Featuring a striking, brand-new look and class-leading performance, Husqvarna Motorcycles is excited to reveal the 2021 FC 450 Rockstar Edition. Used as the starting point for Zach Osborne’s AMA 450MX championship winning Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing machine, the competition-ready motorcycle features numerous upgrades and improvements over the standard FC 450, all designed to further increase its winning potential.

Beneath the updated Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team graphics, the FC 450 Rockstar Edition uses Husqvarna Motorcycles’ lightweight FC 450 chassis, together with the latest WP XACT suspension. Delivering precise handling, the optimised suspension improves rider confidence allowing all racers to master the toughest terrain with conviction.

With a focus on the latest technology and offering fully customisable riding experiences, the fourth generation FC 450 Rockstar Edition comes with Husqvarna Motorcycles’ all-new Connectivity Unit, which together with the myHusqvarna app was launched in October 2020. Fitted to the handlebar pad and controlled with the application, personalised engine maps and fine-tuned suspension settings can be created and stored to provide the ideal set-up for any track or conditions.

Ensuring an uncompromised power delivery from the SOHC 450 cc engine, an upgraded, high-performance Brembo hydraulic clutch system provides perfect action in all conditions, while also delivering exceptional reliability.

Completed with an FMF Racing Factory 4.1 silencer, GUTS Factory high-grip seat cover, Rekluse clutch cover, Factory wheel set, ProTaper handlebars and Factory Racing CNC-machined triple clamps with adjustable offset, the FC 450 Rockstar Edition is built to perform at the highest level, straight out of the showroom.

They look really sweet in person. We just uncrated one this morning.

|

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

its like a little bit of Colby Raha and Zach Osbourne mixed together.

12/2/2020 9:45 AM

Yellow front fender and would look like good old Suzuki´s.

|

12/2/2020 9:45 AM

I dig the black. Are the side number plates continuing to shrink?

|

12/2/2020 9:45 AM

It’s too bad they didn’t put a 16 or 1 on it for Zach

I thought the same thing. Looks like a mix of Raha's bike and a factory team bike.

Too many colors going on. I would have made the rear black. And yes, I dont get the side panels getting smaller and smaller. At what point do we realize they are there for a reason.

its just a 2pc design. the actual overall size of the "background" is the same, just in 2 pc's so your number has a splice in it (if you want it that big), big deal.

That caught my eye too, the lower one looks smaller for sure.

I like that they changed up the look a bit. They were starting to look stale, which is why I changed up the plastic on my own Husky. For me, this Rockstar Edition is maybe a bit much for me, as far as the color theme, but I am not going to complain. At least they tried something different. If I bought one, I'd throw matching yellow plastics on the front (fender and number plate), add my numbers and run it.

Imagine winning an outdoor title and they still pick your teammate's number.

I think the black plastic with the white number background just hides it a bit and tricks your eyes. I had to look closely also but it is the same (I think.)

|

12/2/2020 10:23 AM

I expect everyone that bitched about black plastic on Yamahas to complain about this also...

That is beautiful! Wish it came in a 350 version.

...there has to be a better way to mount the ECU control module, that huge black bar pad ain't so sexy, like a pretty girl with a huge zit on her face...

I agree. It is very odd looking

|

12/2/2020 10:53 AM

That looks solid. It will definitely help them stand out in the paddock this year during SX/MX.

|

12/2/2020 11:06 AM

I bet this thing is gonna look waaay better with the new Rockstar Logo coming out early next year!

|

12/2/2020 11:08 AM

I like it, that's a good look. 🤙

|

12/2/2020 11:10 AM

They look sooooo good after so many years going white

Technically it's a 21.5 model, so I bet the #21 is for Anderson, although they should've used 16 this time, in my opinion.

Nice looking bike

Great looking bike aside from their awful number plates and side panels.
