    So basically rebranded Italian era Husqvarna bikes? I thought Shineray showed some Husky bikes under their own brand (Shineray 630)?

    Neat bike indeed.

    I like the street version better tho. ;)

    Different question, as something puzzles me here:
    Both those bikes have tires mounted in opposite thread direction.

    I suppose it's for the front tire's thread to "bite" the ground when braking.
    But then wouldn't it cause water & mud to just build up right under the front tire in normal forward motion?

    I always thought both tires thread should be in the same direction.

    I don't get it.

    Depend on the tire. On the scrambler Metzeler Karoo 3 and they are correctly mounted.

    So those bikes from eicma 2013 will also be branded swm? Or are some Husqvarna models going to be Shineray? Any idea which markets they plan to sell those bikes in?

    They will not likely make it to the market until 2016 and distribution would likely be limited to Europe.

    BMW left motocross, even though they still retained some inroad with TVS.

    They tried to convert Husky to road bikes and gave up, they should have introduced the BAJA as we can see the DUCATI is going to do real well with its scrambler.




    These SWM are moving in that very popular direction, but in order to beat Ducati or at least take its leavings you need a lower cost option. In that it has to come out of a lowered cost production center. .

    I would suggest that SWM utilize the water cooled engines in bikes that look like the Baja concept and not like the Strada or NUDA.
