Video: New Husqvarna 900 spied on the road

Published: 23 June 2011

This spy video reveals the new Husqvarna 900 undergoing testing on the road near a BMW testing facility in Munich, Germany and shows the parallel-twin undergoing endurance testing on the road.

We’re not sure if this is a real spy video or one that has been sent out by Husqvarna as part of a teaser campaign. The bike is being revealed in finished form in the next two weeks.

Italian firm Husqvarna is wholly owned by BMW and the pure road bike is a first for the off-road biased firm which is using a bored-out version of the F800 engine developed by BMW. Insiders have told MCN the bigger bore engine will produce around 100bhp and the weight is being kept as low as possible.

This is the first time the bike has been seen in reality; up until now Husqvarna has been drip feeding information about the bike. Firstly showing shots of the engine, then some sketches and artist impressions.
