Bad time to buy a Husaberg?
I've got my eye on a street-titled '09 Husaberg 570, but the impending murder of the brand has me wondering about parts availability, going forward.
Does anybody know if those engines shared parts, or if there are enough of them out there to make for a good used parts supply network? I'd hate to end up with a bike that can't be fixed...

They're Ktm's, you shouldn't have problems getting parts. Heard nothing but good things about those 570's, go buy it.

The 70* Bergs only have a short list of "unique to them" parts:
Some of the plastics
That's all I can think of. The rest, including the engine/gearbox internals are all KTM as far as I know.
If a Berg/KTM expert knows different/better/of important stuff I didn't list, I'd like to know too.
It's a great time to buy a Berg, they are highly undervalued. The closest bike to the 570 Berg is a 500 KTM which have much higher asking prices.
