SWM - Speedy Working Motorcycles (brand)

Anyone see this news from EICMA? Seems to be the coolest thing no one reported (almost) -

http://www.motorcycledaily.com/2014/...comment-271308

I found a ton of info and posted it in the comments.

Lots of awesome singles and some look pretty slick. The SuperDual definitely looks to be a Husky Terra. They seem to be building essentially pre-KTM Huskies and other variants at lower prices. For instance

I like the scrambler!

The scrambler is pretty cool looking....it matches the image of a motorcycle that's been in my brain since I was a kid, complete with drum brake!

They did say they would first hit Europe, then Asia, then South America, then, you know, North America last. May try to see if they'll let me import a few.

Also, it is true, it is an TE630, a TE310, a TE510 and the SM450. I think the air cooled bikes are semi-original though. Not sure who builds those engines.

I like the name. SWM has history. Good to see Husky come back as something. They have been building nice stuff.
It'll be curious to see if they hit the US. I'd guess not.

Old 440 enduro. Probably damn rare.

Interesting, I thought Gas Gas bought the tooling and stuff for the old Husky enduro engines (250, 310, not sure about the 450 and 510 though).

I think I saw that SM630 clone over a year ago (on the interweb).

Just checked... the brand was Shineray, and it looked the same as the SWM.

SWM is an old Italian brand name that has been resurrected. Although the bikes are being built in Italy, the investment has come from Shineray.

GasGas did buy the rights to the 250/310 x-lite engines and they have already stuffed it into one of their chassis', though still a "concept" bike at this point: http://www.gasgasrider.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18487 The SWM "300" appears to be using the <'09 (non x-lite) version.

I can't translate the spec sheet on the 650 cc Super dual.

It's okay, you can just pull up the spec sheet of the Husky TE630.

The curious thing will be the prices. I've seen 5000-6000 Euro, which is almost the same as $5000-$6000 in the US, a bit more, but i don't know if that applies to Husky designed models, since those typically sold for more like $7000-$9000. But if they were to be able to build these older models for less money, then that would be truly awesome.
