We have owned literally hundreds of motorcycles over the past 35 years, including
but not limited to, XL's, XR's, XT's KTM LC4's, HUSKY's Husabergs BMW
GS's, KTM 520, 450, and 950's, MZ's, Triumph Tigers, Ducatis and
Ownership, coupled with nearly 200,000 miles of dirt and dirt road riding through the California mountains, Nevada Deserts, Baja,
Colorado, and the Midwest have given us a good idea of what each of these bikes has to offer and a good idea of what works on a True
The Terra Mostro is a True "50/50" dual sport bike that is nimble
enough to be ridden on tight trials, stable enough to hold the
throttle open on a Dry Lake bed or sand wash, and smooth enough (ie
twin) to enjoy the ride home from Las Vegas to LA on the 15 at the
speed limit plus.
It is easy to work on and inexpensive to repair. It is 150 lbs
lighter than the GS, more nimble than a Uly, and way more friendly
on the street than the KTM twins.
The Terra Mostro can keep an XR in it's sights when the terrain gets
rough, and later that night, after a quick wash, you can ride to the
local hotspot and be the center of attention.
