Anyone hear anything on the updated 4-strokes Husky is working on? I've heard some info on the 250 but I need a 400. Are they going to produce a lighter weight version of a 400 with electic start?

I would be surprised if Husky made a new 400 for 2002. They have been working on/racing the new 250 for about a year in europe, but I've only seen 1 photo of a left-side drive 400 (and that may have been made of balsa wood). The prototype 250 can been seen in photos on the husqvarna.it web page. Husky could surprise us all though.

i bought a 360 2 stroke last week and was in the shop today talking to the dealer. he said that they are coming out with a 250, 400, and 570 all with electric start and supposedly significantly lighter. if so i may get one of those as well. take care.

Like TM-Enduro I too would be surprized if they came out with a new 400/570. When I was looking for a 01 TE400, no one could tell me anything about the 02 TE 400/570. Most of them seem to think that husky had put all thier time into tooling up for the 250. I will say that if it is half as good as lead to believe, it will be tough to get a hold of. It took me 3 wks and 11 state to find a 01 TE400.

I still wouldn't right off the possibility of all new 2002 models though. Husky have always released new models several months later than the other manufacturers, which gives them a fair bit of time. Seems like the have some sort of policy, like releaseing a 2002 in 2002 instead of mid 2001

I read in a local rag that Stefan Merriman had test ridden the 2002 model 4 strokes. The rags' impression of his impression
is that they are significantly different from the 01 models. Somewhat more yzf like in the power delivery dept. The guys in my local husky shop have said the husky 250f will be out this year. I'll believe it when I see them on the showroom floor.

I was hoping Husky would get it right. The wife isn't going to be happy about this.

Wow the new TC 250 is so NICE looking I'm waiting awhile but my next bike will definetly be a 250F MX'er of some kind. I really like the fact that husky made it E button. It will be interesting to see it out on the track and to find out what its performance is like.
