Brand new for the upcoming 2019 Supercross season, Husqvarna has released their FC 450 Rockstar Edition. The new bike has a multitude of revisions compared to the old bike such as a new frame, new engine, and new bodywork! Similar to its KTM 450 SX-F Factory Edition brother, the Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition represents the next generation of Husqvarna off-road motorcycles and gives us a sneak peek of what changes we will see on all of the bikes in the future!
From the Husqvarna Press Release:
Among a series of key engine upgrades, a more compact SOHC cylinder head brings a significant reduction in the external dimensions and the overall weight of the 4-stroke power-plant. Continuing to set the standard in the 450cc class, the engine features an updated cooling system, a Pankl gearbox, and a new exhaust system.
Designed with the goal of offering increased rigidity, the stiffened frame works in collaboration with a 0.5 lb (250g) lighter subframe and a stiffer upper triple clamp. A series of special parts such as a carbon fiber skid plate, a Rekluse billet clutch cover, updated ProTaper handlebars and a standard holeshot device strengthen the link to the team’s factory machines.
Stay tuned for more details and availability on the new FC 450 Rockstar Edition!
