All-New Dual-Purpose Husqvarnas 3

Yeah, we know you're not going to do any motos on these, but it's interesting to note that Husqvarna has introduced an all-new pair of dual-purpose bikes, the TR650 Terra and TR650 Strada. The Strada is more asphalt-oriented, while the Terra offers up more off-road capabilities.

Husqvarna TR650 Terra.

Husqvarna TR650 Strada.

Both bikes have a 652cc single-cylinger engine, based on BMW's G 650 GS powerplant; but get modified EFI systems, different cams, higher compression and higher compression to boost the output to 58 horsepower, while still getting a claimed 55-plus MPG.

Other differences? Larger spoked wheels on the Terra, while the Strada gets smaller-diameter cast aluminunm wheels and an ABS brake system.

Both are destined for dealers in the fall at the earliest. So what do you think?
