R180 000!!?   As dit die geval is..... meh.
Surely it's R118 000


690's sell for 118k so I would also say the 701 should be close ? In fact even less

It doesn't make sense given the price of a Husky in Europe where import duties and shipping costs are (I can only imagine) much less

Eur8600 = R133K in rand terms, barring import taxes.. for a FE350!

*edit* 690 retails for EUR10K in the Netherlands, so R180K sounds about right. Except if Husky SA (if there is such a thing), manages a moerofa discount

Maybe I am wrong but I doubt that they would price themselves out of the market.

Just look at the KTM Super Duke --that bike is selling way under what it should be --- they have means of keeping prices down when they have to ::)

Sure we will hear end of next month or early January when they get here --

Even at R180 k ---cheap as chips  ::) ::) ::) A good lens for a camera will set you back more than that  :peepwall:

VERY nice yeah.

yeah but if you can get almost the same for R70 000K in a pre-owned 690 then R180 000 seems like a shitload.

Lets put it this way.
I'll rather have a 690 Enduro, 390 Duke, 1200gs and have cash to farkle, than 1 Husky 701 for R180 000

Considering that we don't pay R140k+ for a 690 (9k Euro in France) I expect Husky SA will also get a discount. So my guess is price will be around R120k + change

This thread is quiterer than I thought it would be, seems I'm one of the few people intrigued by the bike.

One thing I noticed is the 2 screws in the front tanks. I wonder why that is there, could it perhaps be a factory bolt-on fairing? :pot: :patch:

The other thing is the volume of the front tanks. I would geuss 4 L's each side, that would give you 21 L in total which is not shabby.

I sincerely hope they will come out with this bike, including the factory accessories designed for the bike. I've bought now 690 with the rally kit, which is probably OK, but would feel more warm and fuzzy if the kit was factory made with all the custom fittings and such.

I'm going for a trip in December to Moz, Zim, Zam and Bots, and if the 690 is not going to try kill me (as in leave stranded with pack of hyenas) and if this 701 comes sorted for long distance from factory, this may be my next bike.

Yip why I like my Ten, might be a heavy beast but you can abuse it and nothing falls off or rattles to bits.  Designed like that from the factory.

People are AT crazy right now, they want comfort and a twin above anything else. I reckon those screws might be used to bolt a small fairing to ? Like the clear line for checking fuel level  :thumleft:

The only thing that puts me off is maybe the short stroke motor, with a narrow ratio gear box  that produces all its power at the top end.  That's great for drag racing, but I'm not really interested in that.

The long stroke 610 motor is just so nice to ride over technical terrain.

So I'm actually more interested in those SWM models and that AJP PR7 which both use the Husky motor.

That's a completely different market.  There is no way that anyone interested in the AT will like one of these bikes.

Trying to make it the same won't help.
