- 44 mm throttle body
The FX 450 features the same 44 mm Keihin throttle body found on the FC 450. The injector is positioned to ensure the most efficient flow into the combustion chamber while to ensure optimal throttle response the throttle cable is mounted directly without a throttle linkage providing more immediate throttle response and feeling.
The Keihin EMS is specifically designed to be smaller lighter and faster at processing data. It integrates launch control for perfect starts selectable engine maps via the switch on the handlebar as well as traction control. Combined with the new gear sensor power delivery is tailored for each gear.
- Launch control
Launch control is easily engaged from the handlebar map switch. This function limits the amount of power to the rear wheel improving traction and preventing loss of control under hard acceleration at the start line.
- Electric starter
Along with the benefit of easy starting the electric starting system is combined with a compact Li-Ion battery which is 2.2 pounds lighter than a conventional battery. The wiring harness has been purposefully designed so that the rear subframe can be removed without having to remove any wiring.
The SOHC engine is the perfect example of the advanced engineering techniques used by Husqvarna motorcycles offering a peak power of 63 hp at an overall weight of just 61.3 pounds. Mass-centralization is key in the engine design enabling chassis engineers to position the engine closer to the center of gravity for optimal handling and maneuverability.
The inertia produced by the crankshaft is carefully calculated to deliver optimal traction and ride-ability from the powerful 450 cc plant. The crankshaft is specifically positioned to harness the rotating mass in the ideal center of gravity resulting in a lightweight and agile handling feel. A plain big end bearing comprising of two force-fitted bearing shells ensure maximum reliability and durability guaranteeing long service intervals of 100 hours.
The crankcases are designed to house the shaft arrangements and internals of the engine in the position that offers the best possible centre of gravity. Additionally the position of the clutch shaft keeps the clutch above the oil level resulting in decreased friction and increased efficiency.
