The new 2014 huskybergs.

As Husaberg and Husky converge I concerned that our choices for dirt orientated motorcycles will diminish.

I had heard that Husky might bring back the Husaberg 70 degree motor. Which by it's self isn't such a big deal. But for those of us who value the 570 cc displacement it's a great compromise between the KTM 690 and the smaller 510 cc KTM.

Not a 175/200cc 2-stroke, or a street legal model among them. I guess that I am stuck with KTM.
The 125cc 2-stroke seems odd. I would have suspected a 150cc engine these days.
It is nice to see Husky offering a Big Wheel version of the 85.

Sort of sad. Husqvarna made some great street bikes (Nuda 900 and TR650) but they used BMW technology, alas, probably won't be seeing any sign of them anymore.

It's not like there is a multi-page thread about this already.
