Husqvarna releases technical details of Nuda 900

Published: 02 September 2011

Italian firm Husqvarna has released technical details of the Nuda 900R and lower specification Nuda 900 and has for the first time revealed power figures.

The engine is based on the BMW F800 parallel twin but has been boosted in capacity from 798cc to 898 thanks to a 2mm larger bore of 84mm and a longer stroke of 81mm; up 5.4mm over the BMW motor. The compression ration has been raised with modified pistons, camshafts and conrods along with a redesigned crankshaft.

The firing order of the F800 motor has been changed thanks to an alteration of the crankshaft offset angle to 315 degrees from zero. According to Husqvarna it gives a more aggressive feel and sound along with giving a significant increase in power to 105bhp and 73.8lb ft of torque.

Despite the power increase and small 13-litre fuel tank, Husqvarna is claiming the bike will do 160 miles to a tank.

Husqvarna has also shown off some of the accessories that will be available too with modified BMW Vario panniers and a higher windscreen along with different seats and soft luggage available. The Nuda will be going on sale later in 2012.
