2012 Husqvarna TE 250
Wouldn't trade my bike for any otherBy (I am an Owner) on Dec 22, 2012
This is a really fun bike to ride, the low seat height and light weight make it the perfect choice for a smaller rider. Even though it is only a 250 it seems to have more power than other small bikes I have ridden. I did have to change rear sprocket for lower gearing making the bike better for the ... tight single track riding I enjoy. My top speed is about 55 mph. with this set up, but that is all I need to get down the road to the trails. I also had to switch to a softer rear suspension spring for my weight. The stock suspension would be good for a 180 lb. rider. With these modifications, I would have to say this is the ideal bike for me, a real high performance dirt bike I can legally ride on the road, plus the benefit of being able to touch the ground with both feet and easily pick it up after a fall. I did everything from 100+ mile dual sport rides, to enduro races, to riding with my kids on back yard trails and had a great time with my Husky TE250.
