– 2012 Husqvarna TXC310 Review
2012 Husqvarna TXC310
All-new model for 2012, the 310 displacement comes to the TXC line of race-inspired off-road motorcycles. A bored and stroked version of the 250, the 302cc fuel-injected four-stroke is a creature all its own capable of providing the best of both worlds – able to run with the 450s and maneuver with the agility of a 250.From your favorite woods rides to wide-open GP racing, Husqvarna’s exclusive Coaxial Traction System is designed to put the power to the ground. Speaking of power, delivery is seamless, thanks to a Keihin dual throttle body EFI system.
2012 Husqvarna TXC310 Features and Benefits
A bored and stroked version of the 250 motor, the 302cc fuel-injected four-stroke offers more aggressive power characteristics than its quarter-liter sibling, and fills a significant gap in the current range of off-road bikes.

Up front, the TXC line features premium Kayaba suspension on all three bikes. The 48mm closed-cartridge fork receives revised damping, making the TXC more capable than ever of tackling tough terrain while providing a supple ride for everyone to the casual trail rider to aggressive crosscountry racer.
