Thank you Tolis, those are interesting photos.

I could be wrong but it looks to me like they've removed the current counter-balancer assembly - if they have, I wonder why that might be?

All the best,
Simon

there is a lot we can learn from those photos.

as we know the man who designed the husaberg then did the ktm, then the beta and then the sherco. not sure about the order of the last two but i think so. anyway, they have gone back to the balancer between the flywheels and infront of the engine, they have gone for a full flywheel crank, they've gone for a very shallow included valve angle of i think about 30-32d, i think the rod length looks shorter than usual so maybe the ratio is back to japanese stuff?

they've gone for hyvo chain, they've gone for cam drive from the crank, they've gone for a yamaha type decomp.

so in a way, it's a 1997 engine tipped on its tail and turned plus an oil pump - oh they had one of those then as well!

there is a gear there that i'm not sure what it does?

regards

Hi there
I am from sweden..and I have seen this bike as a prototype in the closet in the beginning of 2000, before KTM bought the husaberg company..the fantastic four allready had the bike figured out. KTM put a lid on it and now shows it 8 years later.
This shows how fast the world in mx are spinning.

Hmmjm I though KTM bought husaberg a few years prior to 2000; No? It would not suprize me if this had been under wraps for so long...

Husaberg was sold to KTM 1995. The production was moved to Mattighofen 2003. Maybe that's why the proto was seen in a closet. I'm glad it finally stepped out of the closet.

ok

on closer inspection i'm seeing something i've personally never seen before in my sheltered little world! they appear to have a flat piston with the middle area left out and no squish. this can't be true so i'm missing a trick obviously!

right?

next, the con rod looks very wide but must therefore be very thin. as usual with husaberg the big end pin just misses the main journal so do these bikes share the same stroke? the cutaway engine appears to be the 450 i would think?

the valve angle is very shallow, very very shallow. i would put it at under 30d now. anyway, the rockers are really, really short. probably exactly the same as a sherco.

so despite the upper half looking like a KTM, i don't think it will have much in common with it at all!

still can't get my head around those large gears? anyone?

regards
