We have it from a reliable source that Husqvarna is about to embark on a series of large capacity road-only bikes. Which, if you don’t know anything about Husqvarna, is pretty big as they’re only really known for chainsaws and dirt bikes/supermotards.
This direction was confirmed at the current EICMA show when Husqvarna released a concept of what these new bikes may look like with the Mille 3.
Using a V3 cylindered motor of 993 cc (made up of three of the company’s 331 cc singles mated to a common crank) the Mille 3 looks like a perfectly good Husqvarna supermotard bike that has been squashed by a lardy arsed fattie.
Thankfully it’s not meant for actual production but just to show what the BMW owned Swedish firm can do given some time, a supermotard, an obese man and a kilo of LSD.
