    Does anyone know what percentage of Huskys get sold in N. America
    to total Husky sales?

    If the sales for N/A are like 25-30% say... and most of us are wanting larger fuel capacity tanks...why is this not an option Husqvarna provides for us?

    Maybe the type of riding or the riding area that Europeans have to ride in does not justify a larger tank.

    Has this been addressed at any of the meetings?

    Please let us know what's going on.:thumbsup:

    From what I heard we're on our own again for large tanks.

    The good thing is the bikes are here and can be used to make the prototypes.

    Not likely Husky will get directly involved in big tanks.

    Someone will have to commit to a few hundred to get IMS to produce them like Hall's did last year.

    Yes I know IMS can and most likely will be making larger tanks for the new models. I grabbed one of the first ones for my 510 back in 08. :thumbsup:

    But I would like a clear answer from Husqvarna why they won't supply a larger tank.

    Are we the only ones looking for one? Is there no one over in Europe that wants one?

    Just trying to get all the facts.:cheers:

    In the Cagiva days, NA (US and Canada) was about 15% of production. The number was small though.... 2000 units + or -. I doubt it's much different now. By comparison.... KTM peaked at around 23,000 units sold in the US alone a few years ago.

    the new special parts catalog has a big tank for the previous gen motor 310-450-510 bikes.

    I had no idea KTM sold that many units in N/A.

    Anyone know total world sales for Husky?

    25,000 bikes built in two years since BMW took over. I'm not sure that would include all 2008 MY production....
