Total Enduro Precision
The lightest, most compact Husqvarna 4-stroke enduro bike. Smooth 4-stroke torque and power in a much lighter and more compact chassis. A new precision-built frame offers improved agility, better bump absorption and optimum suspension functionality while only weighing 8.8 kg. New laterally-mounted head-stays increase handling agility and reduce vibration. All 2017 4-stroke models have new header pipes and shorter mufflers for maximum performance within the FIM noise limits. Enduro riders face some of the toughest conditions, always looking for positive traction to drive the bike forward. The 2017 range of 4-strokes have an optimised map-switch, which also activates the Traction Control feature.
The new 250cc engine is re-designed to be more powerful, lighter and more compact. All major components and shaft arrangements are carefully positioned to best suit the performance and handling characteristics of the overall package. As a result, the engine is 20mm shorter and 0.7 kg lighter than before weighing in at a total of 27.6 kg including electric starter. Additionally, power delivery is improved throughout the 12,800 rpm range while the engine still retains its torquey nature making the FE 250 accessible for both professional and amateur riders.
The new cylinder head features advanced technology aimed at significantly reducing weight and drag. The new twin overhead camshafts are 150g lighter and rotate on a low friction surface. Additionally, the four lightweight titanium valves (intake 32.5mm, exhaust 26.5mm) are actuated by finger followers made up of a 30% harder DLC (diamond like carbon) coating while the timing drive consists of a new, shorter DID chain, with new sprockets and new chain guides all aimed at reducing friction.
The crankcase is engineered to house the shaft arrangements at the ideal centre of gravity. The clutch shaft position has moved 11.1mm back and 26.9mm up making the engine 20mm shorter in total. The casings are manufactured using a high-pressure die cast production process, resulting in thin wall thickness while retaining exceptional reliability. The iconic Husqvarna logo adorns the bronze finished crankcase covers.
The new crankshaft is not only stiffer but also features a 6mm shorter stroke. The shorter stroke allows the engine to rev more freely resulting in a quick and responsive power delivery. The plain big end bearing features two force-fitted bearing shells ensuring maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 135 hours.
