Spy Shot: Husqvarna Nuda Touring Bike

01/10/2013 @ 10:51 am, by Jensen Beeler7 COMMENTS


Not long after we talked about how Husqvarna’s on-road segment was saving the boutique motorcycle manufacturer from its dwindling off-road segment, do we get a spy photo of what appears to be a Husqvarna Nuda 900 in a touring setup.

Featuring more of a top fairing, proper windscreen, and a broader saddle for the rider and passanger, the changes should make this Nuda variant a bit more comfortable on long hauls when compared to its predecessor, if not more attractive as well.

Presumed to be something in the works for 2014, it is not clear if the bike caught here will be a new model, or an extension of the Nuda line. However, it is clear that Husqvarna plans to continue its push into established on-road motorcycle segments, using an appropriate amount of its own flare along the way.

As such, we can expect to see the Husqvarna Baja, and possible the Husqvarna Moab in 2014, perhaps alongside this Husqvarna Nuda Touring model. More info as we get it.

    silly swedes. is it really that big a cost savings not to include foot pegs?

  • jackie

    @Patron that must be the new traction control.

    side note: I wish they would have brought the original here to the states.

    Very few of these are ever SPY shots…. all factories do this to build hype.

    And here i was telling myself a couple of days ago how it all had gone silent after all the big shows were over, LOL.

    A new bike is always good news, but will we ever see the regular Nuda to begin with OR even this one in the U.S.A ?

    Is it me or does the seat height looks kinda low (for a Husky) ? Maybe the guy is 2 meters tall ?

    @MikeD: Nudas are surprisingly low in the flesh. Photos always make ’em look ten feet tall, but they’re almost ~delicate~ when you throw a leg over one. Which reminds me – I hope they’re doing something about the piece of cast iron that masquerades as a seat. It ain’t made for endurance!

    Swedes?….a husky hasn’t seen a Swede in years!
