Still sure the Terra will be my next bike though.

I was kinda hoping that I'd either get used to it or it would break in a bit. Now I get the impression neither is gonna happen.

Question Whish

Will they do a PD/HP2 version?

300mm travel
30 litre tank
Single exhaust

and an all day seat?


Maybe in a years time? Like bm did/does?

Pretty please

===================
In a year we might know some of the 'quirks' of the bike ...

Don't think it really matters in terms of ongoing ownership - the GS donk has been around for over 20 years so there will be an ongoing supply of spares. In a worst case scenario if you grenade your Terra/Strada motor you could always just slot in a second hand GS donk (albeit with a bit less power than the Husky equivalent).

Warin, just buy a terra and put on long suspension yourself.. Safari are already doing the tank. Seat concepts for the seat, and its a matter of time until a single exhaust comes out.

I wish i could have ridden it off-road though, the suspension felt nice on the road, but i really want to know how it feels when you start picking up the pace abit, and the terrain starts getting choppy.

The build quality seems good to me, and the dash is nice, besides being somewhat inaccurate with its fuel economy and engine temperature. Certainly better build quality than the TE610 i owned, and this bike is 2 grand cheaper.

Seems theres no shortage of them, dealer in sydney can get one in within a week.

Nup - support the local seat maker rather than a middle man.
