Can-am / Husaberg hybrid

This is the Can-am/Husa i've been working on in the last year. All the mechanics is done, just needs to make it look like a real can-am now.
Long story short, my dad used to race a sonic 500 and 560 so i wanted one to build as a supermoto + snowbike. After searching for over a year without finding ANY Sonic for sale, i decided to build myself one. Went for something more modern and EFI for ease of use and reliability.
So i found this beat-up Husaberg 570 with badly damaged engine and managed to swap in a Can-Am DS450 engine (and repair the rest of the bike in the process too of course) Long term plans will be to build a stroker crank that will run on plain bearings and turn this into an extremely powerfull and reliable 500.



Thanks from steve, zaga, bergbro and 5 others

Can you clarify how stroker rotax 500 is more powerfull and more reliable that stroker 660? Just asking. Personally I'd do 700 pre 70 degree with mikuni carb to complement largest possible valves. Ideas being prepared listed in my post 104mm piston group buy.

If it's better, i don't know, but financialy it makes sense for me to go that route. I have a bunch of Aprilia RSV parts already and the DS 450 engine has the same cylinder head as the Aprilia. And i work at BRP (can-am) so having a rotax powered bike makes sense too.

Were those older Husabergs ever imported in canada anyway? Never seen one... so getting parts could be problematic and they would not be street legal. On the other hand, plenty of DS450 quads around and the 570 shares lots of suspension components with KTM which are plenty around here.

I hate carb to death, it's never tuned right, always something wrong. Since i will also run as snowbike, EFI makes things a lot more simple since you don't have to change the jets all the time. The DS 450 head has 31/36mm valves and you can just swap the head for the newer aprilia twins which have 33/38mm valves and larger ports. These aprilia made 145 crank hp stock so it's minimum of 70 crank hp if i just go for a 500 stroker with stock aprilia cams. Big bore RSV (1100cc) usually put out around 140 wheel HP+... so if i do a big bore+ stroker i can get a 550cc with 70 WHP... not bad at all.

I'll be at about 4500$ total for the project including 2 sets of new plastics, 1 stock engine, one stroker engine and with the supermoto set-up. Of course i'm not counting the amount of time i'm spending to build it.
Thanks from steve

Nice looking job.
Take it to work and show it to the BRP brass.
The world is waiting for BRP(Can-AM) to re-enter the motorcycle business.
I know that BRP(Rotax) are selling tons of power trains to BMW and Aprilia but really. What are they waiting for?

Yes very interesting stuff you got going there. I'd definitely show it to your boss. You never know meybe you get some money out of your idea and we get another choice. Ya older Husaberg were in Canada. I got 3. 650 big bore into 700 go over 80 rwhp with carb sorted out. Their advantage is mainly lightweight and excellent torque. We gladly welcome you here among like minded group of guys. We're excited to see your contribution to our group for shure. Many tinkerers here but you working at BRP is an asset. Welcome!
Thanks from steve and ede

I know its a pain, but If you have pics detailing the build, I would be interested in seeing those.

I have most of my build pics on photobucket, but now it doesn't work anymore, i have to find an other host to post pictures of that on forums i guess.
