Looks interesting for sure. The BMW engine puts out good power from what I read. Non linkage rear ends are just not optimal. Good to see Husky made that change and others to fix problems that surfaced on the BMW.

Looking forward to hearing about this new Husky!

Initial reports are not promising. Cycle World rode it already, and, believe it or not, Ryan Dudek did not have much good to say about it.

Interesting, because Ryan tends to love everything.

The "Italian Huskys" that immediately preceded this bike are great bikes. It would seem they are destined to become classics.

I have to admit, the engine built by Kymco is a turn off...
