Not every new bike should look, ride and feel like a 450 Dakar replica.

This Norden looks like a very lekker grondpad cruiser.

I am just glad Husky did away with the fixation on male genitalia in their nomenclature. Svartpielen. Lag my nog steeds simpel oor daai een.

And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."

They actually came quite close to the concept bike revealed 2 years ago.

Only a few protective bits and proper suspension missing.

The WP Apex suspension performs better than the ďcompetitionísĒ offering

Last bike I owned and I regret selling it so much, the 701sm.

Wouldnít mind replacing it again one day.
Such a capable bike, whether you prefer the adventure or supermoto they handle so well and the power to weight ratio is incredible.

Braaap!

Kyk, die T7 gaan die outjie vir brekvis vreet.
Beslis ja, veral met sy suspensie wat ongelooflik is, T7 se suspensie is wereld klas en mÍlee voor alles op die mark.

Absoluut. Die enigste rede hoekom ouens soos chopperpilot aan sy T7 se suspension laat werk, is  omdat dit tax deductible is. :3some:
Pol kon ook terug claim vir die ekstra 100ml olie wat hy in sy voor vurke gegooi het.

Dit was tong in kies, daai goed se suspensie is hond kak.

Lyk my elke DS bike deesdae word met die T7 vergelyk. Seker meer normaal as die T7 so goed verkoop en geprys word van alle oorde. 210mm travel het die Romaniacs klaar gemaak so relax Husky manne, die Norden sal darem offroad kan doen.

Why go to the expense of supporting two different brand names that are essentially they same vehicle.Ditch the Husky brand so its no longer your competition and move on.Take all the good that Husky had on offer and finished.The cost of this unnecessary venture must be huge.

I've been thinking about this all weekend.

I am bummed it doesnt have the full bored suspension like the 890R.  If you're paying the amount of money that this thing is gonna cost, you kinda want the full strength, real makoya....not coke lite.

Having said that, personally I loved the 790/890 but always felt the suspension was just too hard for riding chilled.  If you were BELTING the thing then it felt great, but just cruising it felt really harsh......So maybe the Apex 43mm suspension would actually be better for somebody like me, who is more of a chilled rider.

Wat moun jy?
Dis dan dieselfde graad suspensie as wat die ware Dakar/factory bikes op het.
Good luck om selfde off-the-showroom floor opsies te hÍ by die ander brands.

As jy eers cone valves beleef het, is die prys altyd n bargain  :deal:
