SWM returns with SM450R Supermoto

The Italian brand SWM(Speedy Working Motorcycles) started back in 1971 building Enduro bikes, sadly in 1984 they closed down. But now they are back!

The man behind the restart of SWM is Ampelio Macchi, an engineer who worked for Aprilia, Cagiva and Husqvarna. With the help of Chinese company Shineray SWM rented the old Husqvarna factory and bought the rights to produce the pre-BMW Husqvarna Enduro and Supermoto models. They have 6 models in their lineup including the SM450R Supermoto.

Looks familiar you might think. Well that's because it is basicly a 2010 model Husqvarna SMR450 with new design plastics. Why should you get excited about a bike that produced 4 years ago and gets a rerelease?

The price. SWM is going to be offering the SWM SM450R around the €6000 mark.

That's about the same as a second hand 2010 Husqvarna SMR450. The bike it is based on is one of the best Supermoto bikes that was ever produced.

The only thing that we don't get is why SWM doesn't offer a SM500R. In the past the Husqvarna SMR510's where always more popular among street riders than the 450's. They do offer the 500 in an Enduro model so I really don't get why they don't offer the 500 option for their Supermoto lineup.

Husqvarna FS501 concept by Supermoto Central

Husqvarna released some pretty cool bikes at the EICMA show this week but I am still dissapointed they don't want to release a hardcore street Supermoto.

Decided to spent some time in photoshop to convince Husqvarna Motorcycles that they should offer us a hardcore street legal Supermoto. Check out the Husqvarna FS501 Concept by Supermoto Central
