In conjunction with the introduction of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing 2018 rider line-up for next year’s AMA Supercross Championship, Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to introduce the updated 2018 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition.
The line-up includes a mixture of championship winners and young contenders which comprises of Jason Anderson, Dean Wilson, Zach Osborne, Michael Mosiman, and Mitchell Harrison. Each and every one of these riders will be battling it out for the best in all race classes of the AMA SX racing series.
The new model from the Swedish-based manufacturer will be using it as the base machine for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory racing outfit for Jason Anderson and Dean Wilson. Both riders will be fighting for top honours in the 2018 AMA Supercross Championship.
