2011 Husqvarna WR150 announced

All-new model based on WR125

Husqvarna is adding the all-new WR150 two-stroke to its 2011 model line-up, joining the previously announced 2011 TE630 and SMS630.

The 2011 Husqvarna WR150 is based on the WR125 enduro model which was updated for 2010. The WR150 will use a 144cc engine that Husqvarna says will offer more torque and response than the WR125. The WR150 Husqvarna redesigned the WR125’s chromoly trellis frame with stronger engine mounts and added reinforcement to support the larger engine. The riding geometry also gets a tweak.

Husqvarna has equipped the WR150 with 50mm Kayaba forks and a Sachs remote reservoir rear shock.

“The 2011 WR150 is an impressive package any way you measure it,” says Mark Brady, president of Husqvarna Motorcycles NA. “It makes for an ideal complement at the other end of the model line spectrum to its TE630 and SMS630 siblings.”

The 2011 Husqvarna WR150 will be priced at $6,499.
