Husqvarna announces FE Dual Sport lineup updates for 2022
Husqvarna Motorcycles has officially announced its FE dual-sport lineup, including changes coming for 2022. With their competition-grade chassis and best-in-class power-to-weight ratios, the Husqvarna FE 350 and FE 501 models are known for their cutting-edge all-around capability. peak terrain. Now the range of lightweight, road-legal 4-strokes get a host of upgrades for 2022 to make them even more capable of conquering all types of terrain.
Revisions to the damping and action of the WP XPLOR forks and XACT rear shock allow riders to get the most torque and power. The revised suspension works in conjunction with the chrome-molybdenum steel frame – designed to deliver precise flex and progressive bodywork – as well as the 2-piece carbon composite subframe to provide consistent damping, handling precision and unequaled driving comfort.
The new models will now feature a BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch system that provides light action, great progression and consistently reliable performance. The hydraulic system is also self-adjusting and virtually maintenance-free. In addition, the new BRAKTEC brakes offer powerful braking with exceptional sensitivity and modulation in conjunction with the GSK wave discs.
For those looking to start their off-road riding right from home, without towing their bike, the FE 350 and FE 501 dual-sport models make the most of the FE off-road platforms to deliver high performance in the dirt, while still being street legal. Continental TKC 80 tires allow everything to roll over a variety of terrains by delivering a proven blend of off-road and street performance.
In addition to technical updates, Husqvarna Motorcycles has also paid attention to aesthetics with new colors, trims and graphics, bringing additional flair to the Swedish-inspired design. A new seat cover blends in with the updated design without compromising rider comfort or control.
New for 2022
- New BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch system – perfect modulation and reliable performance in all conditions.
- New BRAKTEC brake system and high performance GSK discs – superior stopping power with exceptional sensitivity and modulation.
- Revised suspension settings to improve performance and rider feedback.
- Oil bypass in the outer fork tubes reduces friction for smooth, consistent shifting throughout the stroke and a revised cartridge seal provides additional damping performance.
- Revised damper valve seals with reduced hardness (Model Year 21 = 90 Shore / Model Year 22 = 70 Shore) provide improved feedback and consistent damping performance.
- New colors, trims and graphics with accents of rugged gray and electric yellow are a distinctive and stylish adornment to the Swedish-inspired design.
