If l were in the market for this type of bike, this one would definately be worth some consideration.

I've thought long and hard about possibly adding the Husky 701 Enduro to my collection, but asking price was a bit more than I could handle. This is better in those regards, and still sounds to be a badass bike

ya im not big on paying for a name (what your doing with brands like husky , duck, hardley, and so on)
but they are sooooo nice
i think if i was to get another duelsport/dirtbike i would go for a wr450r just due to price and parts price (tightwad)

yes im a guy.

I'm with Silvie on this one, nice bike but too much mulha/muhla/mooola!!!
I am actually looking at a pure offroader for throwing a 250/450 sized dirtbike into the back of the truck & heading off to some of the trails we have around this area. (I'm still in love with the DRZ 400 l used to ride in the desert/mountains/single track around Vegas, so the tax on a titled bike wouldn't kill me!)

For an introductory price of $8990 (plus on-roads), the SWM RS 650 R represents plenty of bike for the bucks. That price holds until January 31, 2016, before it goes up to $9490 plus on-roads, while the bike comes with a 12-month parts and labour warranty.

Thanks [Since we are now well into February, the US price increase has already occurred...]. Nice bike.

I think a 400-450 is about perfect but I've got my deposit in for the new CSC tt250

hard to pass up an 1800$ dual sport with good parts support. parts support has always held me back from china-made stuff but CSC seems ot have that covered so I'm going to give it a go.
