New bike ( Dirty )

Postby RustyAs » Thu Mar 12, 2015 10:43 am

Got myself a new 570 just before Christmas and last weekend was the first time I had a chance to take it out. :x :x :oops: :oops:

I stripped the blinkers, mirrors and tail section of before hand.

We have some Public land near us so my son (KX450 F) went out for a few hours

Absolutely loved the bike!! :kuda: :kuda:

By coincidence the previous owner was my height weight etc so it felt great right from the get go :supz:

Got a bloody flat in the front tyre so had to call it early, but it was a good shake down run :x

I really like the innovative thinking of that engine layout:

I see that Kawasaki are playing with something similar?! Looks to me to be exactly the same?

Husaberg went away from that design back to the standard KTM setup.

Doesn't mean it wasn't a good design though......;)

Husaberg was KTMs development department pretty much.
There is a lot of good ideas that fall the the wayside.
Think the BMW g450 sprocket/swingarm pivot.
husqvarna was purchased by bmw. Husqvarna used it. Then KTM bought Husqvarna and they threw it in the shed and stuck Husqvarna stickers on the berg...
