New G650GS-powered Husqvarna street bike unveiled

A new Husqvarna 650cc single-cylinder road bike has been unveiled today. The Strada uses the engine from BMW's G650GS. It has been shown as a 'concept' at the Paris motorcycle show but is set to go into production late next year. It's a street bike with off-road capabilities according to Husqvarna. Official power and torque figures have not been released but Husqvarna says the...

Love the looks of it...if it has enough fuel autonomy in that small tank, I might be a buyer for a 2nd bike to have fun off road.

I like these new models husqvarna are coming out with, but I prefer this one over the nuda. And if it is similar price and fuel consupmtion, it'll be good on the bank account as well as fun. I need to do my full test soon, its killing me seeing all these nice big bikes, and I'm stuck on a crappy Yamaha sr125 :-(

Far too heavy. I'm always baffled as to why/how they manage to add so much weight to these types of bikes.

I'd much rather have a KTM 690SMC-R at 142kg with 66hp. Just doesn't make sense to go for the Husky unless you're really on a budget.

This is still 100lbs less then many street bikes. Sure 44hp isnt breathtaking, but being light and slim can compensate on the fun factor. I had a Triump Scrambler that made 59HP and it was plenty to have fun, even after having a Speed Triple just the year before...

If it sells for around 8000$ in Canada, it's on my list for sure.

As others have said: too heavy.

When I see things like this I wonder why Suzuki still hasn't made a euro emissions-compliant replacement for the DR-Z400.  It would knock this overweight Husky into a cocked hat.

tempting

Hmmm, tempting. You think thats heavy - get a bandit and fill it with fuel (if you can afford to). Nice looking bike. If Nichols Parsons gets one then I will. It would need a baffle-free exhaust, unless Brussels stops that.

Husky Street Bikes?

At what point does BMW start competing with itself?

everyone keeps mentioning ktm's, the thing i think your forgetting or haven't owned one is, that they're competition bike, they have to be serviced none stop, parts and servicing for them aren't cheap, on the road, you have to think about your journies and whether your going near a petrol station. This bike is obviously meant for the street and will hopefully not have the same problems, and being from bmw will hopefully be reliable (again would be nice if you have owned a ktm). I think it's a good idea, you see all the young lads want this sort of bike nowadays, and after just passing their tests should be cheap to buy insure and run
