April 2023 Press Release:
CLASS-LEADING FC AND TC MOTOCROSS AND FX AND TX CROSS-COUNTRY MODELS ENHANCED WITH REVISED SUSPENSION AND STRIKING NEW LOOKS.
Setting a high standard for modern 2-stroke machines, the TC 125 and TC 250 motocross models are progressive in design and expertly assembled with the latest technology including Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI), which ensures class-leading power, rideability, enhanced reliability, and lower running costs. Complete with an electronic power valve and electric start, these are the machines of choice for all serious 2-stroke riders.
The 2024 FC 250 and FC 350 are powered by state-of-the-art DOHC 4-stroke engines that are lightweight, powerful, and play a vital role in enhancing the overall handling of each machine. Together with the iconic 450 cc FC 450, all 4-stroke machines feature the latest technology and electronic rider aids.
Every machine in the motocross lineup is engineered with one goal in mind – to outperform the competition. For the new model year, the FC and TC models are equipped with reworked WP suspension for superior comfort, handling, and straight-line stability. The WP XACT 48 mm front fork and WP XACT rear shock feature new settings for improved cornering agility, with customization and further fine tuning achieved by using the easy access, tool-free adjusters. Continuing to feature ProTaper handlebars, a Brembo clutch, and Dunlop tires, all TC and FC models are premium racing machines capable of competing at the highest level.
Built for the demands of off-road competition, the TX 300, FX 350, and FX 450 cross-country machines utilize the same advanced platforms as found on the TC and FC models and are enhanced by large capacity fuel tanks, cross-country specific gearing, convenient side stands, and a 21/18-inch D.I.D DirtStar wheelset fitted with Dunlop MX33 front and AT81 rear tires. Headlining the platform differences for 2024 is the all-new WP XACT closed cartridge spring fork offered on all cross-country models.
Rigorously tested by WP’s research and development department, the new 48 mm WP XACT closed cartridge spring fork provides exceptional comfort and consistency over long rides. This is achieved by the closed cartridge system and by using a mid-valve piston designed to optimize oil flow and prevent foaming for consistent and predictable damping at all times. A hydrostop, active in the final 68 mm of travel, reduces the impact of harsh and high-speed landings for continued straight line stability and forward momentum. Both the compression and rebound settings can be quickly adjusted by hand using the easy access clickers.
