Husqvarna Motorcycles Lift the Covers from their All-New 2017 Enduro Line-Up

 

July 11, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Husqvarna Motorcycles has today officially unveiled their complete line-up of all-new enduro models at the historic brand’s homeland in Huskvarna, Sweden.

 

Embodying Husqvarna’s pioneering spirit, each of the enduro machines has been redesigned from the ground up for 2017. Featuring the most advanced technology they set the benchmark in terms of handling, power, weight and aesthetics.

Introducing completely new design, reduced weight, best-in-class handling and dynamic ergonomics, Husqvarna’s 2-stroke TX 125, TE 250 and 300 and 4-stroke FE 250, 350, 450 and 501 models offer the ideal blend of functionality and Swedish-inspired style.

 

All 2017 models are equipped with new lighter and more compact engines, with the 4-stroke range featuring unique traction control system as standard. Fitted within redesigned frames the engines offer class-leading performance that’s specifically tailored to ensure a next level enduro riding experience.

 

Designed to blaze new trails, excel in all conditions and deliver a next-level enduro experience the 2017 Husqvarna enduro range represent the next step for the historic brand’s offroad motorcycle range.

 

MAJOR CHASSIS UPGRADES

 

Husqvarna’s 2017 enduro models feature new frames, which ensure increased rider comfort and confidence. Manufactured to the highest standards by WP Performance Systems, the lighter frames offer 20% higher torsional rigidity for improved stability and agility, while longitudinal stiffness is reduced by 30% for improved suspension functionality.

 

Remaining unique to Husqvarna, the composite subframe has been redesigned to fit the new chassis. Made with 30% carbon fibre, the subframe is 1 kg lighter than the previous part. All 2017 Husqvarna models have CNC machined triple clamps with an offset of 22 mm fitted as standard. Completing the chassis package the new swingarm has a specifically machined rear axle that allows for the chain adjuster markings to be seen from above.

A major update in the suspension department are the all-new WP Xplor 48 front forks. Featuring an open cartridge layout with a spring in each leg and split damping functions, all adjusters – including an innovative pre-load adjuster as standard – 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.

 

Positioned 6 mm higher than on Husqvarna’s motocross bikes, new self-cleaning footpeg mounts prevent dirt build-up. Along with the new ODI lock-on grips and adjustable throttle assembly (4-strokes), they ensure an improved riding experience.

 

High quality Brembo callipers and controls combine with GSK discs to deliver optimum stopping power. The rear brake features a 24 mm piston (26 mm on previous models) and a 10 mm longer rear brake lever for better control while braking.

The airbox has a new design with precisely positioned inlet ducts aimed at preventing air deformation and ensuring maximum airflow and protection. The filter cage now features a simple fail proof mounting system for safe and accurate filter installation.

 

With futuristic new bodywork all models feature Swedish-inspired design and striking blue and yellow colours.

Lighter and more compact, they feature a completely new construction that focuses on mass centralisation. Updated pistons are designed to match the reworked cylinders, while new crankshafts and counter balancer shafts significantly reduced vibrations.

A major upgrade across the 2017 2-stroke range is the new 38 mm flat slide Mikuni TMX carburettor. Providing an even smoother and more controllable power delivery the new Mikuni carburettor is less sensitive to temperature and altitude changes.

 

One of the most significant upgrades for 2017 is the lightweight electric start system, which is now placed and well protected under the engine on all the TE models. The system can also be fitted to the TX 125 as an optional extra, available from Husqvarna Accessories.

A complete new exhaust system on the TX 125 is designed to match the specific characteristics of the new engines to deliver top-level performance. The larger displacement TE models have a new header for optimum durability.

 

For the smaller displacement TX 125 the gearbox is completely redesigned. All the updates have brought massive reduction in weight across Husqvarna’s 2017 2-stroke range.

The 2017 Husqvarna FE models feature reworked cylinder heads, updated cylinders and new crankshafts, which ensure optimum durability and guarantee long service intervals of 135 hours.

 

The Keihin Engine Management System (EMS) on all 4-strokes is specifically designed to be smaller, lighter and faster at processing data. It integrates selectable engine maps via the switch on the handlebar as well as traction control. Combined with the new gear sensor, power delivery is tailored for each gear.

An all-new Keihin 42 mm throttle body sees its injector placed to provide an even more efficient flow of fuel to the combustion chamber.

 

All 4-stroke models are also fitted with updated header pipes and shorter mufflers, which are now placed 50 mm closer to the engine. The redesigned enduro-specific gearbox now has a gear sensor that allows for specific engine mapping for each gear.

 

All the latest updates in the 2017 FE engines have brought significant weight savings, ranging from 0.7 kg to 1.7 kg.

      Hi all, 
      Back after a hiatus from supermotos after I sold my KTM 625SMC. Now I've got a 701SM (2016) and ... of course, fuel injection, no more carbs! 
       
      Couple of questions I hope someone can help with - the bike already had a few mods: 
      Akrapovic slip on, with EVO Airbox mod. 
      power commander V 
      ABS dongle mod
      Those are all that's really relevant for this post. 
      Essentially the previous owner told me that 0 was the bad quality fuel map, 1 was sport map and 2 onwards were standard maps. Doing a little digging, it turned out this wasn't quite correct. 
      1 is the soft map, 2 is the sport map and 3 onwards are standard as far as I've found. 0 is of course the bad fuel map only for dire situations on low octane. 
      My question is, will the PCV change these maps at all? 
      I don't know where to control the PCV maps 'on the fly' - seems this requires a separate module? 
      Other than this I think I have it right that the PCV control injection, whereas the underseat switch controls ignition timing. This would make sense given that on low octane, preventing detonation is usually Achieved by regarding ignition. 
       
      Can anyone correct me or give any of their findings? 
       
      Thanks 
      Wilbert

      On my 2008 rmz 450, at 1/4 throttle there's this horrible studder. It started about a month ago. The bike has about 70 hours on it i bought it later last year and never had a problem with it. The only thing that i changed on it was the header pipe it had the stock one and i tweaked it where it was making a weird noise so i replaced it with a stock one.
      Things i have tried............................
      New spark plug
      Cleaned the air filter 
      Oil change 
      Checked the valves one exhaust is on the loose side but not out of spec.
      I may try injector cleaner but idk if thats ok for these bikes.
      Any help is appreciated thanks in advance

      I have a 2018 Fe 501 with only about 60 Miles on it. I noticed today that at idle, if I blip the throttle quickly and then let off the engine will either bog down or die completely. I thought it may be related to the JD tuner I had just installed last night, but I unplugged the tuner and it is still doing it. Has anyone else had this issue? Please help!

      Hi Im Shaggy, Long time lurker first time poster.
      I bought a new 2018 Husqvarna FE501 and drove it 50 miles to my home. In stock form it vibrates like crazy, The front and rear tires oscillate up and down at anything above 50mph,, and the seat is terrible for anything but offroad.
      Parts Ordered are
      Ktmandhusky exhaust cap Ktmandhusky smog delete TPStool Seatconcepts seat (Blue) Polisport clutch guard (Blue) Spoke weights Now moving on to the Questions, Whats the easiest method to removing the TPS cover? Whats the electrical connector inside the airbox? Who besides Munn Racing does the EURO map (PM ME PLEASE)? Without the euro map installed, Will the factory MAP switch work on the 2018 model???  Thanks and greetings to you all..
