My riding buddy has had the 09 husky 310 which was very heavy, very slow and had a real bad flat spot/hesitation from off the bottom . He now has the 2011 husky 310 which has far better power than the o9, very good suspension
, feels lighter than the o9 but not as agile as a 250.....but thats where the good points stop , he has had no end of problems .new batt,new starter motor and stator clutch. problems with the rad fittings, cap and pipes, had to have a new head gasket fitted after 4 weeks as the head had not been torqued down correctly,also lots of other small probs like the switches etc. The bike comes with a 2 year warranty(GOOD JOB !!!) and I must add that all the problems have been resolved by a highly recommended husky dealer SOUTH LAKES OFF ROAD.
