Husqvarna TC 250 96kg 42.7bhp

With the 125 Husqvarna, Mattia Guadagnini won the EMX125 and World Junior championship this year. It was a dominant performance. The TC 125 shares the engine and chassis platform with the KTM 125SX. And like the FC four-strokes, has die-cast engine housings for maximum weight savings
