Following last year’s expansion of the model range in the 4-stroke segment, the company’s focus for 2011 has turned towards two-stroke models. As a result, Husaberg is offering two new models – the TE 250 and TE 300 – for the 2011 model year, both powered by state-of-the-art, high-performance, 2-stroke engines.
At the heart of the two TE models is a compact and extra-lightweight 2-stroke engine with a displacement of 249 cc or 293.2 cc respectively. The units are equipped with an exhaust power-valve and an adjustable ignition (selectable via a switch fitted as standard to the handlebars), which provide the opportunity to adapt the engine characteristics precisely to the needs of the rider and the terrain. Both models features a six-gear transmission designed precisely for enduro use. The hydraulic clutch system comes from Brembo. Just like the four-stroke Husabergs, the TE models are equipped with the latest upside-down forks from WP, featuring closed-cartridge technology.
The new Husaberg models will be available from mid-July from authorised Husaberg dealers.
