2011 Husqvarna TE 449

For the 2011 TE 449, Husqvarna placed much innovative thought into the enduro's design, motor and chassis.
The first thing noticeable is the design, as Husky describes it: "slim, svelte and refined." The company owned by BMW improved the ergonomics and redesigned the bodywork, which also makes maintenance easier, such as accessing the air filter, rear shock and throttle body.
The TE 125 and SMS 4 are the new four stroke 125 cc motorcycles from Husqvarna, aimed at young fans of the brand: the TE 125 for newcomers to enduro, SMS 4 for a touch of supermotard and speed in urban traffic.Both inherit a look that is particularly aggressive and appealing, reflecting the style of the bikes used in races by the official Husqvarna team.
The crux of this concept is the union of the rear wheel swing arm pivot point and the gearbox output shaft sprocket. This solution, which Husqvarna calls CTS (Coaxial Traction System), eliminates the variation in the length of the chain during rear suspension movement, minimizing the effect of the final drive on the bikes handling.

Bore: 3.86"
Stroke: 2.35"
Displacement: 27.44 c.i.
Compression Ratio: 12.0:1
Fuel System: Electronic Fuel Injection
Throttle Body: Keihin D46
Start: Electric
The TE 449 is equipped with a cutting-edge 4 valve dual camshaft engine which has been significantly improved thanks to the experience gained by Husqvarna in its many years of offroad racing.
Fuel delivery is managed by an electronic injection system with a Keihin 46 mm diameter, double flap throttle body which provides progressive and predictable throttle response.
All components are top of the range - the bike even comes with two exhaust silencers: the Euro 3 compliant silencer fitted as standard and a steel Akrapovic Racing exhaust, developed in collaboration with the Slovenian company to maximize the potential of the engine, whilst minimizing the weight.
The single overhead camshaft (SOHC) 4-stroke, liquid-cooled 124.45 cc engine is the same for both versions, TE and SMS4. Cylinder bore and stroke length are 52 mm and 58.6 mm, with a compression ratio of 11.2:1.
Both versions have 6 gears, but with different final speed ratios for the two models, to optimize performance in all conditions - urban traffic or dirt track.
The 125 cc engine ensures reduced emissions and consumption and is rated EU3. It has a Keihin 29 mm carburettor and electric ignition.
The lubrication is wet sump with claw pump and cartridge filter.
Naturally, Husqvarna's long experience in Enduro racing has played an important part in the development of these new motorcycles. The challenges posed by the conception of geometry and by the general concept of the motorcycle itself were linked to the tough demands of riding in the most severe and extreme conditions. The result is a surprisingly effortless and smooth ride along with agility and outstanding steering stability.
The perimeter design chassis is made of high strength steel tubing. The geometry of the rear suspension is revolutionary, with a new linkage mounted on top of the alloy swing arm.
