Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia will release its updated FS 450 supermoto from January in “very limited” numbers, priced from $15,495. 

The track-focussed racer receives a number of upgrades for 2021, including significant suspension enhancements and styling updates, among other changes.

Based on the FC 450 motocross bike, the FS 450 specifically tuned for supermoto competition, drawing power from a 46kW (63hp) SOHC motor, matched with a five-speed Panki Racing Systems gearbox.

For 2021, the FS 450 features WP XACT forks with AER technology and a new mid-valve damping system for more consistent front-end suspension performance, while a new 22 mm diameter front axle and a 7mm reduction in the base offset of the forks is said to sharpen overall agility.

Moreover, Husqvarna says that refinements to the WP XACT rear shock improve rear-end damping performance with new, low-friction linkage seals.

Braking is managed by a four-piston radially mounted Brembo caliper and pump squeezing a 310mm disc, while a single-piston unit grabs a 220mm disc at the rear.

Premium components are found on the competition ready FS 450, like CNC machined triple clamps, Alpina wheels with slick Bridgestone tyres, a carbon fibre subframe and Magura hydraulic clutch.

Other notable features include launch control, as part of the standard traction control system, ProTaper handlebars, as well as a new seat cover for better grip.
