Handling and performance
Naturally, Husqvarna’s long experience in Motard racing has played an important part in the development of the new motorcycles. The challenges posed by the conception of geometry and by the general concept of the motorcycle itself were linked to the tough demands of riding in the most severe and extreme conditions such as sharp changes in direction, tight bends and winding mountain roads. The result is a surprisingly effortless and smooth ride along with agility and outstanding steering stability. The chassis is perimetrical made of high strength steel tubing. The geometry of the rear suspension is revolutionary, with a new linkage mounted on the upper side of the aluminium alloy swing arm. This solution offers many advantages: it increases the ground clearance, improves general reliability thanks to the reduced exposure of the link and makes maintenance easier.
But there’s more: dynamically, by exploiting the advantages of the double cradle frame made in high strength steel tubing, the roughness of the ground is absorbed more gradually, attenuating the stresses on the rider. The advantages when jumping are also remarkable with the recoil effect of the rear wheel being significantly reduced and the smoothness of the suspension is particularly perceivable on rougher and more difficult ground. All this offers great manoeuvrability and ease of driving with a record-setting total weight for a single cylinder Supermotard: the SMR 511 weighs just 118 kg on the kerb, without fuel.
