The Husqvarna TE 250R has conquered a lot of fans since its inception and many consider it one of the most capable bikes in its class. The motorcycle has already proven its value wining the 2010 and 2011 WEC (World Enduro Championship) E1, so it certainly deserves its good reputation. What even better, is that the company decided to improve this successful model even more. Thereby, the Husqvarna TE 250R received a new, high performance cylinder head and fuel injection system for 2013. As a result the bike gets improvements in power delivery and throttle response, as well as a significant 8% increase in both power and torque figures.
On the other hand, Husqvarna’s engineers have spent a lot of time to improve the motorcycle’s safety. One of the most significant upgrades made in this department is the fresh handlebar protection which is offered as standard equipment for 2013. The bike has also received stiffer radiators and a new magnet in the crankcase which improve the reliability.

The best gets better, the 2010 and 2011 WEC (World Enduro Championship) E1 winner picks up an all new, high performance cylinder head and fuel injection system for 2013 to offer Husqvarna’s most potent 250cc X-Light engine ever.
Improvements in power delivery and throttle response further enhance the 2012 enduro 250cc shootout winner (Australasian Dirt Bike magazine).
The significant 8% increase in both power and torque figures for 2013, combine with chassis and suspension refinements to the Husqvarna TE 250R to set the standard for the quarter litre enduro class of 2013.
This year also the TE310R received the readhead and the Keihin injection. These changes give the bike more power and torque through the whole rev range. Also thanks to these changes and ingition lock and the hot-start-lever are no longer needed.
The handlebarprotection which is serial euqipment of this bike increases the safety of the riding in a crash. But also the stiffer radiators and the magnet in the crankcase gurantee more reliablity even after crashes. The lightest bike in its class is now euqippet with softer handgrips which are glued on the handlebar.
All new high performance cylinder head featuring twin overhead camshafts and speed-resistant valve operation, utilising individual finger followers and four lightweight valves to deliver optimum performance, the power plant boasts all the right credentials for improved peak power and an outstanding torque delivery range.
Keihin fuel injection
The new Keihin fuel injection system features a new high output performance multipoint fuel injector combine with a 42mm throttle body to offer an optimized air/fuel ratio. The ECU features an enhanced fuel map that samples data across a broader rev range to deliver maximum performance and throttle response.
