Husqvarna FS450 – VIDEO

You’ve probably seen our recent post on the Husqvarna FS450. (If not you can read it here.)
The once Swedish brand has shot a pretty great vid of this new little monster we like so much.
As always my advice is to turn the volume way up (so the rest of the office can enjoy that single cylinder howl), lean back, and enjoy…

Husqvarna started making motorcycles way back in 1903. At first with imported engines, but ever since 1918 it’s all in house.
In 1987 Husqvarna was sold to Italian Cagiva and became part of MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. Production moved to Varese, Italy.
In 2007 Huqvarna was sold to BMW Motorrad for 93 million euros.
On 31 January 2013 BMW Group announced that Pierer Industrie AG has bought full stake in Husqvarna AG. The company is headed by Stefan Pierer, current CEO of KTM-Sportmotorcycle AG.
It was announced that the company will be based at Mattighofen in Austria where production started on 11 October 2013.
Owing to the common ownership of Husqvarna, Husaberg and KTM it was decided that Husaberg will cease to exist as a marque and will provide technical assistance to the newly resurrected Husqvarna brand.
So the next time you ride or see a Husky, remember it all started in a small Swedish town called Husqvarna, not more than 150km from Gothenburg.
Now turn the sound up and hit that play button…
