saw these bikes at the Washington Bike Show in january....absolutely beautiful. If they were street legal,I believe Id be selling some bikes to free up cash and garage space for an SXV 450. I got a chance ti demo ride a Husky TE250 street legal enduro at Mid Ohio this weekend,and have a jones for one ,but Aprilia has trumped them with this baby. My "gotta have "list is getting way out of control.

Crap. I need one a those. Whaddaya mean not street legal? i thought they were going to be? Fonz u look marvelousss...

I love my husqvarna but it doesn't like to go faster than about 65 mph. How fast will RXV 4.5 go before it blows up?

Sounds like you guys need an East-coast off-road tester. I hereby volunteer.

Good old Italian innovation. I'll bet that Soichiro is spinning at the SXV redline right now, seeing his company fall so far behind the curve.



I wonder how the top end durability is going to be. Will it need frequent top end rebuilds like some of the current 4stroke MXers?

Can't wait to see what street machines spin off from this!

Word on the street is the big 4 strikers are egging out bearing supports in the cases. Forget the top end, when you've got all that minimalized smit spinning around at 13 grand it's bound to cause problems. Folks wanted works bike 4 stroke technology, didn't think they'd have to pay for it somewhere.



Won't matter for the guys in pink boots anyway, thay'll just have Tripes wash and service the bike for the next ride.
