in all conditions.
The tapered NEKEN handlebar is made of high-quality aluminium alloy ensuring top stability and safety. Its diameter shrinks from central 28 mm area to 22 mm in the bends to cylindrical ends of 18mm in the handhold area. Here a thinner lock-on ODI grip is mounted on the left side while a vulcanised ODI grip is mounted on the right-side throttle assembly. The thinner diameter is a major benefit for youth riders to better grasp while riding increasing control and drastically reducing fatigue. Additionally, a crash pad on the handlebar protects the rider from rough contact.
