2023 Husqvarna Heritage Motocross, Cross-Country, and Enduro Models | First Look Review

The 2023 Husqvarna FX 350 Heritage and TX 300 Heritage.

With limited availability on select 2023 motocross, cross-country, and enduro models, the new Husqvarna Heritage machines offer a special livery honoring Husqvarna Motorcycles’ off-road racing heritage.

Built on the platforms of the 2023 FC/TC, FX/TX, and FE/TE ranges, these competition-focused motorcycles are designed for racing at the highest level and have been enhanced by a new look inspired by the Swedish heritage of the brand, combined with black anodized EXCEL rims to create what Husqvarna says is “an understated and exclusive appearance.”

Husqvarna Motorcycles has secured 15 FIM Motocross World Championship titles, five AMA Pro Motocross and Supercross Championships, and numerous off-road racing titles since Swedish racer Bill Nillson claimed the brand’s first in 1960. Husqvarna says the exclusive run of Heritage models honors those racing achievements and was inspired by the racing machines of the past, designed with a unique look to pay tribute to the competitive history of Husqvarna Motorcycles.
