Wow it looks like the FE isnt going to be a dual sport anymore after the 17 was delayed because of emissions verification.

Could just be something they overlooked. 501/701 wasn't pictured... Maybe just the standard pictures. Looks like they still have license plate bracket on the back.

I am sure the 701 will be street legal.   No 501 pictured so I agree, we dont know but I think you could be right.   I guess the 501 and 701 are doing their own thing?   450 and lower are not street legal.

Is this a USA announcement?  I thought the FE's would have the signal lights etc on them.  Or has KTM decided to have KTM 4 strokes be the dual sports and Husky to be the dirt bikes?

Interesting that the Husky 250/300 get the FI, but on the KTM, only the 250 will.

 

Joe

USA is only getting the 250TPI. But KTM is making a 300TPI dual sport but for European markets only. And from my understanding USA is only getting the TE250i. Unless I'm wrong???

So I'M told this is a European press release.

 

'18 Husky in the US is carbureted just like the KTM. Their fuel injected bike will also be a late year release.

You're correct. We got the info from the Head of Media and Public Relations in Austria. Although, the press release included:

"The new Husqvarna MY18 enduro range will be available worldwide from July 2017 at all authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealers."

Those are some damn fine bikes, it's too bad I'm still butthurt about KTM saving and eliminating the Husaberg name.  Twice parent company Electrolux sold out the Sweedish engineers  that made KTM dominant in 4 Stroke off road competition.  Husqvarna was long gone to Cagiva in italy.  Twenty years later sold to BMW.  Then six more before coming back in name only with 26 years of Swedish Husaberg effort to add BNG's on production Bergs for ay least the next two years + some. I know the 88-89 bikes  motors were Huskys, but they were designed by the same Seeedish engineers who created those motors as Husqvarna employees.  While being praised for Austrian excelence years later the Orange bike 250 KTM 4 stroke was entirely a Seeedish design.  Honesty, I'm happy to see their success, it only hurts every time a newbee repeatedly mispronounces Husqvarna with stuterung additionsl "a's".  Most likely having zero knowledge they were not part of KTM or Sweedish motorcycle technology for more than the last 1/4 century.

This is their enduro  line up,not dual sport. Most enduro races require a head light and tail light.

The 2017 line up has turn signals on the FE 450.

Your right ,first three are FE. Which is their four stroke enduro bikes correct?

Yup (Four stroke Enduro)!   Its a confusing move.  The FE450 was Dual Sport, I dont think they changed the motor, so why not make it a DS?

      Hey guys! Thinking about getting a husky TE 250 to start. Finally found a good offer for a 2010 TC husky turned to TE (was cross, now is road-legal). This guy wants 2000 dollars. No e-start. My question is: is the TC  a good bike for enduro? Is it good in the woods/trails? What about in General, is it a good bike? Would you buy it? Thanks!
