Husqvarna releases new 2011 bikes

Tuesday July 27, 2010

Husqvarna revealed new 2011 models at a dealer meeting held at Mid-Ohio in conjunction with AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. The two new bikes, the WR250 and WR300, are both two-strokes and join the previously announced 2011 WR150 in the company’s two-stroke enduro models, according to a Husqvarna press release.

Both bikes have upgrades from the 2010 models, including graphics, a reinforced mount for the headlight/front number plate, a thermostat that optimizes the working temperature of the engine and rear racing mudguards with integrated LED tail-lights. The company says the bikes also feature the new Ducati Energia ignition system, which allows for smoother power delivery and improved performance.

Lot's of improvements like a whole new ignition.

Sebastien Guillaume and his factory WR300 is ripping up the (WEC) World Enduro Championship and he's been riding with a broken hand.

Here in the states Bobby Garrison won the World 2-Stroke Motocross Championship on a Mitch Payton/ProCircuit Husqvarna WR300.

The WR250 and the WR300 pretty much the same bikes.. only difference is the bigger bore on the 300.

John,

If he rode an 09 that was running like mine did initially then he is being kind. Probably one of Huskies worst initial launches was the 09 WR125. Once the motor is tweaked to work like it should they are awsome but until then they were the sh*ts.

Yes, it was a 09. It was bad and that's coming from a guy who has solely been riding 125's and 200's since 98'. The owner has spent big bucks and lots of time on it trying to get it dialed and no luck.

What did yours take to run properly? By properly I mean to compete with the KTM and Yamaha 125's, not 85's. :banana:

If they would have done a 6 speed, and new Frame in 11' I can pretty much guarentee I would be taking one home... Maybe next year? Yes they are 1k cheeper than the KTM but seams the KTM is worth the extra price (new frame (xc), electric starter, and 6 speed for 11')? They really need to do a ground up on this bike. I mean the frame has been the same for ... 15 years!?! And the engine... 25 years??!!?
