The first Husqvarna motorcycle was created in 1903. Then, Husqvarna Motorcycles, part of the Swedish company Husqvarna, produces weapons. In 1987 Husqvarna motorcycle division was sold to the Italian Cagiva motorostoitel. And Husqvarna became part of the group MV Agusta Motor S. p.A. Motorcycle production moved to the Italian city of Varese. But part of the team disagreed, decided to stay in Sweden and founded Husaberg brand.
In 2007 as part of the expansion of its off-road program – a brand of Husqvarna decided to buy the German company BMW. BMW had planned to keep the brand and to position the Husqvarna motorcycles in relation to the BMW motorcycles like in the automotive world belongs to the brand BMW brand MINI. However, in January 2013, BMW announced the sale of the Husqvarna company Pierer Industrie AG, owned also the brand Husaberg. There was a historic reunification of Husaberg and Husqvarna under the old brand. In 2014, Husqvarna is back in the form of the legendary brand of the 1960s-1970s years. Pierer Industrie also owned shares of KTM AG, and as a result the once Swedish brand was available in the form of Husqvarna Motorcycle GmbH, becoming part of the Austrian KTM Group.
