...and just when you thing your bike lust has been satisfied...



Probably scary to ask... but what's the MSRP on this thing?

Somewhat old-school design looks like - even Yamaha has switched to aluminum frames.

I wouldn't sell that WR250 too fast. I have a '00 WR250 and a '03 TE610E, love them both. Even though the '06 TE610E will be... lighter, slimmer, more powerful and better suspended than my '03 it is still a big bike. If you do some serious technical dirt riding, I doubt that the TE will replace the WR, if you want to ride it like a dual sport it will be awesome. Looks like you have Tim Gallagher's old WR250, I would think that bike is a keeper.

2006 Enduro/Dual-Sport: Husqvarna TE 610

In the Husqvarna Dual Sport range, the new TE 610 lines up like a big sister to the WRE 125. This new model has been designed to fill a gap in a particularly interesting sector of the motorcycling market – that of the 600 cc four-stroke, single cylinder, off-road machine. Based on the SM 610, the new Husqvarna TE 610 benefits from having many parts in common with other four-stroke, racing Enduro Husqvarnas. The new machine signals the return of the 67 times World Off-Road Champions to the Dual Purpose sector - meaning bikes that will take you anywhere.

With the new TE 610, Husqvarna intends to widen its range to include those less competition-minded riders who use their bikes every day and need more comfort and practicality but want to combine this with the thrill of owning a race bike. The Husqvarna TE 610 is perfect for those of you that want a bike with muscle but also class. It is without any doubt the best example of how a racing off-roader can be transformed into a road-going machine.

The new Husqvarna happily took up the challenge of racing and in the last “Rally di Sardegna” won the “Marathon” category for production bikes. The TE 610 combines a strong character with looks. Part of its brilliance comes from the frame that has been re-tuned to cope with daily road use but is still powered by one of the best engines in production today, especially in the low-medium rev band. The new version has had some highly significant modifications to the cylinder and head as well as now being fitted with a new carburetor.

The new Husqvarna TE 610 is a machine of many faces, with the highly specialized capabilities one expects from a Husqvarna, yet suited for a wide range of riding styles. With an innovative blend of racing technology and comfort-oriented design, it is the perfect solution for a rider who wants to own an Enduro / Dual Purpose bike that can also handle longer journeys. The TE 610 is uniquely beautiful, available in the traditional Husqvarna yellow and blue racing scheme.

The 12 litre tank has a locking fuel cap. The digital instrumentation—which displays the normal warning lights, turn indicators, high/low beam, speed, mileage, rpm, and time—also features a trip meter and displays service intervals. The handlebars and controls are very similar to those found on the TE 450/510 racing version. The frame was stiffened and strengthened using traditional steel tubing with less steering column area and by using a more compact single tube cradle. The swinging arm is the same as used on the 450/510 twin cam models and has a new Sachs shock absorber featuring twin brake adjustment for compression and rebound using a redesigned linkage with a new progression curve. The suspension and brakes are the same as those on the TE models, but with lighter, completely adjustable settings. The Marzocchi 45 mm inverted forks have adjustable compression and rebound damping. The rear suspension features a redesigned linkage with a new progression curve. The swinging arm is the same as used on the 450/510 racing models. The new Sachs shock absorber is fully adjustable for compression and rebound. Brakes are by Brembo. The front uses a floating 260 mm disc with new 4-piston calipers . The rear is fitted with a 220 mm disc. The TE 610 has been designed to allow passengers to ride in comfort, thanks to an improved seat and anti-slip passenger footpegs. Saddlebags are available, attaching to special clips fitted to the rear frame and fender.

The 610 engine offers many improvements over previous versions. The engine is significantly more powerful than the previous version thanks to new higher compression pistons and the fitting of a Keihin MX 41 carburetor. Power output at the flywheel has increased to about 39 KW (about 54 CV ) at 7,000 rpm. The 4 valve, single overhead cam and rocker arm system has variable valve springs and a new timing chain tensioner to reduce noise. A counter-balancer is used to offset the vibration normally associated with large single-cylinder motors. The engine has twin oil pumps. One pump supplies oil to the head and crankshaft, while the second pump services the crankcase and the gearbox.

Other design elements that were included specifically to improve performance include the single pipe exhaust system with integrated catalytic converter and a new cooling system featuring an electric fan, thermostat, and redesigned air box.

when/ever/if I wear out my Adventure ( for I have no intention of ever selling it) I'll get one of these. If I can get a bigger tank that is. 20 litres please. If the LC4 replacement is a 5 speed, I'll get the Husqvarna no matter what size tank it has.

Fletcher's Cycles here in Memphis is a great Husqvarna dealer, so I have no worries in the dealer support department. He's very impressed with the 250/450s he's seen. They've proven to be light, fast, and reliable.
