The FE 501 houses the most powerful engine in the Husqvarna enduro range. With large moving components, vibration is kept to a minimum through a counter balancer shaft while a map select switch changes the power characteristics to best suite riding conditions. High quality finishes and premium components ensure the FE 501 meets the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship.
Delivering the highest level of performance in the Husqvarna enduro line-up, the 510.4cc power plant is more advanced than ever while weighing only 30.1kg.
The compact SOHC cylinder head is designed to offer the 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 very robust rocker arm system.
The crankcases are designed to house the shaft arrangements and internals of the engine in the best possible position, centralising masses for a lightweight handling feel. High-pressure die cast production processes results in a thin but reliable wall thickness and keeping weight to a minimum.
A plain big end bearing comprising of two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 135 hours.
