Concept: BMW F900S by Luca Bar Design

02/24/2012 @ 10:48 am, by Jensen Beeler7 COMMENTS

To build the Husqvarna Nuda 900, the Swedish brand started with the 798cc motor from the BMW F800 series, and then bored and stroked the parallel-twin motor to a 898cc displacement. Through its marketing of the Nuda 900 & Nuda 900R, BMW has been sure to include itself, making sure that the connection of BMW’s trusted road-going heritage is tied to the previously dirt-only brand of Husqvarna. It’s been an interesting process for both brands to say the least, the product of which we haven’t even begun to fully realize.

Taking a reversal on the process between BMW and Husqvarna, our friend Luca Bar (check out his site here) is back with another concept bike. Designing what he calls a BMW F900S, Luca has taken the F800S aesthetic and imagined it with the newly-revised 900cc motor from the Husqvarna Nuda. Not stopping just at the revised motor though, his F900S also gets some trellis-frame love, which the Nuda used in lieu of the F800’s twin-spar frame design. Adding in some updated bodywork, the total package looks very clean. More photos after the jump.

  1. Holy crap! Its a F800R with a S1000RR Front…. nice concept, for a ugly bike.

    I’m a huge fan of of the F800s and F800ST, but but in the U.S. these bikes really aren’t commonly appreciated. I think this concept F900S is MUCH cooler than BMW’s current naked offering.

  3. Gritboy says:

    Oh, and I miss the bumble bee color scheme. Hopefully, BMW offers it again.

  4. Hmmmm. I think I’m liking that.

  5. Uber Dan says:

    Looks a lot like a R1100S…I’m liking it very much!!! Put a boxer in it and count me in!

  6. MikeD says:

    MEH, as bland and UN-atractive as ever.
    Would rather have an updated R1200S or R1200ST with more pro-human ergos.
    This parallel twin powered series never tickled my pickle…(o_o).

  7. Westward says:

    I think the design style is consistent with BMW. However, reduce the front to a simple headlight, maybe even a bikini fairing or not, and you have a rival to the Monsters, Street Triples, and the Shiver….

    I see the potential for a mean yet sophisticated street fighter from the Germans…
