Along with the “don’t call them spy shost” photos that Husqvarna released yesterday, the Swedish brand owned by a German company that’s based in Italy has also released a video that elaborates on the design of the new Husqvarna 900 street bike. As we’ve seen already from the concept sketches, and affirmed in the photos, the new street-going Husky is a super-sized supermotard that features BMW’s F800 series parallel twin motor, albeit slightly revised to 900cc. Find the design philosophy of the new Husqvarna 900 according to Head of Husqvarna Design Raffaele Zaccagnini after the jump.

BMW hasn’t been bashful about lending its name to the project, and does so as well in this video as well…we imagine its to help establish some street-cred for the otherwise dirt-based brand. Yes/no/maybe so that it’s working, nonetheless BMW seems hell-bent on pushing Husqvarna not only into the road sector, but also as establishing the brand as a serious contender to Austrian rival KTM.
