The story is more likely to refer to the Nuda than the Terra despite what the journalist wrote. There is no question that the Nuda is finished.

My dealer confirms the Nuda is a complete flop. Terra is not a road bike. Suspect Terra will remain as entry level DS bike with KTM as the high end. KTM now control both markets. Very common business strategy.

I got mine last Saturday and I'm loving it so far. Haven't taken it off road yet but with all these mountains around here it's only a matter of time.

Motorbike Times are full of it. They are way behind the info curve here.
go back, read all the news stories, read Pierer's quotes directly. The Nuda will go ... but NO mention of the Terra. The article makes several other gross errors. They are not a reliable source.

About a week after I bought my TR I read about the change. I am so glad I didn't find out before because I may have balked and not purchased this wonderful bike. I smile every time I get on it. I've owned a bunch of singles and none of them have worked better for my needs than this one.

I am not worried about support from Husky/KTM/BMW or whoever. The past several bikes I've purchased new I have avoided the dealer whenever possible anyway. A bunch of these bikes have been sold so the aftermarket will step up..(already are) with farkles. This bike was relatively inexpensive. I've wasted more $ on bad beer pizza over the years. Not a gamble in my eyes. Glad to own it. YMMV.

he's talked about dropping the nuda the whole time and keeping the terra on (for a few years) as of late. the bmw engine will more than likely drop out however with another shoe horned in. this article is interpreting his words as dumping the terra too however.

guess we'll see. either was it's gonna be a classic & potentially sought after bike like the 630 is.

as far a future 650 Husky, I see that as a 690 but built at a lower (component) price point. KTM wants to compete in the 650 class (& the 690 is $$$). They will using the same base-platform several-model method that VW is all about. Husky will be the working man's KTM.

I expect all future KTMs, Bergs and Husky to use the same frames & motors, but Berg will get all the top shelf & new technology equipment, KTM will get all the quality parts and Husky will get all the solid yet more affordable parts.

THAT'S what I'm talking about! Way to go Trapper

Bottom line.....just ride it, and you'll understand.

Never seen so much BS debating by people who've never thrown a leg over the bike....seemingly in denial of what 100% of the owners have stated regarding their actual experience on it. What's wrong with this picture?

SHUT UP & RIDE!

That's what me Pops often said to me. Been darn good advise! RIP Dad....thanks for the tip.

Way to go RE. This bike and its owners are curiously like KLR owners.

Nice job, RE.


When the time comes to replace my beloved Pig ('02 KLR), the Terra is on the top of the list.

Will be very interested to see what KTM does with the Terra over the next couple years.

Thank you HF for posting this. Too much speculating on what if and what might be. Yep, cut the BS and just ride a Terra or Strada.
You will like it! 500 miles and counting on my Terra.
