2010 Husqvarna TE 250 – Road Husqvarna’s all-new street-legal 250 small but mighty.

Once a time, Husqvarna was a big-time in the dirtbike market. But most of glory came before the was sold to Cagiva in Italy, Japanese dirtbikes took stage, before four-… replaced two-strokes as the primary of propulsion for off-road motorcycles—and before BMW bought Husqvarna in

Since then, the company, working from its factory in Italy, has been pushing to re-emerge as a serious contender in the category. Its latest entry in effort is theTE 250, a dual-purpose enduro powered by an four-… engine in an all-new And in most ways, it’s an little bike.

The new TE is an offshoot of the motocross bikeintroduced late in The two share major components, but the TE gets electronic fuel and electric starting. Detail consist of things like wheel sizes and transmission

The heart of the TE is an exceptionally compact, dohc, 250cc Single packed with a six-speed Husqvarna claims this is 13 percent smaller than its 250cc engine and weighs 48.5 pounds. It’s in a new backbone-style steel frame also lighter, helping total bike weight to just 250 pounds dry. Up a 48mm KYB fork replaces the Marzocchi, though it’s as usual at the rear.

Brembo matched with Braking are a nice, top-quality touch, with Excel rims.

All of adds up to an exceptionally light and bike you can flick side to and snap into corners amazing ease, almost a bare-bones motocross bike. Coast riders will the TE 250′s ability and willingness to direction in tight off-road The engine makes a surprising of power, but only if you rev it and sometimes fan the clutch like a 125cc

There’s not a lot of power at low rpm, but the TE will still chug the tight technical stuff fine and even motor up Don’t be fooled, though; thing likes to run wide-open its revs kept in the upper rpm

As much fun as the TE 250 is, it definitely has a few character One is the stock emissions equipment, involves a throttle stop, a canister, a catalytic converter, an cage and an O2 sensor. With all in place, the TE’s performance was so it was impossible to get a fair gauge of the true potential.

So all of it was removed, the bike illegal for use on public but we had little choice.

Once it was to breathe, the TE ran as previously described for a lean spot right off that caused a slight Revised EFI mapping that fix that lean spot be available from Husky by the time you read this. the Mikuni injection works and crisply, without any bogs, or backfires. We also weren’t pleased with the gear

Second through fifth just fine for off-road but first was a bit too tall for easy in really tight technical And sixth was too low, causing the to buzz uncomfortably at speeds 65 mph.

The lack of a heat on the exhaust pipe can turn the leg of your riding pants toast. And when you are standing on the and leaning forward up steep your right leg can bump the kill switch and shut the engine. Ouch!

Our test had a faulty clamp on the oil breather that was an easy fix but not before oil everywhere during one ride.

No about comfort, though. The position is very open, and the flat enough to move and forth on easily. The bodywork is further aiding rider but at the expense of a too-small fuel 1.85 gallons is not nearly for extended trail rides.

Husqvarna says a 2.6-gallon will be available.

The TE 250 will be ridden more often by riders, so the factory suspension are set up on the soft side. The fork consistent damping throughout its but the shock runs though its very quickly, especially on landings and off-road g-outs. As a the bike soaks up whoop-de-dos too rather than staying and gliding over the tops of The suspension does do a great job smaller obstacles like and choppy stutter bumps.

great when hitting hidden rock—you know the one I’m about, the one that makes heart stop as the bike out of control sideways. The TE lessens the of such a disaster by pretty soaking up the jolt. That in handy during our photos in the where every rock was

Give some credit to the lightness, too, which the bike easier to control.

its flaws, the TE is a complete blast to You can toss it around like a two-…, it does just everything you ask it to do and wailing along the with its four-… engine at high rpm is pure adrenaline.

The first and too-low sixth the absence of an exhaust heat and the soft calibration of the Sachs are all easily fixable by the factory. The conundrum is a bit tougher: Owners have to decide whether to with sub-par 250-class performance by leaving that in place or to achieve above-par risk what could be a fine—by altering it.

In all probability, a dual-purpose bike as expensive as one ($7599) will likely be by a dedicated off-roader who wants a mount just so he or she can use short of public backroads to connect or to ride into a nearby for gas or food, so in the end there are no major here. With the TE 250′s agile chassis and rev-happy the good far outweighs the bad, and the is an awesome lightweight trailbike.
