It looks like things are becoming clearer in the matter of KTM, Husqvarna and Husaberg: as the German webjournal Speedweek reports, Husaberg dies, Husqvarna starts anew through it. There will only be Husqvarna Sportmotorcycles GmbH from now on.
Starting off from the very same root, Husaberg and Husqvarna have been brought together once more this year: KTM's CEO Stefan Pierer bought Husky from BMW Motorrad earlier this year using his Pierer Industries AG operation, so after KTM gained control over Husabers back in 1995, the two were back under the same umbrella.

Husqvarna Sportmotorcycles GmbH will be based in (you guessed right) Mattighofen, Austria, the birth place of KTM and will become fully operational by October 2013, with the production of new machines which will most likely be introduced at the EICMA in Milan, Italy.

Husqvarna's awesome and long off-road racing history will now blend with the top-drawer technology developed by Husaberg and a new generation of bikes will be produced. The new Husky machines will cover the Enduro, Motocross and Sportminicycles, a press release says, with do details on the street models, whatsoever.

Husky plans to introduce the new machines in early October in Sweden, roughly one month prior to the EICMA. As for the existing Huskies... “Parts supply and Customer Service for all Husqvarna models up to and including Model Year 2013 are guaranteed for the years to come and will remain at the current business location in Biandronno (VA), Italy."
