Staying faithful to the steadfastness of two-stroke dirt bikes, Husqvarna has updated their WR250 and WR300 models for 2011.
Taking knowledge from their World Enduro motorcycle racing experience, the subsidiary of BMW has updated many technical features on the WR 250 and WR 300. The biggest change is the new Ducati Energia ignition, which allows smoother power delivery and improved performance.
A huge advantage for riders in warmer climates will be the new thermostat, which optimizes the working temperature of the engine. Both bikes also have revised rear suspension settings and an improved airbox.
Husqvarna didn’t skimp on appearance, updating the visible aspects of the two motorcycles. The updates include news graphics, new rear racing mudguard with an integrated LED tail light and a nee reinforced mount for the headlight/front number plate.
These changes give the same race-ready look of the endure models campaigned by World Enduro frontrunner Antoine Meo and match the looks of the rest of the 2011 Husqvarnas.
