If you could ask Husaberg (Austria) one question....

BMG will be visiting the factory in Austria next week.
If you could ask Husaberg one question, what would it be ?
Personally, my hot-button issue is about the availability of a 250cc four stroke bike.

What other issues do you think might bear discussion ?

Thanks,

Brett Saunders

What will the next major change be? What's going to make me say "wow". I don't think BNG, plastics or even a 250cc machine are gonna do it for me. Time to add something alittle "cutting edge", although I would settle for enhanced performance and durability
I'm still waiting for Berg to be a test platform for KTM again instead of the other way around.

There is a modification you can make to the decompressor weights where you add a daub of weld to stop the weights travelling over centre. it forces them stay further out at cranking speed thus helping the decompression mechanism to work more effectively and allowing the starter to crank at an effective starting speed.

not a single question; rather a series of requests.
1. change the chassis spine to a narrower fabricated version, rather than the extruded RHS, to allow a narrower tank.
2. reinstall a removable sub-frame
3. make a 3/4 sized (125 sized) 450 for gents of deminished stature.

ltd edition run of the 400 again for entrance level whilst waiting for the 250. BTW the british dealers are crying for the old 400 because our conditions are generally tighter and more nadgery (difficult).

if KTM bring back a 400 then so should husey.

all MX and non-electric start bikes to have an airbox improving BHP.

450 to have the 400's stroke of 60mm and not 57.2mm as of present.

why stop at a 250. why not start with a 125 4T? or even a 200 4T.

raise the exhaust above the crankcase so the cover can be removed w/o taking the exhaust off PLEASE!!!

given that husaberg change the angle of the frame for MX and SM compared to EN i feel that not anly a seperate subframe but also one that hinges and has threaded "fingies" (forgotten the name for now) on the end to adjust the seat height like the WR yamahas.

sort out the slack in the swingarm pin if it still exists. the gap between the pin and the dowel is .45mm which is too much.

the electrics look thrown together on the bike. get it sorted.

regards

Any plans for

A) Fuel injection??

B) Catalytic exhaust (dont know how you say that in english but I guess you know what I mean) with reduced noise and no power loss??
That would put some pressure on the other brands.

C) A pure SM-racebike, FS700R or something like that??
Similar to a KTM660FR or HVA630 but without the extreme price tag. Let it cost €11k-12k.

If they could make a wife bike with a seat height of no more than 34" With a 250cc. engine with an E button that works on cold starts. That would be great! That could be a huge market for them!

What is the Austrians vision regarding Husaberg?

Example:
Is Husaberg simply a test platform for future KTM products, an honest and true independent product line and / or some sort of legal necessity which lingers as a result of their initial purchase. (Husaberg was partially funded by the Swedish Government)

Heres a thought, take me along and I shall ask the questions personally.
