Montreal Motorcycle Show

I took a break from ice riding this weekend, and went up to Montreal with Seamus for the annual bike show. We were mainly interested in looking at some of the new off-road models. There isn't a Husqvarna or Husaberg dealer in Vermont, and they both have some nice "woods" bikes.

This is the Husqvarna 450 TE. A very sanitary engine layout, fuel injected, great access to filters, very nice finish.

Here's the Husaberg 450 with the new horizontal cylinder. Also a very well presented engine. There have been good reviews on this bike and it was cool to see it. Note the plastic subframe.

This is a 2010 KTM 450 EXC special edition commemorating the most recent International Six Days Enduro held in Portugal. Nice.

This is a bike that you can't buy in the US, a Honda CBR125R, liquid cooled 4 stroke single. Nice components, although I'd like to see it with an upside down fork from the CRF. Seamus is checking it out, dreaming of another trophy...
