Hi all, I’ve got a new Husky 701 Enduro and loving it. I changed the seat for a Seat Concepts, added rear rack and locally-made exhaust heat shield for my Andy Strapz throw-over panniers, barkbusters, Wolfman tank bag and Madstad adjustable clear windscreen for long trips. It’s light, agile and smooth. Power is quite amazing and fuel use averaging 23km/litre without being consciously economical. 17k sounds a lot but compare power to weight with a BMW800GS or Triumph Tiger800XC and it’s looking better. Much more fun off road and plenty fast enough for the street. There’s a few round here in Nelson and seem to be well regarded. Cheers, Joe
