First look at the Husqvarna Dual Sport 2022 lineup (5 quick facts)


[ad_1]

The Husqvarna Dual Sport 2022 range is simple: you have the choice between the FE 501 and FE 350. The main difference is in the powertrains. The 501s have a four-valve SOHC engine, while the 350s have a four-valve DOHC top end. Plus, the 350s carry about a quarter less fuel than the 501s and weigh four pounds more at the curb.

Both are getting updates for 22, so let’s take a first look at the Husqvarna 2022 dual sport lineup.

  1. The WP Xact suspension gets a massage for 2022. There is a new cartridge seal in the fork tubes to provide a bit more damping. The shock gets softer seals for the shock valves to make the damping more consistent while giving the rider a better feel of the rear. With these suspension mods, the damping of the WP suspension components has been adjusted to match the new parts.
  1. White is the dominant color in the Husqvarna 2022 dual sport range. There are Rugged Gray graphics, which are complemented by Eclectic Yellow inflections.
  1. We do not yet have an arrival date for the two Husqvarna 2022 bisport motorcycles. However, the prices are in the combined datasheet.
