Interesting and dramatic photo, looks like the rider is scaling a near vertical rock face....that is until you notice the trees and shrubs in the back ground are some 22.5 degrees off centre to the right......then you realize, he is basically riding over a flat surface.....

Apart from that, not much to say about the bike. Afraid dirt bikes don't do anything for me, and since we still haven't gotten our oft called for "meh" option, I guess I will pass on voting on this one.
Always ask why.

The same bike seems to be sold as either a Husaberg or a Husqvarna. I guess it depends which logo you'd prefer on the side of the tank..

I noticed this too, and although it's not uncommon for trees to grow at a slant on a mountain face, comparing the angle of the cloud layers against the angle of the trees makes it pretty obvious the photo's been altered.

That said, I certainly wouldn't call the actual angle of ascent a flat surface, it's better than 45 degrees. And I'll say this too, although this photo isn't telling the truth, I'm positive this bike -- and a lot of other dirt bikes -- can and do climb angles even more extreme. Two-strokers are just ballsy machines, no two ways about it, this has got 50cc's more displacement than my old KDX and that green machine was a BEAST.

I'd go Awesome, but the electric start feels like a ploy to rope in a buying demographic with slightly deeper pockets -- a feature meant more for the sales floor instead of the mountain or brush. Add to that the PR stunt with the doctored photo, which is just silly, and this drops from an Awesome to a Cool.

With Christmas weekend and New Years on the calendar, I thought maybe this needed a bump...

Only two more days to vote! And with only 14 votes so far, there's still plenty of room for this dirty little smoker to go either way.

I voted: Awesome

Wow, imagine riding a motorcycle that can scale rock surfaces, go through rivers and pound through the trails in the middle of BFN (BFE for all you Americans) and get you back home. That's pretty amazing and to me that deserves an awesome vote.

That aside, I really like the blue rim look, that's very cool and the whole cleanliness of the design and mixed with the radical graphics, it just works for me. :D

Same thing, just not "Egypt" but "Nowhere"

Yet another difference between Canadians and Americans! No idea why you say BFE, why Egypt?!

2014 Husaberg TE300

Awesome (3 points) 38% [ 8 ]
Cool (2 points) 48% [ 10 ]
Uncool (1 point) 14% [ 3 ]
Fail (0 point) 0% [ 0 ]

Total votes : 21

= a Coolwall Factor of 74.6%

NOTES: And so the last TMW Cool Wall bike of 2013 is up and finished. I sure hope you enjoyed the 52 bikes we put up this year to vote on and hopefully brought you all a little closer to being visual motorcycle masters! The 2014 Husaberg TE300, like Superman, can scale near vertical walls (well, as shown in the rotated stock photo) carve new canyon paths and go anywhere at the flick of your wrist.

The first bike of the 2014 TMW Cool Wall is now up for voting on, have fun!!

Dunno, that's just always been the sentiment. I suppose Egypt just seems, well, really far.

I've often wondered if ever there was an American businessman on a trip to Egypt, who showed up for a meeting and got a really awful parking spot, and started to tell someone "Yeah, sorry I'm late, I had to park BF...wait..."
