Description

Husqvarna is one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers in the world. As a subsidiary of the Husqvarna armaments firm, the company began producing motorcycles in 1903 at Huskvarna, Sweden. Although they also produced road bikes, they were involved with racing from the early days and achieved much success and respect in the 1960s and 70s, when they became a major force in motocross and enduro competitions, winning 14 motocross World championships, 24 European enduro championships, and 11 Baja 1000 victories.

By 1977 the Husqvarna business had become part of Sweden’s giant Electrolux Group and 10 years later, in 1987, production ceased in Sweden, with the sale of the motorcycle division to the Cagiva MV Agusta Group - production being transferred to Varese, Italy.

In the mid-70s, the Husqvarna factory developed new power plants in two versions – a WR unit (Wide Ratio) for enduro/ offroad riding and a CR outfit (Close Ratio) for motocross. This 250WR is a 1983-year model, powered by a 245cc single cylinder, air-cooled 2-stroke. It has never been registered for road use.

Husqvarnas of this period are generally well-regarded for their build quality, strength and durability. This bike has had a relatively recent engine and suspension refresh and has undertaken just two events since. It appears stock in all respects except the fitment of an aftermarket silencer.

This classic twin-shock enduro bike from the 80’s is in a good, original condition and runs well. It is ready for further competition action.

The bike is currently located in Jersey and we can assist with shipping and importation processes if required. We can ship worldwide.
