Flavor of the Month: 2011 Husaberg FS570

6.7.2019: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Welcome to the next installment of a new RSBFS feature, where we take a once a month trip out of our normal realm and look at some of the other amazing bikes the world has to offer when you leave clip ons and fairings behind. Last month we took a look at a TDR250 and this month we’re kicking things off strong, with a unicorn supermoto from an esoteric Swedish bike maker! -dc

The 2011 Husaberg FS570 graced our shores for just one model year, which is a shame, because it could have left the mark that the likes of the Husqvarna 701 Supermoto did just a few model years later.

The FS570 is essentially a big-bore dirtbike with some suspension tweaks and 17-inch sportbike wheels front and rear clad with sticky Michelin skins. The brakes were by Magura, and featured a four-pot radial caliper up front. The best part of the FS570, clearly, is its chameleon-like ability to be most things to most people, with just a few mods here and there. Granted, nobody is saying a new set of wheels for what was an $11,000 bike when new will be cheap, but it’s certainly more cost effective than buying a similarly high-end dirt bike.

The big ‘Berg made just shy of 60 horsepower if the forums are to be believed (official horsepower ratings are non-existent) out of the 566 cc laid-over thumper. In a chassis that weighed 257 pounds dry, this bike is fully capable of taking it to sport bikes, especially on tighter tracks or canyons. The Husabergs shared WP suspension components with KTM, and the swingarm was the same unit as the one on the KTM 560 SMR. They were initially intended to be the ultra-premium range from the Austrian company, but were eventually let go when Big Orange bought Husqvarna a couple years later. No need for two Swedish dirtbike companies that start with H in your portfolio, it seems.

 

From the seller:

Factory, street legal supermoto, only sold in the US for 1 year, but if you’re looking at this, you probably know all about it. Guaranteed to be the only one around. Stand out from all the other bikes!
-Clean title in hand
-Only 2900 miles
-Oil changed regularly, every few 100 miles or so.
-Valves checked 2 times. Still at factory specs. No adjustment ever needed.
Mods:
-Husaberg Race Map installed by Town & Country Cycle Center in Hamburg NJ
-FMF Powercore 4 slip on
-Upgraded fuel pump from Cycle Works
-Husaberg radiator fan kit
-Zeta handguards with LED turn signals
-SM mirrors
-Seat Concepts seat
Also comes with the original mirrors, exhaust, unmounted new parts include all new factory bodywork & seat, Shinko 705 tires,
& a brand new Fisher seat. (the most comfortable seats made!)

Located in Fairfield, CT. Will accommodate shipping but all associated costs are buyer’s responsibility.

Price: $7,000

With less than 3,000 miles on the dial and a new exhaust, race map and fuel pump, we suspect this thing will pull a little past the factory horsepower ratings. With comfort upgrades like a seat concept seat and Zeta handguards, this thing is as ready for short commutes as it is the track. As a bonus, it comes with all the stock takeoffs. With regular valve checks and oil changes, this bike is ready to make everything else in your garage seem like a compromise.

Yamaberg? Husaha? TZ Framed/Husaberg “Supermono” Single Racer

Yamaberg? Husaha?  TZ Framed/Husaberg “Supermono”  Single Racer

Here is a little gem I found while lurking in the USGPRU Forum.  It’s rare because:  well, there isn’t another one on the planet.  We don’t usually post builds but the stars aligned:  the boss is away drinking margaritas, I like small cc bikes and it looks like a nice build.

Yeah, get naked baby.

Here are some specs on the bike:

CHASSIS:
1991 TZ 250 4DP frame and swing arm
Powder coated black by Powder Tech
SUSPENSION:
Front:
1998 4DP forks rebuilt by Lindemann Racing
BN Lindemann Springs for the forks for a 200lb rider (not installed)
BN fork seals (not installed)
Rear:
Fox Twin clicker (Built for the 4DP)

Motor:

2006 Husqvarna TE 450 Bought from Fast by Ferracci it was never used so the only time on this motor is the dyno pulls.
Custom radiator built by Fluidyne power sports
Carburetor :
Keihn 41mm with TPS
Power now bell mouth
Power Now Power shot
Electronics:
OEM Husky CPU
Vortex Ignition X10 (change maps on the fly)
This bike is electric start and has a new gel cell battery in it
Exhaust:
Custom SS with megaphone

Body:
Airtech: Honda RS250 A kit bodywork

I know the Husaberg engine is no slouch in the woods but an interesting choice for a singles racer.  With Moto3 going to singles I bet we will see more builds like this crop up.  There are already kits out there where you can convert your 450 motorcross bike to a singles racer.

The seller is asking $5,000 for his creation.  You can see the thread about the sell here.  The seller also has a website with more pictures of the build.
