Low on weight and high on innovation, the TE 150 from Husqvarna Motorcycles combines high quality components, 2-stroke simplicity, and the latest technical innovations. The result is an exceptional enduro machine capable of mastering the toughest terrain. Incredibly agile thanks to its expertly crafted frame and advanced WP suspension, riders from beginner through to professional will feel in total control aboard the TE 150, able to ride freely and to the very best of their ability. Highlighting Husqvarna Motorcycles’ continued development of the enduro range the Swedish-inspired dark blue and electric yellow graphics, together with a metallic blue frame, create a distinctive look.
The TE 150i has inherited the same fuel-injected technology from the bigger TE 250i and 300i. This adds the convenience of a 4-stroke engine by eliminating the need to premix fuel or adjust jetting for altitude. The engine also uses specific shaft arrangements, which are designed to harness the rotating mass of the engine for nimble handling. This, among other developments, makes it a lightweight and compact engine providing usable enduro-specific power while maintaining the low-cost maintenance of a 2-stroke.
The TE 150i features a cylinder with a 58 mm bore and an innovative power valve design. This allows the lively 150 cc engine to deliver controllable power throughout the RPM range. The piston is designed to perfectly match the contour of the combustion chamber, delivering the highest level of 2-stroke performance. Additionally, the cylinder features injectors mounted at the inlet positions, which deliver the fuel downwards into the transfer port, guaranteeing excellent fuel atomisation. This ensures more efficient fuel combustion, reduced fuel consumption and improved emissions.
The new chrome-moly steel frame is expertly crafted using laser-cut, robot-welded, hydro-formed tubes, ensuring the highest level of precision and quality. While retaining the advanced geometry of its predecessor, it features an increase in longitudinal and torsional rigidity, for improved rider feedback, better energy absorption and increased stability. The cylinder head mountings are made of forged aluminium, further improving handling and comfort. The premium blue powder coated frame features standard frame protectors, providing extra durability.
The WP XPLOR 48 front fork is designed specifically for enduro riding. Its open cartridge layout has a spring in each leg with split damping functions. Compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right. Adjustment is via easy-to-access clickers (30 clicks) on the top of each fork leg. The standard preload adjusters allow for easier adjustment without the use of tools. The fork’s mid-valve piston delivers consistent damping, while the setting allows the fork to operate higher in the stroke for exceptional rider feedback and bottoming resistance. A new oil bypass in the outer tube reduces friction for a smoother, consistent travel through the stroke and a revised cartridge joint offers added damping performance.
Rear ShockUsing the same linkage progression found in the Husqvarna Motocross range, the rear end now sits lower, for improved control in extreme enduro conditions. The fully adjustable component delivers 300 mm rear wheel travel, as well as unrivalled traction, feeling and energy absorption.
All models come with a new BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch system. This ensures light action with perfect progression and reliable performance in all conditions and the hydraulic system is self-adjusting and almost maintenance-free. Furthermore, a new BRAKTEC brake system offers superior stopping power with outstanding sensitivity and modulation in conjunction with high-performance GSK wave brake discs.
The carbon composite subframe is unique to Husqvarna Motorcycles and showcases pioneering technology and innovation. Using 70% polyamide and 30% carbon fibre, the new 2-piece subframe saves 250 g for a total weight of just over 1 kg. Light, robust and now 50 mm longer, the new subframe delivers improved rigidity, handling and rider comfort.
The TE 150i uses a 39 mm throttle body which regulates the amount of air entering the engine via a butterfly operated by dual throttle cables connected to a new handlebar throttle assembly. 2-stroke oil is mixed with the air and enters the engine to lubricate the crankshaft, cylinder and piston. Additionally, a throttle position sensor (TPS) relays airflow data to the ECU which in turn calculates the amount of oil and fuel delivered to the engine while a bypass screw regulates the idling speed and a cold start device opens a bypass providing more air for cold starts.
