    Factory press release issued by Federica today:

    Friday October 2nd 2009 was an important milestone in the history of Husqvarna Motorcycles: it was the day on which the 25,000th motorcycle was produced in the Biandronno. Northern Italy factory under BMW ownership. The BMW acquisition on 1st October 2007 saw a fresh start for the historic Husqvarna brand and this is another great occasion to celebrate, which comes right after the inauguration of the new Husqvarna Headquarters and R&D Centre opened on September 21st.

    During the ceremony, the President of Husqvarna Motorcycles Rainer Thoma declared: "I am very happy, that we can celebrate another nice event just a few days after the inauguration of our new Headquarters and R&D Center. This underlines the dynamics the company is moving to. Despite 2009 being a difficult year for the whole motorcycle market, we look very positively to the future. We now have the best possible circumstances to create and to build new, attractive products at the highest level of quality and performance" .

    Giuseppe Manacorda, Husqvarna Plant Manager, also commented enthusiastically the event: “A great result has been achieved today by our factory. We produced the 25,000th motorcycle and engine since Husqvarna has become a BMW’s brand. We are very proud of this achievement. A huge amount of work has been done in these two years, the production lines have been completely revised, we installed a new quality service and the logistics operation is in the reconstruction phase. Although the global economic crisis has deeply affected our business field, the company decided to continue investing energies and capital to be equipped with the most updated production processes, in order to be able to play a leading role among the European motorcycles and engines manufacturers. It is also remarkable the fact that this investment has been made in the Varese area which is traditionally known for the high professional standards of its people.”

    After finishing the production process of the 25,000th motorcycle, a 2010 TE 450, all production workers gathered together with president Rainer Thoma and Giuseppe Manacorda, Husqvarna Plant Manager, for a group picture.

    Awesome. :notworthy:

    what a cool brand regardless of being passed around. So glad they did not end up like Maico or other once proud brands.

    I guess I'm just goofy or something. I can appreaciate the 25000th bike. But what I really want is that pc of "Husky Carpet" they parked it on. That would look cooler under my bike when I unload for a race than under that bike.
    I want one!
