Husky FC450 RE

114 posts in this topic

It's sweet but a step back in the looks department, imo. Not a deal breaker but the KTM looks cooler. But the 16-18 Husky I preferred the white bikes.

Loved the looks of the first year ktm clone huskies. Not as much of a fan each subsequent year. Still a looker

I'm very tolerant typically. I genuinely think all the regular 2018 450s look great in their own way.

But this...They've crossed the line badly.

Best looking bike there is.

I meant to say production bike. But either way it's better looking than all three of the bikes you posted.   That ysmaha looks totally stupid with the reverse cylinder.

Floating disc ,they have that before ?

No

I'm not sure if the team runs them but you can buy floating rotors. I doubt a bike stopping on dirt would benefit

Not sure why the floating rotors. I know mine does not have them. I thought that trend was going out? The sidepanels supposedly are that way due to the subframe now being 2 pieces and I guess something about it is to make the exhaust and shock maintenance easier (which was tough on the previous model). The bike is sweet, just like the KTM. I can't say I'm in love with the look of the plastics though, which isn't a big deal. But to me, the 16-18 is so smooth and awesome looking. Also white frame>

I love the look of this bike. Always loved the white/red Yamahas of any year. My current 250F looks similar to this.

I really dislike that yellow line dropping toward the back of the bike. Been there a few years now and still looks like a saggy ass to me. Rest of the bike I like.

Is only Deano's setup with the floating rotor? He might like the increase in initial bite for SX
