Ive always associated Husqvarna with trials bike rather than sports/racing bikes so it seems an odd strategy. Nice to have an old name back though.

What is the point of the constructors championship?
The KTM and mahindra are the only ones not to have 'foreign' frames and besides, taking the last race as an example, KTM machines took 7 of the top 15 places. KTM are always likely to win when the provide more bikes. It all seems so pointless.

Of those 7 top 15 finishs, how many scored constructors points. Frame manafactures are just as much part of the construction of the bike as the engine manafacture.

@rdc
As far as I know they all got constructor points as they are all KTM machines - not Kalex KTM - and there were 2 of them in the top 15 as well.
Agree that the frame is important but the main point of moto3 is near machine equality so the riders skills become far more important. A constructors championship based on one team having 8 entries and another having 4 is somewhat slanted.
