Cylinder head

The DOHC cylinder head features finger followers with a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating resulting in minimal friction and optimal performance. These actuate large steel valves (36.3 mm intake, 29.1 mm exhaust), which at the 11,500-rpm rev-limit open and close multiple times each second. This introduces the fuel/air mixture to the carefully designed combustion chamber for efficient and optimal power throughout the rev-range.

The 29.1 mm exhaust valves are a result of the engine design to deliver an optimized gas flow. Valve timings work perfectly in harmony with the camshaft.

For easy serviceability and maintenance of the engine, the camshaft bearing bridge is screwed and provides strength.

Engine

The SOHC engine is the perfect example of the advanced engineering techniques used by Husqvarna Mobility, offering class-leading power at an overall weight of just 63.9 lb (29 kg).

Mass-centralization is key to the engine design. Chassis engineers have positioned the engine closer to the center of gravity for exceptional handling and maneuverability. This was achieved by tilting the engine 2° backwards and repositioning the sprocket 3 mm lower when compared to the previous generation. Together with the benefits of mass centralization and reduced weight, the anti-squat behavior of the chassis was significantly improved.

2025 Husqvarna TE150
TE 150

Engine

All the latest innovations have been brought into the 2-stroke platform and the TE 150 engine is no exception. Offering an overall weight of just 41.4 lb (18.8 kg) (incl. oil, gear lever, clutch slave cylinder), the 2-stroke engine sets the performance benchmark for 150 cc enduro machinery. For youngsters through to professional racers, the TE 150 is the ultimate lightweight model on the market.

The lightweight engine is designed with a focus on torque, making it easy to ride for many different riders and their preferences. The significant advantage of the engine comes from the injection technology with noticeably strong power high in the rev range. Riders can rev the engine longer and higher without experiencing a sudden loss of performance as felt on the older TPI engine generation.

The engine is designed to centralize rotating mass for optimal operation with the chassis resulting in a light and agile handling feel. Together with the benefits of mass centralization and reduced weight, the anti-squat behavior of the chassis was significantly improved by disconnecting the backbone of the steel frame concept while the engine is mounted symmetrically on both sides.

The throttle body fuel injection system (Keihin 39 mm throttle body in combination with Vitesco EMS) and electronic exhaust control implemented on the 150cc enduro engine allows for a more compact engine design and free definable values for engine speed and load. The result is a tailormade power delivery for each gear and every situation.

Another focus when developing the engine was the serviceability. Draining noses for liquids, an oil level indicator and added service markers on the engine (▲) clearly show where to use washers, making maintenance and service easier than in the past.

The water pump concept includes a shaft featuring a drive wheel instead of the previous centrifugal regulator and is protected by the aluminum diecast water pump cover. The water pump concept is shared among all 2-stroke enduro engines, making it easy for dealers to supply spare parts in the rare case it’s needed.

Pinnacle of performance → high power output, 41.4 lb (18.8 kg)
Latest 2-stroke EFI technology (TBI)

Map 1 / white: hard pack (lean) – Map 2 / green: sand (rich)

Keihin Throttle body -> Massive step in quality and performance compared to older generation
Mass-centralization → significant benefits in handling and maneuverability
Easy serviceability of engine internals → added service markers and draining noses for liquids

Cylinder head

The cylinder head features an external water temperature sensor located within the tubing for a maximum level of accurate values. A “front” indication makes it close to impossible to mount the cylinder head the wrong way, which not only helps mechanics but also tech-savvy end customers servicing engines by themselves.

The combustion chamber inserts follow the same logic. Mixing up inserts from old generation models is now a thing of the past.

The 150 cc specific cylinder timing and porting results in a specific compression ratio for the entry-level enduro model.

