The Husqvarna Nuda 900R is a sporty naked ready to reward you with a rush of adrenaline every time you jump on the saddle. The Nuda 900R combines Husqvarna’s traditional sporting nature with BMW’s engineering, so the result is nothing short of excellent.
The center piece of the Husqvarna Nuda 900R is a parallel 800cc two cylinder engine borrowed from the BMW F800R. However, unlike the Husqvarna F800R unit, the Nuda 900R’s engine has received a few tweaks which resulted in a bigger capacity rated at 900cc. Apart from the increased capacity, the engine has also received a series of modifications to improve the performance of the power and torque curve. Thanks to its numerous engine upgrades the Husqvarna Nuda 900R develops a maximum output of 77 kW (105 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 100 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm.

Husqvarna finally broke the covers off of the highly-anticipated Nuda 900R streetbike, giving us the first glimpse of the machine that will go toe-to-toe with the likes of the Yamaha FZ8, the Suzuki GSR 750, and the Kawasaki Z750R.
Aesthetically speaking, the 900R has been designed with a red-black-white scheme that also features an angular design that is then complemented by a streamlined tail. Despite the impressive look of the bike, it seems that the product is still far from finished with further improvements set to be done before the final product rolls out of the plant.
As for the powertrain, the Nuda 900R will be powered by a modified version of the BMW 900cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, which is light enough to not compromise the bike’s 175 kg weight. Husqvarna left out the official output figures for the 900R, but word has it that it will be well north of 100 horsepower, giving it enough juice to take on some of the industry’s sportsbike heavyweights.
Pricing for the bike is also still unknown, but expect it to be revealed in the coming months, with the most likely setting being the EICMA Show this November in Milan.
