Husqvarna 900 spy shots in today’s MCN

1 of 3

Spy photographs of the new Husqvarna 900 grabbed outside a BMW testing facility in Munich, Germany show the new Husqvarna 900cc parallel-twin undergoing endurance testing on the road.

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. Now a spy photographer has spotted a real bike testing on the road in Germany.