“Front” indication on cylinder head → prevents incorrect installations
Specific combustion chamber insert → impossible to mix-up with insert of other models
Enduro-specific cylinder timing and porting → enduro typical compression ratio without compromises

Cylinder

The cylinder features a 58 mm bore. The highly innovative electronical exhaust control manages the opening of both, the main exhaust and lateral exhaust ports via specifically developed kinematics, activated via an actuator. On the TE 150, both the lateral exhaust ports and the main exhaust port open at the same time. The lateral exhaust ports open faster while the main exhaust port takes longer to open completely to deliver maximum power.

The results are a much better rideability, engine control, and a larger adjustability range of the engine characteristics. The power valve can be controlled according to the throttle position and engine rpms (vs. only engine rpms on mechanical system). Additionally, its auto-calibrating, meaning there’s no more hassle with wrong power valve adjustments.

The machined finish on the upper contour of the exhaust port ensures accurate port timing delivering unrivalled performance in every situation.

Electronical exhaust control → tailormade, linear, and predictable power delivery
Machined exhaust port → outstanding performance and controllability

Crankshaft

The crankshaft was designed with weight reduction in mind to increase the liveliness and response of the engine (approx. -300g compared to previous generation and the same as on the TE 125 model).

The perfect balance of rotating masses is achieved by balancing the weights of the crankshaft flywheel and the rotor. With this weight combination, vibrations are kept to an absolute minimum. The component is also positioned to ensure that the rotational mass created has very little effect on the handling of the motorcycle.

Lightweight crankshaft → responsive engine character
Combination of crankshaft and rotor → very little vibration

Crankcases

The TE 150 engine is designed with mass centralization and weight minimization as the main criteria. As a result, the crankcases have been designed to house the internal components of the engine in the perfect position to achieve the ideal center of gravity while adding the least possible weight. The casings are manufactured using a high-pressure die cast production process, resulting in thin wall thickness while retaining exceptional reliability.

The black powder coating provides additional durability and a premium look, while service markings and oil level markings improve the serviceability. Additionally, the engine is connected to the frame with symmetrical engine mounts (left and right side) resulting in a refined flex characteristic.

Light and compact crankcase, optimized mass-centralization
Symmetrical engine mounts
Easy serviceability of engine internals with added service markers and draining noses for liquids
Optimized crankcase pressure sensor: larger hose diameter, more robust against soiling with oil carbon particles, better signal quality and better engine load detection

Gearbox

The 6-speed gearbox is manufactured exclusively by Pankl Racing Systems ensuring the highest level of durability and reliability. The gearbox features specific enduro gearing while the gear lever features an innovative tip design that prevents dirt build-up. Gear shifting is made effortless by the optimized shift drum and shift fork. The shift shaft is optimally positioned for smooth and precise shifting. The lever design and the transmission ventilation concept rounds of the shift mechanism.

6-speed gearbox → manufactured by Pankl Racing Systems
Longer, Enduro specific gearing ratio
Shift drum and shift fork → optimized leverage, more smooth and precise shifting
Friction optimized shifting mechanism → less necessary lever force

DS Clutch

The TE 125 features a DS (Diaphragm Steel) clutch. The exclusive characteristics of this system include a single diaphragm steel pressure plate instead of traditional coil springs. The clutch basket is a single-piece of CNC-machined steel that allows the use of thin steel plates and contributes to the compact design of the engine. A shared clutch slave cylinder brings the advantage to dealers of keeping less spare parts stock as the design is used among all Husqvarna enduro models.

DS clutch → lightweight with consistent action and exceptional durability
Clutch slave cylinder → less spare parts stock for dealers

EFI (TBI)

The Husqvarna 2-stroke enduro models come with an electronics-controlled fuel injection. The Throttle Body Injection (TBI) was initially introduced with the MY23 2-stroke Motocross range.

In cooperation with Keihin, we developed a 39 mm throttle body fulfilling the needs of an innovative and state of the art 2-stroke enduro injection. The ECU is supplied by Vitesco and works in harmony with the Keihin throttle body by always delivering the right amount of air-fuel mixture. Therefore, the ECU continuously analyses water temperature, air temperature, ambient pressure, pressure within the crankcase, rpm, and throttle position to calculate the perfect air-fuel mixture for any riding situation.

