Great project guys - you're "following" in some esteemed tracks!....




If Annie got to 5305m on Everest on an '82 XL250, wonder what you'll reach on those weapons?

Gearbox Ratio?

Does anyone know if both the FE570 (Enduro) and the FS570 (Supermoto) share the same wide ratio gearbox?

I'm in on this - good luck guys!

Let hope Sherri Jo knows how to make a mean brewski for when you guys have come back down!

Great project and thread! I'm subscribed, and looking forward to reading about your mods and trips. South America sounds like a fun trip! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you guys do to the bikes after that project, to make them more adventure ready.

I sold my 640 Adventure a little while back, and I'm thinking about what to replace it with. The FE570 is high on my list of possibilities.

Thanks for sharing your project!

I'm betting Walter and Lukas are getting heavy garage-time on their belts, hence the silencio. Or is everyone busy F5'ing the Dakar threads for the fortnight?

One thing about the Husabergs where I've thought a possible modification would be welcomed: the seat-to-peg distance seems somewhat cramped on them, for longer dudes especially & prolonged rides. My middle-aged knees are liking the generous Xchallenge ergonomics a lot, but with std Husaberg seat-to-peg ergos, I might need attend some aerobics / zumba classes or whatnot.

Any thoughts on tackling that, or is it not really a problem for you guys..?

I installed a set of Fastway F4 pegs in the low position and added a factory high seat. WOW! What a difference that little 1-1/4" inches make! I also am running a set of Pastrana high bars with a Scotts under bar unit. Pretty comfy for sitting and really good for standing.

Can't wait to see these bikes!

Good Luck Fellas'!

Yeah its cramped compared to the X. In fact I dont know another light bike with the generous spacing of the XC. Even when you ride a F650 single you get that cramped up position.

We also have some fastway pegs on the way for the bergs ... will start posting up about mods shortly. We have a lot of bits coming in.

I will leave most of the modification talking to our inhouse technical guru, LukasM ... who knows his sh1t.

I like to call him "The Technical Director"

This just in: Husaberg messaged me my freshy still Mattighofen boxed bike has shipped and will arrive early next week. I hope it doesn't snow. More than a foot or two anyway. Now I certainly won't sleep. Wondering wondering what will her name be?

Stay tuned.

Well this year was the first time a husaberg finished the Dakar, so I guess thats somekind of proof of quality.

And the actual 450 RR Dakar bike is for sale, so for about €15000 (which is about half of what it costed to build) the well equipped bike can be yours, wtih authentic fesh-fesh in the airfillter and only €12000 for the trainingbike.

For Dakar they ( berglundracing.com ) developed new front- and rear fueltanks, there going to produce and sell these so could be of use for your bikes.

Front tank keeps the weight lower and lets air flow through from the radiator.
