New Huskys based on BMW 650

-- More new models from Husqvarna
-- New Husqvarna TR 650 Terra and TR 650 Strada
-- Expected end of 2012
-- By Trevor Hedge

The fruit of Husqvarna's collaboration with BMW has borne more fruit with the impending expansion of Husqvarna's line-up by a further two models, the TR 650 Terra and TR 650 Strada.

Manufactured in Husqvarna's Northern Italian plant, the Terra model is the dual-sport machine while the Strada is a purely road biased offering. In Australia the Strada will be ABS equipped as standard while the more off-road Terra goes without. Both models are braked by a 300mm single front disc and 240mm rear. The Terra model rolls on spoked rims rather than the cast alloys employed on the Strada.

Powered by an uprated version of the single-cylinder 652cc engine BMW have well proven in the G 650 GS, the new Husky TR models also borrow many other components from BMW's most junior dual-purpose offering. Delivering 58hp (43kW) at 7250rpm in Husqvarna guise, the TR 650 machines rev a little harder than the donor engine and deliver 10 more horsepower. A new lighter forged piston bumps up the compression ratio (12.3:1) and much hotter camshafts acting on bigger valves help inject a little more animal into the engine.

Beefy Sachs 46mm forks help control the bumps through a 190mm of stroke. A progressive single-shock, adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping, suspends the rear.

The Strada tips the scales at 168kg dry, the Terra 3kg lighter. Full of fluids those numbers are 186kg and 183kg respectively.

Husqvarna claim a range of 350km from the underseat 14-litre fuel cell.

I'm warming to it, the 650 sticker that is, should look good on the DR.

Could be a good replacement for a 990.

If they are aggressive and price it around 10k I reckon it will be a winner. The G650GS donk is deceptively strong as standard, and this is 10hp up so should be hugely different. I say the normal engine is deceptive as riding it back to back with XT660R the Yamaha engine feels so much more responsive and aggressive, yet I ran back to back acceleration tests and roll ons and there was nothing in it, off the jump the Yamaha has the edge but from there does not pull away from the BMW. So with 10 more hp up top, this engine should be good. It just feels so flat in BMW guise, which like I say really blew me away when doing the acceleration tests on it, as it is a lot more powerful than it feels.

Husky priced the Nuda quite aggressivley in comparison to what BMW charge for the F800R, and if they follow that line you would expect them to price this well. If it is 10k I reckon it will do real well....? Certainly will make DR/KLR650 engines feel pathetically underdone, which of course they are, as they are 15 years old in design.

You must have some weird arse shaped leg Digga.

The header looks slightly more tucked in than the one on the XCH and it never got touched. It was the bit down near the ankle that used to melt things but that is taken care of on this bike too.

Trev, do you know where the fuel cap is?

And when does the TR 900 Terra come out?
