The FE 450 features class leading technology and premium components standard. The chromium molybdenum frame is expertly crafted to offer the ideal flex while the powerful engine features shaft arrangements aimed at improving mass centralisation and handling. Combined with traction control, WP suspension and enduro specific rear linkage, the FE 450 holds no compromise in pure enduro performance and quality.
Weighing only 29.7 kg, the 450cc engine is not only light and compact but features the latest technology available offering unequalled performance, ride-ability and reliability in its class. Additionally, the engine is suited specifically for enduro type riding with a standard electric start, 6 speed wide ratio gearbox and an array of electronic rider aids.
The lightweight aluminium cylinder features a 95 mm bore and a lightweight Koenig bridge-box-type piston. This combination produces very little oscillating mass significantly reducing vibration and increasing rider comfort.
The compact SOHC cylinder head offers maximum performance at the minimum possible weight. The camshaft actuates four lightweight valves (titanium intake Ø=40mm 32.6g, steel exhaust Ø=33mm 42.6g) through a robust rocker arm system
A plain big end bearing comprising of two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 135 hours.
