Husqvarna Concept MOAB

Last week during EICMA 2011 in Milan, Husqvarna unveiled its “re-interpretation” of the scrambler – the Concept MOAB.

The machine is Husqvarna’s remake of the classical scrambler, but with all the Husky technology of the 21st Century.

The off-road Husky features a 650cc engine in a perimeter frame, progressive linkage suspension, 17-inch wheels with knobby tires and comfortable ergos.

Speaking of the styling, Husky says “The color scheme, down to every last detail, both in bodywork and mechanics, is taken from Steve McQueen’s immortal H400. The unique form and colors give the MOAB an exhilaration vintage look.”

Attached above is some footage of the Husqvarna Concept MOAB as it was first unveiled at EICMA 2011.
