Husqvarna Expresses its Naked Ambition with the Nuda 900R [w/ Video]

In the world of motorcycle manufacturers, most people are familiar with the Japanese brands, the Italian brands, Germany’s BMW, Austria’s KTM, and the occasional British and American firms. But few casual motorcycle buffs (at least the ones in this part of the world) remember the Swedish-named, Italian-built Husqvarna.

The motorcycle-building arm of the company that got its start as a rifle supplier for the Swedish military waaaaay back in 1689 has been owned by BMW since 2007 (when they purchased it from MV Agusta), and it has had a huge presence in the off-road and dual-purpose bike markets for decades. Now, though, the company is getting back onto the street bike scene for the first time in a very long time. And thanks to heaping doses of design and engineering assistance from the parent company, that first modern street bike – the Nuda 900R – has all the makings of a winner.
