I'm another that's glad to see this bike as I said when word first came out.
Not a true dirt dual sport but good for ADV travel and good competition for the KLR in many ways. Hopefully it will even wake up the others (Suzuki, Honda and Yamaha
) to redo their long overdue 650 bikes (and maybe one of them to bring it over to this side of the pond!).
I'm looking forward to seeing them here but first Husky Canada needs to get going and be sorted by BMW.
If this leads to another bike from Husky (I'd gladly pay another $1000.00) for a more sorted dirt version with adjustable suspension etc...even better too!
P.S. There's some great 3M tape (and the dirt bike protector tape) that's perfect for protecting the side panels> good for use with Giant Loop bags and keeping your bike looking new(er) too.
