    It's a crowded market, and most 'adventure' bikes never go further off-road than a dirt car park. However it looks good.

    To be fair as its a Husky it probably is more aimed at off road than on road ADV stylee ..... its got enough crash protection

    I like that, looks like it good be fun off road until it all goes wrong and you've got 200KG+ of out of control Husky trying to kill you at 100mph, looks like a good competitor for Yamahas 700 Tenere, could big off road bikes that are usable off road be coming back into fashion?

    On another note... you'll like this, Suzuki's V-Strom 1000 is being restyled as DR Big

    Let's hope it's more DR Pig than Varadero, though why I'm bothered as I'm highly unlikely to buy a new bike, and my legs are too short for any of these monsters.

    I'm quite liking the old school Suzi Yellow/Blue colour.

    I do worry for Suzuki though they don't seem to have many new bikes in the last few years and beyond colour/tweeks nothing this year either.

    I've noticed a trend on the 790 Adventure owners pages where people seem to feel obliged to buy the top of the range (because they can) then flash out on the maximum number of accessories, regardless of whether they need any of this or not. Ironically a lot of the posts recently have been people buying the 790R then trying to kit it out for touring, which is what the 790S is better for, at 1,000 cheaper. It's like the GS mentality but for people who don't want to be seen to have a GS. I'm sure Husqvarna will sell this bike very well, though I doubt many will ever see a rally raid.

    Aren't all rally raid bikes now 450s (and quicker than the 690s that preceded them)
