Husqvarna has released new sketches of its first street machine. The naked streetfighter/supermoto will use the recently announced 900cc parallel twin developed by Husqvarna in conjunction with its parent company BMW. The bike has minimalist lines, small tank and red, black and white colors. The current BMW F800 engine develops 85hp, while the new 900cc version will reportedly deliver around 95 bhp and 70 ft-lb torque with a claimed power delivery that’s both linear and smooth at low rpm, but robust at high rpm.

„With this new model, Husqvarna is consolidating its philosophy of style: a balanced combination of visual emotion and riding experience. The strong shapes of the body are a consistent evolution of the new style and design direction introduced by the Varese based company, and are testimony of the manufacturer’s ability to innovate. The architecture of the vehicle is brand new, above and beyond any layout available on the market. The characteristic shape of the side panels, the tension in the vibrant surfaces, the sculpted volumes define an athletic body. Dynamism, agility and lightness are balanced harmoniously. The functional air intakes integrated into the front of the body and the thin tail highlight the unique design of this new model. The technical components which are completely in view are the premise of sportiness, performance and, above all, fun.” says Husqvarna’s press release.
