ALL-NEW 2-STROKE MACHINES

From the lighter TX 125 to the class-leading TE 300, Husqvarna's 2017 enduro models introduce a new era in 2-stroke technology. All engines have been redesigned from the ground up. Lighter and more compact, they feature a completely new construction that focuses on mass centralisation. Updated pistons are designed to match the reworked cylinders, while new crankshafts and counter balancer shafts significantly reduced vibrations.

A major upgrade across the 2017 2-stroke range is the new 38 mm flat slide Mikuni TMX carburettor. Providing an even smoother and more controllable power delivery the new Mikuni carburettor is less sensitive to temperature and altitude changes.

One of the most significant upgrades for 2017 is the lightweight electric start system, which is now placed and well protected under the engine on all the TE models. The system can also be fitted to the TX 125 as an optional extra, available from Husqvarna Accessories.

A complete new exhaust system on the TX 125 is designed to match the specific characteristics of the new engines to deliver top-level performance. The larger displacement TE models have a new header for optimum durability.

For the smaller displacement TX 125 the gearbox is completely redesigned. All the updates have brought massive reduction in weight across Husqvarna's 2017 2-stroke range.

Engine

The new engine features an innovative construction featuring the latest in 2-stroke technology. As a result the engine delivers high levels of performance and usability. Additionally, the new engine is designed to improve mass centralisation resulting in better agility and reduced rider fatigue.

Cylinder and piston

The new cylinder features a 58 mm bore. Combined with an innovative power valve design that increases power throughout the RPM range, the cylinder also features a redesigned water jacket which improves cooling and increases durability. The new piston is designed to perfectly match the new cylinder layout and offer premium reliability.

Crankcase

High-pressure die cast production processes results in a thin wall thickness and a weight saving of 600g. In order to centralise mass, the new layout features a new shaft arrangement. The clutch shaft is now 27mm higher and the crankshaft 37mm higher reducing the effect of oscillating mass for more precise handling. The historical Husqvarna logo adorns the bronze finished crankcase covers.

Carburettor

The TE 150 features a 38mm flat slide Mikuni TMX carburettor replacing the previous Keihin model. This new carburettor provides a smooth and controllable power delivery with optimal performance over the entire RPM range. Additionally, the new Mikuni model is less sensitive to changes in temperature and altitude which reduces the need for setting changes in different conditions.

Chromoly steel frame
