Using its factory race teams as a source for R&D, Husqvarna has updated its 2016 lineup of enduro motorcycles, which includes the TE (two-stroke) and FE (four-stroke) models.

All seven 2016 Husqvarna enduro bikes – TE 125, TE 250, TE 300, FE 250, FE 350, FE 450, FE 501 – and the two street-legal dual sports – FE 350S and FE 501S – have received major engine, chassis and suspension upgrades to improve performance and rideability.

Speaking of the 2016 Husqvarna TE and FE motorcycle lineup, Husky says “Together with Husqvarna’s off-road race teams, experienced designers and engineers have worked tirelessly to deliver important updates for the coming year. Extensive input into the 2016 models has come from Husqvarna’s top-level racers – Enduro 2 World Champion Pela Renet, Extreme Enduro star Graham Jarvis and AMA National Enduro Champion Andrew DeLong. Knowledge gained from competition lies at the heart of Husqvarna’s 2016 model improvements.”

One of the largest upgrades across the entire 2016 Husqvarna TE and FE lineup is the new 22mm offset triple clamps. The new setup is designed to evenly distribute the clamping force on the fork leg. Husqvarna says when combined with the new front axle and axle clamp geometry it ensures improved agility and stability. The triple clamps also allow for four handlebar positions to suit the needs of a wide variety of riders.

The 4CS fork, which enters its fourth year as the stock fork, has been revised for improved damping and handling on the 2016 Husqvarna enduro lineup, and feature easy-access clicker dials for adjustments on the go. The high performance DCC (Dual Compression Control) rear link suspension made by WP has a revised setup perfectly matching the geometry and setup changes on the front-end, allowing the rider to command the trail with confidence.

Modifications to the lubrication system on the FE 250 and FE 350 improve lubrication in extreme conditions while also helping to prevent damage against excessive oil fill-up.

Further developments for 2016 see new fork protectors, a standard ignition map switch, GFK disc brakes front and rear, lighter spokes with a weight saving of 100g, a sporty looking blue anodized Supersprox 2K rear sprocket, new seat cover and finally new colors and graphics that reflect Husqvarna’s traditional colors, Husky reports.
