The Husqvarna SM 510R has seen some quite radical changes reflecting the experience gained from wins in the World Championship. All the new body panels have IPD (in-mould plastic decoration) graphics and are made of stronger, more flexible plastic.
The front and rear lights are more powerful. The rear houses LED lights and an integrated dual purpose number plate holder for road use or racing. The front mudguard is also new.
The new look of the bike is both eye-catching and different. Still on the subject of looks, the wheels are black anodised Excel rims and the new plastic engine protectors on both sides are black.
The 510 engine has also benefited from a new timing gear chain tensioner that was introduced to improve chain tension and reduce contact pressure. The exhaust system has twin aluminium silencers that create a very special sound, reduce overall noise levels and improve performance.
