New commitment to service / warranty.

the most important step in the direction has come with an of the normal 3 month warranty out to 12 Husaberg now offers a better than bikes like its KTM (3 months) and Yamaha’s WR models.

management claim that are now totally committed to after service and support, an area the brand has been lacking in years.

Perhaps even important for customer satisfaction is all 2003 Husaberg machines are put an extensive pre-delivery regimen at the WA national distribution centre, being sent on to dealers.

like your new bike oil the first week you get it, this new of doing things hopes to such happenings.

Husaberg claim to be working hard to a large stock of components and items are always available and at their Australian distribution I was impressed with my walk their facility, the manager I to impressed with his common approach to how he aims to improve the of the brand.

Husaberg — History

The brand came about a group of Husqvarna engineers away from Husky to their own machines.

They had success in European racing and started producing machines for They were then in to the KTM fold to help them Husaberg further.

In recent KTM has learnt many lessons in of quality control and parts and this is where the benefits for will show through. But company’s products will totally separate.

Now to the bike

I covered over 600km one of Husaberg’s FE501 machines.

For review I sampled the model some optional ‘SuperMoto’ including polished 17” rims with Michelin Sport rubber. An impressive Inox floating front disc with Beringer four-piston was also an optional extra to the machine.

The FE501 retails for $12,595, the road wheels and are available separately but will add $3000 to the cost of the machine. But you have a road bike and MX in one, you only need to the wheels over depending on you plan to get up to over the coming

The brake is powerful and does not The disc rotor is fully-floating, and robust. Effort through the is moderate and feel is quite

Combine the impressive braking with the motocross based and it is easy to see that in Supermoto the machine would benefit some stiffer springs in the along with a reduction in Husaberg can supply off-the-shelf to make this simple a fuss free affair.

The forks held things a little when braking Also on the exit of fast when carrying good speed the forks were to ‘pattering’ a little. We were pretty excited on the machine and circulating the Wanneroo short-circuit in 61 seconds.

However, the rear was impressive in Supermoto trim. The PDS shock behaved extremely and did not suffer from excessive or instability, common on such when road rubber is You would have to be getting serious at the track before any to the rear shock were

The 501cc engine is really off the bottom. Surprisingly, it is also smooth running thanks to a running off the crankshaft. We ran it up on the dyno at Cycles and saw that it pretty matched the renowned master of grunt, KTM’s 520 EXC, the whole rev range. (Click for dyno charts).

The more among you may have noticed is no airbox visible on the machine. is because the 40mm Dellorto breathes through the frame. The sits atop the backbone of the just under the fuel

The air is then passed through the to the carburettor.

Electric start is a kick-starter is also fitted. most of the more competition-based the electric start is handy, but always be relied upon. it was more reliable than of the European dirt machines I sampled, it worked all but a couple of

However, it must be said as I got more accustomed to the machine became much easier, as is with a dirt based

The kick-starter is on the left-hand side of the and is aided by an automatic decompressor. A mounted decompression lever helps should everything fail.

The choke is out of the way under the of the machine. It is operated by pulling and twisting rather than the pull in/out type You have no hope of operating it on the luckily it is only needed to the beast from very and can be disengaged immediately after

The standard muffler is easily and provides one of the nicest four-… notes I have heard. In guise it is not overly loud but it have enough bark to aural appeal when up it’.

On the move the six-speed is a gem, clutchless upshifts are smooth and positive. However neutral can sometimes be a little

The 9-litre fuel tank is by Acerbis and has a fuel tap on either of the machine. A reserve position is on the taps but as I found out to my cost, it is more for show than There is actually no reserve in the tank. Thanks to the kind who gave me a lift to the service

Fuel range is less 100km in most conditions.

components abound including tapered bars, CrMo 48mm USP WP forks, WP PDS shock and master cylinders/levers etc. detail shots at bottom of — click them to Unnecessary extras are kept to a so the machine can tip the scales at a fraction 110kg dry.

The dash is and comprehensive. It offers many such as tripmeters and countdown to aid enduro navigation and also an onboard lap timer function. The to operate the unit are on the left see picture at bottom of page.

On the bar is another switch that the rider to switch between two maps as conditions change.

In SuperMoto trim the machine is an hoot on the street. Every has you begging to throw the machine in and self-control becomes a premium I didn’t really want to it back after my 600km with the bike.

But I think my is more safe for it.

Down the we also hope to review the 501 as it comes out of the box in the conventional enduro Husaberg also sell a to go SuperMoto model called the
