2013 Dirt Bikes, ATVs and UTVs Cont.

Husaberg FE 250
Husaberg has a little more presence in the U.S. as of late due to parent company KTM providing more exposure. For 2013 its lineup will include something that was missing last year when it only offered two-stroke models, because in ‘13 Husaberg will offer new four-stroke models. The newest addition to the lineup is the all-new FE 250, which is the first 250cc four-stroke model from the company. The enduro bike features a fuel-injected four-stroke powerplant that mates to a six-speed transmission and features a convenient electric start. The FE 250 features a new chromoly frame, a new swingarm and new bodywork to give the bike a unique look apart from the KTM line. Husaberg will also offer other four-stroke enduro options in the FE line for 2013 that include the FE 350 and the FE 501.

Can-Am Outlander MAX 1000
Can-Am touts that it Outlander 1000 is the most powerful ATV in the industry, so for 2013 when the Outlander MAX was introduced it is now hailed as the most powerful two-up ATV in the industry. Powered by an 82-horsepower twin-cylinder Rotax engine, the MAX is an extra eight inches longer than the one-person Outlander. This was done to more comfortably situate the passenger in front of the rear axle. The rear passenger seat was actually redesigned by Can-Am to feature its Dynamic Passenger Comfort (DPC) that provides more comfort and security for the passenger due to a high back and newly designed handholds that offer more grip options. The MAX 1000 features Fox Air-Controlled Suspsension (ACS) in the rear that can be dialed in to accommodate a passenger or adjusted for when towing heavy loads. It’s always more fun with a friend along, and the Outlander MAX 1000 provides a great option for doing so.
