Husky TC450

I can haz?

Check out the all-new Husqvarna TC450. Engineers at Husky - now in a joint effort with BMW - are quite obviously taking bold strides toward building competitive motocross machines. These "spy photos" (are they really spy photos when they came from Husqvarna?) show some rather innovative designs and features on their premier class motocrosser.

We don't have much info on Husky's new creation, so obviously we can't comment on the performance of the all-new 449cc fuel-injected TC. But one thing is for certain - the guys at "Huska-beemer" are thinking outside the box.

Starting with the motor, it is a 449cc DOHC BMW motor with EFI and electric start. Judging from the photo with the laptop computer, it's a programmable EFI. The head is angled further forward than its predecessor, and like Honda's CRF450, the head pipe wraps around the front of the frame rails.

The chassis is quite radically redesigned. First off, the fuel tank is under the rear of the seat. The fuel cap is at the base of the rear fender, and the lower part of the fuel tank is visible next to the head. The location of the fuel tank and cap allow the seat to extend forward almost all the way to the steering head, which will allow for a lot of rider movement.

The bodywork on the TC is all one piece from the radiator shroud to the rear number plate - or at least what they're calling the rear number plate.

The TC450 is fitted with Kayaba suspension front and rear and Brembo brakes. At first glance it appears that the shock attaches directly to the swingarm ala KTM. But here's where it gets funky. The linkage system is on top of the swingarm, and the all-new frame features what Husky is calling a "concentric axle traction system."

I understand the consequences of my actions prior to engaging in those actions. . .there are certain situations in life where the risk is totally worth the reward.

Heh heh... "Huska-beemer"

i WILL own a husky before i die,... i'd better get crackin'!

He nailed the take-off, but when he landed, something terrible happened. His front tire exploded like a cannonball, and his handle bars went straight through his head. Blood was everywhere. His teeth were ground down to a powder, and the front of his face exploded out the back of his skull. He died instantly... the next day.

That's a sick looking bike, it's crazy how much you can move on that seat.
