constant damping throughout the entire suspension travel

2011 Husaberg TE250 two stroke Dirt Bike

Tailor-made for the hard competition of the most competitive class in enduro sport, the E2.

The nippy and extremely powerful two-stroke engine reveals its strengths above all when the heavy four-strokes really start to sweat.

The only things that count then are weight, staying power, smooth power delivery and playful handling.

New handlebars from Neken, with the same shape as before, guarantees supreme stiffness and safety.

Classy triple clamps machined from a single piece are fitted as standard to all Husaberg models. This results in precise clamping of the fork tubes, which supports the flawless function of the forks.

The polyethylene fuel tank on the TE models has been designed for sufficient range combined with enduro ergonomics and hence conveys optimum contact with the bike.

With an 11 litre capacity, it is big enough for completing the longest race stages with ease and also allows extended enduro tours.

The latest upside-down forks from WP are equipped with “closed cartridge” technology. A sealed, internal damping cartridge provides for incomparable responsiveness, along with efficient and constant damping characteristics throughout the entire suspension travel.

The PDS shock has also been tuned in such a way that the setting completely satisfies all requirements in tough enduro use. Greater comfort and better shock absorption are not to be found anywhere.

And those who want to refine the tuning of their suspension have the option to adjust the rebound and compression damping in a matter of a few clicks. In addition, the PDS shock offers separate compression damping adjustment for high- and low-speed damping.

The clever liquid cooling system leads the water directly from the cylinder head through the frame triangle via a T-piece and straight to the radiators. This means simple mounting of the radiators, plenty of space under the fuel tank and therefore unhindered air circulation.

The nickel-plated exhaust pipe has been specially designed for enduro use and contributes significantly to the controllable rideability combined with the highest levels of performance. The aluminium main silencer manufactured in a two-component process is fastened perfectly to the subframe with a strong plastic sleeve.

The high-volume airbox optimally provides the engine with fresh, clean air. The generously sized Twin-Air foam air filter can be changed in a matter of seconds – with no tools at all.

    Sweet Dirt Bike! Husaberg has always made some super nice machines, my favorite is the Husaberg FE390. Especially when I need to be economical with my energy and when the going gets really tough. Its the youngest member of the Husaberg four-stroke family and offers smooth power development coupled with sufficient power for every situation in enduro use.

    Nice website!

    Yea but after seeing Mike Alessi pull off a couple of holeshots and top starts on his works 350 at the Hangtown National and recent GP at Glen Helen, I would rather have this production dirt bike it’s plenty fast, and powerful. And, as I expected, it revs much like a 250F, but with more torque, and produces tons of power across the board like a 450, but not quite as much. I don’t think the Husaberg TE250 would compare to the Mechanics on the KTM 350SX-F! Thats just me.

    Great site, Ill be back for more info!

    Greg Makes a good point the KTM 350SX-F is a wonderful machine! But The 249cc and 293.2cc Husaberg machines are electric- and kick-start and are equipped with a headlight, designed to compete in the E2 and E3 World Enduro Championship racing divisions. Now let me say this, it’s not all about the bike it’s more based on the rider and how much more endurance the rider has, if the rider is more endurance trained then he can push further on any bike street or dirt no matter what bike it is as long as it’s a fair comparison. If the rider is not trained for endurance then he/she will not be able to push the Motorcycle as far as some that has little no endurance training.

    Thank you for the great read!
