They already come with a steel basket and good plates, I don't see any improvement coming from adding an aftermarket clutch

You didn't give us a wave from the podium in Geneva. Extremely disappointed Mr. GuyBson.

Why would I pay Rockstar for putting their friggin logos all over the NEW bike I purchase? Pissed I can not find a Kawasaki Green helmet that does not have the friggin Monster Logos all over it.

This is the rare case where, to me, the factory bike looks worse than the OEM bike, especially when you compare it to the beautiful 2016 FC I've pictured. It's all due to Rockstar color scheme but I just don't care for it. I like the different body work and, being a KTM guy since 01, I dig the trickness and similarities to the Orange but that black yellow white Rockstar scheme just doesn't float my boat. But hey, they pay the bills!!

Now the Red Bull Ice One Factory Husqvarna? That was sure gorgeous!! Maybe I just miss the dark blue.

With all that being said, though, I'm super excited to have another factory replica available to the public to go along with the KTM FE. Wish the other manufacturers would at least consider doing these but I realize KTM/Husky have more flexibility.

Thanks. I didn't know about that. Sure seems like KTM/Husky are doing things right.

Also, added a few more pics on the first page.

Personally I like the new bike. Not a fan of the graphics but I'm sure it won't be long until there's renderings of the bike with mock up graphics. That might help it look better?

For those who do not like the new look...you can simply unscrew the bottom part of the rear side panels.....and have the KTM look a like :-P

|

It will grow on us. I’d go for a standard version just for the white frame.

Man I really took for granted the old look. Those rear side plates look quite bad being two piece.

|

12/7/2017 3:11 AM

To me it looks much better than ktm or previous generation... The only question is what did they do to the engine....It looks like they improved low-end...hopefully not on the expense of top end/over rev...

|

12/7/2017 3:33 AM

Those sideplates look really ugly. Other than that it’s really good.

|

12/7/2017 3:36 AM

I guess this is their way of being "different" from KTM?

|

12/7/2017 3:56 AM

I already feel bad for everyone having to install custom numberplate graphics on this thing.

Or having to replace them over and over... That edge looks like it's gonna get hammered.

I don't know about the look of the bike. One thing I know is that it looks def worse with this stupid long FMF-exhaust!

They must smoke some good dope back at the husky design shop. “Bruhh lets just chop that fukin side panel in half!”

|

12/7/2017 5:22 AM

They Definitely should have stolen that KTM rear end as well, It's the damn side plate that ruins it.

Husqvarna continuing to make the worst looking bike on the market. Those number plates are retarded

Yep and will be 16k. Buy the bike as is. Add what you want. Sell oem parts.

The retail price gap between Cone valve/Trax and the stock suspension is only $1800.

Wow, that looks so much better.

|

12/7/2017 5:46 AM

They should have done what ktm did and used the old design but made it much thinner and sleeker and trimmed it all down.

|

12/7/2017 5:52 AM

This new design really has me scratching my head. Why does nothing fit together or flow? I get that the Husqvarna has that chunky but clean look, but this new design looks like a bunch of mismatched parts were bolted together. I want to like the Husky, but this design will have to really grow on me first.
