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.
183kgs wet/58hp, compares with 194kg wet/40hp KLR and 166kg wet/46hp DR650.

The Husky will run away from the other too and go a lot further on the same amount of fuel!!

Terra also makes the Tenere look very expensive in comparison!!
