2017 Husqvarna FE 450

2017 Husqvarna FE 450
White
MSRP: $10,599.00
Manufacturer: Husqvarna
Condition: New

Description

Not that it was necessary at all, but the 2017 model has increased performance over the previous engine, with a broader spread and more torque. It is also a lot lighter and more compact. Making sense of all of that mighty power, the 2017 FE models boast an optimised new map-switch, which also activates Traction Control. Starting a bike in the most difficult positions is part of enduro riding and is why all FE and TE models come standard with an electric starter. For 2017 the bikes are fitted with a compact Li-Ion battery, 1 kg lighter than conventional batteries. The wiring harness is designed so that the rear sub-frame can be removed without removing any wiring. Class-leading BREMBO brakes control the 2017 line-up.

Features

Engine

  • Featuring the latest technology, the FE 450 engine is fully redesigned for MY17. With increased performance, smaller dimensions and a weight saving of 1.7kg, the engine also features a revised cylinder head and class-leading electronics. The 450cc power plant is more advanced than ever before while weighing in at only 29.7kg

Cylinder and piston

  • The lightweight aluminium cylinder is an engineering masterpiece featuring a 95 mm bore and a lightweight Konig bridge-box-type piston. Coupled with the lightweight piston is a new, lighter piston pin. This combination produces very little oscillating mass significantly reducing vibration and increasing rider

Cylinder head

  • The compact SOHC cylinder head offers maximum performance at the minimum possible weight. The new camshaft actuates four lightweight valves (titanium intake Ø=40mm 32,6g, steel exhaust Ø=33mm 42,6g) through a robust rocker arm system. Additionally, the timing drive is revised with a new, shorter timing chain and friction optimised chain guides which reduce drag and increase efficiency and performance. The new design of the cylinder head saves 350g.

Crankshaft

  • The new crankshaft is 100g lighter but features the same level of inertia as its predecessor. Additionally, a shorter connecting rod and new crankshaft position improve mass centralisation and contribute to the compact design. A plain big end bearing comprising of two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 135 hours.

Chromoly steel frame

  • While keeping the same successful geometry from MY 16, the hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded frame is expertly crafted by WP Performance Systems. The 6mm wider and 2 mm lower steel tubes offer 20% higher torsional rigidity while longitudinal stiffness is reduced by 30%. The increased torsional rigidity improves stability and agility while reducing the longitudinal stiffness creates increased flexibility for better bump absorption and suspension functionality. The new frame weighs only 8.8 kg making it 0.6 kg lighter than its predecessor.

Composite carbon fibre subframe

  • The composite subframe is a design unique to Husqvarna motorcycles showcasing pioneering technology and innovation. This 3 piece component is made up of 30% carbon fibre making it remarkably light (1.4 kg) saving 1 kg over the previous design. Specific care is taken to create a calculated rigidity for optimal handling and rider ergonomics.

WP Xplor 48

  • The WP Xplor 48 front fork is a completely new feature developed by WP Performance Systems specifically for enduro type riding. The forks consist of an open cartridge layout with a spring in each circuit and split damping functions. Compression can be adjusted from the left side and rebound on the right via clickers situated on the top of the fork tube. Additionally, with the standard pre-load adjuster, pre-load can be adjusted by the rider without the use of tools making the new system simple and easy to set up.

WP rear shock

  • The WP DCC rear shock is designed to provide advanced damping characteristics while keeping to a compact and lightweight design. The new rear shock weighs only 3.7 kg which is 0.36 kg lighter than the previous version. With a pressure balance inside the shock, damping is improved resulting in greater rider comfort and handling while the outer contour of the reservoir increases cooling. The component is also fully adjustable and matched to a linkage system with a specific geometry to deliver the best possible traction and absorption.

Neken handlebar & ODI grips

  • Manufactured to exact standards, the aluminium Neken handlebars offer high-strength and premium quality as standard. Fitted to the handlebars are ODI grips, the lock-on grip on the left side does not require gluing, while on the right, the vulcanised grip features an integrated throttle mechanism. The assembly has easy free-play adjustment and, by changing a cam, throttle progression can be altered.

Brembo brakes

  • Class-leading Brembo callipers and controls with high quality GSK discs deliver superior stopping power instilling confidence in all situations. For MY17, the rear brake calliper uses a smaller piston diameter 24mm instead of 26mm, coupled with a 10mm longer rear brake lever the system delivers improved modulation and feeling.

Magura hydraulic clutch

  • The high quality German-made clutch system guarantees perfect modulation of the clutch in every condition. This means that the play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and the function of the clutch remain identical in cold or hot conditions and over time. The Magura clutch also features even wear characteristics and is nearly maintenance-free
