Once completely redesigned a bike’s improved the rest of the chassis and introduced fuel injection to the powerful motor, I guess you can say you completely revamped that Only that this we are talking about two models feature the exact same despite the cylinder capacity.

The SM 450 R and SM 510 R stand as the new impressive entries and in for some real Supermoto


Husqvarna hasn’t produced the two models, especially the SM 510 R, but did manage to pull it through and every year and got out with a image.

The Husqvarna SM 450 R Super was first manufactured in 2003 and it a carbureted 449cc single underneath the 11.7 litres gallons) tank. It was all covered in (rims made an exception) only a little bit of blue for the and Husqvarna logo on each

In 2005 the Husky SM 450 R was radically both concerning exterior and mechanics. It was among the first of this maker to feature the red and color scheme together the modern styling which can be found on it today, but what made it stand out was in fact all that plastic. The engine was now to the previous generation thanks to the fuel control system, ignition, kick starter and TMR 41mm carburetor.

It was a real piece of modernity as it a wet, multiplate type, clutch and six-speed gearbox. The brakes diameter was 320mm and 220mm rear so the manufacturer towards performance, but a little refinement was needed.

Also, in was first produced the SM 510 R, an exactly looking motorcycle as the first SM 450 R (black was the key as well), but the engine and goodies were all top notch, on the new (at the time) SM 450 R. The tank began smaller on the biggest version (as as that might be) as the new release had a gallons tank.

The 2007 SM 450 R was more of a track machine as it aggressive styling (headlight and a more attractive red, and green paintjob. Rims painted red. The exhaust was provided by Arrow for better performance and the gas tank featured gallons.

Still, the 2007 Supermoto and SMR 510 Supermoto models produced as genuine replicas of the Motard championship winning The engines differ only in of 60.7 and 67.8 mm, exactly you will read on the 2008 page.


The streets never seen such packed-up motards that are testimonies of Husqvarna’s perseverance and evolution.

Get the mirrors and the headlight off of it (both the same so the hell with and you’re set with a racing thing inspired on the track that lead to its creation.

At the end, the massive Supermoto and 320mm brake disc about performance and accuracy as as the forks, mudguards and handlebars. All of elements are black in order to the striking contrast that everybody on the showroom floor. But so characteristic at every Husky, track, motocross or off-road is the white front fender the black stripe on it.

This piece smoothes-out the pass the fender to the black headlight and also makes the two elements like one.

On the sides, the red look sharp even they were reduced to a and blended perfectly in with the new tank that they Also perfectly blended in is the seat together with the number plates and the white fender which makes that the “circle” is completely

The Supermoto 17 inch rims are matte black while the is white. A mighty cylinder the gas tank looks like a performance and fun source with the exiting on the left rider

You will find no difference the two except the model’s name on each side of the bike.


Once you finally end up in its the first thing you’ll do is if that is even a seat as the manufacturer claims, these are supposed to stand as commuters from track machines, but I serious doubts this is being completed. Frankly, you last more than an while going from A to point B. If there are some lights in the middle, you will crave for some weekend activities to clean out the five of nightmare if you indeed go for it and buy this for the commuting purpose.

A single push of a button is in order to get the engine started and it is to let it worm up a bit given to the fact these are purely accelerating with awesome throttle so the engine would have to at just the right temperature.

I got on the SM 450 R and gave it a go in the environment that it hates: the city. I don’t if this was a test for the bike or for the but I do know that this is not the ace it hidden in its sleeve.

The four-…, valves, DOHC, liquid single cylinder was strongly for 2008 model year and it now brand new camshafts which spotless on also new titanium It all results in great throttle and better reliability. Generously the throttle out of the corners and you’ll see Motards are all about as the front will have trouble on the ground. That is mostly due to the new electronic fuel injection.

Developed in collaboration with the system, together with the mentioned DOHC valve system will have arm muscles ripped in a split

The great advantage that the 450 and 510 SM models have is the lightweight characterizes them. At only lbs, a piece of machinery produces approximately 54 HP (450) or more, 60 HP (510) will put an end to any when the red light turns Other motorcycles won’t a chance thanks to the impressive to weight ratio that the two Husky bikes.

Performance weren’t released, but you can make a good idea of how all that if being valued by an expert on a closed course track.

on the track, not only the engine prove its best when the line will invite you to open the throttle, but the entire fitted on this bike have you amazed in an instant.

The is versatility itself so it will competitive on any given conditions, but on the a rider will feel at home and constantly invited to more and more with more speed and notice how is the feedback provided by the frame’s new

Contributing to the impressive riding and at the way these things corner is the forks with new calibration and and the new Sachs shock absorber 18 mm piston and valve system. For the the front end seemed a bit too soft, the rear end made things a hard on my lower back so I off two clicks from the compression on the rear shock and immediately things out. I could now even more confidently and a bit more comfortably.

Did I mention the Absolutely wonderful! I have no whatsoever related to the 320mm respectively 240mm rear brakes. Not for the faith hearted!

the engine higher and higher a tight corner approaches actually determine your instinct to kick in as you will yourself hitting the brakes in the last possible moment. But is no problem for the Brembo brakes. It down extremely sharp and making sure that in again for some arm-ripping fun.

And on the SM 510 R everything is taken a forward as you would expect. though the chassis is the same and the brakes keep doing job wonderfully, the engine is the one that all the difference. In fact, not even the but the bigger … is the element clearly says its word.

new bikes has Husqvarna delivered and if you plan on riding the one you choose to but simply for fun on twisty roads, or on a Supermoto track, you will to the conclusion that there was no choice for you to make.


All of these impressive that will help the stand out as being among the capable bangers out there reflect on their prices. And I at all!

MSRP for the Husky SM 450 R is and the SM 510 R will only require more bucks. Could it be


The answer is on everyone’s so I would like to hear it you. How do things like the to weight ratio, brakes and work for you? I know were spotless in my case, but the had given me a very hard so I am always waiting for second
