Ready for a spicy Italian model? Here's a pre-spec look at the Husqvarna MX models. They're claiming less weight, increased reliability, improved performance and handling were the goals for '10. Good call. (We'd have been spooked if they said otherwise.)

Here are a few highlights of what's in the works for this year for the TC (four-stroke MX) models, and the CR125 two-stroke...

  • New IPD (in–mould plastic decoration) graphics on tank sides panels and race number plate.
