WR 300 - HUSQVARNA. The WR300 started life as a transformation kit for the WR250 but in 2008 it became a fully fledged member of the Husqvarna family and has been hugely popular with enthusiasts of this category.

As a perfect replica of the machine raced by Seb Guillaume in Class E3 of the Enduro World Championship series was a real winner against its more powerful, bigger four-stroke rivals. The WR 300 always offers the rider progressive, useable power but, at the same time, is capable of superb performance when power alone is what counts.

Kayaba and Sachs components look after suspension and calibration has been carefully worked out so as to make the bike flexible and easy to handle on slower, rough surfaces. The new exhaust pipe has been completely redesigned taking advantage of lessons learned in the World Championships.
Like the whole 2010 Husqvarna range, the WR 300 has new stronger plastics and graphics.

The brand new WR 250 and WR 300 demonstrate Husqvarna’s ongoing commitment to two strokes.

Learned from World Enduro racing, a series of upgrades to the WR 250 and WR 300 have been incorporated in 2011.

Visible changes for both models include news graphics, new rear racing style mudguard with an integrated LED tail light and a new reinforced mounts for the headlight/front number plate.

Less visible, but even more important from a technical point of view is the new Ducati Energia ignition. The new ignition is responsible for a smoother power delivery and much improved performance for both WR 250 and WR 300.

Riders in Australia will appreciate the new thermostat which optimizes the working temperature of the engine.

Also both models come with new rear suspension settings, based on the World Enduro Championship bikes ridden by Sebastien Guillaume and Bartosz Oblucki and a new improved airbox.

For  the WR300 gains a revised ignition system to increase and smooth out the power as well as fresh new looks with the new IPD design graphics

Husqvarna and Enduro are intrinsically linked. They are connected by races, victories and mile after mile of off-road riding in the most extreme conditions. It is thanks to their years of experience that Husqvarna lead the field in this sector and continue to manufacture state-of-the-art machines.

The new 2011 range has been further improved by heeding the recommendations of official team riders such as Antoine Meo, Seb Guillaume and Bartoz Oblucki. Champion in their fields. Champions at testing.

Thanks to them, the new Husqvarna enduros now come with new suspension systems, new frames with improved handling, new exhaust pipes with improved engine response and there is also a completely new machine, the fuel-injected TE 250.
