2013 Husqvarna TR650 Strada: Cool Wall Vote & Discuss

Husqvarna TR 650 Strada and TR 650 Terra – two powerful characters for on-road and off-road riding.

With the new TR 650 Strada and the new TR 650 Terra,


Husqvarna Motorcycles extends its program of highly agile, dynamic single-cylinder motorcycles by adding two attractive new machines.

Their slim, wiry stature and masculine, dynamic design gives the new Husqvarna TR 650 models a progressive, light and energetic look, whether as the "Terra" version for light terrain or as the "Strada" version for asphalt-based motorcycling fun. At the same time, the two new Husqvarna models are clearly set apart from their competitors with their outstanding overall package of handling and riding dynamics as well as in terms of design. Along with their relatively low weight, a powerful single-cylinder engine and an agile, directionally-stable chassis they embody the passion of motorcycling and the fascinating world of Husqvarna Motorcycles.

Outstandingly powerful single-cylinder engine in the BMW Motorrad mould.

In terms of engine technology, the TR 650 Strada and TR 650 Terra rely on the tried and tested basis of the G 650 GS by BMW Motorrad. However, this liquid-cooled single-cylinder power unit with two overhead camshafts and 652 cc was extensively modified and its performance significantly enhanced for use in the two new Husqvarna models. It delivers 43 kW (58 hp) at
7,250 rpm, developing its maximum torque of 60 Nm at 5,750 rpm. For those countries with graduated licencing, there is also there is also a reduced power version on offer as an ex works option with 35 kW (48 hp) at 7,250 rpm and 54 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm.

I guess BMW wasn't ready to write off its investment in the XCountry? I liked the XCountry, my wife had one for a couple years. But thumbs down on BMW for dressing up a 2007 bike and presenting it as "new". Uncool.

After much thought, I went with a marginal, Cool on this one.

I'm not sure where Husqvarna is headed with their motorcycle line up, they used to be strictly focused on off-road bikes, but now there seems to be a real split in the company on direction... Personally, I think it's a great idea for Husqvarna to offer some street bikes, they are owned by BMW and BMW has made A LOT of progress in the past 10 years with their street bike line. But Husqvarna seems to be a following BMW rather than leading or going off in their own direction. Husqvarna street bikes are "quirky" to me in the way KTM's street bikes are.

That said, I'd definately jump at the chance of taking the 2013 Husqvarna TR650 Strada out for a ride! 650cc, 58hp, 400lbs and it gets 88mpg? That alone saves it for me. :D

Thanks for everyone voting on this model in the heat of the summer vacation. I would say based on the discussion thus far, Husqvarna really, really has their work cut out for them to sell this bike to the public... will the public accept, want and buy the TR650's; that's the question. But for now, the 2013 Husqvarna TR650 Strada on the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall ends up as a "Ho-Hum" type of bike and ends as the 2nd last Cool bike tied with the Can-Am Spyder.
