The new Husqvarna SMQ concept. It's oddly attractive I must say.

The gold throws me off a bit but otherwise, delightfully tacky!

Nice!

I definately dig the spokes, (more so if they were black hoops), but the exhaust and that Dakar looking fairing need to go in the shitcan

Noooo! The BMW influence begins. Now huskys will become quirky.

DOH!!!!

Engine/weight/performance specs?

I like the look but like Equalz and Maynard said, minus the lamp and odd looking beer bong the engineer left on the can.

I think that with a small carbon pipe, different headlight, black rims and without the tail section, it might look real hot.
The engine is probably an updated 450 SMR. Should be a fun bike for commuting and street hooliganism.

I would like to ride it and see how that forward tilted motor felt. It might be a good thing to get the weight lower and farther forward
