BMW Husqvarna to make prototype debut in Lovere at the weekend

Posted:

BMW Husqvarna Motorsport is preparing to send a prototype bike into action for the first time in the upcoming round of the FIM Enduro World Championship (EWC) in Lovere, Italy on 22nd/23rd May.

The bike, which will compete in the E2 class at the event, is built around the Husqvarna chassis concept and powered by the innovative and highly capable 450 cc four-stroke engine developed by BMW Motorrad.

Rainer Thoma, President and CEO of Husqvarna Motorcycles, explains the decision: ‰ÛÏBack in February we signed up to race in the E2 class of the Enduro World Championship under the new name BMW Husqvarna Motorsport. This collaboration of BMW Motorrad and Husqvarna Motorcycles aims to pool the two brands‰Ûª expertise in off-road competition for 450 cc four-stroke machines.

"The forthcoming debut appearance of the prototype bike is the logical next step following a very promising phase of testing. Although our leading rider Juha Salminen will have to sit out this coming weekend through injury, we‰Ûªre approaching the event in optimistic mood with our prototype bike, our other regular rider Marko Tarkkala and stand-in man Andreas Lettenbichler.‰Û
