Saltire Husqvarna



Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to announce the new FC 450 Rockstar Edition. A proven model that is continually evolving, the latest version is enhanced by a selection of race-tested components to provide all motocross riders with a competitive edge.

The latest factory team replica machine is equipped with a new silencer, wheels, protective parts and revised suspension settings, which give riders of all abilities a definitive on-track advantage. Retaining its class-leading performance, the FC 450 Rockstar Edition is finished with the latest Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing graphics.

Revised shim stack settings inside the WP XACT 48 mm front forks and XACT rear shock enhance the balance of the FC 450 Rockstar Edition to ensure improved stability at high speed without effecting its proven cornering agility. This considered refinement boosts self-confidence, allowing all levels of riders to master the racetrack with complete confidence while consistently posting faster lap times. 

All riders can easily customise how the 450cc SOHC engine performs depending on either their preference or track conditions by using the handlebar-mounted Map Select Switch. The intuitive, multifunctional instrument houses clearly marked buttons to engage one of two pre-set engine maps, activate launch control and traction control, and enable Quickshifter for seamless upshifts, even when under heavy load. 

The FC 450 Rockstar Edition is expertly assembled and comes complete with an extended list of competition-focused Technical Accessories. Adjustable Factory Racing triple clamps, an FMF Racing Factory 4.1 silencer, and Factory Racing wheels headline the hardware with a Factory Start device, GUTS Racing high-grip seat cover, ProTaper handlebar and soft ODI grips offering assured comfort and control.
