Husqvarna Nuda 900R Streetbike Breaks Cover
However, the new model still manages to keep the supermoto flavor while drawing its power from the modified BMW 900cc parallel twin-cylinder engine developed particularly for it.
Despite the fact the official power output figures are undisclosed, rumors have it it’s in the 100hp range, which means it could go head-to-head with naked sportbikes such as Yamaha FZ8, Suzuki GSR 750, Kawasaki Z750R, or Triumph’s Street Triple R.
Styling wise, we see the Husqvarna-like paint scheme comprising the red-black-white colors, streamlined tail and a small tank, as well as a angular design, which were also visible in the design sketches revealed a month ago. However, the photos released by the company so far indicate there are still some more tweaks left to be made, as the bike lacks elements such as signal lights, mirrors or number plate holder.
And since the Nuda 900R also takes the frame and swingarm from BMW, it could be seen as an extremely tuned version of the F800GS. Dry weight is claimed to be below 175 kg (385 lbs), so we could look at a whole lot of fun on two wheels. But for the moment, market availability and pricing are surrounded by a mystery aura, which we expect to be lifted at the forthcoming EICMA Show in Milan this November.
