2016 Husqvarna FC 450

2016 Husqvarna FC 450

The 2016 Husqvarna FC 450 now joins the KTM 450 SX-F as one of the lightest production 450 MX bikes ever, even with electric start! It features a compact and light engine, redesigned Keihin Engine Management System that allows for selectable maps on the handlebar, sits on a lighter chromoly steel frame and stops with the help of the GSK brake rotors. The CNC machined hubs are lighter, and the 2016 Husqvarna FC 450 features the “No Dirt” footpeg design. There are only a few differences between the 2016 Husqvarna and KTM motocross bikes. Husqvarna comes with D.I.D rims, subframe made from composite carbon fiber material instead of aluminum, Magura hydraulic clutch system instead of Brembo and GSK brake disc rotors instead of Galfer. The gas tank is only slightly changed (different plastic) and the handlebars are ProTaper. Check out the 2016 450 Motocross Shootout and see how the 2016 Husqvarna FC 450 fared in the lineup.
