I was kinda hoping to see the bikes in the background

Having said that I kinda like the way it covers the exhaust. Very neat for a sm

Bit of a write up here;

http://transmoto.com.au/2014-husqvarna-insights/

a bit of a teaser to buy the mag.... The local dealer said that he was expecting them in early Jan. Will be interesting to see....

...and its interesting that the new 450rr has a linkage as opposed to the pds on the enduros.

The 701 is a...
Is it really a prototype if most of the parts we see are already on a bike that has been in dealers for a long time?

The TM looks real sexy and anorexic just like the ladies that troll Milan during fashion week. Have we ever seen a finished TM at this show? Those pipes will make it super easy to wheelie I am sure.

The KTM customer graphics kit has to be the worst piece of design to ever come out Mattighofen. On a 30K bike?! I know it will be the first thing to go on all customer bikes but seriously this is the best they could do? Seriously?

The beta looks lovely, although a little overweight in comparison to other offerings.

On another note, anyone know who ended up with the bordone protos?

In the latest issue of Transmoto they mention that Husky will not have a factory team at the 2014 Dakar, I wonder if that means they'll be there in 2015?

I believe the old 450RR had a linkage also.

Not sure why but to me this looks great. Loving the bikes with the exposed aluminum frames. Slick looking bike

No idea what happened to them (frames back to Fernando Prades and engines to TM?), but PKL are their natural evolution

It changes the power curve and increases torque ,
