Model Description

MASTERSTROKE

The pinnacle of Husqvarna supermoto competition, the FS 450 uses advanced engineering techniques to not only draw 63 hp from the 450cc motor, but also position the engine closer to the centre of gravity to vastly improve handling and manoeuvrability. The addition of launch control means perfect acceleration off the line, while class-leading ergonomics and traction control keep the rider in full control.

POWERFUL ENGINE

The SOHC cylinder head is incredibly compact and lightweight using a short profile with the camshaft located as close to the center of gravity as possible, significantly improving handling and agility. The lightweight valves are actuated via a rocker arm and feature timing specifically designed to deliver precise levels of torque and throttle response.

GEARBOX

A lightweight 5-speed gearbox produced by PANKL Racing Systems ensures the highest level of durability and reliability. The gear lever also features a unique design that prevents dirt build-up and keeps the lever tip in its original position, even in the toughest conditions, while an advanced gear sensor selects the ideal engine map for each gear.

ANTI HOPPING CLUTCH

The SUTER anti hopping clutch prevents rear wheel instability and hopping when braking hard into the apex of a turn, for maximum control and perfect supermoto-style drifting.

WP XACT SUSPENSION

The WP XACT fork is lightweight and easy to adjust through a single air valve for pre-load, using the supplied fork pump. Compression and rebound fine-tuning is handled by tool-free click adjusters. Together with the fully adjustable WP XACT rear shock, Husqvarna offers superior suspension performance, feeling and comfort.

BRAKES

Exceptional stopping power is guaranteed by Brembo brakes, featuring a 4-piston radially mounted caliper in combination with a 310 mm disc at the front. A single piston caliper and a 220mm disc are fitted to the rear. The perfectly placed controls allow for optimal feel and balance under extreme conditions.
