    Damn that was a ugly duckling... :fitz
    let's hope it turns out to a swan eventually.

    Wonder what needs to be tested.. not the fairing I hope .

    Oh now this is smart development!! They have gained massive(ly meaningful)* popularity out of their svartpilen and vitpilen, so carrying that headlight design into their version of the mid-size ADV is super smart IMO. So likely the fairing is being tested in this case :lol3

    Seems like it'll be a slightly retro looking 790 ADV S if they continue down the path

    I will trade my 790 on this thing when it comes out, almost for sure.

    I like it. Especially if they have a 19/17 version.

    901? As in the bike where the rumored 890 will debut?

    I love it, but KTM/Husqvarna will never release a fairing like that

    Are you being serious right now? Literally a bored out version of the 790.

    She fugly, no question, but I'll wait till I see it in shiney plastics, graphics AND in an R version which hopefully loses that out-of-a-junkyard 1970's fairing, before I pass judgement.

    I know some guys lovvvve their retro, but I ain't one of them. Gimme 30 yrs :bmwrider

    I love the retro look, if its an (insert ADV word)-pilen I'll be super duper keen

    "dirt arrow" google translates to smutspilen it looks like- that works for me!

    Haha I like that "Smutspilen" Actually translates more like Filtharrow! :D
    Dirt as in 'earth' or 'soil' would be 'Jord'. But smutspilen sounds much more fun :rofl

    This is not a troll but what is the point of Husqvarna? KTM is building essentially the same thing. Not hating just wondering.

    As I tell my Husqvarna-owning friends; it's where they use up the parts that don't pass KTM quality control.

    There are a lot of differences between Husky and KTM on the dirt bike side, especially the suspension and engine tuning. Aside from the looks, I'm guessing the Swede's will do all sorts of interesting stuff.

    I love the idea of a highly developed street single, and I own a husky 501s, but I just can't get past the notion that the pilens look like they got pinched off by a dogs butt. I guess we'll see what they do with this 890 twin.

    Calm down you heathens. The bike is masked so you don’t know what it will look like.

    God, I hope so. I find most Husky models sexier than the KTM versions. Plus they usually come with more cc's :jack
