Husqvarna TX 300 Features
The new generation TX 300 engine is at the pinnacle of 2-stroke performance and weighs just 52.6 lb. Complete with the latest technical innovations for 2023, the TX 300 receives significant updates with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) and electronic exhaust control reducing running costs, removing the need for jetting changes, and improving reliability. The result is a tailormade power delivery for each gear and every situation. The known E-Start adds to the simplicity of this popular model and guarantees fast starting in all conditions.
The cylinder features a 72 mm bore and an electronic exhaust control system. This highly innovative technology manages the opening of the lateral exhaust ports before the main exhaust ports open to deliver strong, controllable power. The upper contour of the exhaust port features a machined finish for improved port timing and unrivalled performance.
High-pressure die cast production processes allow for the crankcases to be manufactured with a thinner wall thickness to keep the overall weight to a minimum and to position the shaft arrangements in the perfect position for optimized mass centralization. This clever design aids the overall balance and agility of the TX 300 while redesigned, symmetrical engine mounts further improve flex characteristics.
The proven chromium molybdenum steel frame is refined for 2023 to reposition rotational masses inside the engine which together with a new shock mounting position, significantly improves anti-squat behaviour of the chassis. With optimised wall thickness in high-stress areas improving reliability, the frame continues to offer advanced geometries and flex characteristics aimed at providing unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption, and exceptional straight-line stability.
Polyamide-Reenforced Aluminum Subframe
Made from 60% polyamide and 40% aluminium, the new two-piece subframe for 2023 ensures exceptional strength and durability at an overall weight of just 3.9 lb. The lower subframe spars and frame mounts are manufactured from cast aluminium for significantly improved reliability. The upper section of the subframe is made from injection-moulded polyamide to enable specific flex characteristics and ensure a lightweight construction.
Matching the new frame design and suspension set-up, the CNC-machined triple clamps provide precisely calculated geometry for increased stability. Customised handlebar flex can be achieved by the new handlebar clamp which offers two mounting options – rubber-damped for less vibration or fixed for enhanced front-end feedback. The upper triple clamp is stiffer to ensure a smoother fork action and plays a vital role in the perfect alignment of the front wheel for superior handling.
Clean, Swedish-inspired design and ergonomics are tailored to deliver exceptional comfort and control, enabling riders to perform at their best for extended periods of time. Adapted after countless hours of testing, the contact points have been repositioned for 2023 and together with a flatter seat profile, riders can move freely on the motorcycle for total control at all times.
Easy access to the TWIN AIR filter is possible without tools, for quicker cleaning and easier maintenance. Precision inlet ducts maximise airflow and offer increased levels of filter protection.
The high-performance Brembo hydraulic clutch system guarantees even wear, near maintenance-free operation and perfect modulation in every condition. Meaning that play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point, and function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time. Countless hours of race-focused testing have proven the high-quality, Italian-made Brembo hydraulic systems’ exceptional reliability.
Wheels and Tires
CNC-machined hubs and high-strength alloy rims by D.I.D are finished in striking black. They feature laser engraved logos and are fitted with a DUNLOP GEOMAX MX33 tyre on the front and DUNLOP GEOMAX AT81 tyre on the rear which ensure progressive cornering and superior traction on a variety of terrain.
Manufactured from high-strength aluminum, the radiators are designed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to channel air in the most effective way. A large center tube channels coolant through the frame to reduce pressure at this point in the system for a more consistent flow while a new internal thermostat further enhances reliability.
A new 2.24 gallon fuel tank integrates neatly into the revised bodywork. Due to the new fuel pump design and position, the tank is emptied further for increased running times. For improved safety, the external fuel line is specifically routed to make it less exposed and susceptible to damage.
The introduction of Electronic Fuel Injection on the TX 300 brings many benefits. The ECU from Vitesco constantly analyses the running condition of the engine and delivers the perfect air/fuel ratio at all times through the state-of-the-art 39 mm Keihin throttle body. The exciting addition of EFI allowed our engineers to develop two different engine maps, which can easily be selected via the handlebar-mounted switch for a personalized riding experience.
To ensure fast starting in all conditions, the TX 300 features a highly convenient electric start. The reliable system removes the need for a kickstart completely. With the 12.8V 2 Ah Lithium-Ion battery located under the seat and close to the center of gravity, the handling is uncompromised. The engine is easily started and stopped via the same handlebar-mounted switch for improved ease of use.
By using the Map Select Switch, the engine characteristics can be tailored to modify the power delivery according to rider preference, conditions, and terrain. It has two settings that can be safely toggled between while riding, by simply pressing a button on the handlebar-mounted map switch. Map 1 is the standard option, that delivers linear, predictable power, while map 2 is aggressive with improved throttle response and sharper, explosive power output.
