Being the full-size two-stroke that it is, the Husqvarna TC 250 is a competition-level motocrosser that can be seen ripping the local tracks with an unmistakable, head-turning howl. With its aggressive 250cc two-stroke engine fed by a Mikuni carburetor the TC 250 likes to be ridden hard making this a ride of choice for experienced riders. Suspension components are made up of WP Xact setup with more than 11 inches of travel at both ends. The brake department sees Magura calipers grab hold of 260 and 220mm discs.
Test rider Tyler Enticknap stated that while the 2017 Husqvarna TC 250′s suspension wallows in the softer berms at the track, he said the bike is really flickable and can be turned really well.
Further, in a Dirt Rider review of the 2017 model, “Acceleration out of corners is smooth and calculated and there is no violent two-stroke like hit to the Husqvarna TC 250,” plus the “two-stroke engine likes to be ridden aggressively and hard by the rider. If you do not rev out this engine, it can be a challenge to clear some bigger type jumps out of deep sand corners.”
Although the two-stroke 250cc market is somewhat limited, competition can still be found in the KTM 250 SX, Yamaha YZ250, and TM MX 250.
