All-new for 2023, the Husqvarna FS 450 supermoto is expected to arrive in Australia from October in very limited numbers.
Finished with new bodywork and improved ergonomics for 2023, the FS 450 runs white and grey graphics for a distinctive look. We think you will agree that it looks sensational.
Powered by a new 450 cc SOHC 4-stroke engine, the performance characteristics of the FS 450 can be fine-tuned using the updated map select switch mounted on the ProTaper handlebars. This device allows for full customisation of the machine as it controls the activation of launch control, traction control, and the new quick-shifter, for seamless upshifts.
A new hydro-formed frame enhances rider feedback with the new polyamide-reinforced aluminium sub-frame playing a role in aiding handling and ensuring comfort, together with the latest WP suspension and a repositioned engine that improves mass centralisation.
Supermoto-specific hardware include Alpina wheels, a Suter anti-hopping clutch, and high performance Brembo brakes.
