2012 Husqvarna WallpaperHusqvarna continued to surprise in 2011, the BMW-owned motorcycle company unveiling some new machinery for 2012.
The first was Husky’s first-ever streetbike, the Nuda 900. But before this concept was fully exposed throughout the motorcycle industry, Husqvarna released another new machine – the Concept MOAB.The 2012 Concept MOAB, which was unveiled at EICMA 2011 in Milan, is Husqvarna’s “re-interpretation” of the famed scrambler.The MOAB features a 650cc engine in a perimeter frame, and progressive linkage on the swingarm.Speaking of the design, Husky says “The overall design effect divides the bike into distinct sections: the tank, seat, the side panel number holders and the exhaust. The lines are fluid but combine to create a decisive form.“The color scheme, down to every last detail, both in bodywork and mechanics, is taken from Steve McQueen’s immortal H400. The unique form and colors give the MOAB an exhilaration vintage look.”Attached above is wallpaper of the 2012 Husqvarna Concept MOAB; for a preview, click here.Click motorcycle thumbnail to expand.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
