Looking for fun in the woods is by now synonym with the Husqvarna WR 250 as people who already got a feel of it can’t get enough. And it is all due to the fact that this maker decided that it is better to rely on the good old two-stroke “hit” and make a good and pretty unique impression on a market dominated by four-stroke engines packed with technology in order to equal what the powerplant of this Husky already achieved.

But hey, that’s technology evolution and we’re not going to argue with it, but simply get the best out of the WR 250 and put it on your screen.

One of the longest living models in Husqvarna’s lineup, the WR 250 was first produced in 1969 and followed a great success all through the 70s as it was a cheap and easy to live with machine characterized through a two-stroke engine, good suspensions and drum brakes, kind of like all the bikes of the time, but what you will notice in the pictures are the color schemes. This is testimony of the fact that Husqvarna comes back to its roots.

Things evolved together with the arrival of the 1980s and the bike would have looked a little more up to date thanks to its square headlight and the addition of as much plastic as possible. It so ended up looking like a trail ride that had stepped-up to the challenge and boy it did! The 80s had a great impact on the Husqvarna name and the WR had much to do with that. With the years passing by, the manufacturer oriented on keeping the weight down so they removed the unneeded plastic, making the bike look a little more athletic.

The mechanics had evolved a lot so the engine was living the days of glory of the two-stroke generation.

The early 1990s gave a green light to stylistic and mechanical upgrade so you will identify a 1992 model and say “it’s a husky” with no doubts. Disc brakes were the key and the engine revved higher than ever before. It is also the year when they went for the Blue and Yellow color schemes which were changed all through the 90s, with their reintroduction together with the new millennium.

Until 2006, minor changes were done to the bike as the manufacturer planned a major revamp for 2007 model year. Riders could now enjoy a new seat, new tank and new panels and the red and white cover was added. Fitted with new instrumentation and redesigned handlebars, the WR 250 was a totally new and yet filled with history motorcycle.

One filled with heritage motorcycle that proves able to be taken even further for 2008 model year as it receives its bag of goodies happily and makes no compromise when it comes to exploiting the hell out of them. This is the bike that made us thrilled when hearing about testing a Husqvarna model and I reckon there will be many more.
