The figure of $5395 MSRP* clearly demonstrates Husqvarna's desire to succeed in this new segment.
The CR 65 will be the first MY 2012 Moto cross model release for Australia. It will be followed by the MY 2012, CR 125 two stroke plus the TC 250 and TC 449 four stroke model range.
The already competitive TC 250 X-Light has seen major engine upgrades, with a completely redesigned twin cam valve train incorporating four titanium valves and a revised piston, resulting in a significant increase in both power and torque.
The CR 65 will be available from the Husqvarna dealer network by late August.
