2013 Husqvarna WR Review


Fun is the name of the game for the 2013 Husqvarna WR, and they hit the nail on the head. Husqvarna had record a record-breaking year in both the US and other countries across the globe. Because of this, the BMW-owned brand is continuing tradition with its 2013 line of Husqvarna WR motorcycles, including the WR, WR250, and WR300. With such outstanding previous success, there was little need for changes, and that’s reflected in the overall similarity to last year’s models. The WR again comes with a 144cc top-end kit that offers more power and quick, smooth throttle response.

Some of the changes shared among all of the Husqvarna models, including the 2013 Husqvarna WR line, boast black Domino grips, a redesigned handlebar pad, updated graphics, and improved sticker quality. Continued from 2012, the chromoly single-tube frame cradle utilizes rounded?rectangle elliptical tubing for maximum strength and durability. This lightweight machine will take you up and over the hills on your backcountry adventures. The aggressive nature of these two-stroke engines in the 2013 WRs assures you that no terrain will be too much to handle, whether it’s a leisurely cruise on some dirt trails, or a wild ride through desert dunes.

  • IPD (in-mold plastic design) shroud graphics updated with sleek new look
