Looking closely, some bikes have jumped the shark, specifically the TXC 310, a bike fought for hard by the US team because it is a bike that US riders will buy. And they got that machine right. The TE 250 with its shortened seat height is a big success for the brand filling a niche in the market for a lower seat height performance machine. Including the 144cc kit with the 125cc two-strokes shows incentives that make sense. So maybe there isn't a Husky that can go up against a KTM 500 EXC right now, but there are not any other brands bringing that level of machine out either. We will likely have to wait till 2015 to see anything revolutionary coming out of Italy wearing the H badge. Even if the Baja is not what you were looking to see, it is a sign that Husqvarna is still pushing and taking small and thoughtful steps forward, with a view that is a little bigger than we expected. The time is right and will be ripe for some variety in the off-road market soon. Everyone sees the positioning most of the manufacturers are taking. Some of the Japanese companies are interested only in motocross and others have a hard time understanding our diverse off-road needs. This is leaving the growth of companies like Husqvarna, Beta and Gas Gas up to the products they deliver in the next few years. For anyone who likes variety and choices, as well as competition, you have to be rooting for these companies.
