2014 Husqvarna FE 250 Enduro | First Look Review & Specs

2014 Husqvarna FE 250 Preview

The smallest in Husqvarna’s 2014 FE (Four-stroke Enduro) lineup is the FE 250 Enduro. Like its motocross (FC and TC) and endure brothers (FE and TE), the FE 250 features the polyamide rear subframe that’s offered across the Husky lineup.

Husky, which celebrates its 110th anniversary this year, and has reunited with Husaberg after 25 years*,  says “uniquely housing the airbox and electronics of each model, the high-tech composite construction of the polyamide subframe is designed to offer optimum rigidity while also allowing more flex than a traditional aluminum structure. The unique three-piece fiberglass-reinforced subframe also provides an ideal grab handle, and gives the bike greater impact resistance (polyamide will bend back into place unlike aluminum).”

The FE 250 also features other elements founds across the entire 2014 Husqvarna lineup, including an aluminum swingarm built from the single component casting process, and WP suspension.

Speaking of the 2014 Husqvarna FE 250, Husky says: “At the heart of the FE 250 beats a König forged bridged-box-type piston. Like its FC sibling, the FE’s DOHC head utilizes titanium valves and DLC-coated finger followers, but is tuned specifically for off-road by way of unique cams.

“The torque of the FC 250 is focused in its mid-range, making it optimum for tough enduro-style terrain while a dedicated flywheel further improves traction. The Pankl crankshaft and connecting rod ensure durability and long service intervals.”

After 25 years apart, Husaberg and Husqvarna have come back together, reconnecting the heritage, classic style and innovative craftsmanship that introduced motocross to America. The first generation of this revitalized brand reflects a time that both Husaberg and Husqvarna can trace their roots back to – a time when blue, yellow and white Swedish-bred bikes ruled the off-road world. Husqvarna is now proud to recapture the spirit of this dominant era with the 2014 line of Austrian-built motorcycles, and return the iconic brand to the highest ranks of off-road competition.
