Husqvarna have unveiled their range of Enduro bikes for 2020, with developments to chassis, suspension, and engines in the TE and FE range to further improve upon their reputation as one of the top manufacturers.
Aimed at delivering exceptional levels of performance, class-leading power throughout the range, and equipped with updated WP suspension, all of the 2020 models feature updated ergonomics to go with their progressive designs. New chassis technology is the base for a complete redesign, allowing for new shock linkages, updated bodywork, improved fork and shock settings, and premium components to be used as standard.
The new 2020 range continues the brand’s approach to innovation, with the biggest feature across all the new bikes being the hydroformed, laser-cut, robot-welded chassis’, and composite carbon fiber subframes. Along with the extra torsional strength the frames provide, they remain extremely lightweight. New aluminium cylinder head mountings improve handling, added to the updated 48mm WP XPLOR front forks and WP XACT rear shock offering full adjustability, with more consistent damping and better resistance to bottom-out. The forks are split duty, with one side offering damping control and the other providing rebound. The new rear shock linkage system offers reduced seat height, better traction, and improved stability, meaning riding over technical terrain has never been easier.
The all-new TE 150i features TPI fuel injection, adapted from the TE 250i and TE 300i, sharing the same proven 2-stroke technology. Providing all the convenience and simplicity of a modern 4-stroke at a fraction of the weight, the TPI system eliminates the need for re-jetting for ambient changes, as well as including a pump-driven oil mixing system, meaning riders no longer need to worry about premixing fuel. The TE 150i also includes an electric starter, for added ease of use. Combining a nimble, lightweight chassis with a compact and powerful engine, the TE 150i delivers maximum performance.
Both the TE 250i and TE 300i benefit from updated cylinder design, for superior 2-stroke performance, as well as a 1-degree lower engine mounting for improved front-end traction. The entire 4-stroke range features extensive upgrades as well, for increased performance and rideability. The FE 450 and FE 501 both receive new cylinder heads, and the FE 250 and FE 350 both receive extensive revisions, similar to their 2-stroke brethren. The entire Enduro range also features new exhaust systems, for optimal performance and durability.
The entire range features new distinctive slimmed down bodywork and bold new graphics, showcasing Husqvarna’s attention to detail and pioneering design direction.
