2009 Husqvarna SM 530RR and 450RR official photos make us wish for Spring

After weeks of making us suffer with a single, low-quality image of its amazing limited edition supermotos, Husqvarna has finally delivered some respectable images. For the most part, the bikes aren’t all that different from last year’s limited edition supermotos. We’re glad they kept the bump in the flat-tracker style seat, and the twin Arrow exhaust with the clean exposed welds is one of our favorites.

Beyond the cool new wavy brakes and monobloc Brembo calipers, most of the changes are cosmetic, with the 2009 bikes getting a new front mud-guard, revised seat ergonomics, white plastics with black frame, refined radiator guards and updated graphics. Husqvarna has been taking orders since December, so we suggest giving your dealer a call before getting your hopes up.

    I’m glad to see some Husky designers avoid the brown acid that led to the SMQ.

    I like it! A step up visually from the usual supermoto, through some road wheels and tires on a dirter. The black frame and forks, grey/metal wheels and exhaust and white plastic is a nice balance.

    Check out this bike that looks much like the husky but with a street plate. It’s Chinese they are making some moves on style!

    Is anyone else noticing an absolute TON of supermoto bikes for sale on CL and other places? Seems like people bought them as a second or third bike “grownup toy” and are now trying to unload them.

    People un-load them because they A.) Have been getting too many reckless op tickets for wheelies and stoppies … or B.) Friends on In-line 4 Sportbikes have been Fileting them in the straights … lol either way i had a first year SXV550 and i loved it till she kept puking oil and running like a bultaco … This looks like a BLAST though… I’m in … Demo Days anywhere!!!
