REVOLUTIONARY 2-STROKE.

A revolution in 2-stroke technology, the TE 250i takes the simple, low maintenance 2-stroke and makes it even simpler. With the addition of electronic fuel injection, fueling is self adjusted meaning the need for jetting changes at different altitudes and temperatures is eliminated ensuring a perfectly controlled power delivery every time. Additionally, 2-stroke oil is pumped independently at regulated ratios eliminating the need to pre-mix fuel and oil meaning less preperation time and more time on the trail.

Husqvarna Motorcycles are taking a big leap forward, introducing a revolutionary electronic fuel injection system on their TE 250i and TE 300i 2-stroke enduro models. This new technology redefines both the market and future of 2-stroke offroad competition motorcycles, cementing Husqvarna Motorcycles’ position as pioneers in the enduro sector.

Offering unprecedented advantages in terms of performance the TE 250i and TE 300i models are now even more manageable with increased control and convenience. With fuel injection bringing serious benefits in terms of added ease of use, this new technology eliminates the need for oil premix and jetting changes.

Retaining the much-loved 2-stroke character, the two new models also benefit from reduced emissions and a notably lower fuel consumption that seriously increases the bikes’ autonomy for long days on the saddle.

Combining advanced engine technologies with a series of newly-introduced, dynamic upgrades, Husqvarna Motorcycles’ engineers have ensured that the all-new TE 250i/TE 300i machines will continue setting the benchmark in terms of handling, power, weight and aesthetics.

Enjoying over 100 years of uninterrupted manufacturing while developing some of the world’s first offroad production machines, Husqvarna are true enduro pioneers. A dominant force in international competition since the late ‘60s, Husqvarna has always been a great advocate of 2-stroke technology.

Adding to their long list of ground-breaking innovations, for model year 2018 Husqvarna Motorcycles introduce their next generation fuel-injected 2-stroke TE 250i and TE 300i machines. Together with an extended list of refinements designed to further improve the performance of all TE models, the all-new 2-strokes feature revolutionary technology in the offroad competition segment.

This pioneering electronic fuel injection system offers unprecedented advantages in terms of performance, rideability, fuel consumption and ease of use. The introduction of this new technology by Husqvarna Motorcycles is a bold new step into the future of offroad motorcycling.

NEW GENERATION 2-STROKES

Perfectly embodying Husqvarna’s pioneering spirit, the new from the ground up fuel-injected TE 250i and TE 300i machines feature engine technology that revolutionises the field of 2-stroke enduro motorcycles. Featuring a pair of fuel injectors positioned at the transfer ports, the new system delivers the perfect amount of fuel into the engine at all times, across all conditions. Offering a significant reduction in fuel consumption and emissions, it also provides a smooth and clean power delivery on both machines.

With the injectors delivering the fuel mixture downwards into the transfer port, the system ensures a much more efficient combustion. Carefully placed at the rear of the cylinder, a special tube relays intake pressure data to the new ECU. Gathering information from the throttle position sensor, the air and intake pressure sensors, together with the crankcase pressure and water temperature sensors, the ECU automatically compensates for temperature and altitude changes eliminating the need to modify carburettor jetting.

Vital for internal engine lubrication, the 2-stroke oil is stored in a separate tank thus eliminating the need for pre-mixing. With its filler tube running through the frame, the 0.7 lt tank contains oil for five full tanks of fuel depending on conditions. Controlled by the EMS the oil pump delivers the ideal amount of oil reducing waste as well as excessive smoke.

2018 Husqvarna TE250i Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE
The 250cc and 300cc 2-stroke engines set the benchmark for unrivalled power and lightweight
construction. The engines feature precisely positioned shaft arrangements for optimal
mass centralisation, a counter balancer shaft to reduce vibrations, a twin-valve controlled
power valve and a 6-speed enduro gearbox.

CYLINDER
For MY18 two inlet positions are located on the transfer ports at the rear of the cylinder
where a pair fuel injectors are mounted. The injectors deliver the fuel downwards into the
transfer ports, which guarantees excellent atomisation with the air travelling upward to the
combustion chamber. This ensures a more efficien burn of the air/fuel mixture resulting in
reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
The 66.4mm (TE 250i) and 72mm (TE 300i) bore cylinders feature twin valve controlled
power valve systems, which deliver smooth and controlled power throughout the RPM
range. For different conditions and rider preference, alterations to the power delivery can
be made by simply changing between the three supplied springs.

PISTON
The lightweight piston is perfectly matched to each cylinder
transmitting minimal oscillating mass and ensuring high levels
of reliability and performance.
Piston – high reliability and performance

ENGINE CASINGS
Both engines are designed to improve mass centralisation.
As a result, the lightweight, die-cast engine casings are developed
to accommodate the shaft arrangements in the ideal
position, centralising oscillating mass and improving ride-ability.
Additionally, the counter balancer shafts are integrated in a very
compact manner having little effect on the overall design.
Engine casings – mass centralisation, improved rideability

COUNTER BALANCER SHAFT
The engines house a laterally mounted counter balancer
shaft. The balancer significantly reduces vibration resulting
in a smoother and more comfortable ride.
Counter balancer shaft – significantly reduced vibration

CRANKSHAFT
The crankshafts feature a 72 mm stroke and are balanced in conjunction with the counter balancer shaft for
minimum vibration. By incorporating a heavier ignition rotor, the crankshafts produce more inertia than on the
TC 250 MX model, which improves control in the lower RPM range.

GEARBOX
A 6-speed gearbox features enduro specific ratios with an innovative shift lever reducing dirt build up and
guaranteeing easy operation in all conditions.
6-speed gearbox – Enduro specific ratios

CLUTCH
The TE 250i and TE 300i feature a DDS (damped diaphragm steel) clutch. The clutch uses a single diaphragm
spring instead of the more common coil spring design, resulting in a much lighter clutch action. This design
also incorporates a damping system that increases both traction and durability. Assisted by the Magura hydraulic
clutch, the system provides a light and modular feeling, which is almost maintenance and adjustment free.
DDS clutch – light action with integrated damping system, perfect traction & reliability
Magura hydraulic system – light & modular clutch action, almost maintenance free

STARTER
Both models are fitted with an electric starter located below the
engine ensuring the system remains well protected. Additionally,
the system is linked to a lightweight and powerful Li-Ion battery for
reliable starting.
Starter motor – located beneath the engine
Li-Ion battery – lightweight & reliable
