Husqvarna 630 Dual Sport Models enroute to Canada (with slideshow)




The Husqvarna 630 Dual Sport motorcycles are en-route to Canada!


For the first time time since Husqvarna re-entered the Canadian market in 2004 their highly sought after dual sport models will finally be available on dealer's showroom floors.


When Barrett Marketing took over Canadian Distribution last fall their first priority was to get the street legal models homologated with Transport Canada. The competition ready TE and SMR units were the first to arrive and now the all new TE630 and SM630 are on their way from Italy as early release 2011 models.


TE 630 -

The Husqvarna TE 630 benefits from having many parts in common with other four-stroke racing Enduro Husqvarnas. The TE 630 will take you anywhere. With the TE 630, Husqvarna intends to widen its range to include Enduro enthusiasts who use their bikes every day and need more comfort and practicality but want to combine this with the thrill of owning a race bike. The Husqvarna TE 630 is perfect for those of you that want a bike with muscle and class. It is without any doubt the best example of how a racing off-roader can be transformed into a road-going machine. The Husqvarna TE happily took up the challenge of racing and in the last Italian Championship Motorally and Marathon Raid narrowly missed winning the Marathon class category for production bikes that it had claimed in 2008. 

The TE 630 combines strong looks and character with a frame built for daily off-road use thanks also to the superlative engine that is highly tractable even at low to medium revs. The main news item on the new TE 630 is the engine that has been bored out from 98 to 100 mm to give a capacity of 600cc The head now has a red rocker box like the race machines and houses DOHC valve gear from the racing 450/510 that provides 20% more power than the previous 570cc version. The TE 630 now has an electronic injection system that was developed in collaboration with Mikuni. The engine now features a 45 mm throttle body with the starter command on the handlebars and there is a 300 Kpa Mitsubishi “twin jet” fuel injector fitted to the throttle. The Kokusan 360W three-phase ignition flywheel is also new. The water temperature sensor has been positioned on the head. The cooling system has a new impeller and pump body. The clutch is hydraulically operated and the left cover plate has been redesigned. New components include the rugged 12 litre polyethylene fuel tank with a 40l/h pump; the non-return fuel circuit has quick-fit connections. Stainless steel heat protection has been added on the agressive looking exhaust system around the passenger footpegs. The suspension remains unchanged except for the Marzocchi forks that now have the same black sleeves as on the 450 and 510 models. The 2010 version of the TE 630 will have Tommaselli tapered handlebars with new steering head clamps and no cross bar.

SM 630 -

The big news on the new SM 630 is the engine that has been bored out from 98 to 100 mm to give a capacity of 600cc The head now has a red rocker box like the race machines and houses DOHC valve gear from the racing 450/510 that provides 20% more power than the previous 570cc version. The SM 610 i.e. now has an electronic injection system that was developed in collaboration with Mikuni. 

The engine now features a 45 mm throttle body with the starter command on the handlebars and there is a 300 Kpa Mitsubishi “twin jet” fuel injector fitted to the throttle. The pressure regulator (3 Bar) regulates any return of excess fuel to the tank and the MAQS (Modularised Air Quantity Sensor) consists of air temperature, mapping and TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) sensors. The Kokusan 360W three-phase ignition flywheel is also new. The water temperature sensor is positioned on the head. The injection ECU processes signals and governs the operation of the solenoid-operated valve fitted to the right hand side of the radiator. 

The cooling system has a new impeller and pump body. The clutch is hydraulically operated and the left cover plate has been redesigned. New components include the rugged 12 litre polyethylene petrol tank with a 40l/h pump; the non-return fuel circuit has quick-fit connections. Seat padding has been increased to make longer rides more comfortable. Stainless steel heat protection has been added on the exhaust system around the passenger footpegs. 

Braking system upgraded - the front now has a radial race-derived Brembo caliper acting on a floating 320 mm disc while the rear has a 220 mm Brembo disc with a single piston caliper. The suspension remains unchanged except for the Marzocchi forks that now have the same black sleeves as on the 450 and 510 models. The 2010 version of the SM 630 will have Tommaselli tapered handlebars with new steering head clamps and no cross bar. Dry weight is 158 Kg.
