Redefining the boundaries
The FE 450 features class leading power, technology and premium components standard. The chromium molybdenum frame is a stand out feature and is expertly crafted to offer the ideal combination of precision and agility out on the ride. The refined and powerful engine features shaft arrangements aimed at improving mass centralisation and handling. Together with innovative electronics, WP suspension and an enduro specific rear linkage, the FE 450 pushes the boundaries of progression to a whole new level.
Weighing in at only 29.2 kg, the engine in the FE450 engine is not only lightweight, but also features the latest technology available. This results in unequalled performance, ride-ability and reliability in its class. Additionally, the engine is suited specifically for enduro-type riding with an electric start, 6 speed wide ratio gearbox and an array of electronic rider aids as standard.
The chromium molybdenum steel frame is expertly crafted using laser-cut, robot-welded, hydro-formed tubes, ensuring the highest level of precision and quality. The specifically crafted geometry utilises advanced longitudinal and torsional flex characteristics, for unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption and exceptional straight-line stability. The cylinder head mountings are made of forged aluminium, improving handling and comfort. The premium blue powder coated frame features standard frame protectors, providing extra durability.
The WP XPLOR 48 front fork is designed specifically for enduro riding. Its open cartridge layout has a spring in each leg with split damping functions. Compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right. Adjustment is via easy-to-access clickers (30 clicks) on the top of each fork leg. The standard preload adjusters allow for easier adjustment without the use of tools. The fork's mid-valve piston delivers consistent damping, while the setting allows the fork to operate higher in the stroke for exceptional rider feedback and bottoming resistance.
Designed for easy operation, the standard map switch selects between 2 EFI maps and activates the traction control feature. The TC (Traction Control) feature improves control on slick terrain. Traction Control can be switched on or off from the map switch. It functions by analysing throttle input from the rider and the rate at which the engine RPM increases. If the RPM increases too quickly, the EMS registers a loss of grip and reduces the amount of power to the rear wheel, ensuring maximum traction.
