Team KEVA tests the 450 Husa Rallye's...

Well, since the bikes were finished in january... there's only been the opportunity to "test" them on the frozen
grasstrack test at the workshop outside of Hässleholm...

But on the weekend Charlie, Kent and I headed down to Revinge field (an ex-military testing field) to give the
suspension settings a sorting out...



Even my little bloke - Cam's - followed along on his lil' JR50 to give the boys some hurry up...


Kent warms up the bikes... it was fine and sunny (minus zero degrees) in southern Sweden this February morning...


Kent and Charlie... ready to roll...


Charlie punts across some whoops... about as close to the desert as we can get in Sweden at this time of year...


Kent rolls it thru some whoops... with 20 liters on board...


The Husa's are surprisingly agile and responsive... even with the extra capacity of the rear tanks on...


Time for some adjustments...


Charlie and Kent spent a few hours on the bikes, getting a good balance for the handling and suspension settings...
Marocco will have everything from soft sand dunes, to fast open stretches of rocky desert to cope with...
all in all we're pretty happy with what we have so far...
