        Makes sense Stefan hasn't got a Silver brand in his portfolio ...ATM !
        Maybe a price fighting Sub Brand for the trials market to support GasGas

        Maybe he'll go for Norton next ....there is no Black in the range at present....
        as his E bike play ???

                Reminds me of Murdoch's "Super League"... Take the money and run... Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
                Carmichael's American, Iván Cervantes's Spanish, Triumph's English... Made in Thailand. Recipe for failure.

                To be a rival; it's not enough to run at the rear; they need to compete: So-what? Carbon frame? Not enough.
                Imo; they should purchase-rights from Husky for it's WR430 2T & re-manufacture that again. I'd buy-it again.

                      I suspect they will do a good job. They took their time with the road bikes and didn't do anything radical unlike BMW who tried a whole redesign. They don't have competing interests just bikes and they want to expand the range. I hope the bikes are good and they stick with it.

                        The more I think about this, the less sense it makes.

                        One of the reasons BMW bailed out of Husqvarna ownership is that the world dirt bike market was only holding steady in a growing population (ie: proportionally shrinking), and there’s no shortage of money wasted by competent companies trying to develop dirt bikes ( including Harley Davidson, BMW, Cannondale, Ducati, Aprilia at various times).
                        Off the top of my head, I can’t actually think of a road bike company who has moved successfully into dirt bikes since the 1960s.

                        The obvious answer is that they are looking at electric bikes, but that still has all the same problems with learning dirt bikes and dirt bikers, AND the issues that nobody has yet overcome with electric bikes.

                        I hope that they bring out a killer line up of fast, fun, reliable bikes that take the market forward a big step … but I am not holding my breath.

                          Have to agree Spac.
                          There's a heap of R&D ahead of any road bike maker. They would be better off going straight to e-bikes if they want to play in the dirt.
