Husqvarna Announces FE Dual Sport Range Updates For 2022

The FE 350s and FE 501s get suspension tweaks, new brakes and other refinements!

Published on 05.13.2021

Husqvarna Motorcycles has officially announced its FE dual-sport range including upcoming changes for 2022. With their competition-bred chassis and class-leading power-to-weight ratios, the Husqvarna FE 350s and FE 501s dual sport models are known for their cutting-edge off-road capability. Now the lineup of lightweight, street-legal 4-strokes gets a host of upgrades for 2022 to make them even more capable of conquering all types of terrain. 

Revisions to the damping and action of the WP XPLOR forks and XACT rear shock let riders make the most of the torque and power. The revised suspension works in conjunction with the chromium-molybdenum steel frame – designed to deliver precise flex and progressive bodywork – as well as the 2-piece carbon composite subframe to provide consistent damping, exact handling and unmatched rider comfort.

New models will now come with a BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch system that offers light action, great progression and consistently reliable performance. The hydraulic system is also self-adjusting and almost maintenance-free. Furthermore, the new BRAKTEC brakes offer powerful stopping with outstanding sensitivity and modulation in conjunction with the GSK wave discs. 


For those looking to begin their off-road ride directly from home, without trailering their bike, the FE 350s and FE 501s dual-sport models take the best from the off-road FE platforms to deliver high performance in the dirt, while still being legal on the street. Continental TKC 80 tires keep everything rolling on a variety of terrain by providing a proven mix of off-road and street performance.

In addition to technical updates, Husqvarna Motorcycles has also paid attention to aesthetics with new colors, trims and graphics, bringing additional style to the Swedish-inspired design. A new seat cover blends in with the updated design without compromising on rider comfort or control. 

New for 2022

  • New BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch system – perfect modulation and reliable performance in all conditions.
  • New BRAKTEC brake system and high-performance GSK discs – superior stopping power with outstanding sensitivity and modulation.
  • Revised suspension settings for improved performance and rider feedback.
  • Oil bypass in the outer fork tubes reduces friction for smooth, consistent travel through the stroke and a revised cartridge joint offers added damping performance.
  • Revised shock valve seals with reduced hardness (Model Year 21 = 90 Shore / Model Year 22 = 70 Shore) offer improved feedback and consistent damping performance.
  • New colors, trims and graphics with rugged grey and electric yellow accents are a distinctive and stylish adornment for the Swedish-inspired design.

The 2022 dual-sport models will be available at all authorized Husqvarna Motorcycles dealers from May 2021 onward. More details for MY22 Husqvarna Motorcycles FE 350s and FE 501s can be found at

Any news on some new Norden models? How about about an updated 701LR model?

Still with the itty bitty fuel tanks. I almost made a deal for a KTM 250 with the stipulation the dealer would install an aftermarket tank at no extra cost. My reasoning being that I shouldn’t have to pay extra for a reasonable fuel range on street legal motorcycle. He accepted the argument and agreed that if I bought the bike the dealership would throw in a larger tank and install it all for free. Unfortunately the owner of the business said no so I backed away from the bike.
