On the other side of the globe, the cold is starting to settle in, and a lot of people’s motorcycles will be hibernating in their garages. However, this didn’t stop the Swedish motorcycle maker, Husqvarna from releasing its latest special edition enduro machine. For 2021, Husqvarna introduces two Rockstar Edition enduro bikes to add to its lineup.
Just like its previous special editions, the 2021 TE 300i and FE 350 Rockstar edition get some performance competition-focused hardware upgrades on top of its Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory racing graphics and livery. Both the bikes now feature black, powder-coated frames, blue CNC-machined triple clamps, and blue chain guides. They also sport some ribbed black seat covers to keep you gripped on the saddle. The bikes also come with sport front disc protectors, blue Supersprox rear performance sprockets, and grey ODI grips. They roll on Michelin Enduro tires to make sure they grip even on loose mud and soil.
The Husqvarna TE 300i Rockstar edition is powered by a torquey yet manageable 300 cc two-stroke engine. Its fuel injection system allows you not to worry about your jetting adjustments effectively making your fuel/oil premixing a thing of the past. Meanwhile, the FE 350 Rockstar Edition splits the difference between a 250 and a 450 cc enduro machine, giving you the perfect balance of a nimble 250’s agility and a 450’s powertrain. Traction control now comes as standard to help you get out of those slippery situations commonly encountered in enduro dirt riding.
At the moment, the base price for the 2021 Husqvarna TE 300i starts at $10,899 in the U.S.A, or roughly around P530,000. On the other hand, Husqvarna is yet to announce the official pricing of the 2021 FE 350 Rockstar Edition. Husqvarna is officially distributed by Adventure Cycle Philippines Inc. (ACPI) in the country and they are scheduled to launch the brand by next month.
