For 2020, Husqvarna went in a different direction with the suspension for its four-stroke motocrossers. More softly sprung and damped at both ends, the setup spec’d for the FC 250 is naturally liked by riders who weigh 155 pounds or less and lap at novice-to-intermediate levels. Conversely, the fork and shock sag too much and lack bottoming control for faster intermediate-to-pro-level riders who weigh more than 155 and those of any skill level who tip the scales at 170 pounds plus. The FC 250 has a midrange-to-top-end-oriented powerband, making 40.7 peak hp at a sky-high 13,900 rpm; bottom-end improves using the optional ventilated airbox cover supplied with the bike. With its broad power delivery, the FC 250 can carry a gear for a remarkably long time.

With an MSRP of $9,199, the FC 250 is the most expensive 250cc-class four-stroke MXer on the market and one of the best-equipped: Magura hydraulic clutch, Brembo brakes, and ODI lock-on grips. “I personally value comfort, so I appreciate the FC 250’s softer valving,” tester Eric Storz noted. “The suspension is supple and composed through choppy sections of the racetrack.”
