Flavor of the Month: 2011 Husaberg FS570

6.7.2019: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Welcome to the next installment of a new RSBFS feature, where we take a once a month trip out of our normal realm and look at some of the other amazing bikes the world has to offer when you leave clip ons and fairings behind. Last month we took a look at a TDR250 and this month we’re kicking things off strong, with a unicorn supermoto from an esoteric Swedish bike maker! -dc

The 2011 Husaberg FS570 graced our shores for just one model year, which is a shame, because it could have left the mark that the likes of the Husqvarna 701 Supermoto did just a few model years later.

The FS570 is essentially a big-bore dirtbike with some suspension tweaks and 17-inch sportbike wheels front and rear clad with sticky Michelin skins. The brakes were by Magura, and featured a four-pot radial caliper up front. The best part of the FS570, clearly, is its chameleon-like ability to be most things to most people, with just a few mods here and there. Granted, nobody is saying a new set of wheels for what was an $11,000 bike when new will be cheap, but it’s certainly more cost effective than buying a similarly high-end dirt bike.

The big ‘Berg made just shy of 60 horsepower if the forums are to be believed (official horsepower ratings are non-existent) out of the 566 cc laid-over thumper. In a chassis that weighed 257 pounds dry, this bike is fully capable of taking it to sport bikes, especially on tighter tracks or canyons. The Husabergs shared WP suspension components with KTM, and the swingarm was the same unit as the one on the KTM 560 SMR. They were initially intended to be the ultra-premium range from the Austrian company, but were eventually let go when Big Orange bought Husqvarna a couple years later. No need for two Swedish dirtbike companies that start with H in your portfolio, it seems.

 

From the seller:

Factory, street legal supermoto, only sold in the US for 1 year, but if you’re looking at this, you probably know all about it. Guaranteed to be the only one around. Stand out from all the other bikes!
-Clean title in hand
-Only 2900 miles
-Oil changed regularly, every few 100 miles or so.
-Valves checked 2 times. Still at factory specs. No adjustment ever needed.
Mods:
-Husaberg Race Map installed by Town & Country Cycle Center in Hamburg NJ
-FMF Powercore 4 slip on
-Upgraded fuel pump from Cycle Works
-Husaberg radiator fan kit
-Zeta handguards with LED turn signals
-SM mirrors
-Seat Concepts seat
Also comes with the original mirrors, exhaust, unmounted new parts include all new factory bodywork & seat, Shinko 705 tires,
& a brand new Fisher seat. (the most comfortable seats made!)

Located in Fairfield, CT. Will accommodate shipping but all associated costs are buyer’s responsibility.

Price: $7,000

With less than 3,000 miles on the dial and a new exhaust, race map and fuel pump, we suspect this thing will pull a little past the factory horsepower ratings. With comfort upgrades like a seat concept seat and Zeta handguards, this thing is as ready for short commutes as it is the track. As a bonus, it comes with all the stock takeoffs. With regular valve checks and oil changes, this bike is ready to make everything else in your garage seem like a compromise.

1995 Ducati Supermono (drool!) 572cc w/ 0 miles!

1995 Ducati Supermono for sale and is listed as having 0 miles!

This is almost unbelievable, because these are as elusive as those Snipe things they told us about at camp. This super rare Supermono is located in Italy and is Mike, located in Scotland, turned me on to this rare bird first thing this morning. Talk about excited, I had a grin from ear to ear all day just thinking about what a rare opportunity this is. Currently there is a bid of 25,100 pounds, which equates to $40,882.92 usd, and the reserve is still on. I can’t begin to tell you the correct valuation on this bike. Hopefully, one of you will be able to shed some light on what these are worth. My guess is that it is going to take a whole lot more than the current $40,000.00 to buy this one.

Ducati only built 65 of these over the course of a three year span from 1993 to 1995 and then two more were built between 1996 and 1997. This one shows #14 on the triple clamp badge and is said to be #59 of the 67 that were ever produced. The 1995 model’s were made to 572cc vs the previous years 550cc motor’s. Some of the articles I read, while doing research for this model, said that the 572’s are more desireable becaue they were more refined and tested vs. the earlier models. At a mere 277 wet #’s and pumping out 61hp, I bet these things would rail around the track. The top speed was said to be 141mph, but I have to believe they could easily do better with a jockey sized rider and a few modifications.

1995 Brand new and possibly the only new one left in the world. It’s number 59 and the 14th one produced in 1995 so that means it’s one of just 25 of the 572CC models produced and comes with it’s certificate of origin. Only 67 Supermono’s were ever built which makes it one of the most sought after and collectable Ducati’s ever, this really is a once in a life time chance to own a new one…..Open to offers.

I did find an older add listing one of these for sale and the price was 115,000, but I couldn’t find anything about the article such as where it was located and a date for the article. So if you know what it is worth please let us know.

Here is a great video that lets you hear what a pure racing 570 single sounds like.

In this next video watch how quickly the rider flicks the Supermono from side to side. It looks effortless in every corner. By the way, go ahead and turn up your volume before you watch it so you can hear a different kind Ducati music.

For some people these are the rarest Ducati’s ever produced and I can’t blame those who think so. I know Ducati makes a LE every year, but this is one LE I think they should make every year and let the general public have a chance.

Cheers!
