2012 Husqvarna TXC 310 | Preview

2012 Husqvarna Motorcycle

Due to the popularity of the race-inspired, cross country TXC 250 and TXC 511, Husqvarna has released a brand new middleweight model in the lineup – the TXC 310.

The TXC310 is built upon the TE310 dual-sport platform, but is modified to be a purebred, off-road motorcycle. The TXC310 features a fuel-injected, bored and stroked version of the 250 motor, which offers more aggressive power characteristics than its quarter-liter sibling, and fills a “significant gap in the current range of off-road bikes.”

Husqvarna says: “For riders looking for robust power delivery that can run with the 450s, and still provide lightweight maneuvering of a 250, the all-new TXC310 is the ideal tool for the job.”

The TXC 310 features a black frame, silver rims, Kayaba suspension and a LeoVince Exhaust system.
