The 1968 Husqvarna Cross models featured many significant improvements over previous Huskies. Most notably was the one-piece frame that replaced the earlier bolt-together frames. The tank paint color was now a bright fire-engine red and there were many refinements that improved performance and reliability. The 360cc models were more powerful, with excellent low-end torque, and had – what the riders considered a very useable powerband.
The 1967 Inter-Am series had been a spectacular success, and Edison Dye could sell every Husqvarna Cross he could get his hands on. The 360cc models were especially popular in the deserts of America, thanks to riders like Malcolm Smith and J.N. Roberts who were dominant in the long and fast off-road races.
