Husqvarna Concept Baja Motorcycle

| January 20, 2012

Check out this cool ’70s-style Baja retro machine from Husqvarna that was revealed at the New York motorcycle show this week. It’s a dual-purpose bike powered by a 650cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected four-stroke motor with a five-speed transmission, and it’s nestled in a perimeter steel frame.

It has Brembo disc brakes, single-shock linkage rear suspension, 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels, and an LED crossbar instrument display.

Husqvarna calls it Concept Baja and it is just that – a concept bike.


The only thing this bike is missing is Malcolm Smith at the controls.

Modern-looking headlight assembly.

Even the pipe and rear fender have that old-school Husky look.

LED crossbar instruments.

Unfortunately, it’s not a two-stroke.

Fuel cap isn’t old-school.

Modern shape, old-school paint.

The massive front brake should have any problems slowing this bike down.

Low seat should be appealing to many riders.