Composite flaps on the outside of the reed valve case provide a perfect sealing for the intake tract. This design avoids fuel excess in extreme up or downhill sections, which could lead to overly rich engine settings while Boyesen Inc. supply the carbon membranes for the reed valve case.

A beneficial side effect of the electronic fuel injection and the ECU is the implementation of the innovative electronic exhaust control.

With all these innovative features it was also possible to introduce different engine maps on the 150 cc enduro engine. Map 1 is the standard, more mellow map for linear, predictable power, while map 2 is the more aggressive map for added throttle response and a crisper, explosive power output. Both maps can be selected via the Map Select Switch on the left side of the handlebar.

EFI by Keihin (39 mm throttle body) → optimal power delivery and performance in any condition
Reed valve case design → guarantees right air-fuel mixture even in most extreme up or downhill sections
Injectors with optimized Sauter Mean Diameter (SMD) → smaller droplets

Oil Injection

Additionally, the ECU controls the specific amount of oil injected into the throttle body. It’s not consistently a mix of 1:60 but varies pending on the riding situation and can be leaner or richer.

The TBI injection has the big benefit of a more homogeneous fuel/air mixture due to a later oil injection compared to the older TPI engine. The injection point is at the membrane flange while in the past (TPI) the position was at the throttle body. The oscillation of membranes increases the oil/fuel mix further and leads to an unreached level of atomization. As a result, the engines have a lower risk of seizing, a better internal combustion. and a better rideability in all conditions. The drawback is a higher fuel and oil consumption.

The engine character of the old TPI engine was not known for being very lively. Actually, quite often in low revs with low engine loads, “oil nests” were common, which led to delayed and sluggish engine responses. This is now a matter of the past and the engines are much more versatile, fulfilling the needs of different rider levels and use cases. From hard enduro to classic enduro.

E-Start

The full enduro range comes with E-Start only. A kickstart is not in place and cannot be retrofitted. The starter motor comes without any intermediate shaft, saving weight and allowing a compact engine design with perfect integration. A robust but also compact cover protects the starter motor from damage caused by roost or rocks. The 12.8V 2 Ah Lithium-Ion battery is placed under the seat close to the center of gravity. The engine can easily be put to life by pressing the combined start/stop button on the right side of the handlebar. A high-quality stator and pickup is built into the TE 150 engine for reliability and an efficient power supply for the electronics.

E-Start → less loss of time if the engine is stalled and user friendliness
Li-Ion battery → lightweight, 1 kg lighter than a conventional battery
High-capacity stator and pickup → reliable and provides an efficient power supply for the electronics

2025 Husqvarna TE250
TE 250

Engine

The 250 cc 2-stroke engine has for long been the best combination of unsurpassed power and lightweight construction. The simplicity and low maintenance cost of the 2-stroke motor has made it a favorite amongst riders for generations.

With an overall weight of just 54.6 lb (24.8 kg), the TE 250 engine sets the benchmark in the competitive E1 class and is the perfect 2-stroke machine to compete with 250 cc 4-stroke models.

The lightweight engine is designed to provide more torque than any previous 250 cc 2–stroke engine without losing its typical 2-stroke character.

The engine is designed to centralize rotating mass for optimal operation with the chassis resulting in a light and agile handling feel. Together with the benefits of mass centralization and reduced weight, the anti-squat behavior of the chassis was significantly refined on the current model by disconnecting the backbone of the steel frame concept with the engine mounted symmetrically on both sides.

The Throttle Body Injection (TBI) system (Keihin 39 mm throttle body in combination with Vitesco EMS) and the electronic exhaust control implemented on the TE 250 engine allows for a more compact engine design and free definable values for engine speed and load. The result is a tailormade power delivery for each gear and every situation.

