    Fantastic results from all of you in the team! Congratulation! Nice work to once again put Husaberg on the rallye map. Beautiful bikes and a great team spirit from what I´ve heard. :freaky

    Now that is a tough Swedish woman. She doesn't bleed or cry.

    I'm looking at a 2005 FE 650, were they as reliable as the 07's and newer?
    Thanks,

    no, not generally, there were crank end float and main bearing issues, not all but enough to make it a bit of a lottery

    '07 & '08 are the go no issues at all, but a good condition low km '06 would also be fine

    I assume you're referring to only the 650. I have an '05 FE450 that has been as reliable as a hammer. However, when I decided to find a 650 to dual sport, I definitely wanted an '07-'08.

    Any idea when those prototype Aqualine 450/570 tanks might go main stream? I checked their website but did not see any hints.

    Hi Seth,

    Thank you for your enquiry, yes the tanks you have seen for the husaberg will be available shortly, there is a front tank that is 7.6L and a rear tank that is 10L they fit on with the original tank and you can fit one or the other or both. All of the fitting are being finalized at the moment feel free to contact me in a few weeks or keep an eye on our website for updates.

    Regards,
    Nicole

    Love the 'Berg and am waiting to get my hands on an '09 or '10 FE 450. I think the FE 450 has the opportunity now to become one of the hottest Rallye bikes with KTM's support, ASOs rules, and the right gearing.

    I know I'm not the expert, but for an amateur, I don't think the price can be beat, especially if you pick up a couple of KTM 450 EXC motors for spares if the mounts will match up. I haven't looked at that part yet, but I think it might be close.

    Edited for grammar
