2025 HUSQVARNA TC 85 | Latest | News | Race Reports

New frame, improved engine, and multiple technical updates transform the popular small capacity 2025 Husqvarna TC 85.

For 2025, Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to announce a new generation TC 85 to underline its continued development of high-performance, 2-stroke minicycles. The 2025 Husqvarna TC 85 machine is now built around an all-new chassis that offers significant improvements to handling and stability, while an updated engine boosts bottom to mid-range power. Further components introduced to improve the on-track experience for all young riders include the new WP shock, swingarm, and ergonomic bodywork. Rounding out the changes, new graphics to match the full-size models.

With the previous generation model raced to victory in the 2023 FIM Junior Motocross World Championship, the new 2025 Husqvarna TC 85 is built upon proven foundations and beautifully crafted. For 2025, a new frame with refined geometry considerably improves handling and stability. Mirroring the construction of the full-size machines, the new WP XACT shock, which is 16 mm shorter than before to ensure a more balanced chassis, is mounted onto the upper frame tube. This design creates a more planted feel for the TC 85 and is a huge benefit on rough tracks and big jumps. Additionally, the steering head angle is reduced by a half degree and positioned 6 mm closer to the centre of the chassis for enhanced cornering, especially when exiting turns.

The 85 cc 2-stroke engine benefits from several new components, all introduced to create stronger power in the low to mid-range without sacrificing top-end performance. The updates include a new cylinder head, spark plug, ignition, and exhaust, with the settings inside the Keihin carburettor adjusted to suit the improved engine. Finally, when compared to the outgoing generation, the engine is rotated three degrees upwards at the front, and by pivoting from the same mounting point at the swingarm, the weight is distributed more effectively for improved cornering and jumping.

The swingarm itself is new and 300 g lighter thanks to a refined casting process. Together, the new frame, WP XACT shock, and swingarm combine to reduce the overall height of the 2025 Husqvarna TC 85. These changes, introduced alongside new ergonomic bodywork, ensure young riders can move around on the TC 85 much more easily, which inspires confidence and allows them to compete with improved control. In addition, a modernised rider triangle created by the new footrests, handlebars, and lower seat further enhances the riding experience and makes the new generation model incredibly effortless to ride.

  • Revised engine – delivers a significant boost from low to mid-range power
