Derived straight from the TE250 platform, the 310 is bored and stroked to 302cc, producing robust torque while also retaining the light weight and agility of a quarter-liter bike. New Leo Vince exhaust improves power output on the fuel-injected motor of the TE310, which also remains street legal for the enthusiast looking for a hard-core off-road bike with a license plate.

The winning choice of Antoine Meo

A choice of weapon you wouldn't expect, and the one chosen by Antoine Meo. The French champion chose the Husqvarna TE310 to contest the E2 enduro category, against competitors racing with significantly more powerful engines (up to 450 cc). A courageous choice that is already becoming racing legend, and explained by the effectiveness of a rare balance of performance, weight and manoeuvrability. Just as suitable for the passionate amateur racer in challenges among friends, as it is for the wily and determined Husqvarna team champion.

The 2012 Husqvarna TE250 and TE310 both get revised suspension with stiffer 48mm open cartridge forks and rear shock from Kayaba. Exclusive to the U.S. market, the 2012 Husqvarna TE250 has been lowered through new suspension settings, dropping the seat height by two inches to 35.8 inches. Husqvarna says will the lower height will appeal to shorter riders and help distinguish the TE250 from the TE310.

The 2012 Husqvaran TE449 and TE511 also get revised stiffer suspension, as well as a more streamlined wiring harness and new one-piece rear fender. New WP radiators have also been added to improve engine cooling.
