Husqvarna to unveil 2011 TE & SMS 630s

2011 TE630 & SMS630

In addition to showcasing Husqvarna’s 2010 model lineup, huge contingency program and new dealer initiatives at this weekend’s International Dealer Expo in Indy, the wraps are coming off two entirely new motorcycles!

Both the Husqvarna TE 630 dual-sport and the Husqvarna SMS 630 Supermoto are considered 2011 models and will be making their North American debut at the tradeshow.

This much anticipated street-legal pair was the talk of the world motorcycle press at the recent “Superbowl” of trade fairs, the EICMA show in Milan, but this will be the first opportunity for North American dealers and magazines to see these two new players.

The media is encouraged to attend a brief unveiling ceremony Saturday morning, February 13th at 11 a.m. at the Husqvarna display (Booth #1934), located within the Italian Trade Pavilion.

Mike Brady Speaks…

“Our new 630s created quite a stir during their European debut in Milan, so we thought that the Dealer Expo would be a very fitting place to show them off too,” says Husqvarna North America president Mark Brady. “Both of these bikes represent the culmination of the factory’s engineering and development team’s efforts. We think dealers and consumers will be eager to see the types of products that we’re creating.”

Want to see what is under wraps? Stop by the Husqvarna display or wait to see the TE630 or SMS630 after the 11 a.m. embargo is lifted this Saturday morning to see specs and images of the first 2011s to enter the country.

As well, we are not yet sure how different these will be from the 2010 Husqvarna TE 630 Dual-Sport or the 2010 Husqvarna SM 630 Supermoto we previewed here at Ultimate Motorcycling last year.
