New Husqvarna Touring Nuda

Quote:
HUSQVARNA seem to be looking to bolster their burgeoning on-road segment with a version of the Nuda 900 in touring garb.

First hitting the web over at 100hp.com, a members-only Ducati forum, the picture clearly reveals that the Nuda has been on the growth hormones.

Obvious changes appear to be a larger top fairing, wider saddle and taller windscreen. There is also the hint of some lower bodywork and crashbar, suggesting a tipped hat to the adventure/touring market. No details or specifications yet, but based on their current sales trends a Nuda-in-a-touring-frock might be a common sense move.

Husqvarna sales were up a strong 15.7% in 2012, however a closer look at the figures reveals that without sales of their on-road models, Husqvarna’s 2012 numbers would actually have exposed a 19% sales loss. A new touring Nuda might be just the ticket to offset further implosion of their traditional off-road market.

Hopefully the production model uses foot pegs. I always preferred them.

Well played.

But on the bike...

Looks interesting. The gas tank looks really long, like a Ducati Diavel kind of thing going on...not a bad thing at all to me. But that has got to be the largest & longest license plate holder on earth...the bike is screaming for a tail tidy.

I'm definitely watching Husky...I could see one in my garage in a few years.

Yeah I read that as well. Wonder where they might fit into the KTM lineup. (For BMW i can see Husqvarna as the "hardcore off road" brand, but KTM itself sort of stands for that...)

Never seen such an awkward riding position!
Looks like he's stooping to get that screen to work.
