We don't understand the Husqvarna Mille3, but we love it all the same!

Husqvarna seem to come up with some pretty cool, funky concept bikes for the EICMA show, held in Milan, Italy, in November every year. Back in 2008, it was the SMQ concept, which we quite liked. This year, it’s the icy-cool Mille3, which is fitted with a 933cc V3 three-cylinder engine and single-piece tubular steel chassis. With its long, raked-out wheelbase, very low seat, and cruiser/flattracker/off-road styling cues, it certainly looks very interesting. We don’t suppose Husqvarna will ever actually produce anything that looks like the Mille3, but as a concept, we think the bike quite works. We like it! And we do hope that 993cc V3 engine finds its way on to a production streetbike from Husqvarna at some time in the very near future...

Husky brand under BMW should concentrate on the Husqvarna brand history and not try to make "streetracer" models.
Stay with the off road/dual sport
model mix to compliment BMW's line. Not just make "me-too" models to confuse and weaken the brand.
Husqvarna need a stronger dealer network in the U.S. and can do so by offering good reliable product to regain customer confidence
in the once dominent off road brand.
