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.
