Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to announce the 2022 FC 250 Rockstar Edition and FC 450 Rockstar Edition models. All-new engines and chassis give dedicated and competitive motocross riders the perfect machinery to stay ahead of the competition. Class-leading, dynamic performance delivers instantly accessible power, while advanced ergonomics provide hard-charging riders with complete control in every situation.
The FC 250 Rockstar Edition features a punchy DOHC engine, delivering unrivalled power and torque on demand. With a level of performance that takes it straight to the top of its class, the FC 450 Rockstar Edition is powered by an SOHC unit. Both engines are lightweight and positioned in their frames for optimal mass-centralisation, giving Rockstar Edition riders mastery of their machines, even in the toughest events.
A new, multifunctional map switch allows selection between power delivery modes. It also activates the traction and launch control features, as well as engaging Easy Shift for clutchless upshifts of the revised-ratio five-speed gearboxes in both the FC 250 Rockstar Edition and FC 450 Rockstar Edition.
For 2022, the FC 250 Rockstar Edition and FC 450 Rockstar Edition come with a completely revised chassis, featuring a new hydro-formed chromium molybdenum frame designed for improved anti-squat behaviour under power. The new die-cast aluminium swingarm provides optimal rigidity with low weight. A durable, aluminium-polyamide hybrid subframe is designed for specifically calculated rigidity.
Top-level suspension is supplied by WP. At the front, new XACT 48 mm forks with AER technology provide more progressive damping at the end of the stroke, while the latest XACT rear shock design features tool-free adjustment. Along with the new frame and swingarm, the WP suspension provides race-winning handling.
New bodywork, proudly adorned with the latest Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing graphics, has specifically tailored ergonomics for ease of movement on the motorcycle. This gives riders total confidence to concentrate on racing. Further enhancing their competition-focused build, each Rockstar Edition is equipped with adjustable offset (20 or 22 mm), split-clamp Factory triple clamps, Factory DID DirtStar wheels with black anodised, machined hubs, a Factory starting device, floating front rotor with polyamide composite front brake disc guard, and polyamide composite skid plate.
The FC 250 Rockstar Edition and FC 450 Rockstar Edition replicate the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing motorcycles competing in AMA Supercross, and place the most competitive machinery in the hands of all motocross racers.
