Any thing I need to know before buying 02 470E Husaberg?

I ran across a really great deal on a never been ridden 02 surplus inventory 470E Husaberg.

I've a couple questions for you fine Euro riders?

1. Is Husaberg solvent and going to be in business awhile and not go belly up like cannonade?

2. Is there any bad mechanical trait's of the 470 like grenading. Will this bike stay together?

3. Can parts be attained to maintain & repair this machine?

4. And can a causal trail rider that wants his arms to stay hooked to his shoulders enjoy this bike. "Is this bike too bad ass for a squid ride."

Thank you in advance for any info!!!! :yeehaw:

I'm taking delivery @ the color tour, how's that for a dealer. Bill, I'm still the same squid. I'll just be riding a really sweet bike. On a side note Aaron is really fired up on inheriting my 99 kdx. This bike is new, but was excess inventory that hasn’t sold.

Hey Marlin when we going riding. I just got out my 02 RM 250 that has been sitting in my garage since mid may. Took it to the Bull Gap trail system, was great. I look forward to see if there will be any rides soon, late but not to late. Congrats on your new machine.

I will be riding the color tour this coming weekend. "CCC event" It's being held at Hunt Creek / Mio trail system. Thanks for the kind words on the bike. It looks to be a fine machine I just hope getting parts won't be to tough? I buy almost everything on line anymore anyway. "For my Bikes"
