Caught a big one!

Recommended Posts

Added a clean low-mile 2010 Husaberg FE 570 to the stable! Amazing bike!!!!!

It's surprisingly similar to a DR-Z - the handling is like a mix of the DR-Z and the older generation Husabergs. It's like a DR-Z that feels 30kg lighter - it is around 15kg less? not sure, 114kg dry weight and much better centralized and lower. 6 speed box, perfect fuel injection, and tons of very tractable power - the stock bike's 55rwhp aren't scary at all, just goooooood. And the grace and agility - my god. I was laughing inside my helmet when it hit me after a lane change just how beautifully this thing handles. Hard to explain - very subtle. Beautifully designed dynamics.

The only thing that it is missing to be the perfect vehicle is the ability to take a passenger.

Haha!!

 

... Here are some pics - the one in front of the garage is a little oversharpened so it looks less clean than it is, and then the last 2 pics are sales photos from the PO and are sliiightly rosy in some respects :) ... the bike is somewhere in between. Still, most of the plastics are still shiny! Very good!

 

btw, It's got the aftermarket subframe tank - the entire subframe is a plastic gas tank. Pretty cool.

My neck doesnt seem to hurt anymore. weird. haha. 

 

that looks fun. How are you going to be able to bring yourself to possibly mess it up riding in the dirt? 570? that thing has gotta be quick..

Thank you all :) I am very happy to be able to keep the dr-z too - such a nice bike. It's not as out-of-this-world as the Husaberg, but it's still a great great bike that I love heaps. The dr-z is magic! It really is!

Good grab for you Anthon! Hows the maintenence schedule on it? Is it like the very needy KTMs or the super high maintenence BMW 450x? I have seen a 'Berg like that close up and found it to be very interesting. Would like to ride one someday. Be careful with all that HP and have some fun!!! :D

Pretty low maintenance, compared. Wayyyyyy more reliable than the previous-gen Husabergs (and does give up a little bit of the sheer knife-edge laugh-inside-your-helmet brutality of the old generation). The sloper Bergs are heavier-duty, and so lower-maintenance, but then what weight is added is "hidden" with good design and weight/rotating-mass centralization. The valves don't move for hundreds of hours, rebuilds an unusual occurrence, oil capacity is decent and oil analysis shows that with a non-race riding style, the oil is fine for 1000-2000-mile intervals.
