The Swedish manufacturer Husqvarna began producing motorcycles as early as 1903. The company has a long and storied tradition of manufacturing highly regarded off-road motorcycles. At one point, their lightweight, two-stroke engine designs made competing British four-stroke models obsolete. While four-stroke designs have made a comeback since the late 1990s, Husqvarna still makes a two-stroke line, as represented by the WR Series. The 2010 Husqvarna WR Series includes the WR125, the WR250, and the WR300. The manufacturer intends these bikes for off-road use only.
