Little known in the USA, SWM is trying to break into the US adventure bike market with its small lightweight SuperDual models. The SuperDual X is the more offroad version, while the SuperDual T is more road oriented.
Both the X and the T are powered by a fuel-injected 600cc liquid cooled DOHC single cylinder engine, based upon the Husqvarna’s TE630 enduro bike, mated to a 6-speed transmission.
Suspension travel on both machines is 8.3 inches in front and 8.7 inches in the rear. With a 5-gallon fuel tank range should be excellent. SWM claims a dry weight of 372 pounds, so wet weight should come in somewhere around 415 pounds. The wheel setups of the X and T models are different. The SuperDual X comes equipped with a 21″/18″ wheels for more aggressive Dual Sport riding, while the model T is equipped with a more pavement oriented 19″/17″ wheel combination.
SWM will also have a full complement of branded ADV accessories with seat choices, a larger windscreen, luggage racks etc.
Pricing is set attractively at $8,995 for both the SuperDual X and SuperDual T models. The bike has been released in Australia already, so it will be interesting to see how the US version fares here.
