Husqvarna Motorcycles Lift the Covers from their All-New 2017 Enduro Line-Up

 

July 11, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Husqvarna Motorcycles has today officially unveiled their complete line-up of all-new enduro models at the historic brand’s homeland in Huskvarna, Sweden.

 

Embodying Husqvarna’s pioneering spirit, each of the enduro machines has been redesigned from the ground up for 2017. Featuring the most advanced technology they set the benchmark in terms of handling, power, weight and aesthetics.

Introducing completely new design, reduced weight, best-in-class handling and dynamic ergonomics, Husqvarna’s 2-stroke TX 125, TE 250 and 300 and 4-stroke FE 250, 350, 450 and 501 models offer the ideal blend of functionality and Swedish-inspired style.

 

All 2017 models are equipped with new lighter and more compact engines, with the 4-stroke range featuring unique traction control system as standard. Fitted within redesigned frames the engines offer class-leading performance that’s specifically tailored to ensure a next level enduro riding experience.

 

Designed to blaze new trails, excel in all conditions and deliver a next-level enduro experience the 2017 Husqvarna enduro range represent the next step for the historic brand’s offroad motorcycle range.

 

MAJOR CHASSIS UPGRADES

 

Husqvarna’s 2017 enduro models feature new frames, which ensure increased rider comfort and confidence. Manufactured to the highest standards by WP Performance Systems, the lighter frames offer 20% higher torsional rigidity for improved stability and agility, while longitudinal stiffness is reduced by 30% for improved suspension functionality.

 

Remaining unique to Husqvarna, the composite subframe has been redesigned to fit the new chassis. Made with 30% carbon fibre, the subframe is 1 kg lighter than the previous part. All 2017 Husqvarna models have CNC machined triple clamps with an offset of 22 mm fitted as standard. Completing the chassis package the new swingarm has a specifically machined rear axle that allows for the chain adjuster markings to be seen from above.

A major update in the suspension department are the all-new WP Xplor 48 front forks. Featuring an open cartridge layout with a spring in each leg and split damping functions, all adjusters – including an innovative pre-load adjuster as standard – are situated on top of each fork leg. At the rear WP’s new DCC linkage shock is 0.36 kg lighter than the previous version.

 

Positioned 6 mm higher than on Husqvarna’s motocross bikes, new self-cleaning footpeg mounts prevent dirt build-up. Along with the new ODI lock-on grips and adjustable throttle assembly (4-strokes), they ensure an improved riding experience.

 

High quality Brembo callipers and controls combine with GSK discs to deliver optimum stopping power. The rear brake features a 24 mm piston (26 mm on previous models) and a 10 mm longer rear brake lever for better control while braking.

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.

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.

      Hey guys! Thinking about getting a husky TE 250 to start. Finally found a good offer for a 2010 TC husky turned to TE (was cross, now is road-legal). This guy wants 2000 dollars. No e-start. My question is: is the TC  a good bike for enduro? Is it good in the woods/trails? What about in General, is it a good bike? Would you buy it? Thanks!

      Hello - I recently rebuilt the top end on my 2017 TC125.  When taking off the left and right power valve covers, the insides of each were extremely dirty with dirt, and moisture deposits.
      The gaskets clearly did not do much to keep the crud out.  (The bike is new-ish - 20 hrs, and this is its first rebuild).  
      Anyone else have this issue?  I subsequently used gasket sealer on the gaskets, when putting back together.  
      Further....I noticed the radiator vent hose, leads to the inside of the right valve area.  In the attached photo, you can see the intake port sticking up above the valve area.  I was quite surprised by this design.  Clearly coolant overflow is entering the right valve area and contributing to gumming it up.  I also posted photos of the valve covers - you can see how dirty they are.
      This is my first dirt bike in 20 years.  My last was a 95 KX125 and I remember the coolant vent hose just venting to the open air, tied off down below the frame somewhere.
      Thoughts?

      Hi guys, I recently bought a second hand husky txc 250. I did a couple of bush rides on it and loved it. It gradually became harder to start, eventually I could only bump start it, it refused to start on the starter or kick regardless of the engine being hot or cold. And now it won't start at all. It will fire and rev a couple of revolutions and then die again if I try bump start it. Here is what I have checked so far :
      New iridium plug, sparking well.
      New fuel filter.
      Fuel pump working and pumping fuel
      Electrical connections cleaned with contact cleaner and connected well. 
      Fuses are good. 
      Temp sensor is good
      Efi throttle body is clean 
      Battery is charged up and strong.
      Exhaust is clear of obstructions
      Air filter new and clean. 
       
      Anybody got ideas? I guess I could pull the top off and check valve clearances? But I think this model is shimmed. Also the compression still feels great under the kicker. 
       
      Thanks for reading 
      Daniel
