For 2008, Husqvarna orientated on providing a better riding position, improved handling and stress on the frame, as well as delivering more powerful engines. It succeeded by moving the footrest forwards by 15mm and adjusting a steering angle between 26° and 28° while the rear suspension is brand new. But still, the masterpiece remains the fuel injected engines fitted on the TE450 and TE510. They have also been improved for better functionality and reliability.
For 2008 Husqvarna takes all its Enduro models to a whole new level and the TE 250 is one of the priorities. The key to its success is, of course, the fuel injection system which makes the bike feel like it is on steroids, but we shouldn’t neglect the fact that all that muscle is being properly valued by a completely new chassis.
Husqvarna takes the WR 250 to a whole new level by improving the way it steers with the adding of new 45mm Marzocchi forks, new tapered Tommaselli handlebars with no cross bar and adjustable steering plate. But what’s most important is what first launched this model, qualities like reliability, two-stroke power and loads of fun.
Introduced to be ridden across the North America terrain, both these completely new models use a unique recipe that implies taking the best of both motocross and off road worlds. As a result, the TXC 450 and TXC 510 come fitted with a TC motocross engine offering better grunt and a better suited powerband, but with the convenience of an E-starter and the benefits of a six-speed transmission.
A combination between motocross and Enduro, the brand new TXC is designed for the North American market and takes the best of both worlds: the TC motocross engine attached to a six-speed transmission, both electric and kickstart assemblies and the 18” wheels which get it over rocks with great ease.