Another focus when developing the engine was the serviceability. Draining noses for liquids, an oil level indicator and added service markers on the engine (▲) clearly show where to use washers, making maintenance and service easier than in the past.

The water pump concept includes a shaft featuring a drive wheel instead of the previous centrifugal regulator and is protected by the aluminum diecast water pump cover. The water pump concept is shared among all 2-stroke enduro engines, making it easy for dealers to supply spare parts in the rare case it’s needed.

Pinnacle of performance → high power output, 6 lb (24.8 kg)
Mass-centralization → significant benefits in handling and maneuverability
Easy serviceability of engine internals → added service markers and draining noses for liquids

Cylinder head

The cylinder head features an external water temperature sensor within the tubing for a maximum level of accurate values. A “front” indication makes it close to impossible to mount the cylinder head the wrong way, which not only helps mechanics but also riders servicing engines by themselves.

The combustion chamber inserts follow the same logic and mixing up inserts from different models is a matter of the past. All these details significantly improve the overall engine serviceability.

The enduro-specific cylinder timing and porting results in a high compression ratio and no compromise between the motocross and enduro ranges as each engine configuration is tailor made for its own use case.

“Front” indication on cylinder head → prevents wrong installations
Combustion chamber insert → impossible to mix-up with insert of other models
Enduro-specific cylinder timing and porting → enduro specific compression ratio without compromises

Cylinder

The cylinder features a 66.4 mm bore. The highly innovative electronic exhaust control manages the opening of both the main exhaust and lateral exhaust ports via specifically developed kinematics, activated via an actuator. On the TE 250 the main exhaust port opens before the lateral exhaust port opens to deliver maximum, yet controllable power.

The results are exceptional rideability, engine control, and a larger adjustability range of the engine characteristics (differences between the two engine maps).

The power valve can be controlled according to the throttle position and engine rpms (vs. only engine rpms on mechanical system). Additionally, its auto-calibrating, meaning there’s no more hassle with wrong power valve adjustments.

The machined finish on the upper contour of the exhaust port ensures accurate port timing delivering unrivalled performance in every situation.

Electronic exhaust control → tailormade, linear, and predictable power delivery
Machined exhaust port → outstanding performance and controllability

Crankshaft

The crankshaft was designed with weight reduction in mind to increase the liveliness and response of the engine. The perfect balance of rotating masses is achieved by balancing the weights of the crankshaft flywheel, the rotor, and the counter balancer shaft. With a perfect combination of these components, vibrations are kept to an absolute minimum. Engine internals are also positioned to ensure that the rotational mass created has very little effect on the handling of the motorcycle.

The TE 250 features a laterally mounted counter balancer shaft. This shaft significantly reduces vibrations resulting in a smoother and more comfortable ride with less rider fatigue.

Counter balancer shaft → significantly reduced vibration

Crankcases

The TE 250 engine is designed with mass centralization as one of the main criteria. As a result, the crankcases have been designed to house the internal components of the engine in the perfect position to achieve the ideal center of gravity while adding the least possible weight. The casings are manufactured using a high-pressure die cast production process, resulting in thin wall thickness while retaining exceptional reliability.

The black powder coating provides additional durability and a premium look, while service markings and oil level markings improve the serviceability. Additionally, the engine is connected to the frame with symmetrical engine mounts (left and right side) resulting in a refined flex characteristic.

Light and compact crankcases, optimized mass-centralization
Symmetrical engine mounts
Easy serviceability of engine internals with added service markers and draining noses for liquids
Optimized crank case pressure sensor: larger hose diameter, more robust against soiling with oil carbon particles, better signal quality, and better engine load detection

Gearbox

The 6-speed gearbox is manufactured exclusively by Pankl Racing Systems for the highest levels of durability and reliability. The gearbox features specific enduro gearing while the gear lever has an innovative tip design that prevents dirt build-up. An optimized transmission ventilation concept rounds out the shifting mechanism.

