Hadn't seen this yet, thanks for the link. My timing was off with the 630 give away, but if they bumped the BM motor's performance and kept the longer service interval all they would need is a large(r) petrol capacity and some decent accessories to have a real gem. I was so tempted at the value of the 630 deal, but being honest with myself in reference to the miles I ride it would have been very restrictive and/or expensive to realistically mod it. I just hope the Father Land bean counters don't get pissy and keep Husky on too short a leash so as not to make the BM offerings look 2nd rate. I see a huge win, win or perfect opportunity wasted w/o much likelihood of anything in between.


Retired and loving it.

I have been looking for these new Husky streetbikes on the US website.  It doesn't appear that we will get any of them - is that right?  No Nuda 800cc, or this thumper?   Sad
