How much power does Husky’s all-new 350cc four-stroke motocross bike make?
Husqvarna made huge changes to its motocross and off-road competition bikes for 2023. And while we got a preview of this year’s 250cc and 450cc four-stroke models with the ‘22 FC 250 Rockstar Edition and ‘22 FC 450 Rockstar Edition, the ‘23 FC 350 is the first mid-displacement four-stroke motocross model with Husqvarna’s new-generation engine and chassis.
When run on our in-house Dynojet 250i rear-wheel dynamometer, the FC 350 produced 51.2 hp at 11,400 rpm and 27.0 lb.-ft. of torque at 8,900 rpm. That’s an increase of 0.8 hp and 1.1 lb.-ft. of torque at peak over the 2022 KTM 350 SX-F, which already made more hp than one particular motocross bike with a 100cc displacement advantage.
