2013 Husaberg TE 250

Posted on by  

The Husaberg TE 250 is a rugged dirt bike powered by a 1-cylinder 2-stroke, water-cooled engine with reed intake and exhaust control. The engine has a 249 cc displacement and is paired with a six speed transmission. Husaberg TE 250’s unit is one of the most powerful and sportiest two-strokes in its class and features adjustable exhaust control and selectable ignition curves which allow you to adapt the motorcycle to various track conditions.

The motorcycle is built on a newly developed double-cradle, central tube frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel profiles which is able to withstand high levels of torsional stiffness. As far as the suspension department is concerned, the Husaberg TE 250 is equipped with a front WP Suspension Up Side Down fork and a rear WP suspension shock absorber with adjustable rebound damping and high and low-speed compression damping.

The stopping power is assured by Brembo brakes which are arguably the best in the business.

Overview

Husaberg TE 250

It doesn’t always need to be a 4-stroke. The TE 250 is an established force in the E2 class, the most hotly contested class in enduro sport. And because "good" is by no means "good enough" at HUSABERG, the bike also offers even more direct power development, intensified performance and a completely new chassis. Combine that with the standard 6-speed transmission and an electric starter, and you have a bike that will definitely get you where you want to go. Wherever that may be.

Perfect Ergonomics

Husaberg TE 250

Exhaust system

Specially designed for enduro use. Ensures controllable rideability at the same time as top performance. The aluminium silencer is fitted perfectly to the rear fender by means of a strong plastic sleeve.

Fuel tank

The polyethylene fuel tank with enduro-friendly ergonomics is the perfect point of contact with the bike on the 2013 TE models. 10.7 l capacity allows extended enduro tours to be completed comfortably.

Equipment

Not only the technology, but also the equipment on the HUSABERG TE 250 leave nothing to be desired. Skid plate and hand guards are standard on all 2-stroke models of the 2013 model range, as is riding pleasure. But for those who want even more, there’s the Pure Tech accessory range.

Bodywork

Enduro riding means becoming one with your bike. The completely revamped seat and tank/spoiler profile lets machine and rider fuse into one. However, the TE 250 not only excels with enduro-specific ergonomics, but also with such technical highlights as grip recesses well protected from dirt.

Air box

There are two good arguments for the new air box: optimum protection from dirt and an adequate air supply to the engine. A separate intake snorkel has been developed for each displacement to optimise airflow, thereby ensuring maximum engine performance. The generously sized TWIN AIR filter is replaced conveniently in a matter of seconds via the air box side cover and with no tools at all, of course.

Framework

Husaberg TE 250

Subframe

All supporting parts of the rear end of the TE 250 are made from high strength, injection-moulded plastic. The three elements are bolted together and link perfectly with the surrounding bodywork. The ribbing and toughness of the material allow the highest levels of stability to be achieved at a minimum weight for all the HUSABERG enduro models.

Frame

A newly developed double-cradle, central tube frame made from chrome-molybdenum steel profiles ensures high levels of torsional stiffness. Precise cornering characteristics and high tracking stability are the result of this design. Shocks originating from the rear wheel are absorbed even better thanks to reduced levels of lateral stiffness.

Swingarm

A perfectly balanced aluminium design: The swingarm is 300 g lighter and, with its higher side profiles, it boosts the frame and shock suspension system with targeted flexibility.

Triple clamp

Meticulously finished triple clamps, machined from a solid block: Not only do they look classy in anodised black; they are also designed in such a way that they support the responsiveness and sliding behaviour of the new fork with their special shaping. The result? Even better offroad handling. The triple clamp offset on the 2013 HUSABERG TE 250 has been reduced from22 mm to20 mm in order to provide even better stability in the corners.

Big Power

Husaberg TE 250

Clutch

The perfect clutch delivers extremely precise application. This is achieved by means of a compact and extremely robust clutch featuring hub damping and preload with a single diaphragm spring instead of the several conical springs used previously. And to top it all: An additional 250 g of weight is saved thanks to the durable steel cage design.

Carburettor

It may not be new, but it’s still very good. The KEIHIN flat-slide carburettor ensures direct power development and lets the bike’s performance come into its own.

Reed valve block

Reacts directly. Provides uniform power development and a longer service life. That’s the V-FORCE 4 reed valve block.

Engine

The HUSABERG TE 250 is one of the most powerful and sportiest two-strokes in the battle with the 450cc four-strokes. Scintillating power development and further improved peak performance packed into a completely new chassis make it even more competitive. Electric starter and 6-speed transmission are standard. Adjustable exhaust control and selectable ignition curves provide the rider with the opportunity to adapt the motorcycle perfectly both to his personal riding style and different track conditions.

Starter

The ultimate comfort for enduro aces: the electric starter.

Outdoor Engineering

Brakes

Extremely precise application and excellent braking performance. That is exactly what you get from the BREMBO®brakes and lightweight wave brake discs of the HUSABERG TE 250.

Fork

Very finest enduro technology: the 48 mm 4CS closed-cartridge fork from WP SUSPENSION. This fork overcomes extremely rutted tracks and other such major obstacles with the greatest of ease. Developed in close collaboration with the factory team, the patented 4-chamber system (4CS) from WP provides a decisive advantage in terms of responsiveness and constant damping. Another benefit: servicing the fork is extremely easy.

Wheels

Wheels with CNC-machined hubs, high-end DID rims and new aluminium spoke nipples. An unbeatable weight advantage for the 2013 HUSABERG TE 250.

PDS suspension

The shock absorber has settings tuned individually to the new frame and each displacement, guaranteeing comfort and optimal suspension. Adjustable rebound damping and high and low-speed compression damping allow individual adaptation of the suspension to the terrain and rider.
