2021 HUSQVARNA FC450 FIRST RIDE VIDEO
The 2021 Husqvarna FC450 is officially in the MXA Wrecking Crews hands and in this video, Assistant Editor Josh Mosiman breaks down the details on it and gives his opinion on the bike after day one of testing with Husqvarna. The big update for 2021 came in the suspension department. Instead of going with completely different settings than KTM, the Husky is back to where it was in 2019 with the same settings as its orange brother. However, even though the settings are the same, there have been some big changes to the suspension. For 2021, the Husqvarna has 10mm shorter forks and a 6mm lower shock to bring the overall height of the bike down 10mm front and rear. Husky did this to lower the center of gravity and improve handling. This video was after our first day of testing and this bike has a long ways to go, but we are excited to line it up against the rest of the new 2021 450 models to see how it ranks in MXA’s 2021 450 Shootout.
