    These machines may have some relevance on CH. They do have more then a passing resemblance to the old Husqvarna's 2009, 2010. I've been looking at the 300 4t mostly and wondering if the USA will be importing the brand. The sale price is very competitive too. Nearly forgot to mention, KYB suspension with quality brakes and wheels. I rode a friends bike some years back, the 2009 310te, very impressed with its handling felt very sure footed and tracked the ground without fuss.

    They are supposed to be some day, paperwork approval takes forever with our red tape program.

    They have already gotten the 500 through testing. The 650 is working it's way through. These will be the first bikes imported.

    Can't wait. Will ZipTy be supporting these bikes with potential shark fins? Lol

    I'm very excited for this brand! I think it is great the old husqvarna factory is hard at work again and being put to good use. If they are priced right and don't fall apart I think they will make a great bike....can't wait!

    Had my SWM r650 for nearly a year now, done 90% dirt ranging from fire trails to rough jeep tracks. It handles this stuff very well. Furthermore there have been no mechanical issues. Only problem is slow starting in very cold weather, it will start but can take 2-3 goes.
