Concept: BMW F900S by Luca Bar Design BMW F900S Luca Bar Design 02 635x476

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.

  2. Gritboy says:

    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…
