there was an absolute gorgeous '05 650 berg at the dealer today, on consignment. all 'tarded up, yellow/blue, graphics kit, with full Akro Ti exhaust, polished rims (5" rear), sliders everywhere. 1000 miles. very clean bike.

seems the owner had second thoughts about it and is taking it to Hong Kong with him instead. too bad - I'd think it would get stolen there.

I love my 650 Berg, but just saw a new 570 at the dealer today-WOW! Makes the 650 look like a turd. But I'll stick with the turd, the new ones are SO expensive, but look to be worth it.

I have an '09 570 and love it. I'll see if I can find the pics tomorrow and post. Being a KTM guy I had to ditch the yellow and go with blue and orange. Looks pretty good but too much like Yamaha. I'll be going to white with blue and orange soon.
The bike has TM designs chain guide, EE rotor guard and rad guards, aluminum skid plate, Scotts w/ UBM, Fastway F5 pegs and FIT2 hand guards, carbon fiber head pipe guard, Leo Vince slip on, slave cylinder guard, frame guards, map switch, Pro Taper woods high bars, black powder coated triple clamps, soft seat foam, all of the Blue Bling from Husaberg, suspension from MX-Tech, and full PG graphics kit.

I love this bike!!!

So, have any of you owners riden both the 09' 570 AND 450 Burgs?

I wonder about the differences as they are so close weight and price wise...

I am not at all a small dude except in the inseam department.

I can't afford one new but I will sure be watching the used market.

the differences are in displacement (120cc) and weight (.5kg) only.

see http://www.husaberg.com/fileadmin/us...nical_data.pdf

there are short/stock/tall seat options. my dealer swapped me a tall seat straight across. I'm sure he'd do similarly for a short seat.

you should watch craigslist and www.husaberg.org for them. eBay only has speculators.

here's one today in Louisville -> http://louisville.craigslist.org/mcy/1139963525.html

there are more, including a demo 450 in Boise. Hiya MotoKat!

find them here http://tinyurl.com/ccvpye

it mounts easily. simply a matter of removing the upper race from the steerer tube. Ohlins provides a replacement race which includes a tang that faces rearward. you mount a stud to it which engages the damper. the damper has a captive bolt which replaces the top cap on your triple clamp. you screw it back together and it all works.

I never tried the Scott's so cannot compare.

there are two adjustments: damping rate and return-to-center damping. I've been using them in the middle. on the street, having the damper in place makes the front end much less "busy". it doesn't flop nearly so easily. makes the bike seem more heavy in terms of steering - not that it's hard to steer, just less prone to change when you encounter bumps.

I saw a couple of nice 'used' 2009 Husabergs today Fisherman. Tasky's is selling both a 570 and a 450 at a discount after using them for their demo days.

You listening Fisherman?
