Swapmoto Live Podcast | 2020 Husqvarna FC 450 First Impression

It’s almost unbelievable that it is mid-June and we just took delivery of our first 2020 motocross bike. The new Husqvarna FC 450 is based on last year’s 2019.5 Rockstar Energy Edition, but it has several notable refinements in the engine mapping and suspension departments. Test rider Pat Foster put the bike through its paces alone today as swap is battling the flu, but hear his first impressions in this quick podcast!

    I’ve loved these bikes for many years. The steal frames are amazing. There is a reason both ktm and husky are doing well.
