Since I heard about the Husqvarna TR650, a single-cylinder “dual sport” from europe, I’ve wondered whether it could be “The One.” Weight and speed are right. Price for a new one is right. It’s kinda sexy for a dual sport–and relatively reliable since it has the same motor as the BMW G650GS. This could easily be a candidate for my quest for one motorcycle to rule them all.
Here’s what Cycle World has to say about it from the first ride.
“Admittedly, from a pure performance perspective, the $6999 Terra and $7499 Strada are a compromise. Despite their few flaws, they will get you to your destination with a grin on your face and wallet intact.”
Sounds good to me.
