I believe major engine parts(Kymco) are fairly scarce these days. Similar to most the Italian Husky bikes but the 449/511/BMW motor especially. Consumables are easily attained still. Had some quirks but a decent trail bike from most accounts.

Cheers availability of parts is my main concern but seems like there readily available and long range tanks for adventure rides 👍

You would have to love an adventure if you want to take an old Husky far from the car.

There is a fair bit of crap put out there about husky reliability. Do your maintenance and it will be fine. Had a 2011 te511 for 7 years, was a good bike. I had a couple of minor electrical issues, but Iím fairly sure they updated the wiring loom on the 2012s which should solve that one. Some of the wiring is a bit light and can wear or break. Genuine parts can be a bit pricey but I didnít need many
