1980 Husqvarna 420A Automatic

In Dual-Sport, Sweden by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Husqvarna 420A featured a 4-speed automatic transmission that made it incredibly practical for the Swedish Army. In addition, you could throw on some skis to bike to give the bike usefulness in winter.

The two-stroke single pushed power through the 4-speed auto with 4 centrifugal clutches. When you decelerated, the powerplant went into freewheeling mode, and then when you got back on the throttle, the bike would decide the appropriate gear based on rear wheel speed.
