Even if you have no interest in partying like a rock star, you can ride an enduro motorcycle like one, thanks to the 2022 Husqvarna TE 300i Rockstar Edition. Husky takes the standard fuel-injected two-stroke and turns up the volume for the Rockstar Edition. Here’s what you get:
Galfer discs are now used for braking, front and rear. The Rockstar Edition also gets a front disc guard.
Brembo gets the nods for hydraulics on the TE 300i Rockstar Edition. In addition to Brembo calipers grasping the Galfer discs, Brembo master cylinders are employed for braking and clutching. Husqvarna Factory Racing endorses the hydraulic system.
There’s a blue Supersprox rear sprocket, plus a matching chain guide to keep power flowing to the rear wheel.
Michelin Enduro Medium tires are shod on D.I.D DirtStar rims. Last year’s Dunlops are out.
The Rockstar Edition’s CNC-machines triple clamps are blue. That sets them apart from the black powdercoated frame.
Your posterior will like the black high-grip seat cover, which is ribbed for your pleasure, while your hands will find favor with the grey soft ODI grips.
The Twin Air air filter is top-of-the-line, and you can get to it without tools.
The WP suspension and carbon-fiber/polyamide rear subframe are the same as you’ll find on the standard TE 300i.

Our first segment introduces you to the new Arch 1s. This latest, slightly more sporting American V-twin, adds to the original KRGT1 coming from the boutique manufacturer based in Hawthorne, Southern California. Senior Editor Nic de Sena rode through Malibu with Gard Hollinger, who co-founded Arch Motorcycle with his friend, Keanu Reeves. The 1s is a unique ride for sure, and Nic explains what makes the bike really stand out.
For the entertaining story behind Arch Motorcycle from Gard Hollinger himself, you must listen to his podcast episode on Motos & Friends HERE
The guest segment of Motos and Friends is brought to you by the faster and most technologically advanced, 2023 Suzuki Hayabusa—visit your local dealer or suzukicycles.com to learn more.
In our second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with multiple Emmy award-winning writer, Producer, Director, and actor, Thom Beers. the former Chairman & CEO of Fremantle Media North America, responsible for American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Thom’s fertile imagination led to most of the really big reality TV shows such as ‘Deadliest Catch’ (now in its 17th season!), and many others. Of course for us in the motorcycle world, you’ll be interested to hear the genesis and story of how he started the first real fabrication reality show ‘Monster Garage’, that showcased Jesse James, and then how that led to ‘Biker Build Off’ and the ‘Zombie Choppers’ movie.
You’d imagine that most of Thom’s time is spent sitting behind a desk and on his phone. Not so. His intense stories of capturing much of the content for these shows make for some hair-raising listening.
