Husqvarna uses an FC350 motocross engine, even though
the bike is referred to as the offroad-specific FE350. Why?
Husqvarna doesn’t sell the FC350 in the United States. Since
EnduroCross doesn’t have a homologation rule, Husqvarna can
use the KTM Factory Services engine work. Husky also provides
a 42mm throttle body (the stocker is 44mm).
Mike Brown runs stiff fork settings that would normally be
used in motocross, because he rides with such speed and
aggression that he needs forks capable of sustaining big
impacts. The 48mm WP factory forks are Pro-level only.
Logs and rocks are no match for the
hybrid FE350. A snappy engine, coupled
with stout suspension and a lightweight
chassis, resulted in a bike that a Pro-level
EnduroCross rider could use to the
fullest. This bike wasn’t for the faint of
heart or those short on skill.
