The 450cc engine is housed in a new lightweight chromoly frame that has been developed by WP with calculated parameters of longitudinal and torsional flex with the rear subframe being uniquely constructed using 30% carbon fibre for reduced weight and increased strength.
The bike has a launch control feature that can be accessed from a switch on the handlebars, which is also used to change the engine map. Helping deliver the power of the machine is a 44mm Keihin throttle body.
Finally, complementing the updates comes a new graphic design for the motorcycle.
The FS 450 will be available from July, contact your nearest Husqvarna dealership for more information.
