    The first mod any off-roader is going to make is getting rid of the twin cans. My guess is the weight will be close enough to the 610 so as not to be an issue. A couple pounds for the top end and hydro clutch. I'd still buy one over a 690 or anything else out there.
    I just wonder if the torque curve will be as linear as the 610. Some people complain about the lack of "hit" in the power band. The smooth power delivery is one of the things that make this bike (610) so great for me.

    BTW, haven't seen anyone post this:

    Might be a cool mod for the SM guys or anyone wanting the ultimate bling factor. They're really stepping up this year with the Special Parts.

    The 'Real' weight of the 610 FI is 149 kgr (329 lb) with a full tank vs 140kg empty. The 630 will be 10kgs heavier and 5-10 hp more powerful.

    I believe the engine will be very 510-like since it uses the same top, maybe a little bit smoother. I am pretty sure it will smoke the 610 everywhere but where every single kg of weight counts. Husqvarna has proved for the last 2-3 years that they have their shit together and I personaly expect the 690 will have very serious competition.

    Wrong.

    "I checked the sight glass to make sure the correct amount of oil was in the engine/tranny and then checked the coolant overflow bottle. Spot on!
    I emptied the gas tank and weighed the bike; it weighed 296 pounds. The bike was stone stock with no mods, fluids topped up, and the gas tank was empty. After filling with 3.25 gallons of gas, the TE weighed 317 pounds."​

    From this guys web site:

    He is very meticulous.

    Actually, my figure was 139 kgs (dual electronic scales) but rounded it to 140. His figure is 134.5 kg. I think 3.5 kgs of difference are not something to argue about, especially since it is well withing accuracy limits.

    Yep,

    Th TE630 is listed as 330 pounds wet - while the SM is 350 pounds.

    If the TE610 is 317 and the TE630 is 330 then an after market single pipe should be good for at least 5 pounds - they will be with in single digit weight of each other.

    That last list of specs says the TE630 is 330#s without gas and 348#s for the SM. :huh It would make more sense if those were wet weights.:scratch

    I like your numbers Flashman!!

    I read "curb" weight - not sure if that is with or without gas.

    I'm hoping that it's a misprint...God knows they have trouble with translating.

    If you guys are like me, when you get a new bike, first it gets lighter...aftermarket exhaust plus removal of a few things.

    Then you gradually start bolting on doodads (racks, handguards, skidplate) and it gets heavier:cry

    I quit weighing my 610 when I hit 360 pounds on a certified scale. It was probably 375 at the end of our time together.:loco

    Nailed it. Still nowhere near the weight those GS folks haul around, then they still have a bike under all that cool gear. :1drink

    Curb weight should mean with the gas tank full.

    Once our beloved 610's are gone where do we go from here?
    Not sure I want a heavier bike for single track, that requires more maint.
    I love mine now it is the best of both worlds but is already heavy enuff for the single track here in NE.
    What's out there is closest to what we have now?
