With the new TR 650 Strada and the
new TR 650 Terra, Husqvarna Motorcycles extends its program of highly agile,
dynamic single-cylinder motorcycles by adding two attractive new machines.
Their slim, wiry stature and masculine, dynamic design gives the new Husqvarna
TR 650 models a progressive, light and energetic look, whether as the "Terra"
version for light terrain or as the "Strada" version for asphalt-based
motorcycling fun. At the same time, the two new Husqvarna models are clearly set
apart from their competitors with their outstanding overall package of handling
and riding dynamics as well as in terms of design. Along with their relatively
low weight, a powerful single-cylinder engine and an agile, directionally-stable
chassis they embody the passion of motorcycling and the fascinating world of
In terms of engine technology, the TR 650 Strada and TR 650 Terra rely on the
tried and tested basis of the G 650 GS by BMW Motorrad. However, this
liquid-cooled single-cylinder power unit with two overhead camshafts and
652 cc was extensively modified and its performance significantly enhanced for
use in the two new Husqvarna models. It delivers 43 kW (58 hp) at 7,250 rpm,
developing its maximum torque of 60 Nm at 5,750 rpm. For those countries with
graduated licencing, there is also there is also a reduced power version on
offer as an ex works option with 35 kW (48 hp) at 7,250 rpm and 54 Nm of torque
at 5,750 rpm.
The single-cylinder engine has been
modified with a wide range of measures to hone it for its athletic, dynamic
purpose. In addition to various other improvements, such features as a modified
electronic fuel-injection system, altered camshafts and an increased compression
ratio due to modified piston and cylinder head geometries ensure powerful
propulsion, high revving and spontaneous response. Nonetheless, with its exhaust
system in stainless steel including two rear silencers and a closed-loop 3-way
catalytic converter, the engine provides not just an especially high level of
single-cylinder riding fun but also excellent fuel efficiency and environmental
In conjunction with the constant-mesh 5-speed gearbox, the powerful and
high-revving single-cylinder engine in the Husqvarna TR 650 Strada puts in an
especially impressive performance on country roads, while a full torque curve
and spontaneous response also allow supreme off-road excursions over light
terrain on the TR 650 Terra.
The new Husqvarna models TR 650 Strada and TR 650 Terra are able to rely on an
agile chassis based on a split-backbone tubular steel frame with remove-able
rear frame and front beam bolted to the engine.
Front guidance and suspension duties are dealt with by a torsionally-stiff 46
millimetre upside-down telescopic fork. The rear wheel is controlled by a
torsionally-stiff dual swing arm made of pentagonal steel tubing in conjunction
with a centrally-mounted rear shock with progressive linkage. In keeping with
its use on asphalted roads, the Husqvarna TR 650 Strada has cast wheels made of
aluminium while the TR 650 Terra reflects its off-road suitability with a
centrally-mounted rear shock with progressive linkage. Generous suspension
travel of 190 millimetres at the front and rear makes for easy handling and a
high level of directional stability combined with excellent comfort and off-road
To match the dynamic performance available, the brake system consists of a
single-disc brake at front and rear which offers supremely solid stopping power.
The new Husqvarna TR 650 Strada is fitted as standard with ABS, while the new
Husqvarna TR 650 Terra can likewise feature ABS if this is ordered as an ex
works option. The ABS is disengageable for special uses.
To reflect their high level of riding dynamics, the lines of the new Husqvarna
TR 650 Strada and TR 650 Terra have been given a particular dynamic emphasis in
terms of design. Although they embody masculine athleticism, their
clearly-defined shaping nonetheless conveys a sense of agility and lightness.
While the light-alloy cast wheels in the TR 650 Strada embody the active riding
character of a road bike, the spoke wheels combined with a high fender on the
front wheel reveal the dual sport ambitions of the TR 650 Terra.
The two new Husqvarna models have a robust, masculine appearance through
selective use of black-coated chassis elements such as frame and swingarm. In
addition, red side trim elements for the TR 650 Terra, and a black side panel
for the TR 650 Strada, in combination with the Strada's low white front fender,
lend a unique appearance to each.
The bikes' high aspirations in terms of riding dynamics are underscored by the
light-gray sand-cast engine cases, providing a fascinating technical contrast in
conjunction with the hallmark Husqvarna red cylinder head. Further accents are
provided the anodized-silver upside-down forks and the end caps of the twin
exhausts, which proudly exhibit the Husqvarna logo.
The new Husqvarna TR 650 Strada and
TR 650 Terra are manufactured at the Husqvarna Motorcycles plant in Cassinetta
di Biandronno, northern Italy.
