MXA TWO-STROKE NEWS: HUSQVARNA’S TWO-STROKE PLANS FOR THE USA (150, 250 & 300)
The Husqvarna CR150 will have Marzochhi forks and Sachs rear suspension.
Husqvarna has plans to bring an all-new 2011 CR150 two-stroke into the USA later this year. The reed valve and power valve-equipped engine will be have a 144cc displacement (same as the KTM) thanks to a 58mm x 54.5mm bore and stroke, plus have a suggested retail price below $6000. The six-speed tranny will power a chromoly tube frame (elliptical tubing), Marzocchi 48mm forks and a Sachs shock. The brakes are by Brembo with a 260mm Braking front rotor and 240mm rear Braking rotor. The polished hubs are from Grimeca. The carb is a 38mm Mikuni TMX38. In light of the 1CR150, Husqvarna will not bring any CR125’s to the USA this year.
The WR250 and WR300 share the same components, but the 300 has a bigger piston.

The enduro-based WR250 and WR300 two-strokes share most of their components (HTS valves, Brembo 260mm front brakes, 38mm Mikuni TMX carbs, five-speed transmission), but differ in bore size. The 250 has a 66mm x 72mm bore and stroke, while the WR300 (actually 293.1cc) shares the same stroke, but uses a 72mm piston. The 250/300 uses 48mm Kayaba forks and a Sachs shock.
Husqvarna North America will have a new website up next week, but until then you can still use the international site at www.husqvarna-motorcycles.com
