Husqvarna unveil fuel-injected two-stroke range
And whoever said that two-strokes were dead?
The bikes are both completely new for this year and like the KTM machines, give the world of two-stroke machinery a new lease of life, allowing the technology to live on through ever tightening emissions regulations.
- TT 2017: Hutchinson leads the way as practice begins
- JvB moto's righteous R NineT
- TT: Honda confirm electronics switch
- MCN Fleet: A simple (and cheap) gearbox fix for the 2002 Fireblade
- First ride incoming: BMW R nineT Urban G/S
The bikes feature a pair of injectors at the transfer ports that Husqvarna say “delivers the perfect amount of fuel into the engine at all times, across all conditions.”
The fuel injection system also reduces the fuel consumption in the two-stroke machinery and provides a much more efficient combustion process.
With fuel injection also comes more customisable motorcycles, with the new Engine Management System eliminating the need for carb jetting changes and the customisable engine map allowing the rider to change the power characteristics to suit the conditions.
The strokers join a heavily updated TE and FE range of motorcycles too. With the TX 125, FE 250, 350, 450 and 501 motorcycles all benefitting from improvements with the 2018 models.
WP Performance System forks are used across the entire Enduro range and features new outer tubes that have improved flex characteristics and offer reduced friction and a stiffer setting.
The front and rear brakes used across the range are also new and come from Magura, with GSK discs.
The bikes will be available from July, contact your nearest Husqvarna dealership for more information.
