2013 Husqvarna SMR 449

Posted on by

The Husqvarna SMR is an agile dirt bike which features a svelte silhouette and is packed with a long list of modern technologies. The motorcycle comes with a single piece side panel which runs from where traditionally the fuel tank would be, all the way through to the rear mudguard. The company says that it was carefully designed to offer a lower center of gravity, so you can expect to top notch steering and handling abilities.

Power comes from a 449.6 cc, liquid cooled single cylinder, 4-stroke, DOHC, 4 valve engine which is paired with an 8.5 liter fuel tank.

The Husqvarna SMR sits on 17 inch wheels shod in 120/70-17" Pirelli M/C 58H TL Diablo front and 50/60-17" Pirelli M/C 66H TL Diablo rear tyres. The front wheel is kept in check by a MARZOCCHI USD telescopic hydraulic fork with advanced axle, compression and rebound stroke adjustment while the rear suspension consist of a SACHS Progressive link with single hydraulic shock absorber and features spring preload adjustment, compression and rebound adjustment.

Overview

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.
