2012 Husqvarna TE 310 | Quick Look

2012 Husqvarna Motorcycle

While the 310 engine size (actually 302.4cc) may seem a bit strange immediately, this is the powerplant World Enduro Champion Antoine Meo uses in the FIM’s E2 enduro class, which allows engines up to 450cc.

It’s all about the balance of power, and a smaller engine is less fatiguing than a large motor.

While riders who take their dual sport bikes on the freeways may prefer the Husqvarna TE449 or TE511, the TE310-which enjoys an updated frame for ’12-it is an appealing size for attacking single-track and those who find the TE250 is not powerful enough for their needs.
