Closer Look: 2017 Husqvarna Enduro | Latest
Husqvarna Motorcycles has today officially unveiled its complete line-up of all-new 2017 enduro models.
At the the official press launch in the historical home town in Huskvarna, Sweden, Husqvarna introduced its highly anticipated 2017 enduro range and it did not disappoint. Wide spread changes across the two-stroke and four-stroke range make the 2017 Husqvarna line-up close to all-new.
In the two-stroke department, riders now have the choice of a TX 125, TE 250 and 300 and four-stroke fans have a FE 250, 350, 450 and 501 to choose from.
Consistent across all models are changes to the suspension and frame. All models feature a new frame while the composite subframe is 1kg lighter than previous year’s.
WP suspension has again been enrolled by Husqvarna but this year it’s the all-new Xplor fork that has been chosen for the job. Featuring an open cartridge layout with a spring in each leg and split damping functions, all adjusters – including pre-load – are situated on top of each fork leg.
At the rear WP’s new DCC linkage shock is 0.36 kg lighter than the previous version.
