    Seems like a lot of people will love this bike and that things like it's capability, power, and maintenance intervals will be better than anticipated. The weight listed is pretty good and it looks like there is nearly another 20 lbs that could fall off fairly easily.

    I'm now considering selling my AT for this bike as I think this is what I really wanted in the first place. I Love my AT but I spend much more time offroad than on and this might just be a better option I'll wait and see how Everyone goes with them this year and I might trade up especially if I can get 200mi out of a decent 4gal tank that's if someone makes one.

    Does this bike have a Cush hub?
    Any pictures of the subframe?
    Some of details on this bike are making it look like a good light weight ADV candidate.

    I’m gonna have to take a look at this bike at the dealer...
    Looks like the 500/501 has competition.

    No cush hub. Rubber damped steel rear sprocket. Not sure if the clutch hub has rubber dampers on it.

    what's a "husky beta"? Is that like a fat fish? BTW, they have this new invention for the English language. It's called a "period". Check it out, it's like really gnarly or like whatever. You know? Whatever
