Husqvarna and Husaberg have announced a new partnership today. This comes after BMW Motorrad and Husqvarna’s ways separated earlier this year when BMW sold Husqy to Pierer Industries AG, which also owns KTM and Husaberg.
“Following the acquisition of Husqvarna by Pierer Industries AG and after careful analysis and evaluation of all aspects, it was decided to reunite what came out of shared roots 25 years ago,” Husqvarna explained the partnership with Husaberg in its press release today.
Husqvarna will enter a new era by combining its own rich heritage with Husaberg’s technology.
The new generation of Husqvarna models is already in progress. The new model range, with brand new design and the latest technology is being developed and will be offered in the segments Enduro, Motocross and Sportminicycles. There will also be exciting, newly developed products in the Supermoto segment.
The new line-up will be presented at the international EICMA show in Milan in early November this year.
As of October 2013, the new group company “Husqvarna Sportmotorcyle GmbH” based in Mattighofen, Austria, will be fully operational in the production and sale of the new model range to the Husqvarna network of dealers and distributors. Parts supply and customer service for all Husqvarna models up to and including model year 2013 are guaranteed for the years to come and will remain at the current business location in Biandronno (VA), Italy.
