SWM Announces 600cc SuperDual Adventure Bike Coming to USA

 A new off-road capable, middleweight adventure bike will be here soon!

Published on 09.06.2018

SWM has announced their much anticipated SuperDual X and T models are coming to the USA sometime late this fall or by early next year. The Italian middleweight Adventure Motorcycle is currently going through the homologation process and awaiting approval for sale in the US.

It is exciting news for those looking for a compact, versatile and off-road capable adventure bike. The SuperDual X comes equipped with a 21″/18″ wheel combo for more aggressive Dual Sport riding, while the T model will ride on touring friendly 19″/17″ wheels. Both bikes are powered by a fuel-injected 600cc liquid-cooled DOHC single cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed transmission.

Suspension travel is a generous 8.3 inches in front and 8.7 inches in the rear with a claimed dry weight of 372.6 pounds, and with a 5-gallon fuel tank, the bike should have a considerable touring range. With a scooped seat, touring windscreen, protective equipment and luggage racks, it looks to have all the makings of a nimble adventure tourer that can take you to the far corners of the earth.

Better yet, the bike’s lighter-weight design and Italian styling give it a unique flavor in the adventure bike market. Pricing will also be attractive at $8,995 for both the SuperDual X and SuperDual T models. So far, reviews from the Australian motorcycle press, where the bike has already been released, have been positive overall. We look forward to getting our hands on a test unit when they become available in the states.

    • Motoman in Oak Hills, CA is the US distributor. There is no listing of any dealers in the US on the SWM website. Am anxious to ride this MC but it may be a very long time.

    • I believe they manufacture it themselves using the design, castings and equipment from Husqvarna. These were the Husky engines BEFORE KTM purchased the company. They are proven engines. I really hope this bike does well. The company has been around for quite awhile.

  1. Looks like a modern alternative to the KLR650, much like the Husqvarna te650 was. I have read on advrider.com of some complaints about getting parts and support from SWM post sale. Hopefully they can improve on that. If nothing else, maybe this will get Kawasaki to consider really improving the KLR.
