That would mean they would have to sell a dozen or so to pay for the equipment. I don't blame him under those circumstances. I'm out for this thing. Looking elsewhere for my next dualsport.

Just wondering if anybody followed up on this.... Husky only diagnostic machine?

I believe the HP2 has a 21" tubeless cross spoke rim. My old 1993 BMW r100gs had a tubeless spoked 21" rim also.

I should have never looked at this thread. Now I want one.

I hate you photoshop guys! Got me again!! ;-)
Like your work! Hopefully Husky will plagiarize ;-) Would be pretty cool though that along w/your tank expansion someone could make a larger volume underseat fuel cell to make up the weight lost when going to a single exhaust (F800GS style). Would keep it clean, balanced and could ride forever! Now, can you PS some TKC's or Scout 60's on it!

That is correct, specific diagnostic tool, well actually since it's a BMW engine it's BMW diagnostics.

You are right and there are some 21" tires out there still that can be run without tubes.

Got to see the 650 Terra in the flesh today...





I'm in love! The price is not as good as in the USA, here it is around $10,000, just $500 less than the Sertao, but I'd take it any day over the Sertao.

It's lighter and thinner than my XT660R! It has 10 more hp, probably gets better MPGs and the suspension is better...



I'm now trying to make up my mind whether it makes sense to replace the XT with one or not.

It does not take much of one to help.

Now if you want the screen to take the wind away from your helmet, then yea it takes a honker.
I have a 690R with the touring screen and a wr250r with a Cee-Bailey screen which is a little more aero and taller than the KTM. Both completely protect my chest. I get a little wind on the tops of my shoulders. The Yamaha is better than my old 950A was. The KTM is a ltlle tougher on the slab for long hours, but it's the SEAT!

Sheesh...

Is this true?

I sure hope not.
I was really hoping the Marelli EFI meant they didn't have this BMW crap.

I suspect it is a specific diagnostic tool. How else are they to capture codes and imput upgrades to the map.

It will be Husqvarna specific. There are enough changes from the BMW Rotax that will require different mapping.

Is it required? probably. Every service on my F800 requires a hook up. Both to read codes and send the data to Spandau if requested.

I doubt if that is any different than any modern fuel injected bike with an ECU.

No one has mentioned that the exhaust tips are shaped as the husky crown :)
