Husqvarna FX450 2021 Introducing the Husqvarna FX450 2021 Starting From £8,699.00

Husqvarna FX450 2021

Masterstroke

The pinnacle of Husqvarna offroad competition, the FX 450 uses advanced engineering techniques to not only draw 63 hp from the 450cc motor, but also position the engine closer to the centre of gravity to vastly improve handling and manoeuvrability. The addition of launch control means perfect acceleration off the line, while class-leading ergonomics and traction control keep the rider in full control.

From £8,699.00

ENGINE

The SOHC cylinder head is incredibly compact and lightweight using a short profile with the camshaft located as close to the center of gravity as possible, significantly improving handling and agility. The lightweight valves are actuated via a rocker arm and feature timing specifically designed to deliver precise levels of torque and throttle response.

MAP SWITCH

Designed for easy, one-finger operation, the map switch is standard on the FX 450 and serves multiple functions. It allows the riders to easily select between 2 engine maps, activate the launch control or toggle the traction control feature.

ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The KEIHIN EMS is designed to be small, lightweight and fast at processing data. It integrates launch control for perfect starts, selectable engine maps via the switch on the handlebar as well as traction control.

FRAME

The chromium molybdenum steel frame is expertly crafted using laser-cut, robot-welded, hydro-formed tubes, ensuring the highest level of precision and quality. The specifically crafted geometry utilises advanced longitudinal and torsional flex characteristics, for unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption and exceptional straight-line stability. The frame is finished off in a premium blue powder coating with standard frame protectors for superior protection and durability.

COMPOSITE CARBON FIBRE SUBFRAME

The carbon composite subframe is unique to Husqvarna Motorcycles and showcases advanced production technology and innovation. Using 70% polyamide and 30% carbon fibre, the 2-piece subframe has a total weight of just over 1 kg. With the help of computational dynamics, specific rigidity was engineered into the light and robust subframe, delivering outstanding handling and rider comfort.

CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS

The 22 mm offset CNC-machined triple clamps feature an integrated rubber damping system that reduces vibration and increases rider comfort. The triple clamp works in harmony with the front forks, offering superior handling and stability. Additionally, the front number board integrates a triple clamp roost protector.

BODYWORK

Clean, Swedish-inspired design and ergonomics are tailored to deliver exceptional comfort and control, enabling riders to perform at the highest level for extended periods of time. As a result of extensive testing, the slim contact points make shifting between riding positions easier and allow the rider to flow with movement. The flat seat profile, together with the seat cover texture, deliver superior comfort and control in all conditions.

WP XACT FRONT FORK

The 48 mm split air fork features a capsulated air spring and pressurized oil chamber for progressive and consistent damping. Pressure peaks were reduced through extended oil and air bypasses. In combination with a new midvalve damping system, the fork provides exceptional feedback and rider comfort. The setting is easily adjusted via the single air pressure pre-load valve, as well as through easy access click adjusters for compression and rebound. Additionally, the air pump needed to adjust the fork's air pressure is provided as standard.

WHEELS AND TYRES

Made from high-strength alloy rims by D.I.D and featuring CNC-machined hubs, the wheels of the FX 450 are fitted with DUNLOP GEOMAX tyres with proven design for progressive cornering and superior grip on a variety of terrain.
