Husaberg North America has announced the 2013 model range available in the U.S. market. The high-end off road manufacturer, with its roots in the Swedish origin of Husqvarna, has a well deserved reputation for innovation.
Interestingly, Husaberg has abandoned the unique architecture of its four-stroke singles (whose cylinders were previously laid over at a near horizontal angle) claiming the handling advantages of that design are more than offset by significant weight reductions in the reciprocating mass in the new engines.
Both the four-stroke and two-stroke models (described in the Husaberg press release below) each receive new frames with improved rigidity balance and a WP fork with “patented floor chamber technology.” Complete details are available at www.husaberg.com
Murrieta, CA – Husaberg North America, a division of KTM North America, Inc is excited to announce its 2013 model line-up including a range of 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines that will suit riders in every competition class.
FE 250: The newest addition to the Husaberg model range is the all new FE 250. The FE 250 is the first 250cc 4-stroke model from Husaberg. The FE 250 features a lightweight and compact power plant with a modern electronic fuel-injection. The quick and responsive FE 250 is the new weapon of choice for all enduro racers.
FE 350: After winning an Enduro World Championship after its release in 1991, Husaberg is back on track with the return of the FE 350. The FE 350 succeeds the FE 390 in the 2013 line-up for the new and growing mid-size division that performs like a 450 but feels like a 250.
FE 501: Husaberg’s most successful model in racing so far, the legendary FE 501 is back for 2013. The FE 501 combines a huge weight reduction in 2013 with massive power that represents what Husaberg encompasses: Ultimate rideability without compromise.
TE 250: The TE 250 now offers a more lively power delivery and all new chassis. An adjustable power valve and selectable ignition curves give the rider the ability to adjust the bike to their personal riding style. In 2013, the TE 250 also features the standard 6-speed transmission and electric starter.
TE 300: Known for its matchless power-to-weight ratio the TE 300 approaches 2013 with a completely new chassis with even more power and agility than ever before. The TE 300 is proven to be the ultimate extreme enduro bike.
The entire 2013 Husaberg line-up features a new frame, made of chromoly, subframe made of high-strength plastic, a new swingarm and new bodywork. Additional elements to the 2013 chassis are the patented 4 chamber technology, closed cartridge forks by WP Suspension. The new user-friendly fork enables both the rebound and compression adjustments to be made at the upper end of the fork. The Husaberg’s 2013 innovative chassis are fully equipped, integrated and characterized to provide optimal functionality.
