Husaberg Motorcycles is known for its racing 4-stroke dirt bikes, like the FE line, but Husaberg also produces Supermoto street bikes like the FS 650E and FS 650C race-only version with electric start.Husaberg was created by Swedish engineers from Husqvarna, after that Swedish brand was sold to Cagiva. The Husaberg brand name was made official when Thomas Gustavsson, head engineer, entered an enduro race and had to declare a make of his prototype motorcycle. The current crop of ‘Bergs continue the racing-born pedigree, though slow sales in recent years caused Husaberg to be purchased by KTM. Husaberg dirt bikes are currently built in Austria but Husaberg’s Motorsport branch remains in their Swedish home land and continues to innovate with radical designs like the new FE 390 enduro.
Husaberg is slated to be absorbed into Husqvarna in 2015, but for now we've put the 2014 Husaberg FE250 up against the current crop of 250cc enduro bikes.
