Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia will make a number of 2019 FC 450 Rockstar Editions available this April, the manufacturer has confirmed.

Replicating the advanced engine technology used by the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team in their championship-winning machines, the FC 450 Rockstar Edition for 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 anodised 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 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 anodised D.I.D DirtStar rims and anodised 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 bike boasts a carbon fibre reinforced engine protector and a mechanical hole-shot device as standard. Pricing is still to be determined, while more information can be found at
