    The worst kept secret in motorcycling these days was announced early this morning in Europe.*Klaus Allisat, the CEO of the Husqvarna Motorcycle division of BMW lifted the curtain on the 2012 900R Naked. Features of the motorcycle include:

    • A stroked BMW F800GS motor that pushes 105 Horsepower
    • A dry weight of only 175 Kilograms
    • Sachs 48MM front suspension that is fully adjustable
    • Ohlins rear suspension that is also fully adjustable
    • Brembo Monobloc front calipers with 320MM discs
    No word on pricing, or US availability yet, but we were told to expect the 900R to show up in dealers by the end of 2011.

    More pictures and a video of the unveiling after the break.

    That new Husqvarna Nuda 900 R pretty much makes any one of BMWs F800s look like a Hungarian Hugo.

    It's amazing how the Italians can take anything German and make it look like Art while the Germans continue to design things that look like they're off the shelves from Toys-R-Us.

    My prodiction is.... You're going to see three different versions of this bike new Husqvarna.

    1. The Nuda 900R (which was just released.)
    2. 900 SuperEnduro (Adventure Bike)
    3. 900 Sportbike (Nuda withe fairing)

    Actually this is good for BMW becaues now they can focus on 1000cc above boxers and touring machines which where they make their money.... and position Husqvarna at that younger, hipper market space bringing new customers in.... with this line of affordable bikes.

    Nice way to grow market share.

    Interesting times for sure.

    It's growing on me, although I couldn't justify the loss of practicality as compared with my ST. Latest 'action' pics make it look very promising.

    But if it really is a street bike, won't it need indicators, somewhere to hang the number/licence plate and maybe a rear mudguard? And who needs a pillion seat anyway ...

    good point(s) - is it common for new bikes to be 'revealed' without such essentials (at least the plate hang and indicators)

    Hah - an offset crank. Now you're talking. A v-twin rumble and even more torque. Just what I 'need'.

    OK, so they added mirrors and a rear 'guard' - yep, it's looking pretty good for a streetfighter, especially with the pseudo v-twin. (I remain too 'sold' on the practicality and belt drive of my ST though - must be getting old)

    streetfighter

    Just what the hey is a street fighter, what are they fighting? The moto rag mags of late have just about twisted the vernacular to come up with a new cheesy title for what used to be a plain ol motorcycle.
    Yeah, man my /2 is a f-in street fighter.....bare bones, no extra bits of metal, just the primary essentials.
    I got your street fighter hanging!

    This bike looks confused and ugly. But it just might work and who cares about looks if it works.

    Early tests show it comes up with the goods - both bored and stroked, bigger inlet valves and better suspension than the F800 series. Looks like a worthy competitor to the Duc Hypermotard, if that's what you want.

    I'd be happy with a canted version of the engine in my ST.

    BMW make sports/touring bikes, except for one which is just in the range so they can go racing.

    If you was in the market for a street bike (which I'm never going to be), which would you choose?

    R.I.P F800R.

    id roll with both the husky and modded boxer shown on this thread

    will be interesting to see the real life mpg figures for the husky 900, and could be another avenue for us to perhaps upgrade a further 100 cc and more oomph

    id roll with both the husky and the modded bmw boxer also will be interesting to see the real world mpg figures and also a potential upgrade if and when the likes of motorworks and others as then we can perhaps have an extra 100cc added to our bikes for a bit more oomph etc
