FC450 ROCKSTAR EDITION FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Engine

The FC450 Rockstar Edition’s SOHC engine is the perfect example of the advanced engineering techniques used by Husqvarna Motorcycles, offering massive peak power with an overall weight of just 59 pounds (26.8 kg), equaling a weight reduction of approximately 300 grams compared to the previous generation.

Mass centralization is key to the engine design, enabling chassis engineers to position the engine closer to the center of gravity for greatly improved handling and maneuverability. This was achieved by tilting the engine 2° backwards which meant positioning the sprocket 3 mm lower. Together with the benefits of mass centralization and reduced weight, the anti-squat behavior of the chassis was significantly improved.

Attention was paid to the serviceability of the new FC450 Rockstar Edition engine. Drain bosses for fluids and added service markers on the engine (▲) clearly show where to use washers, making maintenance and service easier than before.

  • Engine tilted 2° backwards with repositioned sprocket (3mm lower) → improved mass centralization and improved anti-squat behavior
  • Peak performance and minimal weight → added midrange and improved handling
