Moving on up through the Husqvarna lineup is the TC 65. This motocross model is a steppingstone above the pint-size TC 50, but still focuses on enhancing the young riders’ skills. This is because, unlike the automatic clutch and 50cc engine of the TC 50, the rider will have to work a manual clutch and six-speed gearbox as well as modulate the throttle to control the more powerful 65cc two-stroke engine. Like the TC 50, however, the TC 65 is built for aspiring motocrossers with its stiff chrome-moly steel frame and adjustable WP suspension. Stopping power is done by the hydraulically operated brake caliper pinching on wave brake discs.
Other two-stroke 65cc dirt bikes suitable for the smaller motocrossers of the family include the KTM 65 SX, Kawasaki KX 65, and Yamaha YZ65.
For 2020, the primary update for the TC 65 is new graphics.
