Remaining committed to innovative product development, Husqvarna Motorcycles have used top-level competition as its base for the development of the new FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION. Offering a series of major engine and chassis advances, this special motorcycle ideally matches a clean and unique design with outstanding on-track performance.
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.
With redesigned bodywork taking design and functionality to a new level, the FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION combines race-winning performance with unique aesthetics straight out of the showroom.
The all-new FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION will be available from February 2018 solely in North America.
