Revolutionary TE 250i/300i Fuel-Injected Machines Headline Seven Model 2018 Enduro Line-Up

May 30, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Adding a significant benchmark to their timeline for model year 2018, Husqvarna Motorcycles introduce the next generation of 2-stroke machines – the all-new, fuel-injected TE 250i and TE 300i. Offering unprecedented advantages in terms of performance, rideability, fuel consumption and ease of use, the introduction of fuel-injection by Husqvarna Motorcycles is a bold new step into the future of offroad motorcycling.

ogether with the fuel-injected 2-strokes, Husqvarna Motorcycles present a heavily updated range of TE and FE machines for model year 2018. Collecting feedback from top-level competition and combining it with extensive research, the brand’s engineers ensured that the 2018 TX 125, FE 250, FE 350, FE 450 and FE 501 remain true to Husqvarna Motorcycles’ commitment to offer premium motorcycles across their enduro range.

NEW GENERATION 2-STROKES

Perfectly embodying Husqvarna’s pioneering spirit, the new from the ground up fuel-injected TE 250i and TE 300i machines feature engine technology that revolutionises the field of 2-stroke enduro motorcycles. Featuring a pair of fuel injectors positioned at the transfer ports, the new system delivers the perfect amount of fuel into the engine at all times, across all conditions. Offering a significant reduction in fuel consumption and emissions, it also provides a smooth and clean power delivery on both machines.

With the injectors delivering the fuel mixture downwards into the transfer port, the system ensures a much more efficient combustion. Carefully placed at the rear of the cylinder, a special tube relays intake pressure data to the new ECU. Gathering information from the throttle position sensor, the air and intake pressure sensors, together with the crankcase pressure and water temperature sensors, the ECU automatically compensates for temperature and altitude changes eliminating the need to modify carburettor jetting.

Vital for internal engine lubrication, the 2-stroke oil is stored in a separate tank thus eliminating the need for pre-mixing. With its filler tube running through the frame, the 0.7 lt tank contains oil for five full tanks of fuel depending on conditions. Controlled by the EMS the oil pump delivers the ideal amount of oil reducing waste as well as excessive smoke.

TE 250i/300i FUEL INJECTION HIGHLIGHTS

=> Fuel injectors at the transfer ports → Ideal amount of fuel in all conditions
=> Oil pump & oil tank → Convenient, eliminates pre-mix
=> 39 mm throttle body → Regulates air flow, TPS relays airflow data
=> New EMS → Modern engine management, no need for jetting changes
=> Standard map select → Customise power characteristics
=> Frame integrated oil filler cap → Simple refills

=> New intake snorkel → Adapted to throttle body

A COMPLETE LINE-UP

Combining the most advanced engine technology with a series of dynamic upgrades, all Husqvarna Motorcycles 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines set the benchmark in terms of handling, power, weight and aesthetics.

Developed by WP Performance System the front forks are specifically designed for enduro riding. For MY18, the forks feature new outer tubes offering improved flex characteristics and reduced friction. A stiffer setting also provides extra sensitivity and improved bottoming resistance.

Also new for MY18 are the Magura front and rear brake systems. Featuring a similar layout to the design used on previous model Husqvarna enduro bikes, each system features optimal sensitivity and a progressive feel while retaining the highest level of performance. Second to none in terms of functionality and style, the new ProTaper handlebars feature class-leading fatigue resistance while adding minimal weight.

MY18 ENDURO HIGHLIGHTS (ALL MODELS)

=> WP Xplor 48 front fork → new fork tubes & setting for added sensitivity & bottoming resistance
=> Magura brake callipers & GSK discs → Excellent sensitivity & progression
=> New ProTaper handlebar → Class-leading function & style

The new Husqvarna MY18 enduro range will be available worldwide from July 2017 onwards at all authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealers. For all details on pricing and availability, please refer to your national Husqvarna Motorcycles Subsidiary or Importer.

The Media Kit with the complete technical information and the full Image gallery will be released on June 26, 2017.

      Hey guys. Im rebuilding the too end in my 2017 TC 250. Should I hone the nikasil cylinder or not. There's no scratches really just a couple of tiny scuffs. Can't feel anything with my finger. Can still seem some cross eteching at the bottom.of the cylinder. There was about 70 hrs on the last piston 😅 Also should I take the power valve off and clean it out? Thanks

      I getting to the point where I need to replace the crank in my ‘89 Cr250. I cannot find one for that year. Are there any that will work? I saw something about a 92-01 crank but didn’t go into details.

      Hi just looking for some advise as i just bought a tm 300 2 stroke 2004 and unfortunately its overheated and damaged the piston and head so i was just wondering as im new to 2 strokes what kind of damage ive done and what else to check for and you’ll see the damage in the photos. For some reason the air filter has come off which i thought it would make it run a bit lean plus i did the fuel ratio at 40-1 rather than 33-1 so yeah my fault but im looking to repair the bike and to get it back running again.

      I have a 2014 KTM 300xc and recently put a P3 pipe guard on. Long story short, P3 sent me a defective pipe guard and it scratched up my expansion chamber. They were nice enough to send me a brand new one no charge (great company). Has anyone had any experience getting scratches like these out? I have tried scotch brite pads and mothers aluminum polish but no luck. 
      Side question: would a shop be able to refinish it or nickle plate it? I know nothing about these things but just figured someone on here would have the answer. TIA!
