The Husqvarna Concept MOAB is the modern re-interpretation of the scrambler, the bike that lies at the heart of the Husqvarna history and its unique style. Tradition, style, and performance. These are the features that captured the identity and shaped the history of the brand that became the model and reference point for all off-road bikes in the sixties and seventies. The Husqvarna MOAB can trace its origins to our models from that period, legendary bikes that are milestones in the history of off-road biking, especially in the U.S.

This is one reason for the name MOAB, after the evocative desert in Utah, which every year draws huge numbers of offroad bikers and provides the eerie background for the sets of many cult movies. The red tank, the spacious seat, the yellow side panel number holders, the simple stripped-down frame….these all form the essence of the new incarnation of the Husqvarna spirit. The Husqvarna Concept MOAB has a 650cc engine on a perimeter frame and progressive linkage on the swingarm. The wheels are 17 inches and the tyres are semi-knobbly, and therefore suitable for off-road use.
