BMW did pump money into Husqvarna.... and while I wasn't a huge fan of the G450 based 449/511, they were better performers when revamped into Huskies than they were as BMW's.

The TR650 Terra as the new bargain "upscale KLR", if left in the marketplace, would be a huge seller for the re-entry and cheapskate sector
As a BMW, the 650 wasn't that popular for it's price.

It is strange to think what the lineup will shake out as....Husaberg no longer does the 70degree motor, so they truly are just blue KTM's...and Husqvarna's only non-BMW derived motor is the X Lite in the 250/310.
What happens to it?
KTM has the very popular 350 that the Husqvarna 310R redhead was designed to compete with...
