Undergoing multiple revisions to further enhance its proven technical abilities, the FE 250 features a new engine, frame, and suspension for 2024 for improved performance. Featuring a lightweight, compact, and redesigned engine, all riders are set to benefit from the refinements with the power delivery easily customisable for a personalised riding experience. Together with a new frame and WP Suspension, the rideability and handling are much improved with the revised, ergonomic bodywork offering even greater control. Complete with a fresh, Swedish-inspired look and assembled with premium components throughout, the FE 250 is capable of competing at the highest level of enduro in standard form.
The FE 250 features a bodywork which clearly showcases Husqvarna Motorcycles' progressive approach to offroad motorcycles while the Swedish inspired dark blue and electric yellow graphics create a distinctive look. The ergonomics are specifically tailored to deliver great comfort and control. Adapted after countless hours of testing, the contact points and surfaces in the rider triangle have been repositioned for MY24 to further improve comfort on the motorcycle. A flatter seat profile offers unrestricted movements with a new, high grip cover ensuring riders stay firmly in place under acceleration. Above the side panels, recessed pockets allow for the machine to be lifted and moved, which are particularly beneficial for those competing in extreme enduro events.
The chromium molybdenum steel frame is refined for MY24. A new shock mounting, which is no longer connected to the main tube, significantly improves the anti-squat behaviour of the chassis. With optimised wall thickness in high-stress areas improving reliability, the frame continues to offer advanced geometries and flex characteristics, aimed at providing unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption, and straight-line stability. The frame is complete with a premium metallic blue powder coating with redesigned standard frame protectors offering improved grip in all conditions. Additionally the redesigned and robust skid plate offers exceptional frame and engine protection.
Engineered to ensure class-leading performance and play a vital role in its agile handling characteristics, all major components and shaft arrangements inside the FE 250 engine are carefully positioned closer to the centre of gravity to reduce the effects of rotational inertia. Tilted two degrees backwards to further centralise mass and 8 mm shorter in hight, the 250 cc 4-stroke engine is 100 g lighter for 2024, tipping the scales at just over 27.8 kg.
Each of Husqvarna Motorcycles' enduro machines is now equipped with WP XACT Closed cartridge spring forks. Designed and Developed for the rigours of enduro riding, the fork offers consistent performance thanks to the closed cartridge spring design which optimises oil flow and prevents it from foaming. The addition of a new hydrostop, effective in the last 68 mm of travel, is highly effective on heavy landings to maintain maximum forward momentum. additionally, riders can alter the compression and rebound settings quickly and easily using the tool-free adjusters found at the top and bottom of each fork leg.
The all-new WP XACT rear shock is 100 g lighter and 15 mm shorter than its predecessor, yet the travel remains unchanged at 300mm. With rebound and both high and low speed compression adjustable by hand, setting changes can be achieved quickly and easily without tools. Complete with a CFD optimised shock piston, low friction SKF seals, and a revised linkage system, consistent damping, comfort, and traction is guaranteed.
