Did you take the wheels and body work off your Daytona? Because stock ones weigh about the same as this bike!?

I think I should weigh myself on bad husky's scale so my wife will stop complaining about my diet and exercise

Will hit the USA later this year. Curious that BMW seems to making Husky compete with their own(BMW) bikes. I'd certainly take one of these over a G650GS! My only complaint is that they're a bit heavy, 410pounds wet

Has anyone ever heard of the 750 dirt bike they made in the 70's 2 stroker,
bike had so much power and torque the decided not to produce.. Ate through a knobby in a day... They only made 2 of them..

The Terra looks like a nice dual sport for back country stuff. Good alternative to the normal 650 lumps. I enjoyed my F650GS but this seems far more capable and the F650 is a round the world proven platform on a single.

I saw the pics and I was like: YEAH!!!!
Then I looked at the specs and I was like: oh.

68hp and ~350#'s would fit the look this bike projects much better.

I like what I've read about the Terra so far...with the exception of the weight. Looks like it would do lite offroading fine and be comfortable as a commuter.

I like them! I don't know what the big deal is about the weight. Husqvarna describes them as "seven-day-a-week motorcycles, capable of being both urban commuters and weekend trekkers" and "offering 55 mpg". I didn't see anything in the brochure about winning races. Also, just because a bike takes it's design cues from supermoto, doesn't mean it's trying to be a supermoto. Why isn't anyone flailing their arms and crying about the GSX1250 or Ninja 1000 trying to pretend to be race replicas? Probably because they're not, just like these aren't pretending to be race weekend supermotos.

Maybe you don't need balls out performance to have fun on a bike...

I'm not sure what all the poo-poo is about. Both bikes look like they would be a lot of fun, the Strada version in particular. I've been considering a 19" front wheel for my DR ever since I ran a Shinko 705 on the 21" stock wheel. What a difference in handling that was, over the stock Trailwing. The Strada looks like it would be a blast around town, but I'll take my DR over the Terra any day. It may not have the HP stock, but there are big bore kits for the DR that dyno about the same and the DR weighs a lot less.

Overall, I like what I see in these new Husky models. They look like civilized hooligans.

Tried to rep this, but need to find others worthy of it first.

I've never seen a trials on slicks, but I'm sure that would be under 200... I don't know how fast or fun it'd be on the street.

It should be noted that, although some have come close, this has never actually happened. Something in the air, I guess.
