Husqvarna TC250, TE250, TE310 - big changes to the new TC250/TE250 - the TE310 is completely revamped

The 250 cc 4-stroke motocross and enduro range from Husqvarna has seen major changes to both the design, chassis and engine, and is joined by the new TE310, fitted with a new "small" 250 cc increased  to 300 cc. displacement.

These models will be available from the end of July at Husqvarna dealer network.



TC250  

The improvements to the TC250 have been confirmed at the European MX2 championship now underway, with Andrea Cervellin and Jernej Irt first and second respectively in the championship after 5 rounds.

The most important changes are to the engine, now fitted with a Mikuni batteryless electronic fuel injection system and 45 mm diameter throttle body. The major changes to the engine are to the cylinder head, with a new profile that has enabled an increase in power throughout the curve. The camshaft fuel intake line and exhaust are new, as well as the intake phasing.

The engine crank-case has been reinforced and now has steel sockets on chassis connections. The Akrapovic exhaust pipe has been specially designed by the manufacturer in Slovenia for Husqvarna and has a steel manifold, titanium silencer and steel heat protection.

Concerning the chassis parts the frame area below the engine cradle and near the footrests has been completely redesigned, with side plates of forged steel to reduce lateral bulk and increase resistance to strain. This effectively creates a single plate covering the footrest and brake pedal connections. The cradle surface has been streamlined so as to reduce to a minimum any possible impact with the ground or other obstacles. The steering pipe area has also been improved and reinforced.
 
The engine guards are made of a new material, providing better protection against knocks.

The mirror-finish aluminium hubs are new, now with standard perforations.

The bodywork has new graphics on the tank area, with In Mould Plastic Decoration which is incorporated in the actual material, not applied afterwards.

TE250

Antoine Meo and Matti Seistola have tested and ridden to victory the TE250 in the first part of the world enduro championship . Now it is ready to meet the wider public in the showrooms and at enduro races throughout the world. The TE250 is without doubt the best performing and most wanted 250 cc four-stroke enduro of the moment.

For the enduro version the most important changes concern chassis parts , as  the 2010 version engine already had a Mikuni fuel injection system.

The chassis has been redesigned and reinforced at the specific request of the official Ch Racing team, with a streamlined area below the cradle preventing knocks from uneven surfaces. The area around the footrest connections and rear brake pump connections has been improved to reduce contact with the heel  and to facilitate movement by the rider on the pedals. A single plate covers the footrest and rear brake pump/pedal connections.

The suspension has been optimized, with a dedicated setting for enduro racing, both for the Kayaba forks and the Sachs shock absorber.

In order to better facing the longest and most extreme enduro trials the fuel tank capacity has been increased to 8.5 litres.

The tank has a new pump which enables 100% exploitation of fuel available.

The air box has been redesigned to better hold the filter sponge and improve resistance to water.

The engine guards are made of a new material, providing better protection against knocks.

The mirror-finish aluminium hubs are new, now with standard perforations.

The bodywork has new graphics on the tank side panels, with In Mould Plastic Decoration which is incorporated in the actual material, not applied afterwards.

The design and look of handguards included in the kit are also new.

The engine has been redesigned, improving power at low revs thanks to the ability to choose between 2 different CDI maps configuration through handlebar switch – for hard or soft ground, depending on the style of riding and condition of the track.

The layout of radiator hoses is new, as well as the position of the exhaust silencer now with new db killer and heat protection
  
TE310

The new TE310 boasts the lightest engine in the 250 cc 4-stroke category (22 kg), boosted to 302.44 cc, thanks to an increase in bore and stroke, now 82 X 57.3 mm.

The throttle body is the same as that on the TC250 - a Mikuni 45 mm diameter. The exhaust system is specially designed for the 310 model and as in the other models has a new heat protection on the silencer.

The bike is much lighter than the previous version (- 6 kg) and comes with significantly higher torque and power.

Otherwise the bike has the same features as the TE250, with the new reinforced chassis, new Grimeca hubs, Kayaba 48 mm front forks and Sachs shock absorber with new settings, 8.5 litre fuel tank, new handguards and new bodywork graphics.
