Features and Benefits
The SOHC engine is the
perfect example of the advanced engineering techniques used by
Husqvarna motorcycles. The 450cc offers a peak power of 63 hp at
an overall weight of just 27.8kg. Mass-centralization is key in
the engine design, enabling chassis engineers to position the
engine closer to the centre of gravity for greatly improved
handling and maneuverability.
The lightweight 5-speed gearbox
has a low-friction coating on the shifting fork guaranteeing
smooth and precise shifting. The gear lever features a design
that prevents dirt build-up and keeps the lever tip in its
original position in even the toughest conditions while an
advanced gear sensor allows for specific engine maps tailored
for each gear.
With years of experience in
designing the most advanced steel frames in offroad, the
engineers in Research and Development designed a chromium
molybdenum steel frame that redefines every structural aspect
that benefits handling, ergonomics and packaging. With carefully
calculated tortional and longitudinal flex, the frame works in
harmony with the suspension to offer sharp handling and superior
comfort. These characteristics, matched to a lightweight and
compact engine design, offer exceptional handling precision
while at the same time increasing bump-absorption and feeling.
|Carbon Fiber Subframe
The use of carbon fibre
strips away weight, improving weight distribution and bringing
weight closer to the centre of gravity for precise handling. The
composition of the material is 30% carbon fibre and the overall
3-piece construction is remarkably light but also very strong
for an overall weight of 1.4 kg. Additionally, a specific
rigidity has been calculated in the component for optimal
handling and rider ergonomics.
The inertia produced by
the crankshaft has been carefully calculated to deliver optimal
traction and ride-ability from the powerful 450cc plant.
Perfectly positioned, the component harnesses the rotating mass
at the ideal centre of gravity resulting in a lightweight and
agile handling feel. A plain big end bearing comprising of two
force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and
durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 100 hours.
|CNC Machined Triple Clamps
The black-anodized CNC
machined triple clamps feature a rubber damping system that
reduces vibration, increasing comfort. Additionally, the triple
clamps have been meticulously designed to evenly distribute the
clamping force on the fork leg, maximizing contact area for
optimal sensitivity and minimum friction.
|Magura Hydraulic Clutch
The high quality
German-made Magura clutch system guarantees even wear, almost
maintenance-free operation and perfect modulation in every
condition. This means that play is constantly compensated so
that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain
identical in cold or hot conditions, as well as over time.
The FC 450 features a DDS
(Dampened Diaphragm Steel) clutch . The exclusive
characteristics of this system include a single diaphragm steel
pressure plate instead of traditional coil springs and
integrates a damping system for increased traction and
durability. The clutch basket is a single-piece CNC machined
steel component that allows the use of thin steel liners and
contributes to the compact design of the engine.
Modern and functional bodywork
with traditional Husqvarna blue and yellow accents mark a
simplistic yet stylish Swedish design. The ergonomics have been
specifically tailored to deliver high levels of comfort and
control, enabling riders to perform at their peak for extended
periods of time. The high grip seat cover keeps the rider
positioned under hard acceleration or in slippery conditions.
|WP AER 48 Suspension
The WP AER 48 is a new milestone
in the development of Husqvarna motocross models. It is simple,
lightweight and easy to adjust through a single air valve and
supplied fork pump for pre-load and click adjusters for
compression and rebound. The system is made up of a set of
split-system forks consisting of an air suspension unit and a
hydraulic damping unit.
|Wheels and Tires
alloy rims by DID are coupled to CNC machined hubs using
lightweight spokes and silver anodized aluminum nipples. Fitted
are Dunlop MX 3S Motocross tires that feature the proven
“block-within-a-block” design for more progressive cornering and
Optimized for easy
operation, the map switch selects between two engine maps,
operates launch control and activates a traction control
feature. Traction control works by analyzing throttle input from
the rider and the rate at which the RPM increases. If the RPM
increases too quickly, the EMS will register a loss of grip and
reduce the amount of power to the rear wheel ensuring maximum
|Engine Management System
The Keihin EMS is specifically
designed to be smaller, lighter and faster at processing data.
It integrates launch control for perfect starts, selectable
engine maps as well as traction control. Additionally, via a
gear sensor, the EMS selects a power delivery tailored for each
|44 mm Throttle Body
The FC 450 features a 44
mm Keihin throttle body. The injector is positioned to ensure
the most efficient flow of fuel into the combustion chamber
while, in an effort to ensure optimal throttle response, the
throttle cable is mounted directly without a throttle linkage
providing more immediate throttle response and feeling.
|Electric Start and Li-Ion Battery Along
with the benefit of easy starting, the standard electric
starting system is combined with a new compact Li-Ion battery
which is 1 kg lighter than a conventional battery.
