Husqvarna has released most of its 2019 off-road two-strokes. The models shown so far are the TE150, the TE250 and the TE300. While the 150 remains a carbureted model, the 250 and 300 are both fuel-injected with Transfer Port Injection and will not be available in carbureted configuration for 2019. The TX line, however, is yet to be announced, and it’s unlikely that the TX300 will be injected.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS – ENGINES
Engine management system (EMS)
All FE and the TE 250i/300i models feature electronic fuel injection. The EMS on the TE 250i/300i features an electronic control unit (ECU) that is responsible for a number of functions. Determining the ignition timing and amount of fuel and oil injected, the system also receives information from the throttle position sensor, ambient air and intake pressure sensors as well as crankcase pressure and water temperature sensors to adapt values for automatic temperature and altitude compensation. As for the 4-stroke FE machines. With the help of a gear sensor, power delivery is tailored for each gear.
2-stroke EMS → modern engine management
Innovative system eliminates the need for jetting changes
Gear sensor → specific power delivery for each gear
The TE 250i/300i models use a 39 mm throttle body that regulates the amount of air entering the engine via a butterfly. The system features dual throttle cables that are connected to the handlebar throttle assembly. A throttle position sensor (TPS) relays airflow data to the ECU, which in turn calculates the amount of oil and fuel delivered to the engine.
39 mm body for the TE 250i/300i → regulates air flow
Map switch & traction control
For the MY19 2-stroke models the switch allows for selection between the standard ignition timing and a slightly retarded timing, to be used in low traction conditions. The system functions by analyzing throttle input from the rider and the rate at which RPM increases in the engine. If the RPM increases too quickly, the ECU will register a loss of grip thus reducing the amount of power to the rear wheel for maximum traction.
Standard map switch → alter engine characteristics depending on conditions
2-strokes → option to select different ignition timings
TE 150 – FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Better bottom and torque due to specific cylinder finishing

TE 250i/ TE 300i – FEATURES AND BENEFITS
The big displacement 2-stroke engines on the TE 250i and TE 300i are the benchmark in unrivalled power in a lightweight construction. Both models feature a pioneering electronic fuel injection system. They feature precisely positioned shaft arrangements for optimal mass centralization, a counter balancer shaft reducing vibration, a twin-valve controlled power valve and 6-speed enduro gearbox. This comprises of a set of fuel injectors positioned at the transfer ports that deliver the ideal amount of fuel into the engine for every condition. This not only reduces fuel consumption and emissions but also delivers a clean and smoother power delivery across the range.
Both cylinders feature two inlet positions located on the transfer ports at the rear where a pair of fuel injectors are mounted. The injectors deliver the fuel downwards into the transfer port offering excellent atomization with the air travelling upward to the combustion chamber. This ensures a more efficient combustion resulting in reduced fuel consumption. A tube on the rear of the cylinders is connected to a sensor, which relays intake pressure data to the ECU. Both cylinders feature a twin valve controlled power valve system, which delivers smooth and controlled power throughout the RPM range. The bore on the TE 250i is 66.4mm, whereas on the TE 300i it is 72mm.
Dual fuel injectors → excellent atomization, reduced fuel consumption
Power valve → Smooth power delivery, customizable
The lightweight piston is perfectly matched to the cylinder transmitting minimal oscillating mass and ensuring high levels of reliability and performance.
Piston → fits perfectly to cylinder
The lightweight, die-cast casings on both engines are developed with the goal to improve mass centralization. They accommodate a shaft arrangement aimed at centralizing oscillating mass and improving ride-ability.
Die cast engine casings → mass centralization, improved handling
New engine covers → better wear resistance
Counter balancer shaft
The engine houses laterally mounted counter balancer shaft which significantly reduces vibration resulting in a smoother and more comfortable ride.
Counter balancer shaft → significantly reduces vibration
The crankshafts feature a 72mm stroke and are balanced in conjunction with the counter balancer shafts for minimum vibration. By incorporating a heavier ignition rotor, the crankshafts produce more inertia than the TC 250 motocross model for better control in the lower RPM range.
6-speed gearboxes on both models feature off-road specific ratios. Innovative shift levers reduce dirt build up guaranteeing easy operation in all conditions.
6-speed gearbox → off-road specific ratios
Gear lever → prevents dirt build up & blockage
The TE 250i and TE 300i feature a DDS (damped diaphragm steel) clutch. The clutch uses a single diaphragm spring instead of the more common coil spring design resulting in a much lighter clutch action. This design also incorporates a damping system that increases both traction and durability. Combined with the Magura hydraulic system the set-up is light and offers modular clutch feeling that is near maintenance free and adjustable.
DDS clutch → light action, increased traction & reliability
Magura hydraulic system → light & modular action, almost maintenance free
Both models are fitted with an electric starter located below the engines for optimum protection. The systems are linked to new generation lightweight and powerful Li-ion batteries for reliable starting.
Starter motor → located under the engine
New Li-Ion battery → lightweight & reliable
Oil tank & pump
The TE 250i/300i feature electronic oil pumps that feed 2-stroke oil into the engines to keep them lubricated. The pumps are located just below the oil tank feeding the oil via the throttle body. Oil is not mixed with the fuel, eliminating the need for pre-mixing as on traditional 2-stroke engines. The tank capacity is 0.7 l which lasts for an average of five full tanks of fuel before needing to be refilled. A low oil sensor illuminates a light visible to the rider when the oil needs to be refilled.
Oil pump & tank → convenient solution, eliminates pre-mix
