As usual great taste in stickers. Since we can't get one of those over here I've been sniffing
a little at one of these....



The reports seem favorable and they are priced reasonable too. I'm struggling with the
idea I don't use my KLR and the Tenere is so versatile I don't know if I would use it at all.
Small tank too. Hmmm, maybe just a little bored.

Look at the top of the engine. From what I've been told you have to have a least one
red head in your life.

If you want one of these better hurry up, the firesale is already running. From 2014 on husqvarna will sell only rebranded KTMs in husaberg colors.

Don't worry it is already history, Its the F650 single from BMW thats made in china with a touch of red color to give it some italian flair

That's true. I have a friend Husaberg dealer that told me a few days ago that Husaberg as a brand is gonna end but Husaberg bikes will come to the market with Husqvarna name...but they're still husabergs bikes.

Seriously though, the last few bikes I've bought part of the color consideration has been how well it photographs....and somehow I still end up with black bikes which can be a real hassle trying to expose properly.

?? I though KTM owns Husaberg and BMW owns Husqvarna? Or have I been asleep at the wheel?

BMW sold off Husqvarna nearly a year ago... To KTM's CEO...
