The first motorcycle Husqvarna was created in 1903. Then Husqvarna Motorcycles part of the Swedish concern Husqvarna, producing weapons. In 1987, the Husqvarna motorcycle division was sold to the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Cagiva. And Husqvarna became part of the MV Agusta Motor S.p.A. Motorcycle production moved to the Italian city of Varese. But part of the team did not agree with this, decided to stay in Sweden and founded its Husaberg brand.

In 2007, as part of expanding its off-road program, the Husqvarna brand decided to buy the German BMW concern. BMW planned to keep the brand and position the Husqvarna motorcycles in relation to the BMW motorcycles, just like in the automotive world the BMW brand is the MINI brand. However, in January 2013, BMW announced the sale of Husqvarna to Pierer Industrie AG, which also owned the Husaberg brand. There was a historic reunion of Husaberg and Husqvarna under the old brand. In 2014, Husqvarna returned as the legendary brand of the 1960s-1970s. Pierer Industrie also owned shares of KTM AG, and as a result, the once-Swedish brand was framed as Husqvarna Motorcycle GmbH, becoming part of the Austrian KTM Group.
