MATTIGHOFEN, Austria - For its final model year, Husaberg has upgraded its entire lineup of two-stroke and four-stroke enduro motorcycles.

“The 2014 model range represents a fantastic and unique opportunity to own a pure Husaberg for the very last time,” the company said in a news release.

KTM announced earlier this month that it is discontinuing Husaberg, merging its technology with Husqvarna’s.

After introducing a new and extended model range for 2013, Husaberg said its goal for 2014 was “to advance and optimize the rideability of all seven of its models.”

In addition, the company fitted the FE 250 with a new motor that offers “notably more torque than its predecessor.” The motor features a new cylinder head, a shorter stroke, a new crankshaft, a reportedly 5-percent-heavier flywheel, new crankcases, and an updated engine management system. Husaberg also added the DDS clutch system.

A new exhaust system matches the new engine and features a new header pipe and a silencer with dual-cone perforated pipes.

All models receive new suspension settings. “Improved traction and greater rider comfort is one of the most significant highlights of the 2014 Husaberg range,” Husaberg said. The WP PDS shock features simplified seal changing and preload adjustment. The FE 250’s suspension settings are now identical to the FE 350’s.  (continued)
