    Would you like some pics of the superior bike for old times sake

    Oh, I didn't know you owned the later, infinitely superior, FI 610?

    Not just more suspension travel, looks to be much improved forks and shock. Just needs a Rally Raid fairing and tanks....

    For those longing for the 610 days to return (at least I think it's more a 610 rather than the later 630). Seems a bunch have already been exported to Oz.

    The SM version is £5600. Not seen the price for the E version yet.

    And so it goes full circle; my old 610 was built in Italy (part of the MV Augusta group) - I wonder if it's back at the same factory?

    The engine looks more 630 to me, it's defo got the WBM developed head from the 630...............

    That's s very good price though

    Whilst essentially the same bike as the old Husky I wonder what the score is with cycle parts / componantry. I'm also thinking a source of spares for my Husky as the years go on.............

    Engine is made in China, under licence..........................somebody bought the rights to the original Husky engines and SWM name and hence revamped an iconic Italian brand, with the ex Husky engine

    I'm tempted by the 701 Enduro. Are Husky going to be at the NEC bike show?

    If this list is correct it doesn't appear so
