The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team of Jason Anderson, Zach Osborne, and Dean Wilson will debut Husqvarna’s new 2021 FC 450 Rockstar Edition machine when the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series commences at NRG Stadium in Houston on Saturday, January 16, and continue to pilot it throughout the entirety of the indoor series as well as the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship.

The 2021 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition boasts a number of add-ons over the standard FC 450 including Husqvarna’s new Connectivity Unit, which allows the user to customize the bike’s engine behavior via the myHusqvarna smartphone application. The other more significant differentiation between it and the prior year FC 450 Rockstar Edition is that the MY21 bike comes with a Brembo hydraulic clutch—much like the KTM 450 SX-F and 450 SX-F Factory Edition—instead of the Magura unit found on the standard FC 450.
Additionally, several parts from the Husqvarna Technical Accessories catalog grace the special-edition bike including blue anodized, CNC-machined triple clamps with an adjustable offset of 20mm to 22mm, FMF Racing Factory 4.1 silencer, Rekluse clutch cover, Factory wheelset with D.I.D DirtStar rims, and blue anodized hubs and spoke nipples, Guts Racing seat cover, carbon fiber-reinforced skid plate, holeshot device, and gray ODI lock-on grips which are said to be softer than stock.
Lastly, the frame is powdercoated black instead of blue and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing graphics are applied to the plastics to match the look of the Austrian brand’s Supercross and motocross racebikes. The 2021 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition is available at authorized Husqvarna Motorcycles dealers now for a suggested retail price of $11,399.
