Continuing its legacy as the most versatile and competitive 250cc 2-stroke enduro machine on the market, the TE 250 is further enhanced for 2024 with the latest technical innovations. With almost every component refined, it's the introduction of Throttle Body Injection (TBI) that makes the most significant improvement to the class-leading rideability of the TE 250. Together with new, WP XACT Suspension front and rear, the TE 250 has never handled better thanks to the spring forks offering consistent damping. Overall, the new model delivers the best combination of impressive power and handling and is finished with a striking new look to underline it's continued development.

Delivering the best combination of power and weight, the TE 250 engine is a firm favorite with enduro riders. With the introduction of Throttle Body Injection (TBI) for 2024, the engine delivers improved torque while maintaining its high-revving two-stroke character. Designed to be more compact to reduce overall weight, a total saving of over 2.6 lb (1.2 kg) when compared to the previous generation underlines the ongoing development of this popular machine. Additionally, the shaft arrangements inside the TE 250 engine are precisely positioned for greater mass centralization while a counter balancer shaft reduces vibration.
With the introduction of Throttle Body Injection (TBI) on the TE 250, the 66.4 mm bore cylinder now features an innovative electronic exhaust control system that manages the opening of the lateral exhaust ports after the main exhaust port opens for maximum power delivery. Together with a machined finish on the upper contour of the exhaust port ensuring accurate port timing, unrivalled engine performance is assured.
State of the art chassis
The proven chromium molybdenum steel frame is refined for 2024. A new shock mounting, which is no longer connected to the main tube, significantly improves the anti-squat behavior of the chassis. With optimized wall thickness in high-stress areas improving reliability, the frame continues to offer advanced geometries and flex characteristics aimed at providing unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption, and straight-line stability. The frame is complete with a premium metallic blue powder coating with redesigned standard frame protectors offering improved grip in all conditions. Additionally, the redesigned and robust skid plate offers exceptional frame and engine protection.
Made from 60% polyamide and 40% aluminum, the new subframe offers exceptional strength and durability at a low overall weight of just 3.9 lb (1.8 kg). The lower subframe spars and frame mounts are manufactured from cast aluminum for significantly improved reliability, with the upper section made from injection-molded polyamide to enable specific flex characteristics.
Each of Husqvarna Motorcycles' enduro machines is now equipped with WP XACT Closed Cartridge spring forks. Designed and developed for the rigours of enduro riding, the fork offers consistent performance thanks to the closed cartridge spring design which optimises oil flow and prevents it from foaming. The addition of a new hydrostop, effective in the last 68 mm of travel, is highly effective on heavy landings to maintain maximum forward momentum. Additionally, riders can alter the compression and rebound settings quickly and easily using the tool-free adjusters found at the top and bottom of each fork leg.
