Husqvarna's 2016 TE 300 was built with the serious off-road enthusiast in mind. 293cc of power, a 38-inch seat height, and a sticker price of $8,899 differentiate this Husqvarna in what has become a highly competitive segment of the motorcycle market. Built in Austria but ridden the world over, the TE 300 was designed to be taken straight off the showroom floor and ridden away from the truck and into the elements - a 2.9-gallon tank provides fuel for the journey. Of course, a wide variety of mods for the TE 300 are available through a number of aftermarket companies in order to help you fine-tune this Husqvarna to your exact liking, although some of these changes may render it a competition-only machine. See what we think of the TE 300 and similar machines.

Husqvarna has a strong brand history in the sport of off-road, dating back to the days when legends like Malcolm Smith and JN Roberts used to rip these machines through the desert. Today, bikes like the $8,899 2016 TE 300 continue that signature Husky legacy with a blend of great engine performance, predictable handling, and suspension that can be made to work really, really well with just a little fine-tuning. There are plenty of riders and racers out there who want KTM-like performance without swimming with the orange crowd; if this sounds like you, then a new Husqvarna is an excellent choice.

"Feel free to lug or rev the TE 300; the engine is super versatile and fun to ride."
