Husqvarna has widened the Enduro range with the new TE 310. This machine has been created to meet the demands of a particular section of the market that wants a motorcycle that is mid way between a 250 and a 450 cc 4-stroke. As for the frame, the Husqvarna TE 310 has a completely renewed frame that is 1 Kg lighter than the 2008 models, is more rigid and offers the rider better feel and manageability.
The new Wave type brake discs have been specially designed to improve performance under extreme conditions and the engines also feature new plastic engine protectors on both sides.
The TE 310 has a new higher performance exhaust system and forged aluminium side stand. The suspension settings too have been modified to improve rider comfort. As for appearances, the new graphics have an immediate impact and serve to underline the aggressive character of the 2009 range with the overall look further enhanced by black anodised wheels.
The TE 310 also has a new more compact digital display that, though smaller, is perfectly readable and blends beautifully with the new headlamp unit that houses it.
As regards the engine, the TE 310 comes from the TE 250 but the bore has been increased to 83mm. (76 mm on the 250). Other changes have also been made: steel gear change linkage, steel fork drive shaft and new gear selector to ensure more accurate gear changes. Husqvarna chose to fit steel exhaust valves to ensure greater durability over time. The 2009 models now also have an oil circuit pressure relief valve to ensure improved performance including when starting from cold, a new more efficient oil filter and a new timing chain tensioner for improved reliability.
