2011 Husqvarna Motorcycles

Husqvarna has revealed its 2011 motorcycle models to the world at Intermot in Cologne, in Milan. Leading the way for Husqvarna are its two new supermoto bikes, the SMR449 and the SMR511, which were developed from Husky’s enduro and motocross bikes.

According to a Husqvarna spokesman, “These are bikes more than ready for off-road competition but also suitable for daily commuting, thanks to their ease of handling, maneuverability and engine response.”

New colors have been presented for the 125cc supermoto range, as well as the Husqvarna SMR630. The dual-sport WRE125 and TE630 have also been upgraded, as well as receiving the color and graphic treatments shown on the 2011 race bikes.

Antoine Meo took another world Enduro championship and Husqvarna is recognizing that accomplishment with a TE 250 Meo replica, in a limited production run of 100.

The CR65 widens Husqvarna’s range of mini motocross bikes. It is a true competition machine, joining the CR50 and SM50 models, and offers the same visual cues as the new 449/511 series, with a layout that is in unique in off-roading.
