Three new Husqvarna street motorcycles will debut at EICMA 2014, one likely based on the 701 Supermoto concept bike.
In October 2013, six months after KTM’s owner Pierer Industry AG purchased Husqvarna from BMW, the restructured Austria-based brand unveiled its 2014 lineup.
But gone were the street bikes, such as the TR650 Strada and Nuda 900R. Under Pierer Industry AG – an Austrian holding company owned by Stefan Pierer that also owns 51 percent of KTM – Husqvarna said the new range would only offer motocross, enduro and minicycle machines.
This proved true, the 2014 Husqvarna lineup featuring the TE and FE enduros, and the TC and FC motocrossers.
In late June, though, the Mattighofen-built Husky shocked many when it unveiled two new street-legal dual sports – the FE350S and the FE501S.
And Husqvarna now reports that three additional road-going motorcycles will debut at EICMA 2014 on November 6 – one large-displacement single-cylinder street and two concept models.
