2020 Husqvarna TE 150i
The Husqvarna TE 150i is one of a few fuel-injected two-strokes within the 150cc realm that caters to the trailblazer.
The Husqvarna TE 150i is a two-stroke dirt bike designed for the trails and at 219 pounds (dry, claimed weight) is the lightest model in the range, Husky says. Its light weight and nimbleness are useful for slaloming in between trees while the WP Xplor and WP Xact front and rear suspension deliver consistent damping over terrain thanks to refining updates made for the 2020 MY. Other features include Magura brakes, toggleable mapping options, an electric starter, and, the biggest change for 2020, electronic fuel injection. This is one trick enduro bike.
2020 Husqvarna TE 150i Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition
When Dirt Rider took the 2019 TE 150 out on the trails in New York, the test rider reported that the TE cut through trails and obstacles with ease and that its “impressive power-to-weight ratio allow a rider to be aggressive with an easily managed powerband.”
Competition for this fuel-injected two-stroke includes the TM EN 144 Fi and KTM 150 XC-W TPI. For those not as concerned with displacement as they are with having a unique brand of off-road bike, you can look toward the Sherco 125 SE Racing model or Beta 125 RR as the TE’s other competition.
Husqvarna TE 150i Updates For 2020
The 2020 TE 150i (and the whole Husqvarna Enduro line) have undergone major updates to the chassis, suspension, and bodywork. More specifically, this includes a more rigid frame (Husky specifies for more longitudinal and torsional rigidity), a claimed 250-gram-lighter carbon fiber subframe, new aluminum cylinder head mountings, and updated suspension that offers “simple adjustment, more consistent damping, and better resistance to bottoming,” Husky says. The TE 150i also now shares the same two-stroke electronic fuel-injection tech as the TE 250i and TE 300i. Across the MY20 range, the models also see a claimed 0.4-inch drop in seat height. New bodywork and graphics are just the cherry on top.
