Husq­varna takes en­duro to new level

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

HUSQ­VARNA Mo­tor­cy­cles is proud to of­fer the first look at the so­phis­ti­cated, all-new 2017 en­duro model range, a line-up of seven bikes de­signed to ex­cel in all con­di­tions while sup­port­ing rid­ers of all abil­i­ties as they blaze new trails and ex­tend the lim­its of en­duro rid­ing.

Of­fer­ing the next level of en­duro ex­pe­ri­ence, Husq­varna’s two-stroke TX 125, TE 250 and 300, as well as the four-stroke FE 250, 350, 450 and 501, mod­els rep­re­sent fur­ther pro­gres­sion for the his­toric brand’s off-road mo­tor­cy­cle range.

Fea­tur­ing class-lead­ing com­po­nents com­bined with low weight and pro­gres­sive de­sign, the com­plete range of en­gines of­fers im­proved per­for­mance with a smooth and con­trol­lable power out­put across the full power range.

Re­duced weight en­sures the 2017 gen­er­a­tion Husq­varna en­duro mod­els de­liver best-in-class han­dling and per­for­mance on all ter­rain. Bristling with tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions such as com­pos­ite car­bon fi­bre sub-frames, WP Xplor 48 forks and link­age rear sus­pen­sion, to­gether with op­ti­mised frame flex­i­bil­ity, it en­sures rid­ers can push their per­sonal lim­its to the next level.

Re­call

Husq­varna Mo­tor­cy­cles is re­call­ing spe­cific frame numbers of the 2016 FC 250 ma­chines to au­tho­rised Husq­varna deal­ers for com­plete crank­shaft re­place­ment.

Fol­low­ing mar­ket in­ves­ti­ga­tions by Husq­varna Mo­tor­cy­cles, it has been de­ter­mined that de­vi­a­tions in the man­u­fac­tur­ing process of the con­nect­ing rod may re­sult in early fail­ure and frac­tur­ing of the con­rod un­der cer­tain load con­di­tions. Husq­varna Mo­tor­cy­cles is there­fore is­su­ing an in­struc­tion to re­place the com­plete crank­shaft on af­fected bikes. Cus­tomers can check on­line in the “Ser­vice” area of the Husq­varna Mo­tor­cy­cles web­site to de­ter­mine if their mo­tor­cy­cle is af­fected by this re­call.
