Less weight, increased reliability, improved performance and handling. These have been the key elements behind the development work carried out by Husqvarna engineers on the new 4-stroke Motocross models for 2010. Improvements to these factors however have not been allowed to affect the Husqvarna off-road look that sets these machines apart from the competition and that features exclusive design. The TC 450 and the all new TC 250 will meet the demands of the MX enthusiasts.
Patmont Motor Werks have an interesting CIDLI suspension system, and have incorporated it into and Electric dirtbike (well, Super Moto really).
Check out the details here:
And when you look at the video, note that the stoppies dont compress the front suspension hardly at all, that could make for some interesting characteristics on the trail as well, but i'd like to see it in action with some big jumps and stuff, as it just doesn't look strong enough.
