Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition arrives in April | News
Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia has confirmed the 2019 FC 450 Rockstar Edition will arrive in April with a recommended retail price of $14,995.
The FC 450 Rockstar is based upon the title-winning factory race bike of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s current AMA Supercross Champion Jason Anderson.
Featuring bodywork and graphics to provide a factory appearance, the 2019 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition SOHC engine package is enhanced by a new CP forged box-in-box piston and Pankl con-rod.
An FMF Racing Factory 4.1 RCT silencer has been fitted, including a blue anodised titanium body and carbon end-cap. It’s shorter than the base production model’s exhaust, aiding to mass centralisation and reducing chances of damage. CNC-machined triple clamps are made from high-grade aluminium. The off-set can be easily adjusted between 20mm or 22mm.
In addition, the hydro-formed frame has a black powder-coating, as well as anodised D.I.D DirtStar rims and machined hubs that offer maximum weight savings and strength. The 2019 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition also has a carbon-fibre reinforced engine protector, mechanical hole-shot device and a front brake disc protector fitted as standard.
These features come on top of the usual Husqvarna FC 450 features, which include a composite two-piece sub-frame design, fully-adjustable 48mm WP split air fork, WP rear shock absorber, ProTaper handlebars, precise Magura hydraulic clutch system, selectable map switch that activates launch and traction control, electric starter powered by a lightweight Li-Ion 2.0 Ah battery and the potent Brembo braking package.
The 2019 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition will be available from April through the Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia dealer network, with a recommended retail price of $14,995.
