This is called a discussion board where people discuss the merits and warts of motorcycles.

In this forum in this post we discuss the Husky Terra 650.

People have opinions and they want to let their opinions be known.

If you want to only discuss the merits of the Husky 650 Terra then I suggest that you create your own forum board with the stated purpose of only discussing the merits of the Husky 650 Terra.

At some point there will be no discussion as everyone will be holding hands and singing Kumbya.

Dissenting opinions are a good thing.

Discussion is a good thing.

Endlessly regurgitating the sales brochure in the name of discussion is boring.

I don't own either of these bikes, but I like these models, and more importantly the OWNERS seem to be very positive about these new bikes. No, these bikes are not orange and they are not trying to compete with the orange machines. And by no means am I bashing Orange, great bikes with a different perspective and mission.

My WR250r is decried as a pig as well... if I want to reduce weight, I should focus on my fat ass before I sink a dime into lightening my bike, it would benefit me and my riding.... If I lost 40lbs, my suspension would work better and the power increase would exceed a pipe and programer, not to mention the health benefits for me. (Cheaper too)

I like the new nc700x too... that bike gets bashed as well. But guess what owners are loving them too, more importantly they are selling, just like the Terra and CRF. Not only are they selling, they are getting very positive reviews! All 3 represent a segment in the market that was largely ignored, affordable, multi-use, practical yet passionate bikes that want to be ridden everyday...

My WRr falls into that category as well (though a bit pricey new), I put 7000+ on my first season on this bike! More than the last 3 seasons combined on my old xr650l, why? Because the thing just works... No fuss, no muss, just hit the button and go. I can go where ever I want, whenever I want (well wife and kid dependent) The fact of the matter is that I focus on riding more than the bike now, it is a liberating experience.
