Freeride Motos Turns A Husqvarna 630 Into A Sleek, Razor-Sharp Kart Track Racer

Jun 3, 2021

Husqvarna undoubtedly produces some of the most competent and high-performance production supermoto motorcycles, with the Swedish marque’s current 701 model standing head and shoulders above the competition. A decade ago, this was no less true, and even by today’s standards, those Husky SuMo bikes remain incredibly competitive from a performance standpoint, though the aesthetics of some of these models have aged less than gracefully over the years. Recognizing the performance potential underneath its dated-looking bodywork, Pierre Dhers of France’s Freeride Motos Racing has taken a 2011 Husqvarna SM 630 and transformed it into a modernized hooligan machine fit for both kart track sessions and daily riding.

Christened the “Alpine,” the 630 now wears a set of custom-formed MX-style fiberglass bodywork adorned in a Renault Alpine Blue livery with white accents and number boards. On top of a Uni Filter pod filter and a full custom stainless steel exhaust ending in an SC-Project can, the build’s 600cc thumper now boasts a Suter Racing clutch. The project maintains the appearance of a supermoto race bike by neatly integrating its lighting into the build, using a set of handlebar-mounted auxiliary LEDs that act as headlights, wraparound fork leg LED indicators, and a taillight with built-in turn-signals sitting flush in the Alpine’s one-off tail.
