From their web site:

"Husqvarna manufactured motorcycles from 1903 to 1987. The operation was then sold to Cagiva of Italy, which was part of MV Agusta Motorcycles S.p.A. In 2007, BMW acquired the motorcycle operation from MV Agusta and HUSQVARNA Motorcycles are today manufactured under license by the BMW Group.
The brand's models, 21 divided into Enduro, Motocross, Supermotard and Dual categories) are all produced in Italy at Cassinetta di Biandronno plant, in Varese province.

I realize I'm part of a very small minority, but that's the sweetest looking 9, 10 or 11 Ducati ever produced. Sooner or later, I hope, one will sit beside the HMs. Gawd.

This is a bit more complicated than your civic being American. Company was actually sold to Cagiva/MV and at that point moved to Italy, where operated as an Italian company in Italy. Sold to BMW, but never moved to Germany, just operates under "BMW license" in Italy. So I 'd say it's a bit more Italian than your Civic is American.

... but I'm just being an a** ... it's all good, this thread is great.

Hate to tell you this, but Husky's have been made in the MV Agusta factory [the old Cagiva factory] for some years now. In fact, when I was at the MV factory last Sept,08, they were just finishing up some engines before BMW [current owners] were moving Husky production across to the other side of the lake where the MV factory is.

You should get one! You cannot begin to imagine how much of a hoot these things are to ride, especially once you have done a wheel swap!

And yes, I am in the Air Force and spent six months of this year down in Afghanistan.

Global production has made it tougher to keep track. aprilia used to make BMW 650cc singles before BMW moved production to Taiwan to save money. aprilia's Rotax motors in the RSV were made in Austria, and the new RSV4 motor is now made in Italy. Husaberg is "Swedish", while Husquvarna is considered "Italian" even though it's German owned.

DRKWNG, I was USAF Reserve from 1994-2005, including 18 months active following 9/11/01. Combat Arms Specialist attached to a SF wing.

F650GS Rotax's were made at BRP-Rotax, Austria. G650GS singles are Chinese made.
