You put left leg in, your left leg

2008 Husqvarna Supermoto

Benidorm isn’t a very place in February. Scores of English people on £129 holidays roam the place zombies. It’s like 28 Later but in slow-motion.

Not the most place for a high-octane supermoto but tucked away in the hills is a turning karting track packs more corners just 3/4s of a mile most people see in a weekend. And so here for the new Husqvarna supermotos.

hell, the build quality on new bikes is stratospherically high. New have got BMW backing behind now and the smart new red/white paint look …-hot. Anyone thinking of the old-school Huskies dodgy reliability needs to again.

These new bikes are razor and, we’re assured, to run and run.

There are three we’re testing: the 610SM, is the heaviest and most road-orientated of the The 510SM, which with its motor, short wheelbase and weight (a whole 20kg than the 610!) promises to be the of the bunch. And then there’s the 450RR, track-use only and a price tag of £10,000.

Only 10 are to the UK and they’re all sold out anyway. also an electric little with screaming 26bhp huge in the Italian market but of appeal in the UK.

I started on the road-orientated It’s predictable, easy to on the karting track and doesn’t any terrors in store. On the road it feel rampant and bulging midrange power.

On the tight, twisty track on, it feels predictable and forgiving. when you haven’t been on a round a circuit in 3 years I’m afraid!) The 55bhp motor right from the bottom, the Brembo brakes up front are strong, and it feels solid and Very easy to throw and the motor sounds fantastic, it does run out of revs a little (I can’t tell you where because I was too busy watching the and you have to dance around on the gearbox to keep it in the power.

straight onto the 510 afterwards is jumping forward 10 years in technology. This new fuel-injected is bloody brilliant. It’s solid, sharp-nosed and very, aggressive after the larger Despite being 90cc in engine size it makes the peak power, but gets much faster and hangs its power for longer.

Instead of a traditional 4-… bark out the back of the exhaust, the 510 makes a noise like aluminium as it scorches out of corners. it wheelie? Oh sweet Lord down the straights, out of corners, you want to. The chassis is incredibly and even for an old fart like the 510 feels plugged-in to your command without being at all or brutal to ride.

Husky to sell around 150 of these in the UK this year. At £6k it’ll be for many to justify the outlay, but a potent weapon for the lucky few who You could say I liked it.

The 450RR was just too much for me. I to admit it but I’m disgustingly short of bike-fit at the moment, a winter back and forth on a massive has left me slug-like and useless, and tiring myself out but grinning a meerkat on the 510, the 450RR was too too good and too much.

This handbuilt monster is assembled to go nothing more, and only you have the strength and ability to it like it NEEDS to be ridden it feel right. In my quivering it was pathetic, like giving an to a baby at a spud-gun party. three laps I handed the back to the Husqvarna technicians who politely and promptly sent me out on the £150,000 works 660RR of World Champion Gerald Thanks guys.

And weirdly enough, this Cyclops of a motorcycle was actually to ride than the 450RR. The power was smooth and not as frenetic as the the handling less rabid and me not even approaching 30% of what it do, it’s remarkable how rideable the was.

The SM125 is surprisingly and insanely good fun to ride it’s good to hear two-… noise again and the clutch exiting corners), but the is the star of the show for me. Stylish, … and impossibly fun to ride, the 510 is one of bikes that everyone who a GSX-R1000 should sling leg over just the once. It re-arrange your concept of fun forever.

Husky, it would appear, are and truly back.
