I don’t need to tell you that the Nuda 900 was responsible for creating a new class of naked motorcycles when it arrived in 2012—I just did.
The test rider might not be instantly recognizable, but you will know as soon as he pulls back on the tank strap and you see that ratty leather jacket that Husky is aiming to produce another icon.
The Husqvarna Nuda – an iconic model made famous in the days of motocross- is set to return soon after a long hiatus.
The Husqvarna Nuda will be making its return in the next few months. The first model was released in 2012, and the second-generation model was seen by some keen onlookers testing now in 2023. It features a naked body, a trellis frame, and a KTM’s LC8c 890cc engine.
It was not long ago when the Husqvarna Nuda 900 was launched at the 2012 EICMA show. The two-cylinder naked bike featured a powerful engine married to an advanced chassis. And while it was undoubtedly successful.
We finally know what one of those new machines can look like. Husqvarna is set to revive the iconic Nuda model soon after many have spotted the prototype machine undergoing testing in Europe.
First featured in 2012, the Nuda has been returning ever since. Manufactured by Husqvarna and based on the KTM 890 DUKE R, the Nuda is noticeably different with its use of a trellis frame and aluminium swing arm. However, the most noticeable difference lies in its “Iconic” lights, which differ from the KTM.
Husqvarna is well known for its heritage in both off-road and motocross. Its Nuda range is iconic. It would be a theory that this bike is just a Husky version of the KTM DUKE without the fairings. However, a close inspection of the bike reveals many differences between these models.
The Nuda was one of the most popular models Husqvarna sold in the early 2000s, seeing the Austrian brand revive the open-class naked model will be great.
