Safari Tanks Husqvarna Terra fuel tankSafari Tanks have just completed an extensive test on their brand new Husqvarna 650 Terra long-range fuel tank.

Starting from their north east Victorian base, the Safari Tanks crew rode the Terra out to Innamincka and back, via Hungerford.

The Terras were fitted with the new 32-litre Safari Tank, and were fully loaded with gear during the ride.

“We were very impressed with the bike’s ability to cope with the long haul outback days,” Safari Tanks’ Robin Box said.

“This is something that you are looking for on any adventure bike, and being able to ride on a full range of road conditions, from sand and rocks, through to tarmac.”

The Terra’s fuel range was very impressive.

Riding in the outback the bikes covered 620 kilometres to the reserve tank, with a total of 672 kilometres until empty.

The new Husqvarna 650 Terra Safari Tank will be available in mid-October, and orders are now being taken at www.safaritanks.com.au, or by contacting the team on (03) 5729 5556.
