As you may have noticed, Husqvarna added a significant letter to the end of the TX 300′s name and this letter means that its 293cc two-stroke engine is now fuel injected, a change that is new for 2020. Originally introduced in 2017 as the carbureted TX 300, this machine was intended to be just as capable on the track as it is on the trail, and to tackle off-road or motocross racing as easily as a casual weekend ride. Now, with the fuel-injected update it will improve the model’s fuel consumption and emissions for this day and age and continue to be a do-it-all cross-country dirt bike.
In Dirt Rider’s first impression review of the 2017 TX 300, test riders stated: “On the track it was called stable and in the tight trails it was called nimble, light, and thin. In corners, Dylan praised the bike for laying over and not wanting to pop up mid-turn. Tyler loved the stability while flat tracking around slick turns. Neither rider noticed much vibration, something the Husqvarna engineers worked to minimize.”
Competition for the TX 300i includes the TM CC 300 Fi, KTM 300 XC TPI, and Beta 300 RR.
One of the biggest announcements during Husqvarna’s 2020 motocross and cross-country model unveiling was when the TX 300 made the switch to fuel injection. As Dirt Rider reported, the TX 300i is similar to last year’s carbureted TX 300, but this one is fuel injected. “It features a newly developed cylinder along with a new heavy-duty header pipe that has a corrugated surface to increase strength for impact resistance and reduce noise levels,” Dirt Rider continued. The engine also features a redesigned Dell’Orto 39mm throttle body.
