    You're aware that KTM own Husqvarna motorcycles ? They're essentially the same company....

    Later in 2013, direct ownership of the Husqvarna company was transferred and license rights were sold from Pierer Industrie AG to KTM AG, making the newly established Husqvarna Motorcycle GmbH part of the KTM Group.[12][13] Husqvarna motorcycle production at Mattighofen in Austria started on 7 October 2013.[14] At the same time, Husqvarna-spin-off Husaberg was re-united with Husqvarna, terminating the existence of the Husaberg brand

    The 701/690 SMC is a tough one as the 701 is a nicer colour/better looking so guess KTM made the new 690 look the same. Still prefer the Husky though. Seems odd to have both exactly the same when the other Huskies have been made very distinct from the Duke

    The Husky is basically the same as the original ktm 690sm too so they have copied their copy of their original, sorta
