2019 Husqvarna FE 501
Husqvarna’s FE line of dual-sports has been updated for 2019. The FE 501 is shown above.

Husqvarna’s lineup of small-displacement, street-legal dual-sports has been updated for 2019 and includes four models: FE 250, FE 350, FE 450 and FE 501.

All are powered by liquid-cooled, four-stroke singles, ranging from 249.9cc to 511cc, with electric start, fuel injection, a new lithium-ion battery and a 6-speed transmissions with a Magura hydraulic clutch. The entire lineup has a steel double-cradle frame with a carbon fiber-reinforced polyamide subframe and a Pro Taper aluminum handlebar. They also share the same WP Xplor 48 upside-down fork and WP linkage shock with 11.8/13 inches of front/rear travel and revised settings for improved damping, single-disc brakes and DID spoked aluminum rims (21-inch front, 18-inch rear).

  1. Someday manufacturers of adventure & enduro bikes will realize that 35-38″ seat heights are deal killers for many prospective buyers. My 29″ inseam has led to me quickly selling a new Moto Guzzi Stelvio and a new BMW GS-A 1200. If the seat height is more than 29″ I’m not interested.
