    Not really sure that this is the right way to do this, but had some motivation to check in here today. Saw a yellow Tiger going the opposite direction on Bayside Rd just outside Leonardtown. Turned around and followed for a few minutes, but I was on a no-shit mission, so had to peel off. Had a ADV sticker on the rear so I thought I would check in here and say :wave

    I was on another triple......

    From the Bivouac thread:

    Apparently Husky has been sold to Stefan Peirer, not to KTM

    As already whispered BMW Motorrad sells its subsidiary Husqvarna Motorcycles, KTM but not to the personal business of its CEO Stefan Pierer called Pierer Industries AG. The consequences for Pierers role as CEO of KTM is still unclear and will in the next six time be sought out. It is obvious that the European competition authorities to interfere with this, but also the chance that Pierer abundantly present his position at KTM will resign. For some time Pierer still the CEO of the Austrian motorcycle company, but a large part of the shares therein are sold to the Indian motorcycle giant Bajaj. Purchasing Husqvarna Pierer would potentially enable again completely with a clean slate to start again.

    There will be viewed in the coming months if there is any form of cooperation between KTM and Husqvarna is possible, there is at least already a new model announced at the EICMA 2013 already will be shown

    This morning we reported that KTM is not in the market to buy Husqvarna, this would also not very logical step. For BMW ensures the sale of Husqvarna for substantially losing face. The German company pumped millions into the Italian Husqvarna, but could never make a success of.

    The following chart is from Cross Industries Ltd, the company which Bajaj for almost half owner. It now owns Husqvarna said Pierer Industries AG makes no part of it.




    So if Google translate is to be believed, Peirer sells his remaining shares in KTM to Bajaj and goes forth to resurrect Husky. Makes more sense, especially the part about the European anti-trust authorities

    This is sad. I had hopes that Husky under the BMW umbrella would flourinsh as the BMW small bike division. I was thinking of one for a single track bike. Now that they are stand alone again....it makes me ponder.


    Not that I could afford one in the near future, but a guy can always dream!
