HUSQVARNA – ALL NEW BIKES FOR 2012!
Check them out below. . .
WR250: an affordable classic
The latest version of the Husqvarna WR250 benefits from the same updates common to the 2012 range: chassis painted black, anodised silver Excel hubs and redesigned graphics. Because after many years of honourable service and continuous development, culminating in the adoption in the previous version of the Kayaba fork and the new Ducati Energy ignition, the WR250 has reached a level of efficiency and reliability such that no further changes were deemed necessary. Outstanding performance, exceptional reliability coupled with affordability. This 250 cc has all the winning traits, including the joy of off-road on a small budget. The advantages of a big two-stroke engine!
WR300: the winning alternative!
One thing is sure: the Husqvarna CH Racing Team riders like to go against the grain. The WR300 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 WR300, 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 WR250. When in 2008 it entered the Husqvarna price list as a model, the WR300 was immediately taken to heart by professionals and fans alike.
Husqvarna TE250: world beater
To win a world championship is one thing, and no small feat, but to stay on top is more difficult. Meo’s victory in 2010, the rising star of Seistola and recent wins by Salminen confirm the talent of these top class riders and the quality of the Husqvarna TE250.
TE310: the winning choice of Antoine Meo
A choice of weapon you wouldn’t expect, and the one chosen by Antoine Meo. The French champion chose the Husqvarna TE310 to contest the E2 enduro category, against competitors racing with significantly more powerful engines (up to 450 cc). A courageous choice that is already becoming racing legend, and explained by the effectiveness of a rare balance of performance, weight and manoeuvrability. Just as suitable for the passionate amateur racer in challenges among friends, as it is for the wily and determined Husqvarna team champion.
Husqvarna TE449: evolution of the species
The experience gained over the last year has made the new TE449 an even more competitive bike. The basic profile is unchanged, the 449 is still the bike that inspires love at first sight, with all the innovative technical features that put it amongst the market leaders in the sector. It was already exclusive, now it has become more streamlined and efficient.
Husqvarna TE511: the engine that pulls no punches.
This is no toy. Horsepower is one thing the TE511 does not lack, if anything the problem is to keep the horses in check. This is why all design aspects of the machine have been studied and evaluated with one thing in mind: making the TE511 easier to ride.
Husqvarna CR125: 2 stroke sound and weight
Ever since Chicco Chiodi’s double world champion win, Husqvarna has never stopped refining the CR125. Never! The new CR125 comes from a long and noble tradition, the result of amazing victories and attention to the needs of young riders, riders who can now find in dealerships the new 2012 Husqvarna CR125. This tried and tested, reliable bike which is not only competitive on the track but also in the showroom with a price that is highly accessible for a bike that has it all.
Husqvarna TC250: Developed at world championship level
The return of Husqvarna to the MX World Championship has already produced its first results. The experience gained at the World MX2 Championship has now been incorporated into the new Husqvarna 2012 model TC250. The collaboration between the factory R&D technicians and the Ricci Racing team led to the development of important updates, which bring the TC250 to the top of its category. Both to the engine a real jewel at only 22 kg! – and the mechanical design, and all modifications which will be immediately appreciated by riders of every level and experience. Just try it.
Husqvarna TC449: a different style
The new TC449 explores beyond the horizon, perfecting the concepts introduced last year: tank below the seat to improve the centre of gravity, airbox high in the frame to take in fresh and clean air, and above all, the swing arm pivot coaxial with the gear box output shaft, reducing almost to zero the effects of chain drag.
The TXC250 is made for the trail, but bred for competition!
With plenty of influence from its TC motocross counterpart, Husqvarna focused on gaining maximum performance from the 2012 TXC250. New ignition timing, heavily revised fuel injection and all‐new Leo Vince exhaust make for a more aggressive power output. Chassis upgrades also enhance the TXC250′s overall performance.
Desert Master: TXC511
Husqvarna made a name for itself in the desert and the TXC511 lives up to its open class heritage in spades! Look for 4-time USDR champ Nick Burson to defend his #1 plate on this powerful, well handling machine!
CR50 – for the kids
The essence of a real dirt bike in miniature. This is the nature of the new Husqvarna CR50, the « mini » that has everything you need to make your debut as a real rider. Liquid cooled two stroke engine, disc brakes, adjustable suspensions, steel chassis with the same shape as the Husqvarna racing bike, single cylinder engine with a clutch that can be adjusted according to the rider’s ability.
Husqvarna CR65: A serious start to a racing career
With the introduction of the 2012 CR65 young champions can take to the track with the right bike and a brand they will learn to love – because in addition to its top-of-the-class performance, it has the same lines and layout as the TC449. A « great » bike for great riders, the new CR65 has 14/12″ wheels, 6 speed gearbox, and above all, suspension that is externally adjustable for rebound and compression damping. For Husqvarna the CR65 is not « like a motocross bike », it is a motocross bike!
