2012 Husqvarna TE630
The Husqvarna TE 630 is a new addition
to the Dual Purpose Husqvarna range and is launched
into a particularly interesting segment of the motorcycle
market; 600 cc single-cylinder four-stroke on/off-road
Based on the new SM 630, the Husqvarna
TE 630 benefits from having many parts in common with
the smaller capacity racing four stroke Enduro Husqvarna
models. The new machine sits in the range alongside
the proven WRE 125 and these two bikes are the only
models by the manufacturer who has won the title of
off-road champion 78 times, to sit neatly in the dual
purpose sector: bikes that will take you anywhere.
With the new TE 630, Husqvarna intends
to broaden the appeal of the 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
Combining the look and character of
a racing bike with performance perfect for daily use
on or off-road, the new TE 630 is perfect for those
riders who 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 roadgoing
The new Husqvarna TE happily took up
the challenge of racing and in the last Italian Championship
Motorally and Marathon Raid it just won in the "Marathon"
category for production bikes, the category Husqvarna
dominated also in 2009.
The superlative engine is highly tractable
even at low to medium revs thanks to its 600 cc capacity
achieved by increasing the bore from 98 mm to 100
mm. The DOHC head with a red painted rocker cover
like those on our racing bikes is inherited from the
Husqvarna competition 450/510 engine and this permits
a 20% increase in power over the earlier 576 cc version.
The TE 630 has an electronic fuel injection
system developed in collaboration with Mikuni. The
engine features a 45 mm throttle body with the fast
idle control on the handlebars and there is now a
300 Kpa Mitsubishi "twin jet" fuel injector
fitted to the throttle. The pressure regulator (3
Bar) regulates any return of excess fuel to the tank
and the MAQS (Modularised Air Quantity Sensor) consists
of air temperature, mapping and TPS (Throttle Position)
The Kokusan 360W three-phase ignition
flywheel is also new.
The water temperature sensor is on
the cylinder head: the injection system unit processes
the signal from the sensor and controls the operation
of the cooling fan on the right water radiator according
to engine temperature. The bike has a completely new
cooling system with a new impeller and water pump
The clutch is now controlled hydraulically
and the left engine case has been redesigned.
New components include a petrol tank
with a 40l/h pump and a capacity of 12 l; the non-return
fuel circuit has quick-fit connections for ease of
The exhaust system on the four-stroke
single cylinder engine has a "closed loop"
lambda probe and twin aluminium exhaust silencers.
The catalyser has been redesigned and optimised to
easily meet Euro 3 requirements. The silencers, which
also play an important role aesthetically, giving
the bike an aggressive look, are covered with stainless
steel guards in the catalyser and passenger foot peg
The suspension system consists of 45mm
Marzocchi forks with rebound damping adjustment mated
with a Sachs rear shock absorber.
The 2011 version of the TE 630 will
have Magura tapered handlebars with new steering head
clamps and no cross bar.
