This is the Husqvarna FR450 Rally that Alexander Smith
rode in the 2016 Dakar Rally, and it’s one of about 40
made. In addition to the factory team, Husqvarna partners
with HT Rally Raid to field what they call a “customer
team.” These riders are supplied with bikes that are almost
equal to those of the factory riders and given full support.

The road book is the rally
rider’s best friend—make that
his only friend.
