A short movie with the husaberg 450 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO3x3Cf7SoI
As soon as we know, so will you!
Looks good, got any details re fuel capacity ?? or other close up photos of nav tower, rear tank etc etc
Some info aboat the bike.
The tanks was supposed to contain 29-30 L and the digital 3D drawings told us so. When its made we have lost almost 10% and now its 11.5 rear / 7.2 right / 8.3 left. 27 L is ok with me but if you are bad on navigation you probably need som extra? This Dakar (11) i never used all the fuel with my old 30L Husaberg. It was far from empty, allways 10 l extra every day(5 days of racing only).
The underslung exhaust is made to fit 450 bike and need some modification to fit 570. If people want 570 exhaust i can produce it also. The exhaust is 1.5 mm and will resist abuse very well but the wight is not to compare with titanium of course.
The fuelpump is located under the cylinder. Its a Kehin EFI pump and the regulator is husaberg cut down and hidden behind the radiator. This is good i think but its a little expensive pump. Its now possible to have as many fuelfilters as you want. The pump/fuel will never get hot. I have to change the molding tools if i would have husaberg fuelpumb/regulator in one of the fronttanks. This kitt is primary made to me and my needs and any changes is very expensive. Puuuh... the money flyes.......
The navigation tower is similar to the KTM tower with 4 vibration brackets at the MD plate.
The attachemnet to steering tower is welded at my 2 bikes but is supposed to have raddesigns device later on.
I use VisionX and a HID lamp on the race bike but the practisbike have 2 VisionX lights.
The tower have all alectricial on the inside with fuses easy to reach.
Fairing is quit similar to the KTM but change in almost every detail. I hope they dont get pissed ?
Its smaller and not so wide.
The air filter have more air intake but is not to open.
I have made an new oilfilter cover making it possible to attacke a oil cooler. I use KTM but its far to expensive.
I post some pictures later today.
Sorry, sweet bike but it's too many cc's, lites class is limited to 385cc.
Thomas, as we stated last year good luck and thanks for sharing your insight here with us. Thanks also for the details on your bike.
See Thomas' 2012 Dakar bike here (perhaps the training bike?)
Not green enough for the race bike
I'm thinking it might end up being black...?
No army sponsorship this year?
It will be similar to the Husaberg grafics. No black exept the center/top piece of the fairing that i will keep carbonfiberisch.
i will have some cammo so i feel secure and confident
I´ll keep the Husa look to flirt with the bosses in Austria
2013 is one big goal and i have to get better with sponsor /found raising to be able to train betwen the Dakar´s.
To morrow its a new test day
Actually its better than ever!
Then howecome I don't see any machine guns mounted on your handelbars?
Never watched James Bond? You cant see them, hidden all over the bike.
(finally i got to use these smilies!)
Now, did he say he´s "aiming" for top 10?
I notice there are two threaded inserts in the back of the rear Safari tank. Are there any brake lights that conveniently line up with this spacing or is there a dust light this was designed for? Any idea if Aqualine had something in mind for these holes? I might move my brake light up there.
We have used it to mount both a tool tray & dust light or just the dust light it self
Hi i've just entered the tuareg rally on my 570 and was just wondering what gearing you are using ?
As i'm sure i read a 15 on the front but cant find where i read it !!
For the Sandblast Rally moto I am giving 14/52 a try on my 450 berg. I mostly use the bike for tighter technical riding and the 13/52 combo was good for about 70 mph. I figured I'd play it safe and go one up in the front as I will be in a lot of deep sand. On a 570 15 might be fine...look forward to hearing what others ran in other rallies for gearing.
Riding my 450 with a 13/48 combo in sand. As I told Seth, I think it could pull a 14/48 if needed.
Sounds like a scary topspeed!
