2012 NEW MOTOCROSS BIKE BUYERS GUIDE: THE 2012 HUSABERG TE125, TE250 & TE300 TWO-STROKES
2012 Husaberg TE125.
For 2012 Husaberg will be 100 percent enduro (which means that they have dropped their Supermoto bikes). Husaberg will also open up access to the brand with the addition of a new model, the Husaberg TE125.
TE125 engine…with special Husaberg clutch cover.
Last year Husaberg introduced the TE250 and TE300 two-strokes and, in an attempt, to attract even more two-stroke fans, Husaberg new TE125 features closed-cartridge forks, machined triple clamps, translucent 11-liter tank and KTM 125XC engine.
The look of the 2012 Husabergs has been refreshed, not only by new graphics, but also by very useful changes, like the translucent fuel tanks, yellow frames, stock handguards and frame protectors. The rear suspension on the three Husaberg two-strokes is a no-link, PDS system.
2012 Husaberg TE300 with electric start as standard equipment.
The big-bore, electric-start, two-stroke TE250 and TE300 models receive a new Moto Tassinari reed valve block for better throttle response and the TE300 also features a new cylinder for increased bottom-end power. The standard on-the-fly ignition switch is replaced in 2012 by a new, smaller version so far only available from Husaberg’s accessory division.
Two things of note: (1) The 2012 Husaberg two-strokes will not be sold in the USA. (2) The 2012 Husaberg two-strokes are made by KTM…to the point of being PDS-equipped KTM’s with yellow frames and Husaberg plastic.
