Check out Husky's latest release at the 2011 EICMA show in our Husqvarna Concept MOAB Video.
Scrambler motorcycles maintain a special place in two-wheeled history. Husqvarna gives scrambler aesthetics a modern twist with its latest concept – the MOAB. Revealed at the 2011 EICMA 2011 show in Milan, the Husky MOAB pays homage to classic scramblers from the 60s and 70s, resembling bodywork and color schemes from Steve McQueen’s classic H400.
Husky named its scrambler street concept after one of the most renowned riding spots in America – the desert surrounding Moab, Utah. Drawing thousands of off-roaders throughout the year, the desert served as inspiration when it came to design elements for the bike. Featuring a red tank, spacious seat, yellow number panels and a stripped-down frame, the new Husky is going back to the basics with its street bike twist on a classic dirt bike.
The Moab sources a 650cc engine housed within a perimeter frame. It includes progressive linkage on the swingarm and comes with 17-inch wheels that sport ‘semi-knobby’ tires for some off-road use. High handlebars provide a neutral seating position for riders, with a digital instrument cluster on the upper crossbar offering instant readout.

Very nice.
Build it.
Small details will yeild themselves to my wrench. The overall balance of the design is perfect.

Hit or miss? Miss! That front fender is a weird contraption that looks nothing like a fender, plus, it severely detracts the bikes other nice features.

The front number plate should be flushed down the toilet ASAP, and the rear fender is too short and odd looking. Ir should be longer and contour the diameter of the rear tire (for the old -style look).

Nice "concept" that uses too many ultra modern stylistic clues. Bike is for the riding public, not for the Geggenheim Museum.
