Don't know if you noticed this news in the UK site MCN:

Husaberg ditches supermotos after selling 7 in 2010

Husaberg has ditched the last of its supermoto models after selling just 7 in the UK last year.
The innovative FS 570 four-stroke was the last of the Swedish supermotos to remain in the 2011 lineup, but in spite of favourable reviews and its novel laid-down single cylinder engine, it was able to shift only four units.
More encouragingly Husaberg has used its now 100% enduro-focus to refresh its entire 2012 range of two and four strokes.

As I understand it, they will not manufacture supermotos for any part of the world, not only for UK.

That really sucks. You can't blame them for dropping the model with those kind of numbers. I wonder how many 2011 units have been sold in the US:hmmm: I've been wanting one.

you can't tell me those sales numbres add up... 7 bikes sold in 2010 in all of the UK...

around here the FS has been quite popular both on the streets and in the racing scene.

sounds to me like they they just want to ditch it so they got more resources to put in their enduro range, which is a shame because husaberg was one of the few manufacturers left that offered a race oriented supermoto out of the box.

I work at a Berg dealership. I have not heard about this yet. It's really unfortunate if its true, the FS 570 is really an awesome bike.

FS570s are still listed on the USA berg site.

The British site doesn't even mention supermoto.

Here in Italy the situation is the same.
FS570 isn't available anymore.

2 freinds of mine and me, bought the last 3 Bergs available in the north Italian dealer.

Also Husaberg Italy has closed, now everything is managed directly by KTM.
