Husqvarna Heritage enduro and motocross bikes

Husqvarna has announced a retro-inspired spin-off of their 2023 off-road ranges, featuring technical updates as well as new graphics. 

At the 2022 MXGP of Sweden, the factory Husqvarna riders - Kay de Wolf and Roan van de Moosdijk in MX2, and Pauls Jonass and Brian Bogers in MXGP - wore retro gear sets, and their motorcycles retro graphics kits. Similar graphics kits were used on the factory Husqvarna race bikes of the brand’s AMA Pro Motocross riders at the final round of the 2022 season at Pala Raceway in California. 

Now, those graphics kits have been made available for public consumption on a limited number of 2023 Husqvarna motocross, cross-country, and enduro bikes. 

Specifically, the new “Heritage” graphics - complete with yellow front number plate - are available on the FC 450, FC 350, FC 250, TC 250, and TC 125 motocross bikes; as well as TE 150, TE 250, TE 300, FE 250, FE 450, and FE 501 enduro bikes; and TX 300 and FX 350 cross-country bikes.
