2015 Husqvarna FE250 Review

2015 Husqvarna FE250 on Totalmotorcycle.com

Surgically precise agility….

The sharp-handling, lightweight chassis ensures that the FE 250’s highly-tuned 250cc 4-stroke engine expresses its full potential. The double-overhead-cam engine’s power is precisely delivered at the rider’s request thanks to the most advanced electronic fuel injection system and a slick 6-speed gearbox with hydraulic clutch. And when it comes to starting and stopping, the standard electric starter will keep the FE 250 going even in the toughest conditions, while the Brembo brakes will bring it to a standstill with confidence.

 

2015 Husqvarna FE250 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


ENGINE

The compact 250cc power plant produces class-leading power and torque while offering superior tractability. The FE 250’s advanced DOHC cylinder head features DLC coated followers and flow optimised ports, large 32.5mm intake valves that weigh only 19.6g each, while the 26.5mm exhaust valves weigh 18g. Engine performance is tuned for Enduro use thanks to specific cams that boost midrange power and deliver superior torque. The large 78mm bore cylinder features a König forged bridged-box-type piston (that weighs only 200g) and a short stroke to enhance revving and house large valves for better fuel flow. The compression ratio is 12.8:1.


CRANK SHAFT

The performance demands of highly tuned engines require the most advanced crankshaft technology to maintain high performance characteristics throughout the life of the engines. The crankshaft and con rod on the 4-stroke Enduro engines are produced by industry leader Pankl to ensure durability and long service intervals (135 hours before changing con rod, con rod bearing and crank pin). The plain big end bearing and the force-fitted bearing shells ensure that high performance and durability can be combined in a single engine.


ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (EMS)

The 4-stroke engines feature a Keihin electronic fuel injection and 42mm throttle body for accurate throttle response and smooth engine performance that is ideal for Enduro-style riding. Optional Husky Power accessories allow riders to select maps via an optional switch and download engine data with a laptop via a Setting Tool.


STARTER

The entire 4-stroke Enduro range features a reliable electric starter and offer the possibility to retro-fit a kick-starter. Easy starting in any situation.


FRAME

Enduro riding requires maximum feedback from the bike in rough terrain, on rocks and in slippery conditions. Precisely engineered flex in the frame can greatly improve rider confidence, allowing for increased speed and improved times. To achieve these goals, the engineers designed the lightweight chromium molybdenum frame with precise longitudinal flex that helps absorb impacts from the rear wheel, working together with the suspension and giving the rider greater feedback. The torsional rigidity has been calibrated to maximise sharp handling, with lightning fast turn-in and exceptional stability even on the roughest special tests.


SUBFRAME

The lightweight, three-piece polyamide rear subframe has been reinforced with an additional screw on the airbox side that improves the fitment between the left subframe arm and the airbox. The improved seal guarantees better performance and durability. The polyamide subframe is more flexible than a traditional aluminium rear subframe. Combined with the longitudinal flex of the frame and the rear linkage system, this gives riders a more comfortable and confidence-inspiring feeling on the bike, allowing them to push the limits in every condition and on any terrain. The inherent characteristics of the composite subframe allow the engineers to have unlimited opportunities of integrating features such as the airbox, electronics and rear grab handle.


SWINGARM

The one-piece construction of the swingarm guarantees consistent performance by eliminating welding points. The engineers designed specific flex characteristics that optimise traction while feeding precise information to the rider, instilling confidence and improving overall performance. Strong but light, the beautifully styled aluminium cast swingarm provides perfect stability and safety.


WHEELS AND BRAKES

Black DID rims and CNC machined hubs mated to silver anodised nipples add an aggressive and modern look to the newly designed Husqvarna Enduro range. World Championship level performance is guaranteed by Michelin Enduro Competition tyres. The wheels are kept firmly under control thanks to maximum feeling in extreme situations combined with amazing stopping power of the latest generation of Brembo brakes. Ergonomically perfect controls allow the rider to accurately gauge braking power to the 260mm and 220mm wave discs at the front and rear respectively.


FRONT SUSPENSION

The WP 4CS closed cartridge 48mm front fork represents the pinnacle of suspension technology. The 4 chamber system unites the performance of a closed cartridge fork with the simplicity of an open cartridge fork and also has the benefit of additional weight reduction of the overall system. It provides a decisive advantage in terms of responsiveness constant damping precision and handling, while maintaining plushness and rider comfort. Matched with CNC machined black triple clamps, the 4CS forks ensure exceptional handling and feel of the front end. Riders of all performance levels can adapt the setup of the fork for different terrain and conditions by changing clicker settings with a simple twist of a dial, obtaining the best performance in terms of rebound and compression damping settings.


REAR SUSPENSION

WP designed the high performance DCC (Dual Compression Control) rear shock with the aim of guaranteeing excellent damping characteristics to ensure maximum feedback as well as rider comfort. The shock is completely adjustable for rebound and high/low speed compression damping, allowing riders to tailor the behaviour according to conditions and preference.


REAR LINK

A rear linkage system was specially developed for the Husqvarna Enduro line-up. It has excellent characteristics in fast and flowing sections, and excels on steep downhills thanks to the lower rear end feel. It offers great rider comfort in all situations and has great progressiveness in extremely rocky and bumpy sections. The linkage system also offers vast possibilities to tailor the behaviour of the rear end by changing the length of the linkage arms.


CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS

The black anodised CNC machined triple clamps have been revised for MY15. The bottom clamp has been redesigned in order to mount the same front fender as the Motocross models, providing improved stability and mounting of the front fender. The stylish triple clamps combine looks with function and deliver maximum feedback to the rider under braking, in rough terrain and on jumps, relaying accurate information on the behaviour of the front end in every situation, increasing rider confidence. The R&D department’s efforts were focused on ensuring uniform clamping of the fork legs in order to distribute the forces evenly, maintaining the leg shape, and thus proper damping along the entire stroke.


BODYWORK

A new front mask on the MY15 Enduro bikes evolves the Husqvarna look and houses a new front headlamp. The front fender is also new and is the same as the Motocross fender, for easier mounting. The slim and stylish lines of the side panels and radiator shrouds allow for optimal movement while riding, resulting in superior control, and faster and safer riding.


EQUIPMENT

The standard equipment levels on the FE 250 are astonishing. Only top-of-the-line products will do, such as the Neken handlebar, handguards and electric starter. For the die hard enthusiasts, riding pleasure is further enhanced by a complete range of Husky Power accessories.


SEAT

The harder and more durable seat cover improves grip and also gives the seat a firmer feel, improving comfort and feeling.


HANDGUARDS

The handguards now feature a new improved compound of the two-component mould for better impact resistance.
