I've liked what I've seen so far of that Husaberg. I'm guessing it has a lower COG with that configuration.

The ad says it has 144 hours on it. I ask them to give me a quote online so I'm sure I'll be getting a call next week from them. ;)
COG may be slightly higher than on a traditional 450. Their goal was to bring the center of rotating mass closer to the COG to make a 4 stroke handle more like a two stroke. It worked to a certain extent and I like the bikes. The FE390 is my favorite of the bunch. The bikes are pretty wide between your calves - felt a little funny to me in that respect, but it wouldn't stop me from riding one.
