KTM just announced that they will be rolling Husqvarnas off the same assembly line as the Dukes at Bajajs Indian plant...

KTM fully acquired Husqvarna in January of this year, If Bajaj can streamline Husqvarnas manufacturing like KTM we may see the legendary brand become a competitive option again...

I've never seen any of these Husqvarna bikes in North America. Given that they have just been bought by KTM, it seems like if they were going to move the brand to NA, now would be the time.

Husqvarna, like Yamaha, has an interesting collection of different things that it produces.

This is what a 2014 model looks like.

theres a chance we could see Husqvarna "dukes" I mean bajaj and KTM already share the duke sort of, so why not Husqvarna as well?

Would be cool to see them on the streets again.

Do you think that bike will be comfortable to sit on? I can't even really tell where the seat is on the bike. Husqvarna should make a bike to compete with the Grom. It looks like they could make some really fun mini bikes.

With what's their to sit on, it's going to be a very short distance bike, no support, no comfortable ride, i'll pass. But it seems like it will be tough to get a seat that will look good on it.

I think this may be a KTM Duke 690 in a Husky frame. 72 hp according to some reports.
