If you’ve never had the chance to ride a supermoto, you are seriously missing out. OEMs don’t help much in this case – there are very few factory supermotos available off the dealership floor. The best current option is from Husky, and if you’re in the market you’re going to want one from 217 at the latest, as that’s when they swapped the motor for the KTM Duke unit – complete with two counterbalancers and an increase in power. This 2018 model is the one you want…if you like to stand out. It’s been well modified, plus it’s got quite a cosmetic makeover.
This example has a full Rottweiler Performance intake kit, emissions delete, and Power Commandever V, which must improve it from “fun to ride” to “truly joyous”. There’s also several big modifications like a full set of crash protection and an Arrow exhaust and smaller mods like the tail tidy and a Seat Concepts seat. The graphics can be removed and the sale includes all of the stock parts. The seller estimates that he’s spent at least $3k in aftermarket accessories. This would be a hell of a commuter or go-kart track day weapon – it weighs 320 pounds and that giant single puts out 74 horsepower!
