The Paul Feeney Group has announced the arrival of Husqvarna’s 2011 model CR 150 motocross model.
Husqvarna has always had a strong championship presence in the small two-stroke 125cc enduro and motocross sector since their entry to the market in 1988.
The 2011 version of the CR 150 have been further updated with technical modifications deriving from Husqvarna’s experience in the European Motocross Championship.
In order to keep smaller displacement two‐strokes competitive with their four‐stroke counterparts, many racing organisations allow former 125cc class bikes to go up to 144cc.
The Husqvarna CR 150 takes full advantage of the allowance, offering a potent power plant and top quality suspension components that make this two‐stroke a top motcross contender.
The biggest technical modifications made to the CR 150 involved the mechanical features, with a new chassis, modified particularly under the cradle, now more streamlined and allowing better ground clearance than the previous version.
The engine mountings are also different, reinforced and with new cylinder head fittings. The air filter housing is also new design making it more water resistant.
Engine-wise, the exhaust has a new muffler and a clutch housing the same as that on the TC/TE250 models, more robust and efficient.
The livery has been redesigned to follow the new design for all Husqvarna two and four stroke models, with In Mould Graphics, integrated to the plastic.
Pricing for the CR 150 has been announced at $8995.00.
