Boundless Power 

Not that it was necessary at all, but the 2017 model has increased performance over the previous engine, with a broader spread and more torque. It is also a lot lighter and more compact. Making sense of all of that mighty power, the 2017 FE models boast an optimised new map-switch, which also activates Traction Control. Starting a bike in the most difficult positions is part of enduro riding and is why all FE and TE models come standard with an electric starter. For 2017 the bikes are fitted with a compact Li-Ion battery, 1 kg lighter than conventional batteries. The wiring harness is designed so that the rear sub-frame can be removed without removing any wiring. Class-leading BREMBO brakes control the 2017 line-up.

Engine

Featuring the latest technology, the FE 450 engine is fully redesigned for MY17. With increased performance, smaller dimensions and a weight saving of 1.7kg, the engine also features a revised cylinder head and class-leading electronics. The 450cc power plant is more advanced than ever before while weighing in at only 29.7kg

Cylinder and piston

The lightweight aluminium cylinder is an engineering masterpiece featuring a 95 mm bore and a lightweight Konig bridge-box-type piston. Coupled with the lightweight piston is a new, lighter piston pin. This combination produces very little oscillating mass significantly reducing vibration and increasing rider comfort. The compression ratio is 11.8:1

Cylinder head

The compact SOHC cylinder head offers maximum performance at the minimum possible weight. The new camshaft actuates four lightweight valves (titanium intake Ø=40mm 32,6g, steel exhaust Ø=33mm 42,6g) through a robust rocker arm system. Additionally, the timing drive is revised with a new, shorter timing chain and friction optimised chain guides which reduce drag and increase efficiency and performance. The new design of the cylinder head saves 350g. 

Crankshaft

The new crankshaft is 100g lighter but features the same level of inertia as its predecessor. Additionally, a shorter connecting rod and new crankshaft position improve mass centralisation and contribute to the compact design. A plain big end bearing comprising of two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 135 hours.
