New Husqvarna TR 650 Terra TR 650 Strada In Australia

With the new street bikes turning more and more into a successful comeback, Husqvarna announces that two of their all-new TR 650 motorcycles will be available in Australian dealerships in December. 

Manufactured in Husqvarna's Northern Italian plant, the Terra model is the dual-sport machine while the Strada is a purely road biased offering. In Australia the Strada will be ABS equipped as standard while the more off-road Terra goes without. Both models are braked by a 300mm single front disc and 240mm rear. The Terra model rolls on spoked rims rather than the cast alloys employed on the Strada.

 They're powered by the 652cc single-sylinder engine from the BMW G650GS, although power has been incresed from 47bhp to a claimed 58bhp.There will also be a reduced power version for riders on a restricted licence, which will make 48bhp. The new restriction rules start in 2013. 

 The TR650 Terra is a bit lighter at 368 pounds and offers the option of an anti-lock brake system, whereas its tarmac-oriented brother features ABS as standard equipment. A 21-inch spoked wheel handles rolling duties up front, while an 18-inch version takes care of the rear. Aggressive rubber, a lower seat and marginally longer wheelbase also help differentiate the Terra from the Strada.
