Is there a ride report to go along with that pic?

Haven't seen ride reports yet...but they sure are pretty.

At that price, this thing could turn some heads.

And yes, there are far too many threads on these bikes.

What was the normal pricing of the TE630 before runout sales started over there?

jon_l 09-12-2012 05:23 AM

TE630 was $9k list price in US.

This is a repackaged G650 BMW, with some improvements and a 10% HP increase. The new Husky 650 Terra and Strada look nice for their purposes, but less off-road and performance-oriented and they carry much more weight than the TE630 (around 340lbs vs 405lbs).

Agreed. A 400+ pound thumper dirtbike doesn't make much sense to me.
It may sway a few people who were considering a Sertao, but I can't imagine these will sell.

BMW uses that exact same back drop for the introduction of almost every model line. :deal

$6999 list price
 
Well at that price I would certainly consider it... I've heard the Rotax motor is a good, and at that price it could compete with a KLR to a certain degree. The new Honda NC700x is in the same price rage and is an indirect competitor as is a vstrom... The fact is the dual/Adventure sport segment is pretty loose in it's definition and consumers needs/wants. It will also bite into dr650 sales... The price is right and the specs are acceptable

In some respects, I think they should have stuffed the rotax in the old TE chassis

Even Husqvarna in their press releases state that the Terra is for "asphalt-based and light terrain motorcycling fun." This undoubtedly is a road-bike at heart, meant to compete with the KLR's of the world. At this price, with what you are getting compared to a KLR, I could see it doing just that.

jon_l 09-12-2012 09:34 AM

I agree, not a TE replacement, but rather, a modern KLR.

I think it looks like a winner.

If you want me to buy it as an adventure tourer/KLR replacement, give me more than a 3.5 gallon tank? :(:

You're right, usually those motors do produce pretty good MPG. Interested to see what kind of range it gets.
