I dont know how far away this guy is from you, but he has some killer deals on new 09/10's and is genuinely a good guy. Last time I talked to him he said he could get 2010 FE570's.

FYI, NY titles say "OFF ROAD" and for some reason are not the same as the MSO's that you receive when buying the bikes in most other states. This can be a major problem if you live in a state where it's hard to get a plate (i.e., Pennsylvania). This of course doesn't apply to the 2011 FE570, since they come street legal in all states.

This is what he said when I asked what the title stated "The 2009 & 2010, as well as the 2011 FE390 & fe450 all say off road use "restricted"....not prohibited."

I dont really know how that affects titling a bike, just thought it had merit here.

Well, to clarify how this can be an issue: my friend, who lives in PA, purchased a left over '09 FE570 from them earlier this year. He had to apply for a rebuild title with the state, put every single piece of required gear on the bike (including the ridiculously long rear fender overhang), then take it to an enhanced inspection station, and then wait for a new title from the State. It wasn't impossible, but it sure was a lot more work, time, and cost than buying a bike with a non-offroad MSO.

Again, this was required for PA. Now if I bought the bike from NY and needed a plate here in Ohio, the process is much easier

My FE570

I picked up my FE570 in Gilbert, WV in early March. I was anxious to test it out, so I did a 50 mile solo trail ride on the Hatfield McCoy trails, in the snow.


Although I had done a good amount of off-road riding, this was my first real “adventure ride” on it. I joined some friends in April for a 100 mile assault on the Seven Mountains area in eastern PA.


The next day we rode some awesome single-track are near Jim Thorpe, PA. This was the Berg’s first ride in some seriously rocky terrain (more so than anywhere I’ve been, including Colorado).


On the Hanging Rock National Dual Sport ride in southern Ohio in May. One of the muddiest days ever!


On the Star Trail in Crested Butte, Colorado this Summer:

On the Teocalli Ridge Trail:



Damn, I miss Colorado


Took a weekend long 500 mile riding/camping trip in West Virginia in October. Here she is loaded down:



Taken a few weeks ago (thanks PABiker)



My 570 has 112 hours and 2300 miles now. It’s been a great bike so far. The only major issue was a partially clogged fuel injector (replaced while under warranty).

Excellent photos. Question for all you 570 owners. Do you run a map switch on your bikes? Curious to know how much it changes the powerband. Does the lowest setting turn it down to the output of maybe a 400? I'm guessing the highest is full power, correct?

"Offroad only" MSO

If that's what the MSO says here in NJ, than that blows. I want the FE390 so badly, but if it can't be taged legally than it's a useless deal unless one has access to hundreds of acres of private land. And I am not saying got to get it taged to slab it. And who the hell would want to slab this bike anyway? I am talking about taging it to be able to ride organized DS events with local clubs which all require legal registration.
This sucks. We have to drive 1/2 day (one way) just to find trails that don't require tags, and even they are getting shut down one after another. Why even bother selling them in NJ?

Sorry for the rant but wanted to vent to a few that may understand and agree with my point.

On another note, a clever idea is to buy a FE570 frame and throw in a 390/450 motor. If the frame is the same size and weight, than that would be the hot ticket.

Just looked at the specs between the 390/450/and 570. They are all the exact same frame and size but with different motors. So I guess a motor swap would be one way to have a true street legal fe390.

Chill out duder. You're not even sure yet what the NJ title says. It seems that MOST states come with a normal MC MSO, just like the KTMs (in fact, my MSO, which was from WV, even said KTM on it). Chances are you'll be fine. Hopefully someone from NJ who knows for sure will chime in here. If not, ask on the Unofficial Husaberg forum, or the Husaberg forum on KTMtalk. If the NJ title is Offroad Only, then you can just buy one from state that doesn't suck (or a used one in NJ that's already plated)

Yeah, I can't wait! I'll have to borrow some fuel off you though since you're getting that Safari tank

As per what a dealer in NJ said last week, the MSO says Offroad Only.

Still on the fence about the tank. Might just toss an MSR bottle or 2 in the Wolfman saddlebags like BoomBoom did. Either way I'll have enough for both of us.

Ahh, my bad. Your last post made it sound like you weren't sure (you said "If that's what the MSO says..."). Like I said earlier, there are other options though if you need a plated 'Berg.
