Details on the impending Husqvarna street bike have been scarce, though we have seen the Swedish brand’s Mille 3 Concept, but the folks at Visordown managed to get a Husqvarna represented to spill some of the beans on the machine. Knowing that the 900cc parallel-twin motor comes from the BMW F800 series, it’s expected that the extra displacement will come from the motor being bored out.
Now adding to our knowledge, Husqvarna UK has outlined that the new 900cc street bike will be a naked machine that comes in either a standard and “factory” specification. The new 900cc parallel twin motor will also be the basis for further street machines from Husqvarna, which will be released farther down the line.
“We are very excited about the future for Husqvarna. Thanks to the massive resources BMW is able to put in place, Husqvarna will benefit from their R&D capabilities and expertise to launch a new breed of road motorcycles that will hit UK showrooms over the next few years,” said Massimo Granata, General Manager at Husqvarna UK Ltd.
“The first bike to be launched using the new 900cc power plant will be a naked street bike in both ‘factory’ and standard versions. The bike will retain the distinctive Husqvarna aggressive lines, performance and balance. The same power plant will then be the base for other exciting new Husqvarna models that will be launched in the years to come.”
