Enhanced with multiple technical revisions for 2024, the TC 65 comfortably retains its position as the best-in-class 65 cc motocross machine on the market today. For many young riders, it will be the first motocross model they ride with a manual clutch and gearbox. Knowing this, our engineers thoughtfully fitted a lightweight hydraulic clutch and smooth shifting 6-speed transmission. Now able to accommodate a wider range of youngsters, the TC 65 offers multiple ways in which to adjust the ergonomics around the new chassis. In terms of performance, a new exhaust, DS clutch, Formula brakes, and larger Twin Air filter combine to ensure an exceptional riding experience.
The clean and sleek bodywork is scaled down from what is found on the full-size machines and offers the same proven ergonomics. By replicating the design, youngsters will benefit from the larger contact points that allow them to grip the bike tighter with their legs for enhanced control. In addition, a new and flatter seat profile offers unrestricted movement.
The process to remove and reinstall the air filter is simplified for 2024 and allows for faster, cleaner, and easier filter changes. With a redesigned airbox, accessible by removing the quick release seat by hand, the introduction of a snap lock mounting design for the air filter is fail proof and prevents dirt from falling into the intake tract. Additionally, the Twin Air filter has a larger surface area for increased air flow into the engine.
High quality aluminium handlebars with a black anodised finish ensures reduced vibration and maximum stability. The new, modern bar bend is slightly wider for enhanced comfort and leads to better body positioning while riding. Thin diameter ODI grips allowing for a heightened level of control.
Sleek in design and updated to fit onto the new frame and inside the revised bodywork, the fuel tank is now slightly slimmer overall with the capacity remaining unchanged.
An all-new frame that is robot-welded and uses the same proven chromium molybdenum steel as the previous generation enhances the riding experience thanks to revised geometry and flex. Mirroring Husqvarna Motorcycles full size motocross machines, the shock is no longer mounted to the upper frame tube, which reduces the energy transferred through the chassis and leads to greater stability. Frame protectors with a textured surface enhance control in all conditions and protects the dark blue metallic powder coating from wear.
Aligning the forks perfectly, the forged triple clamps ensure smooth and uncompromised performance from the WP suspension. Refined for the new generation with a new mounting position for the front number plate, the triple clamps continue to offer calculated flex characteristics without sacrificing stability.
Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the TC 65 is equipped with 35 mm WP XACT forks. Besides being very lightweight, the forks offer exceptional damping and comfort, which allows for youngsters to ride with complete confidence. Offering 215 mm of wheel travel, the air spring in the left fork leg can be easily adjusted using the supplied air pump to create the perfect set up for any rider.
Connecting directly to the swingarm, the WP XACT shock is updated with revised settings to enhance the damping characteristics and improve the overall balance of the TC 65. With the ability to adjust the preload, high and low speed compression, and rebound settings, the WP XACT shock can be set up to suit any rider.
