SWM Super Dual X test ride
On 06/29/19 my local dealer had an event called "Dual Sport Demo Days" . They recently started selling SWM and Royal Enfield so I wanted to ride the new bikes. I rode the Himalayan and it was slow and had a VERY noisy engine. Loud clatter. I also rode the SWM Super Dual and it was pretty awesome . It has lots of "Husqvarna DNA " as they put it. It was very impressive. Smooth engine with lots of power and a great sound from the dual exhaust and very little engine mechanical noise. The fueling was excellent , the handling was excellent and the brakes were very good. It's $8995. , but it does come with center stand , luggage rack , windshield , and crashbars. In Europe and Australia it comes with hard sidecases standard also.
I liked it . It reminded me of my favorite 650 single - my old Aprilia Pegaso .
Unfortunately they are coming to America when the bike market is bottomed out. Bad timing but hopefully they will succeed .
