A new SOHC cylinder head makes for a more compact design, while being 15 mm lower and 500 g lighter. As a result, the camshaft is now closer to the centre of gravity, significantly improving handling while shorter valve timing improves bottom end performance and responsiveness from the 63 hp powerplant.
A new lightweight 5-speed gearbox produced by PANKL Racing Systems ensures the highest level of durability and reliability. The gear lever also features a unique design that prevents dirt build-up and keeps the lever tip in its original position, even in the toughest conditions, while an advanced gear sensor selects the ideal engine map for each gear.
Hydroformed, laser cut and robot-welded, the frames featured in Husqvarna Motorcycles are expertly engineered with calculated parameters of flex. As such, the frame features an increase in longitudinal rigidity resulting in improved rider feedback, energy absorption and straight-line stability. Additionally, the 4-stroke frame now features new brackets for mounting the skid plate available in the accessories catalogue.
The composite subframe is a design unique to Husqvarna Motorcycles, which showcases pioneering technologies and innovation. Using 70% polyamide and 30% carbon fibre, the new 2-piece subframe design saves 250 g for a total weight at just over 1 kg. Apart from being robust, specific care is taken to create the perfect rigidity for optimal handling and rider comfort.
The crankshaft is specifically positioned to harness the rotating mass in the ideal centre of gravity resulting in a lightweight and agile handling feel. As such, the inertia produced by the crankshaft is carefully calculated to deliver optimal traction and rideability from the powerful 450cc plant. A plain big end bearing comprising of two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 100 hours.
CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS
Due to the increased longitudinal rigidity of the main frame, the 16mm offset cnc machined upper triple clamp is now stiffer and works in harmony with the front forks, offering superior handling and stability. A 3-way handlebar adjustment is standard and allows for customisable ergonomics.
MAGURA HYDRAULIC CLUTCH
The reliable, high quality, German-made clutch system guarantees even wear, near maintenance-free operation and perfect modulation in every condition. Meaning that play is constantly compensated so that the pressure point and function of the clutch remain identical in hot or cold conditions, as well as over time.
ANTI HOPPING CLUTCH
The SUTER anti hopping clutch prevents rear wheel instability and hopping when braking hard into the apex of a turn, for maximum control and perfect supermoto-style drifting.
