I am going to purchase a new husqvarna. I am looking for imput as to which one would be best. I really like the 450 and 510's, but am wondering if a 630 would be better suited for in town riding. The 450's and 510's are just so damn good looking and so much lighter. Thanks.

Husky's rock. Just depends on what you want to use it for. The 610/630 is better suited for town riding, but the race bikes sure are fun!

i used to own a 610 and I liked it but I have ridden the 510 and it is sweet! I would personally choose the 450 or 510 purely because of how light they are!

according to their website the 511 is heavier than the 630?
Highly unlikely. Claimed dry weight for 511 is 260lbs, 630 is 348lbs dry.

I have made up my mind. I am going with the 2010 450smr. From what I hear, they rev faster do to the shorter stroke than the 510. $5499 plus $370 in dealer fees and $200 for the destriction and fuel inj. mapping for a total of$6069. from Heinen's in Osseo MN. Picking it up thursday. Had to buy the wife a scooter in order to broker the deal.

ON gizmag they are showing the new 900cc husky.

I think it has been touched on here before but they are painting it up and getting it ready for retail. It a bit rough around the edges but still worth looking at.
The Nuda is not coming to the U.S. until late 2012. I've spoken with 2 different Husky dealers in Illinois and they both said the same thing. Hall's Cycles sales rep had to return several deposits already due to Husqvarna not wanting to send the bike stateside yet. I want this bike bad. Love the geometry on this nasty bitch but... :nutkick:

My vote = 510....GUARANTEE you will get off that bike giggling with a huge grin....at least that is how I am every time I ride my buddy's.

Sorry just realized you are buying the 450. ENJOY!
