The FE 450 features class leading technology and premium components standard. The chromium molybdenum frame is expertly crafted to offer the ideal flex while the powerful engine features shaft arrangements aimed at improving mass centralisation and handling. Combined with a carbon fiber composite subframe, WP suspension and enduro specific rear linkage, the FE 450 holds no compromise in pure enduro performance and quality.Features may include:
Weighing only 65.5 lbs the 450cc engine is not only light and compact but features the latest technology available offering unequalled performance, ride-ability and reliability in its class. Additionally, the engine is suited specifically for enduro type riding with a standard electric start and a 6 speed wide ratio gearbox.
The lightweight aluminium cylinder features a 95 mm bore and a lightweight Koenig bridge-box-type piston. This combination produces very little oscillating mass significantly reducing vibration and increasing rider comfort.
The compact SOHC cylinder head offers maximum performance at the minimum possible weight. The camshaft actuates four lightweight valves (titanium intake Ø=40mm 32.6g, steel exhaust Ø=33mm 42.6g) through a robust rocker arm system.
A plain big end bearing comprising of two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 135 hours.
The hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded frame is expertly crafted by WP Performance Systems. The flex character of the frame is specifically tailored to benefit suspension functionality, handling and comfort. The frame fitted with standard frame protectors and an engine protector which mounts directly to the frame guaranteeing superior protection and durability.
The composite subframe is a design unique to Husqvarna showcasing pioneering technologies and innovation. This 3 piece component is made up of 30% carbon fiber making it remarkably light (3.1 lbs). Specific care is taken to engineer a calculated rigidity for optimal handling and rider ergonomics.
The WP Xplor 48 front fork is 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.
The WP DCC rear shock is designed to provide advanced damping characteristics while keeping to a compact and lightweight design. With a pressure balance inside the shock, the stroke is more seamless resulting in greater rider comfort and handling while the corrugated outer contour of the reservoir improves cooling.
