First Look: 2020 Husqvarna Motocross and Cross-Country Bikes

Vital MX: The biggest news for 2020 from Husqvarna is not motocross related. The TX 300 (two-stroke, cross-country) is now a TX 300i with TPI (transfer port injection) like the TE 250i and TE 300i Enduro models. This is the first time we are seeing this technology on a dedicated "race" bike which could be signs it is making it's way to the motocross models in the future. Also, like the Rockstar Edition FC 450, the WP suspension features a new name, XACT, yet it is the same (other than new settings) as last year's un-named suspension.

Both traction control and launch control feature advanced settings. These offer optimal traction off the start and on slick tracks and see the two systems – when both activated – working simultaneously to offer maximized benefits. With the engine at idle, launch control is engaged by pressing both TC and MAP buttons simultaneously for about two seconds. The LED lamp will blink continuously meaning the system is active. This function limits the amount of power to the rear wheel, improving traction and preventing loss of control under hard acceleration.

  • Standard handlebar map switch → modify engine characteristics according to conditions & rider preference
  • Launch control → maximum traction for perfect starts

Traction Control

Standard on all 4-strokes and featuring an optimal setting for a significant advantage in wet or muddy conditions, the traction control can be selected to an on or off position from the handlebar switch.
