Four All-new 2015 Husqvarna Motorcycles!

2015 Husqvarna TE 125

2015 Husqvarna TE 125

Husqvarna’s two-stroke enduro category grows a little wider with the new TE 125, which provides much more choice to off-road riders searching for the simple design and easy maintenance of a two-stroke. The TE 125 bears many of the same features of the larger TE machines, including the sophisticated 4CS WP fork, linked rear suspension featuring the DCC (dual compression control) WP rear shock. Husqvarna’s signature bank CNC-machined triple clamps ensure optimum clamping surface and precision power over the front end while also supplying four different handlebar positions.

The eighth-liter mill includes a high-performance cylinder and power control device. The Vertex piston is designed to provide healthy bottom-end torque as well as exceptional top-end performance. In keeping with its simple and lightweight nature, the TE a hundred and twenty-five relies on a kick-starter (rather than electric).

The TE 125’s Magura hydraulic clutch offers smooth, consistent actuation of the six-speed transmission while Boyesen reed valves ensure crisp throttle response and optimum durability.

2015 Husqvarna FC 350

Husqvarna’s middleweight four-stroke motocross machine has arrived. By combining the lightweight agility of the 250 and the hard-hitting power of the 450, the FC 350 provides premium performance on the track. In line with the FC 250 platform, the 350 is powered by a DOHC motor with lightweight titanium valves and DLC (diamond like carbon) coated finger followers. The CP-Carrillo forged box-type piston combines maximum efficiency and reliability with minimum bodyweight. Husky claims an impressive 54 horsepower.

The FC 350 carries the same 2015 upgrades to the FC 250, including the CSS clutch and one-piece machined steel clutch basket (see below). The FC 350 shares the suspension elements, and key features such as electrical start and Brembo brakes and hydraulic clutch with the FC family. Unlike its 250 and 450 siblings, however , the FC 350 will carry Husqvarna’s standard fiberglass-reinforced polyamide composite rear subframe.

Dual Sport FE 350 S

Dual Sports activity FE 350 S & FE 501 S

Husqvarna’s street-legal dual-sport motorcycles are back and the FE 350 S and FE 501 S mix high-performance off-road performance with street-legal versatility. Based on the already popular FE 350 and FE 501, the particular “S” models come equipped with all of the accessories needed to carry a license dish, opening up worlds of possibility to your trail and tarmac adventures.

The FE 350 S features a DOHC four-stroke engine with a heavier crankshaft than its rough-road counterpart for improved traction. The FE 501 S is run by an SOHC four-stroke motor with titanium intake valves and DLC-coated rocker arms, also tuned for improved traction and optimum durability with a three-layer head seal.

The FE 350 S and FE 501 S are equipped with the same premium suspension elements as the rest of the FE family, the particular 4CS WP fork and link-mounted DCC WP shock but are optimized for the specific demands associated with dual-sport riding.
