TE 150 2017
FEATHERWEIGHT ENDURO

With a completely new design and replacing the TE 125, this is the ultimate lightweight enduro bike with a surprisingly powerful engine. New production processes allow thinner casings without compromising strength, while smarter shaft arrangement and a more compact gearbox centralise rotating masses and improve handling. It also results in a smaller, narrower and lower overall engine layout that is also much lighter. An innovative new power-valve design increases power throughout the RPM range.The TE models now all feature electric start. The 2017 2-stroke models all have a light new fuel tank made of translucent plastic for easy fuel level monitoring. Holding an impressive ten litres, the tank has a quick-release fuel cap, perfect for quick refuelling, making sure you cross the finish line ahead of the pack.

Features and Benefits

Engine
The new engine features an innovative construction featuring the latest in 2-stroke technology. As a result the engine delivers high levels of performance and usability. Additionally, the new engine is designed to improve mass centralisation resulting in better agility and reduced rider fatigue.
Cylinder and piston
The new cylinder features a 58 mm bore. Combined with an innovative power valve design that increases power throughout the RPM range, the cylinder also features a redesigned water jacket which improves cooling and increases durability. The new piston is designed to perfectly match the new cylinder layout and offer premium reliability.
Crankcase
High-pressure die cast production processes results in a thin wall thickness and a weight saving of 600g. In order to centralise mass, the new layout features a new shaft arrangement. The clutch shaft is now 27mm higher and the crankshaft 37mm higher reducing the effect of oscillating mass for more precise handling. The historical Husqvarna logo adorns the bronze finished crankcase covers.
Carburettor
The TE 150 features a 38mm flat slide Mikuni TMX carburettor replacing the previous Keihin model. This new carburettor provides a smooth and controllable power delivery with optimal performance over the entire RPM range. Additionally, the new Mikuni model is less sensitive to changes in temperature and altitude which reduces the need for setting changes in different conditions.
Chromoly steel frame
While keeping the same successful geometry from MY 16, the hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded frame is expertly crafted by WP Performance Systems. The 6mm wider and 2 mm lower steel tubes offer 20% higher torsional rigidity while longitudinal stiffness is reduced by 30%. The increased torsional rigidity improves stability and agility while reducing the longitudinal stiffness creates increased flexibility for better bump absorption and suspension functionality. The new frame weighs only 8.8 kg making it 0.6 kg lighter than its predecessor.
Composite carbon fibre subframe
The composite subframe is a design unique to Husqvarna motorcycles showcasing pioneering technology and innovation. This 3 piece component is made up of 30% carbon fibre making it remarkably light (1.4 kg) saving 1 kg over the previous design. Specific care is taken to create a calculated rigidity for optimal handling and rider ergonomics.
Functional bodywork
Distinctive and futuristic bodywork highlight the impressive leap forward for MY17, while striking pearl blue and electric yellow colours and graphics stylishly adorn the Swedish inspired design. With completely new ergonomics, rider control and comfort are improved allowing the rider to perform at the peak for longer periods of time. The seat has a low profile design with a new high grip seat cover which keeps the rider planted under hard acceleration and in slippery conditions.
Aluminium swingarm
The hollow, cast aluminium swingarm is designed to offer optimal stiffness and reliability while adding minimal weight. The machining above the rear axle allows the chain adjuster markings to be seen from above for easy maintenance.
WP Xplor 48
The WP Xplor 48 front fork is a completely new feature developed by WP Performance Systems specifically for enduro type riding. The forks consist of an open cartridge layout with a spring in each circuit and split damping functions. Compression can be adjusted from the left side and rebound on the right via clickers situated on the top of the fork tube. Additionally, with the standard pre-load adjuster, pre-load can be adjusted by the rider without the use of tools making the new system simple and easy to set up.
New WP rear shock
The WP DCC rear shock is designed to provide advanced damping characteristics while keeping to a compact and lightweight design. The new rear shock weighs only 3.7 kg which is 0.36 kg lighter than the previous version. With a pressure balance inside the shock, damping is improved resulting in greater rider comfort and handling while the outer contour of the reservoir increases cooling. The component is also fully adjustable and matched to a linkage system with a specific geometry to deliver the best possible traction and absorption.
Wheels and tyres
Black high-strength alloy rims by DID are coupled to CNC machined hubs using lightweight spokes and silver anodised aluminium nipples. Fitted to the wheels are new Dunlop Geomax AT81 tires which offer superior grip on a wide variety of terrain.
CNC machined triple clamp
The 22 mm offset black-anodised CNC machined triple clamps offer premium quality and style standard on all Husqvarna enduro models. The triple clamps are expertly crafted using superior techniques and materials to provide high levels of quality and reliability. A 2-way handlebar adjustment is standard and allows for customisable ergonomics.
Large capacity fuel tank
Hours of riding are guaranteed with a new, lightweight fuel tank made of translucent plastic. The design allows the rider to easily see how much fuel is in the tank while 10 litre tank features a quick release fuel cap for quick refuelling.
Magura hydraulic clutch
The high quality German-made clutch system guarantees perfect modulation of the clutch in every condition. This means that the play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and the function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions and over time. The Magura clutch also features even wear characteristics and is nearly maintenance-free.
Tool-less air filter access
The new airbox is designed with precisely positioned inlet ducts aimed at preventing air deformation and ensuring maximum airflow and filter protection. The air filter is easily accessed, without tools, by removing the left side panel. Easy maintenance is guaranteed by the Twin Air filter and filter cage design that features a simple fail proof mounting system for safe and accurate filter installation.
Brembo brakes
Class-leading Brembo callipers and controls with high quality GSK discs deliver superior stopping power instilling confidence in all situations. For MY17, the rear brake calliper uses a smaller piston diameter 24mm instead of 26mm, coupled with a 10mm longer rear brake lever the system delivers improved modulation and feeling.
