The TE510 has a keyed ignition right? If not (that would be LAME!), is it a factory option?

No keyed ignition, just a steering lock on the TE250\450\510's, but there are a few options, Bajadesign's has one now & I'll be ordering their's this fall if I don't find a better option locally. they're fairly inexpensive,, not really a big deal

That's cool, I think. By steering lock, you mean something with a key that you can lock the steering with?

I actually have a two-way pager alarm system I bought off of ebay for $50. Was planning on putting it on my KTM 300 but it's a bit of work. Might be neat on a Husky. It comes with two pager devices with icons so you can tell if someone is moving the bike. You can also remote start and kill LOL.

The steering lock is a bit tricky, try to turn the bars as you push and turn the key and really fiddle with it. I had a hard time getting it down initially but after you figure out how much to turn the bars and key it works fine...

How necessary is it to have local dealer support for a Husky? There are no Husky dealers here in Utah but I am really digging both the TE510 and TE610 bikes, great design and very light weight. I never see Husky parts advertised in major parts catalogs such as Parts Unlimited and Rocky Mountain ATV, but then again, maybe I haven't paid attention if they were or not. I've been planning on a plated KTM 525 EXC to replaced my plated Yamaha WR426 but seeing the Husky bikes makes me want one, I just don't know if it is worth the pain of not having a local dealer when I just need to stop by and get parts, I have at least 3 or 4 local Yamaha and KTM dealers within about 70 miles, one is only 5 min. away and it is nice to swing by and pick up parts when they are in stock.

More pics please!!!!

Someone with the same Husky thoughts in thier head. I just Mailed HuskyUSA and expressed my desire for a dealer in Utah. I was ready to buy a TE570 from RimRock Racing around the time of the Piaggio screw-over. Now Rim Rock is gone and we have to choose between Reno, GrandJunction, Boise, or Vegas. The Husky 610/570s were the fastest bike in the desert out here. Now I want a new 610 DS but can only drool over the pictures. Don't want to go out of state for parts and service.

If you do want a husky 610 they have them in Remo for $6199 + the other charges that dealers stick you with.

Please send Husky an email telling them we need dealers.

Grab your self a Husky & never look back

The problem is there is no dealer service without a dealer. I know I can order parts from a hundred dealers but if I need warranty service or major service I will have to travel.

I read an interview about a year ago I think by the head of MV Agusta who said they planned to keep the Husky an exclusive, highly sought after item, like the Ferrari but hoped to have a full line of (factory) aftermarket parts available. There's 2 dealers in my state both about 100 miles away from me which kind of sucks but I'm still 100% I bought the best bike for my purposes. It would be nice to see at least a few dealers in each state.

Yes for warranty service or something major you will have to travel, but then again a similar Jap D\S has no warranty Ooops what was I thinking, there is no Jap D\S that would be considered compareable to the Husky's

P.S. very, very few have needed major service from what I've heard
