2012 Husqvarna SMR449

Get started with the SMR 449

The line is completely revolutionary: slim, svelte and refined. The single piece side panel runs from where traditionally the fuel tank would be, all the way through to the rear mudguard, allowing the rider free and unhindered movement. Design and styling cues signify a high performance ride dynamic incorporating both speed and agility.

Husqvarna’s mass centralisation theme offers a significantly lower centre of gravity that delivers exceptional steering and handling characteristics. The unique CTS (Coaxial Traction System) provides optimum suspension performance to deliver outstanding traction for any surface regardless of throttle load. These innovative design features combine with the SMR 449’s extremely light kerb weight of just 118 kg to offer the most dynamic Supermoto experiences available.

A class leading list of components as standard including Brembo, Magura, Sachs, Marzocchi round out the SMR 449 package.

The performance revolution. Nothing will ever be the same again at Motocross tracks. Revolutionary design, top performance and CTS system. The courage to face your limits is inside you.
