The 237lb SF 450, according to RacerXOnline, has been decked out in some dynamic set of white and grey graphics, which in turn pay respect to the all-new heart: A 4-stroke engine with a redesigned SOHC cylinder head, among other things.
The whole package purportedly weighs a mere 26.8 Kg/ 59lbs and has been “tilted two degrees backwards to further centralise mass” (via Husqvarna) – a possibility made all the easier by the new hydro-formed frame / polyamide-reinforced aluminum subframe.
Pro Taper handlebars carry an upgraded map select switch that make traction control, launch control and Quickshifter selection all the easier – and that’s not even mentioning the Suter anti-hopping clutch and banging suspension Huskie chose for this machine.
With AER technology dressing the new WP XACT 48 mm front forks (and rear shock design complementing CFD-optimized main piston and tool-free adjusters), you’re getting a ride that can be as smooth or as choppy as you like – no more excuses.
