Two new motorcycle models, a dirt bike and a supermotard, have been just announced by the BMW subsidiary. Dubbed CR 50 and SM 50, the two Husqvarna machines are destined for tomorrow’s motocross, enduro and supermoto champions.

Highlights of the CR and SM 50 bikes include liquid cooled two stroke engines, disc brakes, adjustable suspensions, steel chassis with the same shape as the Husqvarna racing bike and single cylinder engine with dual clutch transmission.

The framework is in CrMo steel tubes with rectangular, circular and oval section, and the rearframe is detachable. The fork is also made of CrMO steel with dual piston brake caliper in forged and anodized aluminium.

Safety wise, the bikes are fitted with a system that sports a radial pump in forged and anodized aluminium with adjustable aluminium lever. Furthermore, the
handlebar, with practical Husqvarna personalized pads, has a diameter of 22 mm. The Sachs shock absorber has a wheel stroke of 200 mm, adjustable spring preload and Hydraulic rebound.

The front wheel is 12”, and the rear one is 10” with aluminium rims, while SM version has a different colour, different sized front wheel (10”) and racing slick tires.

The engine is capable of delivering 11.2 HP at 10,500 rpm. As said, the speed ratio is single gear with adjustable centrifugal dual clutch transmission. According to Husqvarna, this means there is one configuration for learner riders and one for experts. Finally, the fuel tank has a capacity of 2.7 litres.

The two Husqvarnas are finished in the classic white/red for the CR version and white for the SM one, just like the bike that Antoine Meo rides in the Enduro world championship and Adrien Chareyre rides in Supermoto.
