Model Description

For 2025, the TC 65 comfortably holds its position as the best-in-class 65 cc motocross machine. For many young riders it will be their first experience of riding motocross with a manual clutch and gears with the lightweight hydraulic clutch and smooth shifting 6-speed gearbox making this experience easy. Able to accommodate a wide range of youngsters, the TC 65 offers multiple ways to adjust the ergonomics of the chassis. In terms of performance, the exhaust, DS clutch, Formula brakes, and large Twin Air filter combine to create the ultimate riding experience.

The clean and sleek bodywork offers proven and comfortable ergonomics. Youngsters will benefit from the large contact points that allow them to grip the bike tighter with their legs for enhanced control. A flat seat profile also offers unrestricted movement.

The process to remove and reinstall the air filter is simplified for 2025 and allows for faster, cleaner, and easier filter changes. With a redesigned airbox, accessible by removing the quick release seat by hand, the introduction of a snap lock mounting design for the air filter is fail proof and prevents dirt from falling into the intake tract. Additionally, the Twin Air filter has a larger surface area for increased air flow into the engine.

High-quality aluminium handlebars with a black anodised finish ensure reduced vibration and maximum stability. The wider handlebars enhance comfort, which leads to better body positioning with thin diameter ODI grips allowing for a heightened level of control.

Sleek in design to fit onto the frame and inside the ergonomic bodywork, the slim fuel tank offers an ample fuel capacity of 3.5 litres.

To accommodate youngsters of different sizes, the TC 65 now offers multiple adjustment options to suit a wider range of riders, based on their height and set-up preference. The handlebars can be mounted in four different positions, the rear shock can be positioned from standard high position into a lower setting, and the subframe and bodywork can be installed in two different places to suit each individual rider.

The TC 65 frame is made from chromium molybdenum steel and enhances the riding experience thanks to its precise geometry and flex. Mirroring a proven design concept, the shock is not connected to the upper frame tube to reduce the energy transferred through the chassis, which leads to greater stability. Frame protectors with a textured surface enhance control in all conditions and protects the dark blue metallic powder coating from wear.

The lightweight and durable subframe is manufactured using a combination of polyamide reinforced with glass fibre and two steel bars. This new hybrid construction was first used on our full-size motocross models and now, with its reliability proven, can be found on the TC 65. Besides being robust, the subframe plays a vital role in ensuring outstanding handling and is height adjustable to offer tailored ergonomics adapting to the height of the rider.

Forged triple clamps align the forks perfectly and ensure smooth, uncompromised performance from the WP suspension. The triple clamps offer calculated flex characteristics without sacrificing stability.

Featuring the latest in suspension technology, the TC 65 is equipped with 35 mm WP XACT forks. Besides being very lightweight, the forks offer exceptional damping and comfort, which allows for youngsters to ride with complete confidence. Offering 215 mm of wheel travel, the air spring in the left fork leg can be easily adjusted using the supplied air pump to create the perfect set up for any rider.

Connecting directly to the swingarm, the WP XACT shock is updated with revised settings to enhance the damping characteristics and improve the overall balance of the TC 65. With the ability to adjust the preload, high and low speed compression, and rebound settings, the WP XACT shock can be set up to suit any rider.

The hollow die-cast aluminium swingarm is manufactured from a single piece of aluminium for optimal stiffness and a 190 g weight reduction over previous generations. In order to optimise and match the flex characteristics of the new frame, a 14 mm rear axle is fitted. Additionally, the chain guard and chain slider are designed to prevent mud from building up around the swingarm.

Assembled with the latest in 2-stroke technology, the TC 65 is a highly competitive machine. Using the lightest and most durable materials to construct each component, the highlight of the engine is undoubtedly the pressure-controlled exhaust valve that ensures the highest level of performance. Additionally, the engine is complete with a manual 6-speed gearbox, a reliable hydraulic clutch, and a BRISK spark plug. 

The lightweight and durable aluminium cylinder features a Pressure Controlled Exhaust Valve (PCEV) that helps produce unrivalled performance to give all young riders a distinct advantage.

Retaining the proven gear ratios developed specifically for the TC 65, the 6-speed transmission is now manufactured to be more durable by combining stronger steel with a revised production process.

Settings inside the proven 24 mm Mikuni carburettor maximise performance from the engine. With considered calculations to the jetting, the TC 65 runs cleanly throughout its rev-range.

The exhaust system boosts performance of the TC 65 considerably. With the welding seams removed from the inside, exhaust gas flow is unrestricted and maximum power is delivered. The silencer now features a tighter sealing around the end cap and is complete with a black anodised finish.

Introducing full size motorcycle clutch technology to the TC 65, the new DS clutch offers considerable durability. Housed inside a new steel basket, the Diaphragm Spring clutch maintains continued performance and control as the springs constantly compensate for wear. Together with a FORMULA hydraulic clutch, consistent clutch action is guaranteed. 

By combining hydraulically operated brake calipers from Formula, a 198 mm waved front disc, and a 180 mm waved rear disc, braking performance is both confidence inspiring and reliable. Durability has also been improved to extend maintenance schedules while a new, forged rear brake pedal, complete with the same tip as found on the full-size machines, enhances control.

For efficient cooling, the TC 65 features two radiators that replicate the same design as found on Husqvarna Motorcycles’ full-size motocross machines. A simplified routing of the hoses together with strong radiator protectors ensures continued performance and durability. 

Lightweight aluminium hubs are laced to black anodised, aluminium rims using strong spokes to create a reliable set of wheels. Complete with Maxxis Maxxcross MX-ST tyres, young riders will enjoy the benefits of excellent traction and predictability across a wide range of surfaces.
