Features

Advanced Electronics

  • EASY SHIFT: The new Quickshift function (upwards only) can be activated or deactivated via the handlebar-mounted Map Select Switch. It works by a sensor on the shift drum sending a signal to the ECU when it registers a gear change, which momentarily interrupts the ignition for a fraction of a second. This allows for a smooth upshift even with the throttle fully open.
  • MAP SWITCH: Handlebar mounted for quick and easy operation, the redesigned Map Select Switch allows for either of the two preset engine maps to be selected. With separate buttons for engaging launch and traction control, as well as one to activate the new Quickshift functionality, the performance of the FC 250 Rockstar Edition is fully customizable via the Map Select Switch.
  • ELECTRIC START AND LI-ION BATTERY: To ensure the lowest weight possible while ensuring fast and reliable starting, the FC 250 Rockstar Edition features a Li-Ion 2.0 Ah battery which is approximately 2.2 lb (1 kg) lighter than a conventional lead battery. Additionally, the electric start button now controls the stopping of the engine for a simplified experience.

Class-Leading Performance

  • CYLINDER HEAD: Optimal performance is guaranteed from the revised DOHC cylinder head thanks to the DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coated finger followers minimizing friction. These actuate the large titanium valves (32.5 mm intake, 27.5 mm exhaust) and introduce the fuel/air mixture into the combustion chamber to create efficient, best-in-class power throughout the 14,000-rpm rev range. Further updates include new valve timings adapted to the new valve measurements, which work in perfect unison with the redesigned camshaft.
  • CYLINDER & PISTON: Redesigned for improved performance and reliability, the new 81 mm bore cylinder houses a bridged-box type piston made by CP, which weighs only 150 grams. Professionally engineered from high strength aluminum, both components achieve the lowest possible weight without sacrificing durability. The stroke has been revised to be 48.5 mm with the compression ratio increased to 14.5:1 for added torque and peak performance. Completing the revisions, the inlet port on the CFD optimized combustion chamber is smaller to create a more responsive power delivery.
  • GEARBOX: Manufactured by Pankl Racing Systems, the new 5-speed gearbox is designed to be lightweight while maintaining its proven durability. For 2022, a new Quickshift sensor is positioned on the shift drum, which ensures smooth upshifts, even when the engine is under heavy load. A low-friction coating on the shifting fork further enhances positive gear changes. Optimal power delivery from the engine is guaranteed at all times thanks to an advanced sensor that selects specific engine maps dependent on the gear selected.
  • DS CLUTCH: Featuring a single diaphragm steel pressure plate instead of traditional coil springs, the Diaphragm Steel (DS) clutch installed on the FC 250 Rockstar Edition is unique in design and faultless in performance. Complete with a CNC-machined steel clutch basket, the single-piece component allows the use of thin steel liners and contributes to the compact layout of the engine.
  • BREMBO BRAKES: Class leading Brembo brakes deliver the highest level of controllable stopping power on the FC 250 Rockstar Edition. A 260 mm floating front disc and 220 mm wave rear disc instils confidence in the rider and allows for late braking into turns, which reduces lap times. A new polyamide composite front disc protector is fitted as standard for added protection.

Finest Componentry

  • EXHAUST SYSTEM: Designed from lightweight aluminum, the exhaust system on the FC 250 Rockstar Edition features a flow-designed resonance chamber that is integrated into the header pipe. The silencer has a short and compact design, delivering impressive power output while keeping decibels as low as possible.
  • FACTORY WHEEL SET: For unrivalled durability, the hubs used on the Factory Wheel Set are CNC-machined from forged aluminum then anodized black for a true race team look. The hubs are then laced to black D.I.D. DirtStar rims with high quality spokes to create a strong, lightweight wheel set. The reduction in unsprung weight contributes to improved overall handling.
  • FACTORY CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS: Improving front wheel stability, the Factory CNC Machined Triple Clamps are designed to ensure unrestricted suspension performance courtesy of the optimally tuned steering stem and perfect fork alignment. Customized ergonomics can also be achieved with two offset options - 20 mm and 22 mm - allowing for a personalized set-up. Additionally, the new bar clamp can be rubber mounted to reduce vibrations or fitted without for enhanced rider feedback.
  • PRO TAPER HANDLEBAR & ODI GRIPS: Second to none when it comes to function and style, the ProTaper handlebar is lightweight and incredibly strong. The carefully selected bar bend reduces pressure points on the rider's hands with soft compound ODI lock-on grips offering additional comfort.
  • TYRES: Designed to perform, the Dunlop GEOMAX MX33 Motocross tires feature the proven 'block-within-a-block' design. This ensures exceptional traction and complete control on a wide variety of racing surfaces including sand, mud, and even hardpack.

Uncompromised Ability

  • BODYWORK: Beneath the race team replica graphics, the new bodywork is designed to enhance unrestricted movements and allow riders of all abilities to perform at their very best for extended periods of time. Complete with a high grip GUTS Racing seat cover, superior control in all conditions is guaranteed.
  • FORK: Featuring a capsulated air spring and pressurized oil chamber, the new WP XACT 48 mm split air fork delivers incredible performance. With oil and air bypasses reducing pressure peaks, in combination with a mid-valve damping system the fork provides exceptional feedback and rider comfort. A new hydrostop system creates a more progressive damping force in the last 40 mm of travel for improved bottoming resistance.
  • SHOCK: The fully redesigned WP XACT rear shock is 15 mm shorter and weighs 100 grams less compared to its predecessor, yet the rear wheel travel remains unchanged at 300 mm. Matched to a revised linkage system designed with new geometry, the shock offers progressive damping and superior energy absorption.
  • FRAME: Black powder coated for a true race team look, the new hydro-formed, laser-cut, and robot-welded steel frame is expertly crafted. Constructed with specifically calculated parameters of longitudinal and torsional flex, the chassis delivers exceptional rider feedback, and straight-line stability. Larger, all-new footrests are mounted closer to the center of the motorcycle, which helps prevent them from catching on the ground through deep ruts and slowing forward momentum. Additionally, the FC 250 Rockstar Edition features a new polyamide skid plate to protect the frame and engine from hard impacts.
  • SUBFRAME: The redesigned composite subframe highlights Husqvarna Motorcycles' innovation and use of advanced manufacturing technologies, and is constructed from 60% polyamide and 40% aluminum to achieve an overall weight of just 3.9 lb (1.8 kg). With the help of computational dynamics specific rigidity has been engineered into the light and robust subframe, which enhances handling and rider comfort.
  • SWINGARM: The new aluminum swingarm has been designed to ensure optimal stiffness and durability using an improved die-casting process, which reduces the overall weight by approximately 190 grams. Further accentuating the revised flex characteristics from the new chassis, a new 22 mm rear axle has been fitted. Additionally, the chain guard and glider have been re-designed with a smoother profile to offer improved durability.
