The most powerful engine in the Husqvarna Motorcycles FE line-up, the 510.9 cc power plant is more advanced than ever while only weighing 29.4 kg. Delivering colossal performance in all conditions, the FE 501 can be controlled using a number of advanced electronic rider aids such as traction control while a handlebar-mounted map select switch alters power delivery to suit terrain and skill levels.
The chromium molybdenum steel frame is expertly crafted using laser-cut, robot-welded, hydro-formed tubes, ensuring the highest level of precision and quality. The specifically crafted geometry utilises advanced longitudinal and torsional flex characteristics, for unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption and exceptional straight-line stability. The cylinder head mountings are made of forged aluminium, improving handling and comfort. The premium grey powder coated frame features standard frame protectors, providing extra durability.
WP XPLOR FRONT FORK
The WP XPLOR 48 front fork is designed specifically for enduro riding. Its open cartridge layout has a spring in each leg with split damping functions. Compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right. Adjustment is via easy-to-access clickers (30 clicks) on the top of each fork leg. The standard preload adjusters allow for easier adjustment without the use of tools. The fork's mid-valve piston delivers consistent damping, while the setting allows the fork to operate higher in the stroke for exceptional rider feedback and bottoming resistance. A new oil bypass in the outer tube reduces friction for a smoother, consistent travel through the stroke and a revised cartridge joint offers added damping performance.
MAP SWITCH CONTROL AND TRACTION CONTROL
Designed for easy operation, the standard map switch selects between 2 EFI maps and activates the traction control feature. The TC (Traction Control) feature improves control on slick terrain. Traction Control can be switched on or off from the map switch. It functions by analysing throttle input from the rider and the rate at which the engine RPM increases. If the RPM increases too quickly, the EMS registers a loss of grip and reduces the amount of power to the rear wheel, ensuring maximum traction.
