The highly anticipated SWM Superdual is set to storm the Australia adventure bike market with a combination of proven performance and specific adventure styling.
Born from the Husqvarna TE 630 and manufactured in the same production plant in Lombadia, Italy, the SWM Superdual shares the same highly-acclaimed 600cc liquid-cooled DOHC 4-valve four-stroke engine as the SWM RS 650R. This engine won many fans in its first incarnation with Husqvarna and it’s impressing again in the RS 650R. Now with slightly more horsepower due to the under-slung exhaust configuration on the Superdual, this 600cc engine is the solid foundation upon which this adventure bike was built.
“It’s been said that adventure riding is the new four-wheel driving and the rise in popularity of riders seeking adventure-style motorcycling cannot be denied,” stated SWM Australia’s Stephen Tuff.
“There’s definitely a lot of appeal with riding directly from your garage at home and out into a new adventure. The road miles are handled in comfort and when it’s time go off-road the Superdual has the right dirt bike qualities to handle the trail and keep it fun.”
Revealed in Australia for the first time at the recent Moto Expo in Melbourne drawing a huge amount of interest. The sleek design of the under-slung exhaust, engine protection bar design and windscreen give the Superdual an unmistakable and incredibly attractive adventure style.
The Superdual adds unique adventure design and functionality to offer the latest in thumping-single adventure riding. With 19-litre fuel capacity, 6-speed transmission, 860mm seat height and dry weight of 159kg, the SWM Superdual is bound to attract riders who want an adventure bike that can behave like a dirt bike yet offer the comfort that long distance riding demands.
Standard features include hand guards, adjustable front and rear suspension with external shock spring pre-load adjuster, skid plate, Brembo brakes and an engine that pumps out 54 horsepower via GET ignition and a D45 Mikuni throttle body.
A Superdual GT Kit will be available for a recommended retail price of $1,500 including GST which contains Givi panniers and brackets and LED fog lights.
The SWM Superdual will hit the market at the very competitive recommended retail price of $9,990 including GST plus ORC and 24 months or 20,000km parts and labour warranty.
The Superdual will be available in Australia late May 2017 from authorized SWM dealers.
