The latest Husqvarna supermoto is new and improved and features an all new frame, engine and gearbox, which essentially makes it a completely new motorcycle when compared to its predecessors.

The drivetrain of this particular motorbike is based on the motorcross KTM 450 SX-F. It has undergone a fairly strenuous redesign effort that has ultimately resulted in an engine unit that is significantly more compact, not to mention as much as 1.8 kg lighter. This engine unit is hooked up to a five-speed gearbox -- also smaller and lighter than usual. Adler Power Torque slipper clutch is installed to get rid of rear end hopping when braking and downshifting.

This Husqvarna supermoto is designed with the astute biker in mind, and promises reliable performance and handling.
