Sneak Peek - New Husqvarna 450

We've gotten a bunch of sneak peek pictures from Husqvarna of an all new 450!

According to Husqvarna they've been hard at work on an all new 450 that will combine a technically advanced motor with an all new chasis.

The photos were taken during a test at Crossodromo Malpensa (VA - Italy) where Husqvarna's tester Andrea Bartolini and our official Husqvarna rider, Alex Salvini have been working with our engineer Pierluigi Zampieri ( Racing Department Manager) to develop the motorcycle before the official debut that will follow in a few weeks. Possibly at the next round of the Enduro World Championships in Italy.
