2019 Husqvarna FC450 Rockstar Edition

7 months ago | Words: Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia

Husqvarna Motorcycles are set to launch the 2019 FC450 Rockstar Edition, a thrilling new production model that forms the basis of the bikes to be used by Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s AMA Supercross Champions, Jason Anderson and Zach Osborne throughout the 2019 season.

Collecting feedback from the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team and their championship-winning riders, Husqvarna Motorcycles engineers have combined this competition data with extensive testing and development to introduce a list of vital upgrades. The new FC450 Rockstar Edition features the latest in engine and chassis developments, ensuring this state-of-the-art machine offers unrivalled on-track performance. Produced in limited numbers, the all-new FC450 Rockstar Edition will be available worldwide from January onwards.

Replicating the advanced engine technology used by the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team in their championship-winning machines, the FC450 Rockstar Edition model year 2019 features a new CP forged box-in-box piston and a new Pankl conrod. Providing reduced friction, the new piston and conrod ensure the SOHC engine continues to offer the highest level of performance and reliability available in the market today. The all-new machine features FMF Racing’s Factory 4.1 RCT silencer. The new exhaust system has a blue anodized titanium body and a carbon end cap. In addition, it offers a shorter overall length that makes it less susceptible to damage. Moving the silencer closer to the engine also aids mass centralisation.

Made from high-grade aluminium, the all-new CNC-machined triple clamps feature optimally tuned steering stem stiffness as well as the perfect alignment of the fork tubes for highly responsive and smooth fork action. Maximum gains in handling are provided by easy offset adjustment between 20 or 22 mm. The list of upgrades is completed with a new set of anodized D.I.D DirtStar rims and anodized machined hubs. Offering maximum weight savings, this premium-quality combination ensures maximum strength and reduced weight. Tailored to the needs of every aspiring motocross racer, the new FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION features a carbon fibre reinforced engine protector and a mechanical holeshot device as standard.
