Husky's have never had much regard for your manly bits, remember the old MX bikes with the bolt between the seat and the tank? A "goodie guard" was a mandatory addition before any serious off roading.

No problem... I just have had too many tube failures... Won't have them anymore.
And light(ish) weght bikes can have light (ish) weight brake components... Ya don't need killer-diller brakes all,the time,
but there are times when you do, and you don't want to be taxing them, in those times either.

Some demented sicko's (wink wink) ride fast down long mountain grades...

EICMA 2016 right around the corner. Can't wait for them to introduce the 401/701 and announce it's coming to the US. Hopefully they're here early next year.

If that Scrambler had two more wheels, a draw bar, a power takeoff and a tractor seat it'd be a dead ringer for my 25 year old John Deere.

If you had fixed it correctly you would have inserted "KISKA" instead of KTM.

A nice set of Pro Tapers to go with the supermoto "slicks" would be the way to go.

KTM tends to experiment with their off brands to test the waters. Husky will be allowed to breath, but only just. Any competition between Husky and KTM will be suppressed, so we'll see what comes of these models. It seems that they are stand alone designs enough to not threaten or cannibalize their mothers products.
