The 2018 FE 250 will comprise the majority of the demo fleet at Babes In The Dirt. FE models are dual-sport motorcycles, dual-sports are capable off-road bikes that are plated and ready for the road. The engines are second to none in terms of overall performance and versatility making the bike accessible to both novice and experienced riders. These models will be lowered by shortening the Rear Shock 12mm, which lowers the seat height from 38.19'' to roughly 36''. The forks are then raised in the triple clamps balancing out the front and rear of the bike.

Featuring seven updated models and an all-new TC 85, Husqvarna Motorcycles 2018 motocross range combines cutting-edge technology with high-end componts to offer riders of all ages and riding levels one of the most efficient and sophisticated motocross line ups on the market.
