This appeals to both professional and amateur riders alike, making for a more user-friendly riding experience in all conditions. It is this versatility, paired with intelligent traction and launch control, which makes the FX 350 one of the most multi talented off-road motorcycles on the market.
2021 Husqvarna FX350 Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
Husqvarna Motorcycles North America, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of the new MY21 motocross range, highlighting nine true-performance minibikes and full-sized motorcycles, in addition to three cross-country machines that all deliver superior riding experiences. Featuring the latest technological advancements, all machines ensure uncompromised power-to-weight, leading ergonomics and aesthetics.
For 2021 Husqvarna Motorcycles has focused on further improving suspension performance and handling by adding new hardware to the WP XACT forks with AER technology including a new mid-valve damping system for increased rider comfort on landings, as well as reducing pressure peaks for consistent damping performance. Additionally, new low-friction linkage seals offer refined suspension response on the WP XACT shock.
Delivering minimal weight, ease of handling and the highest levels of performance, Husqvarna Motorcycles’ TC and TXi lineup features the latest 2-stroke technology with class-leading power and unrivaled attention-to-detail. Advanced ergonomics and modern bodywork combine to ensure all TC and TXi machines offer superior on-track comfort and control in all riding conditions.
Engineered to keep ahead of the field, Husqvarna Motorcycles’ 4-stroke models feature compact and modern engines with internal shaft arrangements at the ideal center of gravity to notably benefit handling and maneuverability. At the top of the range, the powerful and smooth FC 450 engine has been enhanced with several new internal pieces as well as revised mapping to keep it running at the front of the pack. Modern electronics and launch control throughout the lineup ensure perfect acceleration. Accompanying the launch of the 2021 motocross range is the new Husqvarna Motorcycles app and Connectivity Unit, coming to the Technical Accessories lineup this summer. The app enables riders to adjust their FC’s engine mapping and gives recommendations for the optimum suspension setting. Additionally, it allows for precise customization and personalization, while improving overall rideability.

2021 Husqvarna FX350 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The 350 cc DOHC engine weighs in at only 60 pounds and has a maximum power that rivals most 450 cc machines. The engine is specifically designed with performance, weight and mass centralization as key criteria. As a result, all shaft arrangements are positioned to allow oscillating masses to occupy the ideal center of gravity while all parts are engineered to offer the best possible performance while adding the least possible weight.
The FX 350 features an advanced DOHC cylinder head layout meticulously engineered to deliver every fraction of performance. The internals feature polished camshafts and DLC coated finger followers, resulting in minimal friction and unsurpassed overall performance, allowing the engine to rev freely to 13,400 rpm.
CYLINDER & PISTON
An 88 mm bore and 57.5 mm stroke cylinder features a compression ratio of 14.2:1 and a large diameter yet lightweight forged bridged-box-type piston. As a result, the low oscillating mass delivers exceptional power, high revs and a very wide power band.
At the heart of the high-output, high-revving FX 350 engine is a crankshaft featuring a plain big end bearing featuring two force-fitted bearing shells, ensuring maximum reliability and durability, guaranteeing long service intervals of 100 hours.
Clean, Swedish-inspired design and ergonomics are tailored to deliver exceptional comfort and control, enabling riders to perform at the highest level for extended periods of time. As a result of extensive testing, the slim contact points make shifting between riding positions easier and allow the rider to flow with movement. The flat seat profile, together with the seat cover texture, deliver superior comfort and control in all conditions.
The chromium molybdenum steel frame is expertly crafted using laser-cut, robot-welded, hydro-formed tubes, ensuring the highest level of precision and quality. The specifically crafted geometry utilises advanced longitudinal and torsional flex characteristics, for unparalleled rider feedback, energy absorption and exceptional straight-line stability. The frame is finished off in a premium blue powder coating with standard frame protectors for superior protection and durability.
COMPOSITE CARBON FIBRE SUBFRAME
The carbon composite subframe is unique to Husqvarna Motorcycles and showcases advanced production technology and innovation. Using 70% polyamide and 30% carbon fibre, the 2-piece subframe has a total weight of just over 1 kg. With the help of computational dynamics, specific rigidity was engineered into the light and robust subframe, delivering outstanding handling and rider comfort.
The swingarm is manufactured from a single piece of aluminium using a gravity die-cast production process. This gives the swingarm exceptional strength while keeping the weight to a minimum. Chain adjustment markings are also visible from above to make for simpler adjustment.
Made using high-strength aluminium, the cooling system on the FX 350 features computational fluid dynamics to channel air through the radiators more efficiently. The cooling system is also integrated into the frame allowing improved cooling by channelling coolant through the frame while eliminating the need for additional hoses.
TOOL-LESS AIRBOX DESIGN
Easy access to the TWIN AIR filter is possible without tools, for quicker cleaning and easier maintenance. Precision inlet ducts maximise airflow and offer increased levels of filter protection.
The FX 350 frame features an innovative, self-cleaning footpeg mount that helps prevent mud build-up, springing back to the original position for sure footing at all times.
MAGURA HYDRAULIC CLUTCH
Reliable, high quality and German-made, the MAGURA hydraulic clutch system is almost maintenance-free, and guarantees even wear and perfect feel in all riding conditions. This means that modulation and play on the lever are constantly compensated so that the pressure point and clutch function remain identical in cold or hot conditions.
Designed for easy, one-finger operation, the map switch is standard on the FX 350. This allows riders to easily select between 2 engine maps, activate the launch control or toggle the traction control feature.
ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The KEIHIN EMS is designed to be small, lightweight and fast at processing data. It integrates launch control for perfect starts, selectable engine maps via the switch on the handlebar as well as traction control.
44 MM THROTTLE BODY
The FX 350 features a 44 mm KEIHIN throttle body ensuring the most efficient fuel flow into the combustion chamber while maintaining optimal throttle response.
ELECTRIC START AND LI-ION BATTERY
As with all 4-strokes in the Husqvarna range, the FX 350 starts with the ease of pressing a button thanks to electric start. A lightweight Li-Ion 2.0 Ah battery is fitted, giving the convenience of electric starting while keeping overall weight to a minimum.
