An all-new engine ensures the TE 150 comfortably retains its position as the leading small-capacity enduro machine on the market. To make the TE 150 even easier to ride, almost every component has been refined to improve torque with the introduction of a Keihin throttle body delivering stronger power higher in the rev range when compared to the previous generation. Assembled with the latest technical innovations throughout, the TE 150 engine delivers the ultimate in 2-stroke engine performance.
The new cylinder features a 58 mm bore and with the introduction of Throttle Body injection (TBI), an innovative electronic exhaust control system manages the simultaneous opening of the lateral ports and main exhaust port for maximum power delivery. Together with a machined finish on the upper contour of the exhaust port, improved engine performance is instantly noticeable.
The TE 150 uses a newly developed 39 mm throttle body with dual injectors positioned to optimise flow for a more immediate throttle response and improved rideability. Idle is controlled by the throttle valve, with one low load injector and one top feed injector ensuring maximum performance. Additionally, a new throttle position sensor (TPS) offers improved cold starting with the throttle valve now pivoting on ball bearings for a smoother throttle action.
An electronic oil pump feeds vital 2-stroke oil into the engine. It is located just below the oil tank and feeds the oil via the throttle body, meaning the oil is only mixed with air at this stage. The pump is controlled by the EMS and delivers the optimal amount of oil according to the current RPM and engine load. The oil tank is connected to a filler hose which runs through the upper tube of the frame to a filler cap conveniently located for easy refills.
Designed to be low in weight without sacrificing strength or reliability, the new crankcases are made using a high-pressure die-cast production process to create a thin-wall design. To centralise engine mass, the shaft arrangements are precisely positioned to harness rotating masses at the ideal centre of gravity.
Tailored specifically for the TE 150 using an innovative 3D design process, the header pipe ensures unrestricted performance and offers improved ground clearance to reduce the risk of impact damage out on the trail. The muffler also features an aluminium mounting bracket and advanced internal construction for excellent noise damping and weight saving.
The proven chromium molybdenum steel frame is refined for MY24. A new shock mounting, which is no longer connected to the main tube, significantly improves the anti-squat behaviour of the chassis. With optimised wall thickness in high-stress areas improving reliability, the frame continues to offer advanced geometries and flex characteristics aimed at providing unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption, and straight-line stability. The frame is complete with a premium metallic blue powder coating with redesigned standard frame protectors offering improved grip in all conditions. Additionally, the redesigned and robust skid plate offers exceptional frame and engine protection.
Made from 60% polyamide and 40% aluminium, the new subframe offers exceptional strength and durability at a low overall weight of just 1.8 kg. The lower subframe spars and frame mounts are manufactured from cast aluminium for significantly improved reliability, with the upper section made from injection-molded polyamide to enable specific flex characteristics.
The new hollow die-cast aluminium swingarm is manufactured from a single piece of aluminium using an improved casting process for optimal stiffness and a 190 g weight reduction. In order to optimise and match the flex characteristics of the new frame, a new 22 mm rear axle is fitted. Additionally, the chain guard and chain slider have been completely redesigned for improved durability with the chain guard made with a rounder profile to prevent catching on external objects.
Adorned with clean, Swedish-inspired graphics, the bodywork is refined with the ergonomics allowing riders to perform at their best for extended periods of time. Adapted after countless hours of testing, the contact points and surfaces in the rider triangle have been repositioned for MY24 to further improve comfort on the motorcycle. A flatter seat profile offers unrestricted movement with a new, high grip cover ensuring riders stay firmly in place under hard acceleration. Above the side panels, recessed pockets allow for the machine to be lifted and moved, which is particularly beneficial for those competing in extreme enduro events.
A new and transparent 8.5 litre fuel tank fits neatly within the ergonomic bodywork. The fuel pump is new and features and integrated filter for improved supply, with the fuel line positioned to be less exposed and susceptible to any potential damage.
Manufactured from high-strength aluminium, the radiators are designed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to channel air in the most effective way. A large centre tube channels coolant through the frame to reduce pressure at this point in the system for a more consistent flow while an internal thermostat further enhances reliability. A new design radiator cap with a bayonet closure ensures a secure fit.
WP XACT FRONT FORKS
Each of Husqvarna Motorcycles’ enduro machines is now equipped with WP XACT Closed Cartridge spring forks. Designed and developed for the rigours of enduro riding, the fork offers consistent performance thanks to the closed cartridge spring design which optimises oil flow and prevents it from foaming. The addition of a new hydrostop, effective in the last 68 mm of travel, is highly effective on heavy landings to maintain maximum forward momentum. Additionally, riders can alter the compression and rebound settings quickly and easily using the tool-free adjusters found at the top and bottom of each fork leg.
WP XACT REAR SHOCK
The all-new WP XACT rear shock is 100 g lighter and 15 mm shorter than its predecessor, yet the travel remains unchanged at 300 mm. With rebound and both high and low speed compression adjustable by hand, setting changes can be achieved quickly and easily without tools. Complete with a CFD optimised shock piston, low friction SKF seals, and a revised linkage system, consistent damping, comfort, and traction is guaranteed.
The highest level of performance is guaranteed with the latest BRAKTEC braking systems which are specifically designed for enduro riding. New callipers, new brake pads, new levers, and new brake lines together with the GSK wave discs (260 mm disc front and 220 mm rear) result in a sensitive and progressive feel ensuring complete control in all conditions.
The high-quality BRAKTEC clutch system guarantees even wear, reliability, and near maintenance-free operation. In addition, the lever design is updated providing a comfortable feeling in every condition. Play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time.
WHEELS AND TIRES
Black high-strength alloy rims by D.I.D are coupled to CNC machined hubs using lightweight spokes and silver anodised aluminium nipples. Fitted to the wheels are Michelin Enduro tyres which offer superior grip on a wide variety of terrain.
The black-anodized, CNC-machined triple clamps offer premium quality as standard on all Husqvarna enduro models. They have a carefully calculated 22 mm offset and are expertly crafted using superior techniques and materials for the highest levels of quality and reliability. The redesigned handlebar clamp has a larger contact surface with the ProTaper bars for reduced twisting in the event of a crash, and offers two mounting options for customisable ergonomics.
The new LED Headlight provides a brighter light output of approximately 300% for much-improved visibility at night and is particularly effective when riding through dense woodland. A new mounting design sees the LED lighting unit installed into the headlight mask using a quick-release system, which allows it to be replaced quickly and easily if damaged.
By using the Map Select Switch, the engine characteristics can be tailored to modify the power delivery according to rider preference and conditions. It has two settings that can be engaged while riding – Map 1, for predictable, linear power, and Map 2, for added throttle response and exhilarating power output.
Using state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics, the new footrests are slightly larger to improve control. Additionally, the mounting position for the footrests on the new frame brings them inwards, which makes them less susceptible to catching on the ground through deep ruts.
All TE models come standard with an electric starter. The system uses a compact and lightweight Li-Ion battery, which is 1 kg lighter than a conventional battery. With several years of experience in developing and perfecting electric starting, the proven reliability of the Husqvarna enduro range is second to none and ensures quick and easy starting at all times. Additionally, the wiring harness and electrical components are safely located below the seat for easy accessibility.
