Based on Husqvarna's TE 630 dual sport model, the Superdual uses the same Husky-derived 600cc liquid-cooled DOHC single cylinder engine as the SWM RS 650R, but ups power to 54hp (40.2kW) thanks mainly to the underslung exhaust.
"There's definitely a gap in the adventure market for a quality single-cylinder machine that's capable of comfortable long-distance riding," says SWM Australia's Stephen Tuff.
"SWM have nailed the brief with a strong and proven engine, sleek adventure styling and good fuel capacity."
That fuel capacity is 19 litres, with seat height listed at 860mm and dry weight at 159kg. Standard features on the Superdual include a 6-speed transmission, hand guards, adjustable front and rear suspension, engine skid plate and protection bars, spoked rims (19-inch Fr, 17-inch Rr) and Brembo brakes.
"We expect the Superdual to sell in good numbers because it's the bike riders have been asking for," continued Tuff. "It's got everything a solid single adventure bike needs and it comes in at a very competitive price."
The SWM Superdual lists for $9,990 (plus ORC) and is backed by a 2-year/20,000km parts and labour warranty. A $1,500 optional GT Kit adds LED fog lights and Givi panniers and brackets.
The SWM Superdual will start arriving in authorised SWM dealers from late May. See your dealer for further details, or go to: swmmotorcycles.com.au
