2010 Husqvarna Motorcycles
New Husqvarna Model Information
In the Husqvarna Dual Sport range,
the new TE 630 lines up like a big sister to the WRE
125 learner legal trail bike.
This new model has been designed to
fill a gap in a particularly interesting sector of
the motorcycling market – that of the 600cc
four-stroke, single cylinder, off-road machine.
Based on the new SMS630, the Husqvarna
TE 630 benefits from having many parts in common with
other four stroke racing Enduro Husqvarna models.
With the TE 630, Husqvarna intends
to widen its range to include Enduro enthusiasts 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 630 is perfect for
those of you that want a bike with muscle but also
class. It is without doubt the best example of how
a racing off-roader can be transformed into a road-going
The Husqvarna TE610 (predecessor to
the new 630) happily took up the challenge of racing
and in the last Italian Championship Motorally and
narrowly missed winning the Marathon class category
for production bikes that it had claimed in 2008.
The TE 630 combines strong looks and
character with a frame built for daily off-road use
thanks also to the superlative engine that is highly
tractable even at low to medium revs.
The main news item on the new TE 630
is the engine that has been bored out from 98 to 100
mm to give a capacity of 600cc The head now has a
red rocker box like the race machines and houses DOHC
valve gear from the racing 450/510 that provides 20%
more power than the previous 570cc version.
The TE 630 is fitted with electronic
injection system that was developed in collaboration
with Mikuni and features a 45 mm throttle body with
the starter command on the handlebars. The exhaust
system on the four-stroke single cylinder engine has
a “closed loop” lambda probe and the twin
aluminium silencers feature
catalysers that have been redesigned and optimised
to meet Euro 3 requirements.
The silencers that play an important
part in the overall aggressive look of the bike have
been covered with stainless steel protection around
the catalyser area and the passenger footpegs.
The machine can be fitted with a main
stand that is available as an optional extra. The
suspension consists of a Sachs rear shock paired with
Marzocchi forks that now have the black outer legs,
similar to those fitted on the 450/510 models.
The 2010 version of the TE 630 will
have Tommaselli tapered handlebars with new steering
head clamps and no cross bar.
The SMS630 first took shape as project
610 but the frame and engine have been totally redesigned.
The new completely designed bodywork gives an elegant,
streamlined yet aggressive look. The saddle, tanks,
side panels and front and rear mudguards are all newly
designed. The saddle especially now has double depth
padding to provide the rider and passenger with more
comfortable seating for medium and long journeys.
Passengers will be able to make use
of two specially designed handles on the saddle frame
that will let allow them to feel both safer and more
comfortable. The headlight unit is also new and houses
a more powerful headlight. This unit is built into
the fairing that goes perfectly with the “racing”
mudguard. The frame and
rear swing arm are now black to contrast with the
two new colour schemes available – All white
and the ‘racing’ variant in black/white.
The rear mudguard is also new with
an LED rear light and a built-in number plate holder.
The main news item on the new SM 630 is the engine
that has been bored out from 98 to 100 mm to give
a capacity of 600cc The head now has a red rocker
box like the race machines and houses DOHC valve gear
from the racing 450/510 that provides 20% more power
than the previous 570cc version.
The SMS630 is fitted with Mikuni fuel
injection, Brembo brakes and Tommaselli ‘fat
A range of optional parts will be available
in February (planned launch date of TE & SMS630)
which allows circuit riders to extract even more power
out of the twin cam motor. Initial tests suggest an
extra 8bhp can be realised simply by fitting the race
exhaust and airbox.
