im pretty new to the supermoto stuff. ive had dirtbikes sense i was 5. got into gokart racing when i was 10 then got out of it at around 16. im 21 now and really looking for a supermoto bike that has power and street leagle. right now im leaning twords the husqvarna 610. they had a used on at the local dealership for $6199 with just under 1000 miles on it. it was there demo bike i guess the guy said. he told me it had been rejeted and it had a nice sounding pipe on it. i forgot brand it wasnt somthing im familiar with. in your guy's opinion are they good bikes for short street rides? mostly canyon runs? cuz i live like 2 blocks away from Turnbull Canyon. thanks for your guy's input and if there are other bikes you would recomend please let me know thanks

Welcome!!
In my opinion, the Husky 610 is a rock-solid street-tard. It'll do longer trips as well, maintenance is a breeze and it's a blast to ride.
If you're really only going for short trips, I would look into the 510 as well, they're lighter and more powerful so even more fun... Can't go wrong with either one!! GL.

Hey, I agree the Husky is a great bike, I have 2 restored ones from the 80's. if you want a used one try Fletchers Cycles in Memphis, TN he is a great source for new and used including vintage parts and bikes. He may be abel to find you a sweet deal. Let me know what happens

It just depends on your budget, the New Ktm 690 is getting really good reviews. You could also pick up a low miles 625SMC these days pretty resonable. So many great bikes so little time. If I had a Husky I would want it to look just like this one. The owner says it's an amazing ride, I tend to believe him on that. And it's PLATED!

if your not a pro rider who is given bikes to destroy on any given season then ANY bike is super fun on the track... especially the 610, ive done a small parkinglot track and it had to have been the most fun ive had on my bike, then i jumped on a ktm 450 just to compare and my bike was wayyyyy smoother, in and out of corners. the ktm was just a little stickier to the ground... it had slicks though and i was running conti's.
