For a long time the Husqvarna 300 was simply a suped-up version of the WR 250. However after it was launched on the market as a series model, the WR 300 had instantly attracted a lot of fans. The Husqvarna WR 300 has become even more appreciated after it helped Sebastien Guillaume to earn a place on the podium of the E3 class at the International Six Days Enduro Championship.
The secret behind the WR 300’s success is a capable 2-stroke single cylinder engine with a displacement of 293.1 cc. The engine is combined with a constant mesh 5-speed gearbox and a 9.5 liter fuel tank.
The motorcycle sits on front 21 inch and rear 18 inch wheels wrapped in 90/90 - 21" and 140/90 - 18" tires respectively. The wheels are combined with front Kayaba upside-down telescopic open cartridge fork and a rear Sachs single hydraulic shock absorber with spring preload adjustment, rebound and compression damping adjustment

One thing is sure: the Husqvarna CH Racing Team riders like to go against the grain. The WR 300 is the bike of choice for Sebastien Guillaume. A choice that might seem daring, but the French champion –surrounded by big, powerful 500 cc four-stroke machines - has for years taken his place on the podium of the E3 class at the International Six Days Enduro Championship. Because Guillaume likes his enduro tough, for real men, and that means the Husqvarna WR 300, designed specially on the basis of his experience at the WEC. Indeed for a long time the Husqvarna "300" was simply a suped-up version of the WR 250.