6-speed gearbox → manufactured by Pankl Racing Systems
Gear lever → smooth and precise shifting in all conditions
Friction optimized shifting mechanism in every detail → less necessary lever force

DDS Clutch

The TE 250 features a DDS (Dampened Diaphragm Steel) clutch. The exclusive characteristics of this system include a single diaphragm steel pressure plate instead of traditional coil springs. It integrates a damping system for better traction and durability. The clutch basket is a single-piece of CNC-machined steel component that allows the use of thin steel plates and contributes to the compact design of the engine.

EFI (TBI)

The Husqvarna 2-stroke enduro models come with an electronics-controlled fuel injection. The Throttle Body Injection (TBI) was initially introduced with the MY23 2-stroke Motocross range.

In cooperation with Keihin, we developed a 39 mm throttle body fulfilling the needs of an innovative and state of the art 2-stroke enduro injection. The ECU is supplied by Vitesco and works in harmony with the Keihin throttle body by always delivering the right amount of air-fuel mixture. Therefore, the ECU continuously analyses water temperature, air temperature, ambient pressure, pressure within the crankcase, rpm, and throttle position to calculate the perfect air-fuel mixture for any riding situation.

Composite flaps on the outside of the reed valve case provide a perfect sealing for the intake tract. This design avoids fuel excess in extreme up or downhill sections, which could lead to overly rich engine settings while Boyesen Inc. supply the carbon membranes for the reed valve case.

A beneficial side effect of the electronic fuel injection and the ECU is the implementation of the innovative electronic exhaust control.

With all these innovative features it was also possible to introduce different engine maps on the 250 cc enduro engine. Map 1 is the standard, more mellow map for linear, predictable power, while map 2 is the more aggressive map for added throttle response and a crisper, explosive power output. Both maps can be selected via the Map Select Switch on the left side of the handlebar.

EFI by Keihin (39 mm throttle body) → optimal power delivery and performance in any condition
Reed valve case design → guarantees right air-fuel mixture even in most extreme up or downhill sections
Injectors with optimized Sauter Mean Diameter (SMD) → smaller droplets

Oil Injection

Additionally, the ECU controls the specific amount of oil injected into the throttle body. It’s not consistently a mix of 1:60 but varies pending on the riding situation and can be leaner or richer.

The TBI injection has the big benefit of a more homogeneous fuel/air mixture due to a later oil injection compared to the older TPI engine. The injection point is at the membrane flange while in the past (TPI) the position was at the throttle body. The oscillation of membranes increases the oil/fuel mix further and leads to an unreached level of atomization. As a result, the engines have a lower risk of seizing, a better internal combustion. and a better rideability in all conditions. The drawback is a higher fuel and oil consumption.

The engine character of the old TPI engine was not known for being very lively. Actually, quite often in low revs with low engine loads, “oil nests” were common, which led to delayed and sluggish engine responses. This is now a matter of the past and the engines are much more versatile, fulfilling the needs of different rider levels and use cases. From hard enduro to classic enduro.

E-Start

The full enduro range comes with E-Start only. A kickstart is not in place and cannot be retrofitted. The starter motor comes without any intermediate shaft, saving weight and allowing a compact engine design with perfect integration. A robust but also compact cover protects the starter motor from damage caused by roost or rocks. The 12.8V 2 Ah Lithium-Ion battery is placed under the seat close to the center of gravity. The engine can easily be put to life by pressing the combined start/stop button on the right side of the handlebar. A high-quality stator and pickup is built into the TE 250 engine for reliability and an efficient power supply for the electronics.

E-Start → less loss of time if the engine is stalled and user friendliness
Li-Ion battery → lightweight, 1 kg lighter than a conventional battery
High-capacity stator and pickup → reliable and provides an efficient power supply for the electronics

2025 Husqvarna TE300
TE 300

The flagship TE 300 offers astonishing power in a light and agile package. While retaining exceptional reliability and low maintenance costs, the 300 cc 2-stroke engine features an innovative throttle body fuel injection and sets the benchmark for unrivalled power and lightweight construction. While offering the highest 2-stroke performance in the enduro range, the TE 300 is even more controllable and benefits from added convenience by eliminating the need for premixing fuel.

