2014 Husaberg FE 350

Posted on by  

The 2104 Husaberg FE 350 is a solid machinery built to be able to endure the toughest punishment without breaking a sweat.

The motorcycle weighs 106.7 Kg and is powered by a single cylinder, 4 stroke, spark ignition, liquid cooled engine with a displacement of 349.7 cm³. The unit is linked to a six speed claw shifted transmission and is brought to life by an electric starter.

As far as suspensions are concerned, the Husaberg FE 350 is fitted with front WP Suspension up side down 4CS forks and a rear WP Suspension PDS shock absorber.

Jump on board and you’ll be welcomed by a comfy seat, a new speedometer and tapered Neken handlebars made from a high-strength aluminium alloy.

For 2014 , the Husaberg FE 350 has also received a series of new refined, 25th anniversary graphics.

Overview

Husaberg FE 350

Because stopping is not an option

The FE 350 is the ultimate enduro when it comes to optimum rideability and enduro performance. Extremely agile thanks to its compact, powerful DOHC engine, this bike overcomes all problems presented by the terrain with incredible ease. And thanks to its playful handling, it is always at an advantage when the going gets really tough. The longer the race goes on, the more riders benefit from this - no matter whether they’re pros or beginners.

2014 Husaberg FE 350 Features and Benefits:

Husaberg FE 350

Framework:

Swingarm

The cast aluminium swingarm has been developed with state-of-the-art calculation and simulation software and constructed, in terms of design and wall thickness, for minimum weight with optimum stiffness and sufficient flex. For MY 2014 model year, the chainguide has been revised for the benefit of greater reliability, while simultaneously reducing the weight.

Triple clamps

The lower triple clamp has been optimised in order to distribute force transmission from the triple clamp to the fork outer tube more evenly. As a result, the damping behaviour of the fork is less impaired by unwanted influences.

Outdoor engineering:

Suspension

The revolutionary 4CS closed-cartridge forks have been radically revamped for MY 2014 and, together with new fork springs and settings, now provide greater reserves against bottoming out as well as improved responsiveness. In addition, the ease of maintenance has also been improved. In combination with the PDS shock absorbers, which likewise impress with updated settings, they supply optimum damping behaviour specially designed for enduro use, with maximum traction and plenty of comfort. As ever, rebound and compression damping can be adapted (on the fork from the cockpit; on the shock absorber for high and low speed as well) individually to track and rider in no time at all.

Wheels

The wheels are fitted with lightweight, CNC-machined hubs and high-end DID rims, plus spokes with lightweight, aluminium nipples, guaranteeing the highest levels of stability while keeping weight to a minimum. The Michelin Enduro tyres stand for excellent traction and outstanding performance.

Brakes

Brakes from Brembo are standard equipment on HUSABERG bikes and, together with lightweight wave brake discs, they are recognised as the measure of all things in terms of brake technology. A new handbrake armature has been developed for the 2014 model year, with new remote reservoir, smaller brake piston diameter (9 instead of 10 mm) and optimised lever kinematics. As a result and together with optimised brake pads, brake performance and application have been perceptibly improved again.

The beating heart:

Engine management system (EMS)

The engine management system from Keihin with electronic fuel injection and 42 mm throttle body ensures spontaneous, powerful responsiveness and handling, along with maximum performance. Automatic temperature and altitude compensation are state of the art. With an optional map-select switch (PowerParts), a variety of different engine characteristics can be selected. Furthermore, the user-setting tool allows data to be read from the bike by laptop and the ignition and EFI mapping to be changed with a few mouse clicks.

Transmission

The 6-speed transmission is designed specifically for the 350cc engine characteristics and for every type of enduro riding. It excels with precise and easy shifting.

DDS clutch

The one-piece outer clutch hub with primary gear is machined from a single piece of high-strength steel. This guarantees unbeatable reliability and contributes to narrow engine width with its compact, rivetless design. It also allows the use of thin steel discs, making the overall clutch package very compact. An optimised inner clutch hub improves the durability as well. A diaphragm spring enables implementation of an additional hub damping mechanism - a benefit in terms of traction and gearbox durability. In conjunction with the diaphragm spring, the hydraulic clutch actuation system from Brembo ensures very smooth and very precise clutch control.

Engine

The 350cc 4-stroke engine supplies a very broad and easily applied usable rev range with dynamic yet strength-saving engine characteristics. With peak power of more than 45 hp, the FE 350 is powerful enough to beat every 450 in the E2 class. Ultra-compact, with 57.5 mm stroke, 88 mm bore, and equipped with state-of-the-art electronic fuel injection, the engine offers a broad usable rev range and exceedingly efficient rideability – the user-friendliest bike with maximum fun factor.

Starter

The FE 350 engine is equipped with an electric starter. Positioned behind the cylinder, the electric starter is well protected and connected via the electric starter drive in the ignition cover to the optimised freewheel on the ignition rotor. It is prepared for the fitting of a kickstarter.

Cylinder head

Alongside the very small, lightweight (only 8 g) cam followers with DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, the DOHC cylinder head is equipped with 4 ultra-light titanium valves (intake 36.3 mm, exhaust 29.1 mm), allowing very high engine speeds of up to 12,000 rpm. The camshafts are designed perfectly for performance in the enduro-specific lower rev range. New valve spring retainers ensure even greater durability and an optimised auto-decompressor improves starting behaviour.

Cooling system

The tried and tested, integrated cooling system leads from the cylinder head through the frame triangle directly to the aluminium radiators made by WP RADIATOR. All 4-stroke models are equipped as standard with a fan system that has been improved with an optimised thermoswitch.

Engine case

The engine case production process was already converted from sand casting to die casting in the previous model year, thereby reducing the wall thickness and saving weight. For MY 2014, a new water-pump cover with optimised gasket ensures a secure fit.

Crankshaft

The crankshaft on the FE 350 has been designed to provide plenty of gyrating mass for uniform power development and outstanding traction. For MY 2014, the previous needle bearing is replaced with a revolutionary plain bearing in the lower eye of the Pankl connecting rod. This design enhances durability, thereby enabling an extension to the service intervals for the crankshaft - a benefit for the customer in terms of time and costs.

Perfect ergonomics:

Air box

Airbox and air filter bracket have been reinforced with fiberglass so that the air filter is kept even more securely in its intended position. The filter is replaced as quickly as ever, without any tools of course.

Handlebar

All HUSABERG models are equipped with extremely stable, tapered Neken handlebars made from a high-strength aluminium alloy. The four handlebar position settings are the tried and tested HUSABERG standard. Redesigned handguards made from ultra-sturdy, 2-component plastic have been fitted as standard for MY 2014 to both brake and clutch levers.

Graphics

A new, refined, 25th anniversary graphic design with clear, straight lines underlines the high demands made of a modern, state-of-the-art offroad motorcycle.

Fuel tank

The lightweight, polyethylene tanks are equipped on the four-strokes with fuel pump and pressure regulator. The pressure mechanism for unlocking the bayonet filler cap has been optimised to make the cap even easier and quicker to open during hectic refuelling stops.

Speedo

The new speedo developed in collaboration with TRAIL TECH impresses above all with its outstanding ergonomics. It is simpler to operate and easier to read. Moreover, the time is now shown additionally in every display mode.
