FC 250 2020
UNCOMPROMISED ABILITY

Hailed as the most premium 250 4-stroke motocross motorcycle available, the Husqvarna FC 250 is engineered to keep ahead of the field. Featuring a lightweight and compact motor as well as a PANKL gearbox with advanced electronics and ergonomics, the FC 250 maintains the leading position in the 250 4-stroke class.

Features and Benefits

Lightweight frame
The chromium molybdenum steel frame harnesses advanced geometries and flex characteristics aimed at providing unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption and exceptional straight-line stability. The frame is finished off in a premium blue powder coating with standard frame protectors for superior protection and durability.
CNC machined triple clamps
CNC-machined triple clamps feature a 22 mm offset and an integrated rubber damping system, which reduces vibration and increases rider comfort. Additionally, the front number board integrates a triple clamp roost protector.
WP XACT FRONT SUSPENSION
The WP XACT fork is lightweight and easy to adjust through a single air valve for pre-load, using the supplied fork pump. Compression and rebound fine-tuning is handled by tool-free click adjusters. Together with the fully adjustable WP XACT rear shock, Husqvarna offers superior suspension performance, feeling and comfort.
Carbon fibre subrame
Carbon fibre is renowned for its light weight and high strength. For those reasons, the Husqvarna MX range features a unique composite subframe made from 30% carbon fibre. Specific rigidity has been engineered into the subframe to deliver optimal handling and rider ergonomics.
Engine
Engineered to ensure class-leading performance and handling characteristics, all major engine components and shaft arrangements are carefully positioned closer to the centre of gravity to reduce the effects of rotational inertia. The 250cc 4-stroke engine is also light, tipping the scales at only 26.1 kg, but is also remarkably powerful with an overall power output of 46 hp.
DOHC cylinder head
Featuring finger followers treated in a Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coating, the DOHC cylinder head is engineered for high-level performance. Large titanium valves - 32.5 mm intake and 26.5 mm exhaust - aid the motor to rev freely towards its 14,000 rpm limit, while maintaining smooth, efficient power throughout the rev-range.
Crankcase
The crank-cases are designed to position rotating components in the ideal position to achieve the perfect centre of gravity, at the lowest possible weight. The casings are manufactured using a high-pressure die cast production process, resulting in thinner wall thickness while retaining exceptional strength. The iconic Husqvarna Motorcycles emblem adorns the bronze-finished crankcase covers.
Exhaust system
Designed from lightweight aluminium, the exhaust system on the FC 250 features a flow-designed resonance chamber that is integrated into the header pipe. The silencer has a short and compact design, delivering impressive power output while keeping decibels as low as possible.
Map switch
A standard mapping switch activates launch control and allows riders to toggle between 2 engine maps. It also activates the traction control feature. Both traction control and launch control features offer improved traction for better race starts and more control on slippery tracks.
Electric start
The convenience of a lightweight starter motor and compact battery setup means starting the motor, or recovering from a stall effortlessly, is as simple as a push of a button.
Pro Taper handlebar
Featuring fatigue resistance at a minimal weight, the standard PRO TAPER handlebars are manufactured to exacting standards to deliver exceptional rider comfort and control.
ODI grips
ODI lock-on grips feature an innovative integrated throttle mechanism and a non-glue application. The throttle assembly also features easy free-play adjustment and throttle-cam adjustment.
Magura hydraulic clutch
Feather-light clutch action and near maintenance-free operation are a few of the benefits of the MAGURA hydraulic clutch setup. Additionally, play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in hot or cold conditions, as well as over time.
DS clutch
The FC 250 features a (DS) Diaphragm Steel clutch. The clutch basket is engineered from a single-piece of CNC-machined steel that allows the use of thin steel liners and contributes to the compact design of the engine.
Gearbox
Produced by PANKL RACING SYSTEMS, the new 5-speed gearbox is designed to be extremely light and durable while featuring specific and proven motocross-specific gear ratios.
Brakes
The highest level of quality is guaranteed with class-leading Brembo callipers and controls. The 260 mm front and 220 mm solid rear discs deliver superior stopping power instilling confidence in any condition.
