Husqvarna has today revealed details of its new range of enduro models for 2022. Rather as expected, given the prevailing global circumstances, there’s not a great deal of change from the 2021 models. Perhaps the most significant change being a new supplier for the brake and clutch (hydraulic) systems.
Here’s a quick look at what’s new:
BNG: Yes, new colours, trims and graphics with a subtle rehash of the white and grey colour scheme with yellow accents (and new seat cover)
CLUTCH ACTUATION: New BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch system
BRAKES: New BRAKTEC brake system and high-performance GSK discs
SUSPENSION: Revised suspension settings plus an oil bypass in the outer fork tubes to reduce friction and a revised cartridge joint for added damping performance. Revised shock valve seals with reduced hardness for improved feedback and consistent damping performance
TYRES: Michelin Enduro tyres
GEARING: for the TE250i only, lower 13:52 gearing for improved low-end response
Probably the biggest news there is the swap from Magura to Spanish brand BRAKTEC for the braking systems and clutch actuation. We may not be so familiar with BRAKTEC but they’re part of the J.Juan Group based in Barcelona with over a 50 year history in brake technology and with a fairly expansive portfolio of automotive clients including KTM, BMW, Triumph etc (annual turnover €55m), so they’re no lightweights.
The subtle changes to the WP XPLOR and XACT suspension units really is the only other significant performance change. Pretty looking bikes though!
