    Cool Looking Bike

    It's a super TW-Van Van- Norton mix.

    Looks fun, Another bike to tease me. So many great bikes for sale these days. It must be hard for a young person wanting a motorcycle and has money to buy to make his/her mind up. So many great new and used models to choose from.

    It's a 390 Duke underneath. Those have supposedly been out for a few years, but I've never seen one despite having worked at a Husqvarna dealership.

    Why should a "Real Street" motorcycle have faux off-road features like an overly thick yet undersized skid plate as well as strange bars blocking part of the headlight?Svartpilen-401-2018.jpg
    Those raised tank blobs that advertise Husky are they there to do more than just injure your knees and thighs? It that what you need on Real Streets to hold parking tickets & virtual reality glasses, or do they do something else? Stand and lean against them? Kool Swedish names though, those I like.

    I kind of like it....but being a thumper, I would think it is a zoom around town and day rides - would not like to do interstate hiway trips on it. There is a Guzzi that looks kind of similar at 800cc and a V 2. Agree there are so many nice bikes out there now.
