    SWM has promised USA homologation next year so both bikes should make it stateside. Just read on AdvRider that the PR7 will be using the wider TE630 gearing, which is good news - though I don't know how to confirm that. The SWM website doesn't list the gearing for their bikes now.

    PS. Might be worth putting some ice chains on: http://www.angusadventures.com/adventurer-handbook/beringstrait/

    I would take one in Italy as well and do a tour before shipping it home, if it was possible. Maybe a stop at the Isle of Man for the TT.

    Is the super dual a variation on their 650R? (engine looks like the TE 630's) on something based on the old 650 Husky?

    With a price rumored around 9000eu, I think the PR7 will compete more directly with the 701 and CCM. The SuperDual will be closer to KLR territory, it even has the metal tank :)


    Both the PR7 and the SuperDual use the old Husqvarna 630 engine, with some tweaks, and not the Terra 650 BMW engine.

    I like both. What I really like is the idea of fitting that windscreen from the Superdual to my TE630 :-) Being from Canada, I'm not holding my breath that either will be available here any time soon.

    Bushwa, I agree - there may be some interesting crossovers from these bikes onto the 610/630's. That plus parts access are a really cool aspect of the new lease of life on the 630 from SWM. Actually, when a rider on YouTube got off the SWM 650 and said its a surprisingly light and powerful bike and a fantastic ride, I grinned. Yep. Looking at these bikes, I'm chuffed with what the old Husqvarna managed to squeeze into my 610. It is still the lightest and most dirt oriented of the bunch.

    I think SWM is working hard to get USA Homologation next year - so perhaps it won't be so long in Canada (can you ride US reg bikes there?)

    Another mid-sized ADV bike that was shown at EIMCA, also a Chinese/Italian collaboration. This is a Benelli bike coming next year that should be priced to move:

    TRK 502, 210kg, 5.3 gallon tank, 17/19" tires, and a new six speed 500cc twin engine.

    That's the first thing that came to my mind when I saw a front picture :)
    The headlight mask looks the same.

    I like it and it looks very BMWish. What motor is that? The BMW based one maybe? 690/701 looking frame.

    It looks OK but the weight is very piggish for a 500 IMO.

    The 610 that started it all, the SWM RS650, the new SuperDual, and the PR7.
