there's the cradle frame. I was beginning to think they hadn't done the frame at all!
not a real bike yet
fair enough. I had heard the frame would be different on this bike, are they not doing it yet? sticking with the BMW style truss, for now?
The DC bikes seem to be just the re-decaled BMWs from what I can tell and I am no expert by any means.
I have seen no naked photos to be able to tell more but the frame sure is a bmw thingy.
I want to see a real husq though, it is becoming a little Jingcheng hehe
I hope they are developing it.
maybe there is more to it
edit: larger photos
What Husky / BMW did is too simple !!!
They put only new stickers on the bike, no new design, no inovations !
Old bike- bahhh
so on speedbrain site they said this
"The team will race as the official Husqvarna factory team with their TE 449 RR, derived from the race bike developed around the BMW G 450 X and the engine of the Husqvarna Enduro TE 449, meaning the experience and development from past events and the Dakar 2011 will be continued with a successful setup."
now time for disection
I would prefer the steel frame ..
That's just beautiful.
Hope they get there soon.
A BMW with Husky graphics just doesn't do it for me, even though it's a successful platform
Where, when and how much please Mr Husqvarna.
Where has this image come from?
Is "J.Brasils" an Amatuer creative person that has done this in some 'spare time', or is this a real concept that is being displayed as a prelude to commerially available new kit?
More info please
I think you mean Herr Husqvarna now
Although this looks kind of 'Cool', the more you study it, the less practial it seems to be.
Especially when you consider that there does not appear to be any extra fuel added to the front, meaning that the standard tank of 8.5 litres, would require around 20 litres of fuel in the rear tanks.
Also, that fairing would have to be easily removed in order to access the air filter
This bike does not exist in reality. Only in the computer. The fairing and side panels are so horribly rendered that it screams Microsoft paint.
The above is fake. Here is the real deal that the Speedbrain-Husqvarna team is riding:
Of Corse it’s fake.

This is a design “concept” of how it could look, if we ever got the funding to build it. <o></o>
It does not represent the finished bike in regards to tank volume and so on.<o></o>
Some of things that have to addressed in a finished bike are :<o></o>
At least 29 Liter gas tank.<o></o>
Extended rear swing arm.<o></o>
Easy service access.<o></o>
and so on..<o></o>
Note, that this bike would be based on the actual TE-449. Not the G450x, with a Husqvarna engine and a new sticker set! ;-)<o></o>
And as I said “Dreaming, again!!”, but who knows……<o></o>
Mixed suppliers of parts, BERRT, Bianchi Prata, SpeedBrain and others.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
A lot of parts is my own design like instrumentation, carbon/Kevlar crash-plate with water tank and so on…<o></o>
Altitude testing (3,000m) in Chile for the Dakar! The bike is a TE449 with a 34 litre tank kit prepared by the Chilean importer.

Looks like an ali fabricated tank? Is it 34L or combined with standard tank 34L?
... either way, it's still a fair bit of weight on the back.
