link.png Ktm compra Husqvarna...e adesso?


L'accordo è stato siglato la settimana scorsa. Husqvarna passa nelle mani dell'austriaca Ktm. Una sorta di fulmine a ciel sereno...Le voci dicono che BMW ha deciso di mettere in vendita Husqvarna perchè troppo onerosa per la Casa tedesca e Ktm si è fatta avanti comprando la famosa azienda. I ben informati dicono che per quest'anno non cambieranno le cose, a livello sportivo, ma dal 2014....

Mentre all'interno degli uffici e degli stabilimenti del varesotto tutti si interrogano sul futuro dell'azienda, la Speedbrain ha diramato un comunicato per specificare che l'attività sportiva del team della Dakar, almeno una parte, va avanti. Così come eventuali clienti, con le moto Production. Le moto della Dakar, quando rientreranno dal Sud America, andranno nelle officine della Speedbrain e da lì proseguiranno la loro corsa verso il successo, affrontando la nuova stagione di Coppa del Mondo. E intanto comunica il lancio di un concorso...il premio in palio è niente meno che....un sogno che si potrà avverare....in Qatar.

Il comunicato in inglese è pubblicato qui di seguito.

The Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain is preparing for a thrilling rally season.

This year´s FIM Cross Country Rally World Championship kicks off in only a couple of weeks.

The opening race, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, marks the beginning of the 2013 campaign on 5 April. The Arab emirate has been a place of success for the Speedbrain riders Joan Barreda and Paulo Goncalves a year ago when both stormed the podium. Joan and Paulo aboard their Husqvarna TE449RR by Speedbrain machines will be contenders again at the upcoming edition.

So what about their ambitions and the chance to take revenge? Abu Dhabi will see the Iberian duo up against some of their rivals from the recent Rally Dakar. With temperatures expected to be around 40 degrees celcius during the race, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge promises to be a fierce battle over the first silverware of the season.

Meanwhile the Speedbrain customer program in terms of the production racers is running at full throttle. In Abu Dhabi, Speedbrain customer pilots on the 2013 production racer will compete alongside the factory pros aboard the Husqvarna TE449RR. These pilots are not participating with the podium in mind, but rather aiming at a solid result and plenty of fun at one of the most spectacular desert rallies in the world.

Speedbrain is offering the Husqvarna TE449RR production race bike for the FIM Rally World Championship 2013 in two ways: either for purchase or on a leasing base (bike & assistance).
