From http://www.husqvarnamotorcycles.com.au/news-article.asp?aid=97&t=Husqvarna+annou

The TR 650 Terra will be available from mid-December, followed by the more road based TR 650 Strada in January 2013.
An extensive range of genuine Husqvarna accessories and special parts will be available from Husqvarna dealers when the TR 650 Terra and TR 650 Strada hit the showroom floors. Customers can tailor bikes to their needs with hard panniers, top cases, soft rear bag, off-road foot pegs, aluminium bash plate, hand guards and a windshield to name only a few of the options available.
TR 650 Terra and TR 650 Strada will be on display at the upcoming Australian Motorcycle Expo in Melbourne 23 – 25 of November. This will be the first time the new models will be at any show in the southern hemisphere.

Dealer rang me today to confirm 2nd week of Dec arrival. Funnily this coincides with the start of my hols

Terra vs strands

Are the only differences between these bikes the wheels? I keep reading what a good bike the Terra is on the road, but shouldn't we buy the Strada if that is the priority.
Maybe Husky might see the merit in providing a little more suspension travel for the Terra in Mk 2? (I hope this model lasts longer then the X-Challenge.)
I also hope they review forums like this....
(apology for title, stupid IPad auto spelling....)

Wheels and suspension I believe and a little bit of trim also the Strada has ABS but the Terra does not (in Australia).

I don't believe it's the initial cost so much but the perception that KTMs are fragile and expensive to service and maintain. Whether that is correct or not I don't really care they have never interested me as bikes to own.

Went to the Motorbike expo today, had a look at the Terra. I'm exited, looks much better in the flesh. Seems sleek and it's comfortable to sit on. The throttle is incredibly easy to twist, I'd expect no forearm ache holding it open on long road stretches. I can get my toes on the ground comfortably, but have to see what happens in my MX boots.

The bike looks sleek and light, didn't feel top heavy so I can't work out where the weight is - other than down very low.

I really liked it.

We need you to knock over a thousand klms on the weekend you get it so you can give us ride report.

The reviewer above is correct about the side stand though - it springs back far too easily and I reckon a few owners will find their nice new piece of machinery having a little rest if they don't park carefully.

Oh no, Bob you were there and I missed you.

I noticed the Terra is oil in frame with the filler cap very easy to get at on the steerer tube. I like that.
