You say 600cc motor but the graphics on the engine casing say 650cc?

TK and myself were drooling over this bike already for a few years, and even though it has some very cool features, after I discovered the KTM 500 I would not stand in a queue to order one. It is like 40kg heavier! That is not a McDonalds hamburger!
Having said that, it does have some features not found on any other bike in it's class. Not mentioned, the air intake is right on top of the tank, giving it a massive wading depth. Definitely some serious thought went into this bike.
KTM 690/Husky 701 watch out!

I see that but it is definitely a 600cc motor - why the 650cc badge I do not know - maybe something for the future

The Yamaha motor was not Euro 3 or 4 compliant whatever so they had to drop it in favour of something else and went for the Husky (Italian owners not KTM like now) unit.

This will ride so much easier than a 790 ADV or T7 Yamaha but alas HP hungry South Africans wont agree.

It will come into SA, sell some models, and depart, leaving owners with a very much de-valued bike.

If there were a market beyond us dreamers for these bikes, Yamaha, Honda, KTM, etc would have had it here already.

They are not big enough to compete with the likes of KTM/Yamaha/Honda in any shape or form.

It's the 610 Husqvarna  / SWM motor they are using. On the Husky it was actually a 570cc, maybe it got bored out on this AJP who knows.

Its the Husky twin cam 630 motor not the single cam 610 motor, Im not sure but I think it is 600cc.

You are right, went from 570 to 600cc it seems.
