Husqvarna has announced a new cross-country motorcycle for its 2012 model year lineup, with the TXC310 taking its place between the existing TXC250 and TXC511 in the company’s dirt bike offerings.
The TXC310 features an all-new 302cc engine, which features direct fuel injection. The motor is a bored and stroked version of the TXC250’s, according to Cycle News. The bike looks primed for racing with a Leo Vince exhaust system and a Kayaba suspension that features a 48mm cartridge fork.
Don’t think Husky has forgotten about the 250 or 511 models, however. These bikes are receiving significant upgrades as well for the new season, as both have the Leo Vince exhaust and Kayaba suspension as well. Both models also have adjustments to their fuel injection systems. The 511 also comes with new shocks and a green-sticker label in California. The 250 and 310 will both be red-sticker vehicles.
In addition, Husqvarna is also offering the WR two-stroke off-roaders. The 250 and 300 are back for this year, while the 125 will make its return to the U.S. lineup.
All of this is obviously great news for Husqvarna fans who love their dirt bikes. No timetable for release has been set yet, but keep your eyes peeled for them soon.
