Husky Sport, the UK Distributor for Husqvarna motorcycles, working in conjunction with the ACU/AMCA British Supermoto Championship has announced the introduction of the Husqvarna SM125 Challenge.
Designed with the dual purpose of providing a cost effective entry to Supermoto racing for the complete beginner and as a stepping stone between the 85cc and the larger classes for existing racers, the SM125 Challenge will be open to riders aged 14-19, all racing on Husqvarna SM125 Supermotos, equipped with identical Michelin tyres.
By restricting the modifications allowed to the bikes and by using a Michelin control tyre, the cost to participants is kept low and leads to closer racing on the circuit. Race results are directly related to the riders' ability, not the size of the race budget.
The package consists of a new Husqvarna SM125S, race exhaust system, race front number board / rear mudguard and entry to all 6 rounds of the 2007 British Supermoto Championship. The total price for this package has been set at an ultra competitive £3499.00 including VAT, which subject to status may even be financed to further ease the cost of starting a racing career.
The Husqvarna SM125 Challenge will run as a separate class at each of the 6 2007 British Supermoto Championship rounds, race dates as follows:
1. April 22, Lydd International, Kent
2. May 6, Teeside Autodrome
3. July 1,  Rowrah, Cumbria
4. July 28, Three Sisters, Wigan
5. July 29, Three Sisters, Wigan
6. August 11,Teeside Autodrome
Places in the series are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Interested parties should contact Mike Carter at Husky Sport on 01962 771122 or e mail Information will also be available from the AMCA stand at the forthcoming Stoneleigh Dirt Bike Show.
Full Husqvarna SM125 Challenge information, including details of the technical restrictions, will be posted shortly on the national Husqvarna website,
