Husqvarna Nuda 900R - Click above for high-res image gallery

Husqvarna has taken all there is to love about the beating heart in the BMW F800GS, stripped it naked, cranked up the heat and stuck it in a new super moto. Meet the 2012 Nuda 900R. The 900cc parallel twin now turns out a heady 100 horsepower, and at 385 pounds dry, the bike is guaranteed to the kind of machine momma warned you about. Solid details beyond those scant specs are still scarce at the moment. It's unclear exactly which markets will get the joy of calling the Nuda 900R their very own or how much the bike will cost when lands.

Chances are this creation will have an easy time locking horns with the likes of the Ducati Multistrada Hypermotard in the canyons and on quick commutes. Like the Italian, this Husky rocks few fairings and plenty of suspension travel – just our cup of tea.

        Yeah, you're here to troll... Husqvarna has been producing motorcycles long before they were producing landscaping equipment. Currently they are a subsidiary of BMW's motorcycle division.

      That is one ugly bike!

      Love the design, but the p-twin is a deal breaker. A transplant from an SV650 would do nicely.

        Eh... the SV650's mill would be way too wheezy. Also, the parallel setup allows for tighter packaging.

      Nuda: please put your dress back on.

      Definitely a competitor for the Hyper, not the Multi, but I suppose the author should get a pass. This is a site for car enthusiasts, after all. The Multi would almost certainly lay the wood to this bike, but this Nuda will be a nice alternative to the Hyper. Prefer the Ducati's looks, but this thing ain't half bad.

        This is an AUTOmotive enthusiast website, hence the name.

      I love my Buell. All of this marketing and it's only 15lbs lighter on same HP. I'd get excited if it were lighter.

        I agree with your point. The best thing about Supermotos are light weight. I think the Aprilia 550 hits the sweet spot with about 60HP and around 325 lbs. I miss my DRZ 400SM. That being said, this Husky is not an unattractive offering.

      I would also like to add that I think this motorcycle is way too BAMF for American tastes. Seriously. Americans only care for are A) sport bikes or B) cruiser. Very rarely do they care for high performance roadsters like this Husqvarna. How many Z1000s, Tuonos, Streetfighters, Dukes/Super Dukes, and Speed/Street Triples do folks see out there on the road anyways versus the other types of bikes mentioned? How many people even know what the bikes I mentioned are? Not trying to be a dick, it just is what it is. Additionally, as a Multistrada 1200 S owner, the Nuda 900 is not even in the same league as the Multi'. Not to disparage the Husky because it looks like it is as much fun as releasing two dozen drunk monkeys into a sorority house, but you can't compare the two (though it looks close).

        I think a lot of that has to do with lack of dealers and high prices. I mean, I see old, naked SV650s all the time and the Monster is Ducati's bread and butter. In comparison, my buddy sold his Triumph because we don't have a convenient dealer anymore and I couldn't tell you where to buy a KTM or Aprilia.
