Default Husqvarna

     

I think Husqvarnas are gnarly looking. Check out the new tc250 four stroker


I would love to have one, even though i have no clue on how they perform.
They look sick imo.

Gnarly is a good description of how that looks! Where's the kick starter? I KNOW they don't have ONLY electric start! Tell me it isn't so. Or maybe Husqvarna's have always been on the left side. I've never seen one.

the kick starter is on the left side on huskeys. They changed it, but the chian used to be on the right and the resr disc brake used to be on the left.

I dont like it...The shrouds are just plain rediculous and The front fender looks like someone nose bombed a concrete slab then duct taped it back on...From the footpeg and back it looks awesome. They need some major work on the front end. That rear fender is sweeet! I wonder if I could modify it to fit a yami...

MxMike Rating: 6

1 2 3 4 5 _ 7 8 9 10

Edit: After further research i raise my rating to a 7 because it has the "easy holeshot device" thing that most if not all of the pro riders use and thats pretty thoughtful to have stock on a bike.

Ditto what Mike said.

I would love to own one but I can't see what the engineers were thinking when designing the plastics.
Good luck trying to fit more than 1 numbers on those sideplates!

Ok...I guess I am going to have to throw down some schooling here on a little Husky History.

Everybody knows they were the stuff back in the seventies. They were at the time made in Sweden. The kind of dropped off the map (In America) due to lack of funding. They were the first to start making decent 4 strokes (Sorry KTM guys, but it's true) when they came out with the 510 in the mid 80's.

In '87 they were bought by Cagiva (who was owned by Fast by Ferracci) They started to make a good comeback through the 90's' but they lost their American Distributer. They have since gotten bought by a new distrubuter and are coming back with a vengence.

To dispell any misconceptions:

Husky's now have ALL kick starts on the Right side...Husky's are now either Electric Start or Kick or both if you want.

They came out with new 4 stroke motors that have gobs of technology and are incredible...

The Big 5 Just became the Big 6...

If parts availability wasn't a problem, I'd seriously consider looking into their bikes. If I remember correctly, Cycle World rated their '04 TE 450 as the best open class enduro bike for 2004.
