2010 Husqvarna TE310 Bike Review

We were for joy once the 2010 Husqvarna reached our garage. It didn’t cooped up inside for long.

released the TE310 in 2009 and had a successful model on its hands. We out on testing that bike, so we the updated 2010 model as as possible. It was worth the wait, but we it hadn’t taken so long riding and racing the new Swedish/Italian/German for two months in Oregon and California.

the right grip reveals the fuel-injected 298cc Single has way motor than a 250F machine. Quarter-liter motocrossers considerably more punch due to state of tune, but also to a significant weight advantage. The TE the scales at 275 pounds (130 on the wheel) with a full 1.9 of fuel. That heft some extra muscle to around, but the TE manages well for the part.

Sheer power is near a 450 machine and the 310 is best as smooth and easy-to-use. It’s for trail riding and around-town Very fun, but not necessarily a motor.

That didn’t us from trying, however.

We the Fort Rock Enduro after taking possession of the The ISDE-format enduro ran 100 miles the high-desert terrain of Central Our preparation consisted of about 30 of commuting to get acquainted, a new set of Dunlop tires and removing the mirrors.

We left the license plate to see if it would survive. Not only did survive, the Husky produced an excellent considering it was a completely stock and we had no off-road experience with it. alone is significant since we expecting some break-in time to get a for this European brand.

Instead we were able to hop on and go nothing to it.

Lofting the front end some clutch work, but the is willing.

The 298cc motor an 83 x 55mm bore and … to its smooth, linear power. V.P. of Design and regular tester, Brian Chamberlain, the same minute on his 450 and was able to the Husky from an outsider’s He commented that while I was very aggressively when our fastest pace, he was able to lug his machine to achieve the same

Not necessarily surprising, but it confirmed the 310 is best ridden high in the like a 250F in order to get the out of it. It just doesn’t have the to pull that heavy end over obstacles in low rpm. It proved that the Husky is of running near the top of our comfort without any serious personalization; it carries a plate.

We love able to cruise through wouldn’t mind a quieter

If anything about the TE throws us off aside from the lofty seat height, it’s the header. This is the only that looks like old technology as is exits the cylinder to the side with two headers combine into a single The muffler is sleek and modern, but also pretty loud.

We tech inspection at 96 decibels, but would have guessed it due to how it is when riding. We even got about it from spectators and a Considering it’s just street-legal, and we often fudge the with non-DOT tires and mirrors, we definitely want to see quieted down.

No need attracting extra from the fuzz.

There’s a engine brake effect took some getting to. Slowing too early and then to accelerate again into we started to rely more on the to scrub speed and then the rear into corners. was more effective than the front brake, especially in soil. Unfortunately, hard braking also means it likes to stall.

It’s to keep the throttle on and slip the in corners like you would a 2-…. Fortunately, the hydraulic is a pleasure to use with its steel-braided and easy pull.

The front lever is hard to reach. you do get ahold of it, the twin-pot Brembo and 260mm wave rotor substantial power, but the lever to be more accessible, especially transferring from standing to A long reach makes it hard to drag the front while applying throttle in

Both techniques are necessary to from stalling and to help the suspension compress for more

The 2010 Husqvarna TE310 is a bike first and foremost. The that it has a license plate makes it that much to reach your favorite

The Fort Rock course a lot of open quad track flowing berms in the tight and deep whoops in the straights. We on a late minute so the course was beat up by the time we got to it. Even it was fast terrain, we actually things up after our first

The front end stays a little too in the … entering corners and a chopper feel. Backing out compression four clicks a small amount with the and also had a minimal positive on the high-speed headshake. The TE gets a bout of handlebar wag on occasion will scare you. it likes to shake, the front end deflection. Most unexpected changes were minor and a result of the high tire for desert racing.

Likewise, the end is planted. A swingarm that’s shorter for 2010 drops the to 58.4 inches. Traction is and the power displacement is perfectly to finding grip.

The Sachs is run through linkage and the only needed to satisfy us was to soften the compression two clicks to handle holes that developed on the loop.

Like I said, the isn’t a race bike, if it has fancy components like the calipers and a 240mm floating rotor out back, so our next outing was another 100-mile this time chasing Smith across the desert of San Bernardino, California. Malcolm’s dual sport ride have been just Husky had in mind when the TE310.

Similar to the enduro wide-open territory stretched the gearing and six-speed gearbox, but time our leisurely approach it easier to adapt. Fuel were spaced just right, but we were forced to the best portion of the trip due to range. We never ran it completely but the Husky scratches at the 50-mile

Even still, it was a blast to through the mountains and we were to dart off on side trails and through deeper whoops riders on larger dual were forced to pick way through the main trail.

Husqvarna’s engineers and designers made the TE310 attractive to at and easy to work on.

Black rims add to the excellent visual along with the motorcycle’s clean lines. The Husky very different from machines. Red accents on the motor and adjustment knob give it a look and the bike as a whole is

Cemoto flag-style handguards are and the seat is removable with a Dzus style fastener makes getting at the air filter simple.

Husky makes easy with the majority of bolts using an 8mm hex head for maintenance. We needed just one that wasn’t already in our — a 12mm Allen for the front axle. The only that ever cropped up was a for displacing the license plate bolts. I lost two before them, and then lost

But, the street-legal components are bulletproof. A mirror broke off it tipped over in the driveway to the spring-loaded kickstand), but all other had no impact. We never kicked off a with our boots, and they melt from the left-side Eventually we cracked the license holder, but only when 180-degree pivot turns.

normal use, the Husky’s extras held up much better most European brands seen and tested.

Another that Husky prides on is that the emission controls have to be removed to make the perform properly. Unlike brands, Husky engineers put the charcoal canister inside the Instead it is located on the right of the engine where the exhaust would normally go.

The left-side pipe features an sensor and catalytic converter, of which were removed our test bike in what calls the “Power Up” mode. We the canister takes away the bike’s visual appeal, but it caused any problems or suffered damage. Our Husky never and having a backup kickstarter is even though we never it. Here’s the catch… It’s important to turn off the ignition key the engine isn’t running.

If the dies you still have the lever, but it won’t do you any good the EFI system is run off the battery, so you can kick you’re blue and it won’t We had no problems with the electric so Husky could potentially the kickstarter. However, rather ditching the foot lever, rather see engineers change its so that the fuel system off the magneto like modern motocross bikes.

It’s not perfect, but the TE310 might be close for a lot of dirt-biased dual riders. For the time being nothing else that combines a motor, unique styling and excellent performance in a street-legal package. At it’s relatively affordable as for a European machine.

The TE310 is riders who want a powerful, 4-… with a sweet displacement.” Well, that’s what Husqvarna riders get with this machine. We the TE every time we rode it, of conditions. The market for true bikes with licensing is becoming more popular and important for the health of our sport.

Not only does the 310 expand the options with a lovable but it also proved willing and for off-road racing. It falls only on fuel range, but willing to sacrifice some of or deal with a larger tank for the sensation of freedom and urging to take the hard Husky does offer a tank in its Special Parts which also features a of other aftermarket items full-coverage skidplates to replace the aluminum unit placed the steel frame rails separate plastic protectors to around the engine.

Technically a dual sport, but this is the of bike you don’t care street comfort. In fact, you want it. Exactly where and how the BMW came through since the purchased the brand in 2007, we nail down. But the 2010 TE310 is a dirt bike stands alone.

Unless you the Suzuki DR-Z400S. no other even offers a mid-size dual sport, much one of this caliber.
