2015 Husqvarna TE 300
The Husqvarna TE 300 was carefully designed to overcome the most difficult tasks. Its agile chassis, strong engine and sturdy frame help it deal great with anything you throw at it.
The motorcycle is built around a 293.2 cc, 1-cylinder, 2-stroke, water-cooled engine with reed intake and exhaust control. The engine delivers a maximum output of 54 hp and is mated on a six speed, claw shifted transmission. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the carburetor setting has been revised for MY15 for smoother power delivery.
The engine is housed by a central tube frame made of chrome molybdenum steel tubing.
The stopping power is handled by a front disc brake with two-pot brake caliper and a rear disc brake with one-pot brake caliper.

Extreme Performance to Take on The World
The powerful and torquey 300cc 2-stroke engine makes easy work of extreme Enduro terrain, and combined with the lightweight chassis, gives the TE 300 an exceptional power-to-weight ratio. The astounding power and torque characteristics of the 300cc 2-stroke engine are ideal to get riders over any obstacle. Extreme performance and low maintenance costs together with top-of-the line components, quality construction, bullet-proof reliability and electric start. The TE 300 is the weapon of choice for attacking any terrain with peerless power matched to a light and nimble chassis.
2015 Husqvarna TE 300 Key Features:
With a 54 hp power output, the TE 300 is the most powerful 2-stroke engine available today. The torque characteristics and tractability allow riders to take-on extreme Enduro with confidence. The carburettor setting has been revised for MY15 and guarantees smoother power delivery. The TE 300 engine features a sophisticated exhaust valve that optimises power delivery and, combined with the Boyesen reed valve, offers excellent response and durability. The engine characteristics can be tailored to rider preference by varying the spring stiffness in the exhaust valve.
The CDI unit features two ignition curves that can be switched by changing the plug connection or via the Husky Power optional handlebar switch, modifying engine characteristics according to terrain and rider preference.
An innovative DDS (damped diaphragm steel) clutch system is fitted to achieve smooth action and easy control. The exclusive characteristics of this system include a diaphragm spring instead of coil springs, an integrated damping system for better traction and durability, and a strong inner hub for increased stability. Riders of all levels will appreciate the precise Brembo hydraulic system for perfect clutch modulation.
The TE 300 has an electric starter as well as a kick starter, underlining the extreme versatility and technology of the Husqvarna 2-stroke Enduro line-up. For MY15, the gearing on the electric starter has been revised for better and easier starting.
The strong and light chromoly frame is an exceptional partner for the powerful 2-stroke engine, and works in perfect harmony with the other jewels in the Husqvarna chassis. Although the overall frame design is the same on all the Enduro models, each model has slight variations in geometry and stiffness in key areas in order to tailor the behaviour of the bike to the varying engine characteristics and outputs. The engineers designed the frame with precise longitudinal flex that helps absorb impacts from the rear wheel, working together with the suspension and giving the rider greater feedback. The torsional rigidity has been calibrated to maximise sharp handling, and thus magnifying the intrinsic characteristics of two-stroke motorcycles.
The lightweight, three-piece polyamide rear subframe has been reinforced with an additional screw on the airbox side that improves the fitment between the left subframe arm and the airbox. The improved seal guarantees better performance and durability. The polyamide subframe is more flexible than a traditional aluminium rear subframe. Combined with the longitudinal flex of the frame and the rear linkage system, this gives riders a more comfortable and confidence-inspiring feeling on the bike, allowing them to push the limits in every condition and on any terrain. The inherent characteristics of the composite subframe allow the engineers to have unlimited opportunities of integrating features such as the airbox, electronics and rear grab handle.
Putting 2-stroke power to the ground can be tricky in certain conditions, so the engineers developed a single-piece cast swingarm that optmises traction even on the most difficult Enduro terrain. The flex characteristics feed precise information to the rider, instilling confidence and improving overall performance. Strong but light, the beautifully styled aluminium cast swingarm provides perfect stability and safety.
The Black DID rims shod with Michelin Enduro Competition tyres are kept firmly under control thanks to maximum feeling in extreme situations combined with amazing stopping power of the latest generation of Brembo brakes. Ergonomically perfect controls allow the rider to accurately gauge braking power to the 260mm and 220mm wave discs at the front and rear respectively.
Lightning Fast Handling:
When you think 2-stroke, you think "lightning fast handling"! The WP suspension components have been developed with exactly the same thought. The 48mm WP 4CS front fork employs 4 chamber technology that reduces weight compared to a typical closed cartridge fork, while maintaining the same performance levels. It provides a decisive advantage in terms of responsiveness, constant damping precision and handling, that perfectly matches the mind blowing agility of a 2-stroke Enduro bike. Additionally, the 4CS fork is completely adjustable to different terrain and conditions by simply twisting the dials on the top of the forks for rebound and compression damping settings.
The high performance DCC (Dual Compression Control) rear shock by WP is completely adjustable for rebound and high/low speed compression damping. The accurate construction and high quality components of the shock guarantee excellent and consistent damping characteristics over time.
The Husqvarna linkage system has excellent characteristics in fast and flowing sections, and excels on steep downhills. It offers great rider comfort in all situations and has great progressiveness in extremely rocky and bumpy sections. The versatile Husqvarna linkage system is sure to meet the need of riders of all levels, with a consistent, confidence-inspiring and light feeling chassis in every situation.
CNC Machined Tripe Clamps
The black anodised CNC machined triple clamps have been revised for MY15. The bottom clamp has been redesigned in order to mount the same front fender as the Motocross models, providing improved stability and mounting of the front fender. The stylish triple clamps combine looks with function and deliver maximum feedback to the rider under braking, in rough terrain and on jumps, relaying accurate information on the behaviour of the front end in every situation, increasing rider confidence. The R&D department’s efforts were focused on ensuring uniform clamping of the fork legs in order to distribute the forces evenly, maintaining the leg shape, and thus proper damping along the entire stroke.
A Perfect Match:
A complete range of accessories in the Husky Power catalogue complements the high quality standard equipment present on the TE 300.
A new front mask on the MY15 Enduro bikes evolves the Husqvarna look and houses a new front headlamp. The front fender is also new and is the same as the Motocross fender, for easier mounting. The slim and stylish lines of the side panels and radiator shrouds allow for optimal movement while riding, resulting in superior control, and faster and safer riding.
The harder and more durable seat cover improves grip and also gives the seat a firmer feel, improving comfort and feeling.
The handguards now feature a new improved compound of the two-component mould for better impact resistance.
