Simply put, the new TE 300i is the perfect machine to explore new ground and go where few have gone before. The trusted 2-stroke is exceedingly simple to manage and for 2020, features a host of new developments which enhance its class-leading performance. With electronic fuel injection, smooth power delivery and impressive torque and power, the TE 300i retains the traits it's become renowned for. However, with advancements to the frame and bodywork, it offers an even more controllable and thrilling ride.
The 300 cc 2-stroke engine in the TE 300i is the flagship of the Husqvarna Motorcycles enduro range. Featuring precisely positioned shaft arrangements for optimal mass centralisation, a counter balancer shaft reducing vibration, a twin-valve controlled power valve and electronic fuel injection, it is the benchmark when it comes to enduro performance.
The 72 mm bore cylinder in the TE 300i features a twin valve-controlled power valve system which delivers smooth and controlled power throughout the RPM range. Exhaust port timing has been improved with the combination of an optimised, adjustable power valve drive. The cylinder also features two inlet positions at the rear of the cylinder where a pair of fuel injectors are mounted. This ensures efficient combustion resulting in reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
Designed for minimal weight, the die-cast crankcases on the TE 250i engine feature a thin-wall design. To centralise mass, the shaft arrangement has been precisely positioned to harness oscillating masses at the ideal centre of gravity. The counter balancer shaft is also specifically integrated, making for a compact design. Additionally, a new water pump casing improves cooling by optimising the flow of coolant.
Tailored specifically for each model using an innovative 3D design process, the header pipe on the TE 300i offers further improvements in geometry and performance. This allows for improved ground clearance, while a corrugated surface makes the header pipe resistant to impact out on the trail. The muffler also features a new aluminium mounting bracket, new internals and less dense packing material for improved noise damping and weight saving.
