KTM and Husky - Application
Posted on October 14, 2020
Following the launch of the 2021 motocross range, Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to announce the availability of the myHusqvarna app – an easy-to-use smartphone application that grants exact customisation of engine and suspension settings on all 2021 4-stroke and 2020 FC 450 Rockstar Edition models. Ensuring true performance can be tailored to suit individual riders of all abilities, the myHusqvarna app and accompanying bike-mounted Connectivity Unit also allow the management and storage of motorcycle set-up information.
Together with many other features the key highlights of the myHusqvarna app are two main engine modes – Prime and Advanced. These options let riders of all abilities accurately set-up their engine’s performance according to their specific requirements and track conditions.
Combining valuable input from Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing with extensive in-house research and testing, both modes give valuable set-up recommendations to support riders using the application. Additionally, in Prime mode riders have the possibility to adjust the level of traction control interference. The Advanced mode further permits modification of the engine brake, throttle response, traction and launch control, based on personal preferences.
The Suspension feature provides set-up recommendations for personalised and precise improvements. Depending on rider skill level, weight and track conditions the myHusqvarna app offers fork and shock set-up information.
The myHusqvarna app is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store with the bike-mounted Connectivity Unit available as a Husqvarna Motorcycles Technical Accessory.
Main features and benefits:
- Creation of a virtual Garage where riders can modify, manage and store motorcycle set-up information.
- The Engine feature allows customisation of engine behaviour, to suit personal rider preferences, while also giving valuable recommendations.
- Adjustable settings and recommendations of the Engine mapping take terrain and track conditions into consideration.
- The Suspension feature recommends suspension settings based on skill level and track conditions but also assists the rider in evaluating and setting the correct suspension SAG.
- The myHusqvarna app is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
The all-new myHusqvarna app is available from the respective app stores for Apple iOS and Google Android phones from October onwards. For further details on the myHusqvarna app and Connectivity Unit please refer to your national Husqvarna Motorcycles subsidiary or importer. Availabilities of the Connectivity Unit may differ from country to country.
KTM - MyKTM app
Placing added control in the hands of KTM SX-F riders, the myKTM app allows for quick and easy bike setup with key tuning tools and helpful advice from the comfort of your smartphone device. With the software now downloadable for both iOS and Android, the KTM PowerParts Connectivity Unit kit will be available to purchase in North America this December with initial availability in limited numbers.
Thousands of hours and testing have gone into the creation of KTM’s advanced myKTM app that for 2021 graces the complete line up of KTM SX-F 4-stroke bikes. This innovative tool places simple and concise adjustability of engine mapping and performance, along with precise recommendations for suspension settings using well-presented and intuitive menu screens.
The myKTM app functions through a straightforward Bluetooth connection to the Connectivity Unit located in the handlebar pad. Once synced, the bike will be added into your virtual GARAGE and will immediately become available for a range of tuning options and recommendations described in the respective ENGINE and SUSPENSION sections.
Entering ENGINE allows riders to customize parameters of the engine to their taste or to suit the terrain and conditions they are about to face. It involves a basic ‘sliding scale’ approach, with several pre-sets allowing modifications of vital parameters such as ENGINE BRAKING, THROTTLE RESPONSE, TRACTION CONTROL and LAUNCH CONTROL. The changes made through the app are tangible, effective and very noticeable from the first moments of a new lap.
Selecting SUSPENSION means that riders can make their KTM SX-Fs even more specialized in terms of handling. It removes some of the settings guesswork to deal with hard-pack, muddy or sandy tracks thanks to the SAG ASSISTANT and the SUSPENSION SETTING recommendation. The recommendations are helpful for new tuners and experienced riders and racers alike.
