The biggest news to arrive from the world of Husqvarna motorcycles is the unveiling of the 2012 Nuda 900 and Nuda 900 R.
The Nuda machine is the first street machine that will be released in Husqvarna history. Husky, which is owned by BMW, says the Nuda 900 and 900 R are “crossover” motorcycles, ones that are between a naked bike and a supermoto.
Besides the fresh look and agile suspension featuring Sachs and Ohlins components, the Nuda 900 and 900 R feature a motor based on the technologically-savvy BMW F 800 R motor.
Husqvarna says: “Designed to reflect Husqvarna’s sporting pedigree, this new configuration not only delivers a more aggressive racing feel and sound at maximum performance, it also vastly improves the power and torque characteristics of the engine, not to forget the higher capacity of 900cc Husqvarna has increased the power (100 hp) and torque (73 ft.lbs), while managing to retain the linear, fluid nature of the power delivery at small throttle openings and low revs.”
And of course, the Nuda’s motor features what Husky is known for – red rocker-box covers.
