Yesterday, we posted a gallery featuring the uber trick Factory Suzuki machines of Broc Tickle, Ken Roczen, and Blake Baggett. Today, we’re bringing you the Factory supported KTM and Husqvarna bikes of Andrew Short, Jessy Nelson, and Zach Osborne. All three of these immaculately prepared bikes are packed full of unobtainable parts that will make anyone drool, including air suspension on the front and rear of one of them. Be sure to check back tomorrow for another gallery of more Factory Trickness.
BTOsports.com/KTM’s Andrew Short is running a WP airshock as well as a WP air fork. Of all the KTM riders, he is the only one running this, and thanks to the lack of heavy springs, his bike is said to be one of the lightest in the pits.
Short’s machine is full factory, and if you look closely at this photo, nothing has been over-looked.
Short is the only KTM rider to be running WP’s new air fork. Not much has been released on the fork, however, we hear that it might see production soon.
Zach Osborne’s Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna might look deceivingly stock, however, it is one fire-breathing machine.
In stock trim, the Husqvarnas have a choked up airbox. The factory team cuts these holes in the side to allow more airflow, which equals more power.
FMF provides the exhaust system for the Factory Husqvarna and KTM efforts. FMF has long been known to work with each team in creating a custom system that fits their needs.
