There’s a mild hysteria surrounding Husqvarna right now. Since the company’s adoption and reemergence under the care of
KTM, Husqvarna has sold more motorcycles than in any period
since the 1980s. Husky has won races, earned championships and
been in the limelight on the world stage for over two years.
It’s not just hype. The 2016 Husqvarna FC450 is the newest and
most heavily redesigned dirt bike of 2016. No other motorcycle has
so many new parts, so much new engineering and such a new persona. Detractors like to dismissively say it’s just like the new KTM
450SX-F, but the truth is the Husky looks different, acts differently
and goes one step farther into the future than the KTM.
Husky mania shifts into high gear
