amen. although it's a bugger this husky is still so heavy. with the official specs saying 183kg for the terra it weighs a hell of a lot more than a DR650. if it was around the same weight i'd be ordering one now. there's an official husky model ride day this sat (with a terra included) at full throttle in bris between 8.30am and 2pm....
the usa-based thread on this bike is slamming it for having the rotax engines made in china now. but hopefully they'll have good quality control in place. most of our name brand goods are made there now and it's not an issue with western style checks in place.
