Husqvarna's Injects More Into the Supermotard Segment - (Australia)

Previous - Next

The 2008 Husqvarna Supermotard range offers 4 different models ranging from 450 to 610 cc. Without any shadow of a doubt, Husqvarna is the leader of the pack in the Supermotard sector.

In the early 90's, they were the first to run an official team in the various national championships (the French were the first) and also the first to include a Supermotard model in their lineup.

These bikes were specially designed to meet all the requirements of this very specific discipline and brought great success to our riders in the main Italian and World Supermoto Championships.

World champions in 2008 with Adrien Chereyre, Gerald Delepine and Manufacturer world champions, Husqvarna has transformed the machines that have dominated the Supermotard world championships into "standard" production machines offering customers a range of motorcycle products to suit all.

Customers can range from youngsters with their first Motard to riders wishing to use their Husqvarna for daily commuting and the occasional out of town ride to those wanting to ride the same machines as the world champions.

The SM 450R and 510R, SM 450 RR and SM 610 have all been completely renewed with three key elements in mind: performance, reliability and hot European style.

The SM 450R is the starting point for those wanting to experience the thrills of motarding. Now fitted with electronic injection, this bike meets Euro 3 requirements like the rest of the 2008 Husqvarna Supermotard machines.

The frames and engines on the SM 450R and SM 510 R have been completely renewed for 2008 and fuel injection systems fitted. The SM 450 RR is a replica of the machine on which Adrien Chareyre won the Supermoto World Championship.

It is a pure competition machine that is not homologated for road use and that will be produced as a limited edition model of 100 units worldwide.

The 2008 version of the SM 610 i.e. now comes in two colour schemes and has electronic injection that was developed in collaboration with Mikuni.

Model RRP incl. GST. Plus dealer delivery + ORC.
