Detailed: 2024 Husqvarna FC Rockstar Edition range

Advanced new FC 450 and FC 250 models revealed for next year.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders will be equipped with an all-new 2024 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition and FC 250 Rockstar Edition in the upcoming AMA Supercross Championship, revealed today with a series of advanced upgrades.

In addition to new frames and revised suspension settings, both machines continue to be expertly assembled with a comprehensive list of race-tested Technical Accessories. Factory Racing wheels and triple clamps, together with an FMF Racing Factory 4.1 silencer are found on each model, with the latest Rockstar Energy Husqvarna graphics completing the builds.

Unique to the Rockstar Edition models are the headlining components found on each machine – the new Connectivity Unit Offroad (CUO), which is fitted to the fork leg behind the front number plate along with the front-fender-mounted GPS sensor. A choice of pre-set engine maps based on pre-defined track conditions can be easily activated, customized and saved. Riders can also refine the engine braking, Launch and Traction Control settings, as well as the sensitivity of the Quickshifter.

The app also includes suspension set-up recommendations to ensure riders compete with the best set-up on every type of circuit. Additionally, the GPS sensor records every on-track session and allows riders to analyze their performance within the Rider feature, which is powered by LitPro, inside the Ride Husqvarna Motorcycles App.
