Husqvarna TR 650 Terra Preview

Husqvarna TR 650 Terra Spec – TR debuted during Husqvarna 650 Strada, our favorite German-Scandinavian-owned Italian-based brand motorcycle company has released a 21-inch version of Strada wheels intended for off-road better. They call Husqvarna 650 TR Terra. Using the same engine capacity of 652cc DOHC single-cylinder water-cooled motor, Terra Husqvarna also makes 58hp and £ 44.25 • ft of torque, such as Strada Husqvarna.

Tipping the scales slightly lighter than the road-going sister, Terra has a dry weight here in the United States from 368 lbs (410 pounds wet). Available with ABS as an option in other markets, it appears the driver is more feature-shy we Americans will be given only non-ABS variant of pseudo off-road machines (Husky was not part of the pledge for universal BMW ABS). While Terra shares many components with the Strada, BMW Husqvarna expect that small changes between the two bikes will help facilitate more Terra Husqvarna off-road-oriented goals in life.

The most obvious difference is of course the wheelsets, which for Terra means 21 “spoked-wheel in front, and 18” spoked-wheel at the rear (17 “for models with ABS). Other changes include knobbier tires, seat height a little more low (up to 0.6 “), a slightly longer wheelbase, and of course 6.5 pounds dry weight (4 pounds less when wet).

A large enduro bike from BMW G650GS Sertão interesting, it is difficult to see how Husqvarna Terra hopes to differentiate from Strada, let alone a BMW you. If Strada closely violate the Nuda Husqvarna 900, then surprise us to see that all three of Husqvarna’s “path” model remains rooted even closer to home. Indeed, Husqvanra Strada and Terra intends to become two sides of same coin, with each appeal to riders who are a little different, but when you see the direction in which Husqvarna is currently led, is disturbing to see what BMW has done with the brand. Hopefully with this announcement mid-season, Husqvarna has something special waiting for us at the Intermot and EICMA. There is a strong possibility that either / both Moab Husqvarna Husqvarna and Steel concept will become production models, and if we can let our imaginations run wild for a while, a Husqvarna’d BMW S1000RR might REALLY interesting … assuming the BMW Italian designer gives a little breathing space.
