2012 Husqvarna Nuda 900R

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.

Agreed. The sleeker and lighter version of this bike. I bet it would have an impressive speed performance. Competing against the Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki would be tough.

It seems that the Husqvarna had stripped down this motorbike. I can almost see the engine of the vehicle. The styling is not that great but I bet with its weight I can tell that it would be a speedy vehicle.
