Have been following this thread with interest, this looks like a pretty cool new bike I must say and the price is right!! I'd love to take one for a spin, seems to be winning a few wa locals hearts! If its as smooth as everyone says, that will make for comfortable touring, nothing worse than a loud vibrating thumper on the tarmac. I wouldn't be too concerned about the 190mm suspension travel, my 990 has only 200mm each end and it went down the power line track last weekend with ease. Only place it was of concern was the deep woops. The Tenere I used to own had only 210 from memory and that was piloted down the canning stock route reasonably successfully. It's all about line selection, and clearance under the bash plate (which this bike looks to have). Its not an enduro bike but you dont need an enduro bike for cross country travel. If safari bring out a big tank it'll only increase interest in this bike by adv riders including me, as 650cc and 25 litres, with an option of carrying more in the panniers makes it a long rang (ie CSR) and remote region prospect, as well as giving it proper radiator protection. My 990 with the standard tanks doesn't have the range, and with the big tank makes it too unwieldy for the dune country. My 500 doesn't have the carrying capacity or long service interval. It's great the world is going to fuel injection, so much more economical. Now I that i own two fuel injected bikes I'd find it hard to go back. That large back fender extender would have to be turfed....saw that alternate in the thumpers thread for the TR offered by R&G that looked much better.

Concerns - air box position and paper filter, but someone will solve that I'm sure.

My 2c.....

With BMW selling Husqvarna to KTM, does that mean they'll be dropping the Terra?

I have read a bit on this.

From what I can gather no one knows for sure.

I think the Terra is very different to the 690 - it is a smooth 50/50 bike whereas the 690 is enduro.

The only consistent news is that it looks like the Nuda is going as it doesn't fit their target audience and Terra has a place in the lineup

Rumour: No more 2 strokes from Husky
Rumour: No Rotax engine supply
My Favourite Rumour: New engine made under license by Whoflungdung Tractor & Machinery Co China and then sent to the Royal Enfield factory in India for assembly. Bikes then shipped to Iraq for distribution throughout Halal Delicatessens world wide.

Its a wait and see kinda deal i guess

I read somewhere that the Terra has accounted for roughly 35% of Husky sales at the moment. Thats not bad at all.

Whatever the future. I'm digging mine. Its my tourer.

Got almost 10,000 on it now. no real issues oil changes are bit fiddly.



Goes well. Now Ive got a E09 and MT21 combo it wanders a bit at 130+ on the tar, but I s'pose thats what you get.

Parts to be available for all 2013 models. Terra/Strada looking more attractive now?

I got caught out on a country run and had to use a full tank of std unleaded fuel. Happy to report the Terra had no issue and performed as if I had filled it up with premium.
