I like what I see here...

"All Husqvarna motorcycles are manufactured in the production hub of Mattighofen in Austria, a plant considered one of the most advanced in Europe. 

All of the 2014 Husqvarna bikes feature a super light chromium molybdenum steel frame with polyamide rear subframe, a completely new innovation for motocross machines. They all have advanced, fully adjustable WP suspension and are driven by powerful and reliable engines ensuring they are firmly positioned at the top end of the offroad segment."

they haven't had time yet to make anything other than a white/blue/yellow ktm, which is what the bergs have been for the last few years anyway.

like Roman said, it will be interesting to see how it plays out over the next few years. not sure how much of the husky engineering team would be left at this point, but I hope they're allowed to develop new bikes completely independent from the KTM model lineup.

BREAKING NEWS
I just received word from the promoter of the Club 57 Challenge that a new award will be given out at this year’s GP.
Re: Club 57 Challenge GP
This year, one unfortunate rider will have the honor of receiving the “Natola Hard Luck Award”.
A whole gamut of excuses, uhh… circumstances, can make one eligible to receive the award.
For example: “Mechanical failure”, or… “I missed my moto because I was in the porta-john with shit-cramps”, or… “I couldn’t race- just had a baby” (lame), and the ever-popular, “wife wouldn’t let me race”.
The winner will receive a warm six-pack of Twisted Tea.
Must be 21 or older to be eligible. Rider need not be present to win.

Fixed it for you!

I made it out a whopping 2 times to races this year and 5 other times for practice. I even got to ride with BH for a while once! A banner year for me this year!

I to am thinking of trying to hit the Woodstock series a few times next year. However, this is the time of year that I start thinking about all the wonderful things that I could (but probably won't) do next year as far as riding...

BTW, has anyone heard if Byron is going to reschedule the GP? Can't you get the scoop from your little buddy Brad?

To the original question, I think KTM will look for ways to differentiate the two brands on perception, but based on what they did with Berg, I doubt there will be much difference in reality. They bought the brand because it is one of the most historic and recognizable brands out there. Other than Honda and maybe Yamaha, what other brand name has as much distribution as Husqvarna? You can go into any big box home store and buy a Husqvarna Chainsaw, lawn mower, weed whacker, etc.

Husaberg used to be very different than KTM and they merged them together because it is a lot cheaper to manufacture that way, and Berg sales of the Blue/White KTM's were probably (I have no data to go from here) way better than they have ever been in the brand's 25 year history. I doubt they will handle Husky much differently, we will see in a few years...
