MXA’S FIRST RIDE VIDEO: 2020-1/2 HUSQVARNA FC450 ROCKSTAR EDITION DIRT BIKE
For this First Ride video the MXA wrecking crew went to our local stomping grounds, Glen Helen Raceway to test out the new 2020-1/2 Husqvarna FC450 Rockstar Edition. The Husqvarna Rockstar Edition and KTM Factory Editions are always a sneak peaks into the future model year for Husqvarna and KTM. Husqvarna made mapping and suspension changes for added comfort on this bike and more pep in the bottom end of the motorcycle. Everyone asked for more aggressive mapping and we got it with Map 2 on this 2020-1/2 FC450. The real question is, will these technical changes plus all the fancy Rockstar Edition aftermarket parts (muffler, clamps, hubs, etc) add up to a better motorcycle than the 2020 FC450? In this video we break down our initial impressions on the bike after riding it all day at Glen Helen. To get the complete lowdown on this bike, check out our race test in a future issue of Motocross Action Magazine.
