 :thumleft:  Who is going to bring them in? Who is going to back parts, repairs, warranty, etc?  How long can they secure that engine for this bike?

Too true , the people on this forum bitch and complain about bad service , waiting for spares etc .... what will it be like when there is no importer around and a small part failure means a cancelled trip , that small part that a larger importer would have had in stock , or when everything has to be imported , suddenly the bike becomes a pain in the ass .

What if a bigger company brings them in, for example Kawasaki/Suzuki/Cayenne, etc?

That would be fine , but having said that I am waiting 3 months for a spare part from one of these 3

A classic 'chicken and egg' or 'catch 22' situation. If a bike sells in large numbers then there is going to be more dealerships and more spare parts carried in stock. But many buyers wont buy, until XYZ becomes as big a brand name name as BMW with plenty of spares support in every town.

Everybody wails on about parts availability, we live in the information age where you can order stuff from abroad and have it here via courier in a few days, so I for one don't believe it to be a deal breaker. I have done just that with my Husky and Aprilia for ages now.... Hell I even bring in stuff from the US for my KTM, granted it is not OE parts.
As for the suspension I believe it will be fine if not better, at least it won't be such an abomination as that air shock on a HP2  :peepwall:

Has anybody noticed that SWM (the engine supplier) has a very similar bike in their line up called Superdual X which uses the same engine?

Only hope they have a better airbox design than the stupid things they had on the Husqvarna TE's. And no cush washers being eaten up by the motor, cracking battery tray and early valve train wear. Besides that excellent bikes.

Before you can order parts on the internet, someone must actually produce those parts first.

Indeed.

Frans, the fact that som small operation is building bikes does not mean that you will get parts for it in 2 years time.

Thanks for the kind offer  :thumleft:

But I was merely trying to make the point that the small boutique makers come and go like rain, and you'll have an expensive living room display on your hands in short order when parts become unavailable. It's simply a numbers game.

Their service and back up can't be worse that ktm's!

I think they are on to something here. Why not give them a change!

Most great companies started of with far more odds against them than these guys!
