I have been told that there are rumours around about what it is but I can’t find much at all. So I will ask here. Anybody know anything? Like always with this kind of thread unverified rumour’s are welcome

    One very large (for Husky US) I talked with when I was considering a TE mentioned those rumors and also mentioned a Showa fork replacing the Zoke Shiver. He didn't claim these things as fact.

    Ok so the TE610 is actually 576cc, right? So how big will a 630 actually be?

    Using 'Husky Math' I"m guessing it will be 576cc:D

    How about the KTM math their 690 is a 650 - or what is BMW doing with their 650?

    I like it. The KYB forks are well made and should be quite an improvement over the 'zokes. Will make getting fork parts easy too.

    Only think I don't care for is that silly scooped out seat, but I guess they've gotta accommodate the moto-journos who seem mostly to be midgets with no balance:lol3

    FYI

    The following is from this site- Bikepoint.com.au
    words - Mark Fattore

    Complete with 600cc single-cylinder donks

    If you want to see some real action on the new model front over the next few years, then don't wander too far away from the Husqvarna bunker.

    Under BMW ownership, Husqvarna is playing some serious catch-up after a few years of relative famine, and it plans to release 20 new models over the next three years - with fellow European manufacturer KTM well and truly in its sights.
    The new models are set to straddle a number of platforms, including mini and possibly adventure bikes.

    The Pesaro-based manufacturer, now working out of pristine new corporate and production facilities, will certainly be pushing the proverbial envelope to meet its targets, but the rollout has already started with the updated TE and TC enduro and motocross range (keep an eye on the Bikesales Network for a full launch report), and now we've got word of two more tasty offerings - the SM630 supermoto and TE630 dual-purpose machines.

    The duo were announced at this year's Milan motorcycle show, powered by 600cc, fuel injected single-cylinder engines which are claimed to produce 20 per cent more power than the existing 576cc SM610 and TE610 tackle, which are both sold in Australia.

    In Milan, Husqvarna also unveiled the WRE125 two-stroke enduro bike for kids (the standard WR125 isn't sold in Australia), as well a bigger playground for the littlies in the shape of the CR50 and SM50.

    I sure hope they retained the (very) wide-ratio, 6-speed gear box that's been in the TE610 line since its inception. Both the old left-kick and e-start models had it...hope this one does too.

    Does it weigh 158 kg? As commented on Youtube. If so, kinda heavy!

    Looks like the engine block is the same as 610, with some redesigned side covers? And similar head as in 510.

    Why not see it positive - whatever weight spec they end up with, you can probably shed around 5 kgs pretty easily. The stock pipe sucks on pretty much all street legal bikes anyway. Cats, heavy, too quiet, restrictive etc.
