One note... that review is for the 701 LR... long range. The extra girth & weight changes things a lot.

 I get a consistent 55+ MPH with my Enduro... over 150 miles between stops. I'm well due for a break by then anyway... I can't imagine doing 350 miles at a time with no rest. But again, &'m 63 now & not in as much of a hurry  :002:

No doubt the seat is also a limiting factor. There are aftermarket but @5'9" I can't tolerate much of a height increase.

 Kinda on the same note tho... with ~10" F/R suspension travel, when adjusted to the soft side is a very plush ride. Just sitting on the bike drops the seat 4". Added a 1.5" lowering link & it's one of the few "dual sport" bikes that us vertically challenged can manage.

Husqvarna dealers in UK are rare as hens teeth, what they like in US, how far to your nearest dealers?

Closest one is ~45 minutes away... next (my selling dealer) is ~75 minutes.

 Far more common are KTM dealers. Since the Husky 701 & KTM 690 are the same bike save some trim pieces getting mechanical spares isn't a problem. Also, much like Triumph OEM spares are available from the aftermarket. Parts are very reasonably priced too, much to my surprise. Complete electric starter assembly for example is $170, for Triumph 800 $412  :012:

Hah! But if American miles per gallon are less than imperial mpg, then so are American miles per hour less than English mph! Yes? Errrr ....  :087:

Reviving an older thread, to get back on the original topic and away from dirt bikes...

One thing on the new 1200 motor is shaft vs chain.

With chain drive, the new 1200 could be the heart of a new 1200 Tiger Sport, basically like a Speed Trip with taller suspension and more room and comfort for 2-up.

And if they also do another version with a shaft, there could be a replacement for the ADV 1200 crowd  (Explorer replacement or whatever you call the heavy 1200 Tiger).