Engine

All the latest innovations have been brought into the 2-stroke enduro platform. With an overall weight of just 54.2 lb (24.6 kg), the TE 300 engine sets the benchmark when it comes to a weight/performance ratio. Many championships will see the TE 300 on top of the result sheets of the highly competitive E3 class, underlining this new era of 2-stroke technology.

The lightweight engine is designed to provide more torque than any previous 2-stroke engine without losing its typical high-revving, lightweight 2-stroke character.

The engine is designed to centralize rotating mass for optimal operation with the chassis resulting in a light and agile handling feel. The power train has been positioned in the same place as on the TE 250. Together with the benefits of mass centralization and reduced weight, the anti-squat behavior of the chassis was significantly refined on the current model by disconnecting the backbone of the steel frame concept with the engine mounted symmetrically on both sides.

The Throttle Body Injection (TBI) system (Keihin 39 mm throttle body in combination with Vitesco EMS) and the electronic exhaust control implemented on the TE 300 engine allows for a more compact engine design and free definable values for engine speed and load. The result is a tailormade power delivery for each gear and every situation.

Another focus when developing the engine was the serviceability. Draining noses for liquids, an oil level indicator and added service markers on the engine (▲) clearly show where to use washers, making maintenance and service easier than in the past.

The water pump concept includes a shaft featuring a drive wheel instead of the previous centrifugal regulator and is protected by the aluminum diecast water pump cover. The water pump concept is shared among all 2-stroke enduro engines, making it easy for dealers to supply spare parts in the rare case it’s needed.

Pinnacle of performance → high power output, 54.2 lb (24.6 kg)
Mass-centralization → significant benefits in handling and maneuverability
Easy serviceability of engine internals → added service markers and draining noses for liquids

Cylinder head

The cylinder head features an external water temperature sensor within the tubing for a maximum level of accurate values. A “front” indication makes it close to impossible to mount the cylinder head the wrong way, which not only helps mechanics but also riders servicing engines by themselves.

The combustion chamber inserts follow the same logic and mixing up inserts from different models is a matter of the past. All these details significantly improve the overall engine serviceability.

The enduro-specific cylinder timing and porting results in a high compression ratio and no compromise between the motocross and enduro ranges as each engine configuration is tailor made for its own use case.

“Front” indication on cylinder head → prevents wrong installations
Combustion chamber insert → impossible to mix-up with insert of other models
Enduro-specific cylinder timing and porting → enduro specific compression ratio without compromises

Cylinder

The cylinder features a 72 mm bore. The highly innovative electronic exhaust control manages the opening of both the main exhaust and lateral exhaust ports via specifically developed kinematics, activated via an actuator. On the TE 300 the main exhaust port opens before the lateral exhaust port opens to deliver maximum, yet controllable power.

The results are exceptional rideability, engine control, and a larger adjustability range of the engine characteristics (differences between the two engine maps).

The power valve can be controlled according to the throttle position and engine rpms (vs. only engine rpms on mechanical system). Additionally, its auto-calibrating, meaning there’s no more hassle with wrong power valve adjustments.

The machined finish on the upper contour of the exhaust port ensures accurate port timing delivering unrivalled performance in every situation.

Electronic exhaust control → tailormade, linear, and predictable power delivery
Machined exhaust port → outstanding performance and controllability

Crankshaft

The crankshaft was designed with weight reduction in mind to increase the liveliness and response of the engine. The perfect balance of rotating masses is achieved by balancing the weights of the crankshaft flywheel, the rotor, and the counter balancer shaft. With a perfect combination of these components, vibrations are kept to an absolute minimum. Engine internals are also positioned to ensure that the rotational mass created has very little effect on the handling of the motorcycle.
