Bridging the gap between the junior ranks and the full size models on offer from Husqvarna Motorcycles, the TC 85 is pivotal in the minicycle line-up. Featuring advanced hardware and utilising the latest in engine and chassis technology, the TC 85 is a highly capable machine in the hands of any youth racer.
The TC85 is available in 2 model variants, the big wheel equipped with a 17" Front & 14" Rear wheel.
The TC 85 features bodywork scaled to precisely fit the proportions of an 85 rider. The contact points and feeling deliver exceptional ergonomics, instilling confidence while also leaving room for free and unrestricted movement.
Crafted to provide precise feedback to young riders, the chromium molybdenum steel frame is made using advanced robot welding and hydroformed tubes.
Made from lightweight aluminium, the subframe features a short and compact profile. The profile not only contributes to the overall low weight but also improves mass centralisation.
Using the latest 2-stroke technology, the TC 85 motor delivers unrivalled performance in the competitive 85cc class. With a lively but controllable power delivery, the motor delivers unrivalled performance and rideability across the RPM range.
Much like the forks on the larger MX range, the WP XACT consists of a 43mm split fork design using a capsulated air spring in the left leg and the trusted oil damping system in the right leg. These components offer remarkable suspension performance with 280 mm wheel travel.
The WP PDS shock absorber is fitted to the TC 85. PDS meaning “progressive damping system” allows the rear end to stay stable over smaller bumps or rough terrain while also soaking up bigger hits with ease.
The TWIN AIR filter can be easily accessed without tools, by simply removing the left side panel for quick maintenance. The airbox design allows optimum airflow and maximum filter protection.
The TC 85 features radiators designed with computational fluid dynamics to ensure the ideal passage of air through the cooling fins for optimum engine temperature and the highest performance.
The swingarm is manufactured from a single piece of aluminium using a gravity die-cast production process. This gives the swingarm exceptional strength while keeping the weight to a minimum. Chain adjustment markings are also visible from above to make for quicker, simpler adjustment.
The exhaust system on the TC 85 is perfectly suited to the power characteristics of the engine and contributes to the outstanding performance and rideability all round. Additionally, the short and lightweight silencer improves mass centralisation while keeping noise levels to a minimum.
The cylinder is designed around an innovative power valve system, the system controls both the exhaust valve and the sub-exhaust port for impressive power, torque and controllability. As a result, the TC 85 delivers significant mid-range performance, reducing the need to use the clutch in loamy or sandy conditions.
Manufactured using a high pressure die-cast production process, the crankcases are designed with thinner wall thickness to save weight, while retaining strength and durability. This design also aids in a more compact arrangement, positioning the shaft arrangements closer to the centre of gravity for improved handling.
The TC 85 features a diaphragm spring clutch. The design is lightweight, compact and benefits from added durability. The clutch is actuated using a FORMULA hydraulic system, meaning that play is always compensated for and the clutch point remains the same under different conditions as well as over time.
The TC 85 is fitted with high quality ODI lock on grips as standard. The system includes a vulcanised grip on the throttle grip while the lock-on grip on the left does not require any glue or wire to secure it to the handlebar.
Black EXCEL rims and CNC-machined hubs are fitted with MAXXIS tyres that deliver outstanding performance on a wide variety of terrain.
New brake calipers from Formula, a 240mm wave disc up front and 220mm wave disc at the rear provide improved brake feel and consistent brake pad wear to ensure confident braking in any riding condition. Additionally, a new clutch and brake assembly reduces wear and ensures maximum reliability and durability.
