Husqvarna has unveiled their 2015 lineup, and once again, they’re building street-legal motorcycles.
Before they were purchased by KTM in 2013, Husky was working on an interesting lineup of street-legal bikes, including the Nuda naked bike and the Terra, a 650 dual sport; they also had a few enduros on their lineup with blinkers for the street.
Once KTM bought them, though, their whole lineup was in upheaval, and the street-legal machines were either axed, or returned to their off-road roots. But there must have been a demand for those street-legal enduros, because they’re back for 2015.
Husqvarna’s 2015 lineup for North America includes the FE 350S and FE 501S, both of which are essentially dirt bikes with minimalistic lighting. As is usual with these Euro enduros, they feature top-level performance parts (fork and shock from WP), with some tweaks to compromise between street and dirt. The 350S has a liquid-cooled DOHC four-stroke motor, and the 501S has a liquid-cooled SOHC four-stroke. Other changes include chassis reinforcements, updated plastics and graphics, and a new handlebar and beefed-up handguards.
Other changes to their lineup include updated motocross models (they’re returning to pro motocross and supercross racing), with 14 models in total. Find out more at their website here.
Right now, we don’t have any word on whether or not any of these bikes will be available in Canada.
