Husqvarna’s new FS450 competition-ready Supermoto machine


NeHusqvarna has just revealed its new FS450 supermoto machine for 2019. It’s a top bit of kit, making the most of the innovative technological evolutions from the 2019 FC450 motocross machine to offer unmatched closed-circuit supermoto performance. It looks awesome, doesn’t it?

It’s lightweight and agile, and features a redesigned chassis and engine, which works to improve handling and usability of power. It’s equipped with a WP 48mm AER air fork at the front, and a WP DCC rear shock at the rear – which works to improves absorption and stability. The 16 mm offset CNC machined triple clamps are also specifically designed to work in harmony with the front forks.

The trademark Husky single-cylinder SOHC powerplant is more compact than ever. At an overall weight of 27.3kg, and offering a peak power output of 63bhp, the new FS 450 engine design brings notable improvements in handling and usability.

Using top-level supermoto competition as a base for development, the FS 450 is equipped with black 16.5” (front) and 17” (rear) Alpina spoked wheels. The high-quality wheels are matched with Bridgestone 125/80 R420 and 165/65 R420 slick tyres for maximum grip, traction and agility.


Basically, if you’re after a top-spec supermoto machine, straight off the showroom floor – the new Husqvarna FS450 is worth checking out…
