What about the Husqvarna 701 that may come out looks cool and it's not orange.

I Ride: FS 570
Yeah, the 701 might be cool - the prototype looked pretty funky! I rode the SMC R 690 (and Duke) which I think is the same engine as the new 701... It was pretty heavy when compared to the 'Berg and the engine was also kinda sluggish by comparison... plenty of top end power though... not a bad bike, but not as "SuMo" as the Berg, so made me think I should be considering a Naked/Street bike instead...

With regards to MX engines, my KXF450 weighs only fraction less than my FS, but kicks and pulls a whole lot harder; but somehow that doesn't make it a better (more fun) bike to ride... (at least for a chump like me). The magic recipe of power delivery & handling seems to have manifest in a happy place, for me, that is the FS 570.

If we ever get 701's in NZ I'll try to score a test ride. I had to get an import FS from the USA, so they might not make it down here...

Ha ha... yip, the 650 does kick arse. If the 701 rides like the 690, that would be a shame... the 690 is pretty boring after riding the 650 & 570. Changing styles a bit, I took a MV 800 Dragster out in the weekend... Pretty cool! Still can't part with the 570 though, if only I had enough cash for both... Bitsa - you wanna catch up for a brew at Hallertau one of these weekends? I was at the track last weekend and it poured down for about 8 hours on and off... so sick of this weather
