MURRIETA, Calif. - Husaberg North America, a division of KTM North America, has revamped its entire motorcycle lineup for 2013.

All models, two-stroke and four-stroke, feature a new chromoly frame, a new plastic subframe, a new swingarm and new bodywork.

Another element of the 2013 chassis is the patented four-chamber closed-cartridge forks by WP Suspension. The new forks enable both the rebound and compression adjustments to be made at the upper end of the fork.

Four-Stroke Models
The new FE 250 is the first 250cc four-stroke model from Husaberg. Its lightweight and compact power plant is paired with electronic fuel injection.

Husaberg claims to be back on track with the return of the FE 350, which won an Enduro World Championship after its release in 1991. The FE 350 succeeds the FE 390 in the 2013 lineup for the company’s new and growing midsize division.

The FE 501, Husaberg’s most successful model in racing so far, is back for 2013. The company says the model “combines a huge weight reduction in 2013 with massive power.”

Two-Stroke Models
The TE 250 offers a more lively power delivery to complement the new chassis. An adjustable power valve and selectable ignition curves give riders the ability to adjust the bike to their personal riding style. In 2013, the TE 250 also features the standard six-speed transmission and electric starter.

Boasting an even greater power-to-weight ratio, the TE 300 has “even more power and agility than ever before,” according to Husaberg.

Details, engine specs and photos are now posted on Husaberg’s website.
