...and law states that discontinued models must be supported by the manufacturer for a minimum of 10 years.

So, there will be parts available for a looooooong time

The scuttlebutt is that Husky North America is now advertising $1000 off Strada, $800 off Terra, and $2500 off all other models.

I haven't seen it on paper, but it has been dealer confirmed by a few people.

I think he must be talking about automobile emissions parts warranty. For motorcycles the EPA warranty period is five years/30,000 kilometers. Which works out to less than 19,000 miles.

I see that quoted a lot, so I have searched. I find a lot of opinions but no law other than the: Magnussen Moss warranty act and it certainly does not say that. Yes emissions are different.

He could have waited a respectable time before posting that, after all I said it wasn't true just 6 post before.

I bought a TE 630 which was a one year bike....no worries.

I bought a TR650 Terra and have ZERO concerns about warranty, dealer support, or anything.

You all worry too much. Potential buyers should jump at the chance to get one while they can, if indeed they aren't on the roster for next year.
I'm betting they will be, in some form or another. Might have orange plastic on it

That alone will increase the price at least $1000.

Good have him show the law. I would like to read it. If it is law it should not be that hard to find on the Internet. All you find are opinions, on both sides, including some that claim to be experts, I can't find it.


Maybe it is buried in the magnussen Moss act. It is voluminous. I am usually pretty good at lookig up law. The only thing that I have found is under the law that created the National Highway Transportation Act has given them authority to ID safety hazards and issue recalls for repair or replacement. That law can go back 10 years.

We all know car dealers don't lie.

No offence to your relation, but I'm from Missouri when it comes to this stuff.

I've been trying to catch up with the contents of this thread, especially after I saw the abrupt switch to discussing the potential demise of these bikes. I was really pumped about them after reading Rugged Exposure's RRs. I went out and read up on this sale, and from what little I've read it sounds like this fellow wants to double sales of Huskies, etc. How would killing off these bikes, arguably the most buzzworthy bikes to hit the d/s market in awhile, be good for doubling sales?

I agree it may be better to have them away from BMW, judging only by my experiences with my dealer here in OKC...who is no longer around, which leaves maybe one in Tulsa. We have NO Huskie dealer in Oklahoma, yet I'd still be inclined to get one of this now that I am thinking of getting into this style of riding.

But...I know it will take a lot of work to build a network that can compete with Kawis and the like.

Has anyone had any issues that required the use of a dealer in the first place and were showstoppers? Are there any super dealers for these bikes who could satisfy online demand for parts?

Can't find a used Strada or Terra anywhere. That could be a good thing.

Picked up my Terra yesterday and so far love it. While at the dealer I expressed concern with its future and he showed me an email that he recieved from Husqvarna stating that it will continue to operate as it did under BMW, just now under KTM. As for the Terra specifically, I'm sure that it will be supported for a long time to come in its current form. I thought long and hard before purchasing the Terra and I think the pros far out way the cons.
