Wow. I feel like every single week I write a new article about a manufacturer’s upcoming motorcycle app. Last week it was KTM’s new app for controlling their MX bikes suspension and engine settings, and a few weeks prior to that it was Ducati’s MyDucati app to keep you updated on all Ducati-related things. This week, I’m introducing you to Husqvarna’s addition to the motorcycle app world.
myKTM, myDucati; what could this new Husky app possibly be called?
… the app is called myHusqvarna (sigh)…
The app will work seamlessly with all your 2021 4-stroke Husqvarna dirt bikes and 2020 FC 450 Rockstar edition bikes as well.
Similarly to the myKTM app, this rendition allows for controlling engine performance and power, while having an additional feature to let the bike tune/adjust the suspension depending on rider weight, skill level, and what kind of track you’re running around.
If you’re not very experienced with motorcycle setup, the app has 2 modes, one of which is a stripped-down version that allows for traction control sensitivity. The advanced model on the other hand gives the rider full control over throttle response, engine braking levels, launch control, etc.
You can create and save presets to use at a later date in the event that you find a perfect set up for your local track, but it perhaps doesn’t translate to a different track and you want to have multiple presets ready for a seamless transition when unloading and starting up your bike at a new track.
The unit that you connect to your bike to allow for the app to connect properly mounts directly to the bike and communicatess with your smartphone (both iOS and Android) so you can have full control of your motorcycle with the touch of a button (or screen, rather).
