The TC 65 will be the first time many young riders experience a full race machine featuring a manual clutch and gearbox. This transition is made easy with a hydraulic clutch and precise 6-speed gearbox. The TC 65 features the same level of quality found on the larger motocross range with premium components fitted as standard.
Featuring the latest in 2-stroke technology, the TC 65 is highly competitive in the 65cc class. Apart from using the lightest and most durable materials, the engine features a pressure controlled exhaust valve which contributes in delivering top level performance. Additionally, the engine features a manual 6-speed transmission and hydraulic clutch allowing the rider to have full control of the power delivery.
The high-performance cylinder is made from lightweight and durable aluminium. Incorporating a pressure controlled exhaust valve (PCEV) the cylinder provides unrivalled performance within the highly competitive 65 cc class.
The reliable hydraulic clutch system guarantees even wear, near maintenance-free operation and perfect modulation in every condition. Meaning that play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time.
The progressive bodywork is scaled down to precisely fit the proportions of an 65 cc rider. The contact points and feeling allow the younger riders to feel the similar 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.
Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the TC 65 is fitted with WP XACT forks with AER technology. Besides being very lightweight, the 35 mm USD forks feature exceptional damping and comfort characteristics that allow riders to perform with complete confidence. Thin outer tube diameters offer refined rigidity and reduced weight for optimal performance and rider comfort. With 215 mm of wheel travel, the air unit in the left fork leg can be adjusted easily with the use of an air pump for rider preference, weight or track conditions.
Linked directly to the swingarm, the WP XACT PDS monoshock is matched perfectly to the front forks for the perfect balance and damping characteristics. Additionally, the rear shock offers 270 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 65 is fitted with hydraulic brake calipers and large waved front (198 mm) and rear (160 mm) brake discs. The system ensures advanced brake feeling and stopping performance in all conditions.
The high-strength chromoly 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. The subframe is fitted to the frame with four screws and is made of lightweight aluminium.
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 and the handhold area. Here a lock-on ODI grip is mounted on the left side while a vulcanised ODI grip is mounted on the right-side throttle assembly. Additionally, the specific handlebar bend is created to offer the best ergonomic position. A crash pad on the handlebar protects the rider from rough contact.
Mirroring the full-size motocross range, the TC 65 uses lightweight, black anodised, aluminium rims that provide the highest strength and reliability. The standard MAXXIS tyres offer progressive grip on a variety of different terrains.
