TR 650 Terra - a single cylinder for asphalt-based and light terrain motorcycling fun. With the new TR 650 Terra Husqvarna Motorcycles extends its program of highly agile, dynamic single-cylinder motorcycles by adding another attractive new machine.
Its slim, wiry stature and masculine, dynamic design gives the new Husqvarna TR 650 Terra a progressive, light and energetic look for asphalt-based and light terrain motorcycling fun.
Single Cylinder Engine
In terms of engine technology, the TR 650 Terra relies on the tried and tested basis of the G 650 GS by BMW Motorrad. However, this liquid-cooled single-cylinder power unit with two overhead camshafts and 652 cc was extensively modified and its performance significantly enhanced for use in the new Husqvarna model. It delivers 43 kW (58 hp) at 7,250 rpm, developing its maximum torque of 60 Nm at 5,750 rpm. A reduced power version for LAMS is on offer as an ex works option with 35 kW (48 hp) at 7,250 rpm and 54 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm.
To match the dynamic performance available, the brake system consists of a single Brembo brake disc at front and rear which offers supremely solid stopping power.
High Quality Chasis
The new Husqvarna TR650 Terra is able to rely on an agile chassis based on a split-backbone tubular steel frame with remove-able rear frame and front beam bolted to the engine. Front guidance and suspension duties are dealt with by a torsionally-stiff 46 millimetre upside-down telescopic fork. The rear wheel is controlled by a torsionally-stiff dual swing arm made of pentagonal steel tubing in conjunction with a centrally-mounted rear shock with progressive linkage. In keeping with its use on asphalted roads, the Husqvarna TR 650 Terra has cast wheels made of aluminium.

Motorcycle-usa ---- "Aside from our small shifting gripe and the quirky self-retract function of the sidestand, it’s really hard to find any glaring faults with the TR650. It delivers more than adequate performance on and off-road. Plus it’s comfortable, easy-to-ride, and looks cool. Factor in its reasonable price that’s only a few hundred dollars above the Kawasaki KLR, and Husqvarna should have no problem luring buyers over to the brand."
Dirtrider ---- "Another stop later we found ourselves on some twisty, turning roads near Big Bear. This is where I felt the bike really excelled. I was quite surprised at how well the bike handled through the twisty mountain roads. I was having a blast pushing the Husky to its limits more and more, at one point even locking up the rear in a corner and leaving a nice black trail on the road. Being mostly an off-road rider I tend to use the rear brake more than the front but after I got a little more confident and trusting the front tire more, I found that I could brake the Husky harder in corners without locking up the rear. The front end felt really stable and stiffer than other dual sport bikes I have ridden. I felt like the bike could have had a little more grunt coming out of the hole but it was sufficient for an average street rider like myself."
asphaltandrubber ---- "The most obvious difference are of course the wheelsets, which for the Terra means a 21″ spoked-wheel up front, and an 18″ spoked-wheel on the back (17″ for the models with ABS). Other changes include knobbier tires, a slightly lower seat height (up to 0.6″), a slightly longer wheelbase, and of course the 6.5 lbs dry weight loss (4 lbs less when wet)."
