First Look: 2014 Husqvarna range unveiled in Sweden

Brand new KTM-inspired Husqvarna range breaks cover at world launch in Europe.

Husqvarna Motorcycles has officially launched its 2014 motocross and enduro range in Uddevalla, Sweden, today.

In keeping with the brand’s core business, the new Husqvarna model range focuses on off-road competition bikes for both motocross and enduro racing disciplines.

The range underlines the Husqvarna tradition of top quality as expressed in the six new motocross bikes, including an 85cc minicross bike for the youngest riders, and seven enduro models.

Now with the re-launch of the brand, Husqvarna is set to satisfy today’s leading riders in the two racing disciplines by delivering a full range of high performance machines.

Under the ownership of KTM, all Husqvarna motorcycles are manufactured in the production hub of Mattighofen in Austria, a plant considered one of the most advanced in Europe.

All of the 2014 Husqvarna bikes feature a super light chromium molybdenum steel frame with polyamide rear subframe, a completely new innovation for motocross machines.

They all have advanced, fully -djustable WP suspension and are driven by powerful and reliable engines ensuring they are firmly positioned at the top end of the off-road segment.

Two-strokes are a major part of Husqvarna's revamp. Here's the 2014 TC250.

Motocross range
The new Husqvarna range illustrates a loyalty to the popular two-stroke machines in both the TC125 and TC250, plus the 85cc minicross. The range also includes FC250, FC350 and FC450 four-stroke models.

With innovation at the forefront, Husqvarna offers technical details completely new to motocross such as the polyamide rear subframe, which ensures both improved stability and flexibility.

This allows the subframe to spring back into its original position very easily while at the same time offers optimal protection for air filter, battery and electric cables.

Enduro range
For 2014 Husqvarna offers a big range of very competitive two- and four-stroke high-tech enduro bikes.

The TE125, TE250 and TE300 with two-stroke engines goes together with the four stroke FE250, FE350, FE450 and FE501.

All models feature the advanced WP 4CS closed cartridge front fork with four separate chambers, which represents a premium class, front-end suspension system. The enduro range – except the TE125 – feature electric starters.

The rear features an advanced shock with linkage system especially developed for enduro use, which is robust and effective for easy handling over rough terrain and for absorbing big hits. At the same time, the bikes are designed to provide optimal traction over smaller ruts and bumps.

The new 2014 Husqvarnas will be released in Europe from the beginning of November 2013.
