New Husky Dealer in Fresno

Fresno and the surrounding area haven't had a Husky motorcycle dealership in I don't know how long.

Fresno BMW will be the new Husky Motorcycle Dealer at their new location in a few months. I talked with Keith in parts at the Fresno BMW Dealership today and he confirmed they will use the east half of their new Building as the showroom for the new Husky's. Tanner will be selling them and Steve in BMW Service will be servicing them.

Husky makes a very nice dual sport called the TE610. There are a number of reviews about this bike on advrider.com and thumpertalk.com

There are soft bags available for this bike, dirt bagz, and a larger fuel tank from IMS. This is one of the more high performance 600-650cc dual sports out there and give all of us just one more choice in bikes. Here is what the bike looks like:

Is the BMW dealership in Modesto also picking up Husky? I hope so.

Re: New Husky Dealer in Fresno

Jim, I visited the brand new BMW/Husky dealership in Fresno and it's very nice. About 3 or 4 times the size of the old place. At least as nice as any I've been to. Homer also mentioned that they will be selling a scooter line in addition to Husky and BMW. I guess BMW bought husqvarna and hence the shared dealerships.

Yes. Keith said something about a scooter line as well. I don't know if BMW's ownership of Husky means all BMW dealerships have an opportunity for a dealership or not but I'm glad Fresno is getting one.

Owners of the TE610 love the bike even though '07 models have a few issues with the air box and speedo. Don't know if the '08 models fixed these problems or not but the Husky web site mentions many changes to this model for '08.

Re: New Husky Dealer in Fresno

So, where's the new place? Are they migrating to a new building or keeping both places open? I think I remember something about a new building off Clovis avenue but I didn't know it actually happened.

Thanks,

Re: New Husky Dealer in Fresno

Hmm...when I found out that BMW bought Husky I asked around and no dealership could give me a straight answer.
Now it's finally happened.
Cool. I thought that 610 looked badazz.
I haven't been to the new building yet but I hope things have gotten better.
They treated me like crap when I tried to buy a bike there.

Thanks,
5615 E. Westover on the corner of Westover and Clovis Ave. just 1.5 miles north of hwy. 180.

They'll be operating solely out of the new building.
