Husaberg FE550

Husaberg FE550 review

So here is the Husaberg FE550, standing in front of me in all its glory. This is the result of a bunch of Swedish exHusqvarna employees starting up a small company in 1987 after the Italians bought their brand. It was a lighter weight and more-aggressive 4-stroke than anyone thought possible, and definitely an eyeopener to the Japanese manufacturers at the time, with their aircooled XRs, DRs and TTs. The Husaberg FE550 wasn't conventional, and much of that uniqueness still lives on today.

Truth be told, there was a reason KTM bought the brand just before building its Racing Four Stroke. And now Husabergs are built in the same factory as KTMs, though the technical development still takes place in Sweden. Perfect bikes for fast trail riding and simple in use. With a smaller fuel tank it would work well in a motocross setting. Once the sag is set the stock setting work very well for tough gnarly sections as well as sandy sweepers. The motor is the best 4-stroke ever designed. It is capable of any input  and its power is unlimited. More specs and user manual of Husaberg FE550 you can see in next overview.
