TOPIC: New ADV bike from SWM

Re: New ADV bike from SWM 3 months, 1 week ago #579244

I'm happy with my SWM 500 so far-I've taken enough of it apart to know it is essentially a Husqvarna -before BMW fooked Huskies up.
SWM uses Chinese money and an Italian factory to build.

As I said before, all products have globally sourced components - wake up!

A SWM for £3.5 less than a KTM 500 EXC makes sense for most people, let's face it, very few of us can ride a full on Enduro bike to its limit so why pay premium prices?

Umm, yea, did anyone say otherwise?.

Got me a bit confused here, do you mean £3.50, £350 or £3500?, if you can show me a SWM500 for £4349 I would be impressed

SWM 500r is 5699 otr as opposed to 7849 for the equivalent KTM, so its a couple of grand..

SWM500R - 2016 prices when I purchased......£3k less than KTM at list (not £3.5K - I got over excited!!)
Expect SWM prices to creep up year on year as people realise what a very good proposition they are.

Looks ok, that. Although colouring and style are right out of Mattighofen, frankly.

Re: New ADV bike from SWM 2 months, 1 week ago #584193

and that's a bad thing?
