2022 Husqvarna FE250 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine

The FE 250’s engine is designed to be powerful, light and compact. With all major components and shaft arrangements carefully positioned to centralise mass, its renowned outstanding performance and handling characteristics are maintained. Through innovative manufacturing processes and design, the engine only weighs 27.6 kg and delivers a smooth, torquey power delivery which makes the FE 250 accessible for both professionals and amateurs.

 

FAULTLESS PERFORMANCE

Cylinder head

The cylinder head features advanced technology aimed at reducing weight and drag: from the low friction surface upon which the twin overhead camshafts rotate, to the four lightweight titanium valves – intake 32.5 mm, exhaust 26.5 mm – that are actuated by DLC (diamond like carbon) coated finger followers. This aids the engine to rev freely while maintaining smooth, efficient power throughout the rpm range.

 

CYLINDER AND PISTON

The cylinder is taken over from the successful FC 250 motocross model and features the same 78 mm bore. It also houses a forged bridged-box-type piston, professionally engineered from high-strength aluminium. The compression ratio of 13.8:1, in combination with the state-of-the-art cylinder as well as cylinder head gasket, provides outstanding performance and reliability.

 

EXHAUST

The exhaust system is expertly designed to deliver class-leading performance at the lowest possible weight. The header pipe is designed and manufactured in two pieces, to be as compact as possible. The joining position allows it to be removed without having to take out the rear shock. Further innovation allows for a short, compact silencer without increasing noise levels. The component is crafted from lightweight aluminium and is stylishly finished off in a black coating that highlights its premium quality.

 

State-of-the-art chassis

FRAME

The chromium molybdenum steel frame is expertly crafted using laser-cut, robot-welded, hydro-formed tubes, ensuring the highest level of precision and quality. The specifically crafted geometry utilises advanced longitudinal and torsional flex characteristics, for unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption and exceptional straight-line stability. The cylinder head mountings are made of forged aluminium, improving handling and comfort. The premium blue powder coated frame features standard frame protectors, providing extra durability.

 

COMPOSITE CARBON FIBRE SUBFRAME

The carbon composite subframe is unique to Husqvarna Motorcycles and showcases advanced production technology and innovation. Using 70% polyamide and 30% carbon fibre, the 2-piece subframe has a total weight of just over 1 kg. With the help of computational dynamics, specific rigidity was engineered into the light and robust subframe, delivering outstanding handling and rider comfort.

 

INTEGRATED COOLING AND RADIATORS

The radiators are expertly crafted using high-strength aluminium with CFD (computational fluid dynamics) to channel air through the radiators more efficiently. The cooling system is intelligently integrated into the frame, eliminating the need for additional hoses. The large centre tube running through the frame reduces pressure at this point, allowing for a consistent coolant flow. Additionally, the radiators are mounted close to the centre of gravity for improved handling agility. A radiator fan is fitted as standard to keep engine temperatures low in all conditions.

 

TRIPLE CLAMPS

The black-anodized, CNC-machined triple clamps offer premium quality standard on all Husqvarna enduro models. They have a carefully calculated 22 mm offset and are designed to provide the perfect harmony between the frame dynamics and fork settings. Expertly crafted using superior techniques and materials, they provide the highest levels of quality and reliability. They also offer 2-way handlebar adjustment as standard, allowing for customisable ergonomics.

 

RACE-WINNING SETUP

WP XPLOR FRONT FORK

The WP XPLOR 48 front fork is designed specifically for enduro riding. Its open cartridge layout has a spring in each leg with split damping functions. Compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right. Adjustment is via easy-to-access clickers (30 clicks) on the top of each fork leg. The standard preload adjusters allow for easier adjustment without the use of tools. The fork’s mid-valve piston delivers consistent damping, while the setting allows the fork to operate higher in the stroke for exceptional rider feedback and bottoming resistance. A new oil bypass in the outer tube reduces friction for a smoother, consistent travel through the stroke and a revised cartridge joint offers added damping performance.

 

WP XACT REAR SHOCK

The WP XACT shock provides advanced damping characteristics to the range. New valve seals with reduced hardness offer improved shock feedback. The compact and lightweight shock features a pressure balance inside, ensuring consistent damping and superior rider comfort. Using the same linkage progression found in the Husqvarna Motocross range, the rear end sits low for improved control in extreme enduro conditions. The fully adjustable component delivers 300 mm rear wheel travel, as well as unrivalled traction, feeling and energy absorption.

 

Hydraulic Brakes

The highest level of quality is guaranteed with the new BRAKTEC braking system, offering the highest level of braking performance while being specifically tailored for enduro riding and delivering a sensitive and modulated feel. GSK wave disks (260 mm disc front and 220 mm rear) complete the high-quality braking package for complete confidence.

 

Hydraulic Clutch

The new high quality BRAKTEC clutch system guarantees even wear, reliable and near maintenance-free operation as well as perfect modulation in every condition. Meaning that play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time.

 

BODYWORK

The FE 250 features a bodywork which clearly showcases Husqvarna Motorcycles’ progressive approach to offroad motorcycles while rugged grey and electric yellow accents provide a distinctive look and stylishly adorn the Swedish inspired design. The ergonomics are specifically tailored to deliver great comfort and control. As a result of extensive testing, the slim contact points make shifting between riding positions easier and allow the rider to flow with movement. The flat seat profile, together with the seat cover texture, deliver superior comfort and control in all conditions.

 

PREMIUM TECHNOLOGY

Map switch and traction control

Designed for easy operation, the standard map switch selects between 2 EFI maps and activates the traction control feature. The TC (Traction Control) feature improves control on slick terrain. Traction Control can be switched on or off from the map switch. It functions by analysing throttle input from the rider and the rate at which the engine RPM increases. If the RPM increases too quickly, the EMS registers a loss of grip and reduces the amount of power to the rear wheel, ensuring maximum traction.

 

THROTTLE BODY

The FE 250 features a 42 mm Keihin throttle body optimised for throttle response. The injector is positioned to ensure the most efficient flow into the combustion chamber while the throttle cable is mounted directly without a throttle linkage. This provides an immediate throttle response and improved feel.

 

ELECTRIC START AND WIRING HARNESS

The FE 250 comes standard with an electric starter. The system uses a compact and lightweight Li-Ion battery which is 1 kg lighter than a conventional battery. With several years of experience of developing and perfecting electric starting, the proven reliability on the Husqvarna enduro range is second to none, ensuring a quick and seamless start in any condition. Additionally, the wiring harness concentrates all needed electrical components into a common area below the seat for easy accessibility.

 

AIRBOX

The airbox on the FE 250 features precisely positioned inlet ducts aimed at preventing air deformation and ensuring maximum airflow and filter protection. The air filter can be easily accessed without the use of tools, by removing the left side panel. The Twin Air filter and filter cage design features a simple fail proof mounting system, guaranteeing safe and easy maintenance.
