2020 The Husky FS 450
While talking about the dirt bike, the ultra-light FS 450 shares much of its tech with Huskvarna’s FC 450 motocross. On the other hand, the brakes are handled by a single 310mm front disc with radial-mount, four-piston Brembo caliper. The bike also has a 220mm disc with single piston caliper at the rear.
While talking about other aspects, the high-spec gear continues with CNC-machined triple clamps, Alpina spoked rims shod with Bridgestone racing slicks, and a Magura hydraulic clutch.
The 2020 machine remains at a claimed 63hp and 220 lbs without fuel. The FS 450 runs traction and launch control, as well as multiple engine mode maps to help keep it as controllable as possible. Besides that, the electronics on the Husqvarna FS 450 remain crude by street bike standards, but still impress in the off-road world with the factory-installed launch control and basic traction control as part of the machine.
The other most important feature for the dirt bikes is the suspension, the suspension components have been changed though, with 48mm WP XACT forks now replacing the 48mm AER unit. Besides that an XACT shock from WP completes the setup as well. Not only that, the company added Alpina wheels with, 16.5″ up front, with 17″ in the rear. Despite that the Bridgestone tires come fitted from the factory. So, the 2020 bike comes with a blacked out exhaust can, while the blue frame color continues on for another year.
