Husqvarna Motorcycles has released its 2020 FC 450 Rockstar Edition, which will serve as the basis of the bikes raced by Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jason Anderson, Zach Osborne, and Dean Wilson in the 2020 AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross series.

Husqvarna has updated the WP Xact air fork to have a longer bypass slot designed to improve initial comfort, while a new oil bypass in the outer damping leg tube is intended to reduce pressure peaks.

Aside from the bevy of aftermarket parts added to the bike, the main mechanical change over the standard FC 450 model is that Husqvarna has updated the WP Xact air fork to have a longer bypass slot designed to improve initial comfort, while a new oil bypass in the outer damping leg tube is intended to reduce pressure peaks. Like the rest of the four-stroke motocross models, the FC 450 Rockstar Edition comes with an optional vented airbox cover for riders looking for a sharper throttle response.

CNC-machined, blue anodized triple clamps with an adjustable offset of 20mm or 22mm, an FMF Factory 4.1 RCT muffler, black anodized D.I.D DirtStar rims with machined, blue anodized hubs, blue spokes, and a three-cross spoke pattern on the front wheel are just a few of the trick components that come on the 2020 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition.

Additional features that come stock on the FC 450 Rockstar Edition are a Rekluse clutch cover, holeshot device, carbon fiber-reinforced skid plate, front disc guard, Guts Racing seat cover, and gray ODI grips that are said to be softer than those that come on the standard FC 450. To further match the look of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing bikes, the frame is powdercoated black and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team graphics have been applied to the plastics as well.
