Thanks to a set of sketches just released by Husqvarna, we’ve got a good idea of what their new 900cc street bike will look like.
Husqvarna has been teasing us all year by releasing information on their new 900cc project a piece at a time. The company is known for off-road bikes and street-legal dual-sport/supermoto machines; street-dedicated machines haven’t been on their radar.
Looking at the sketches, it appears Husqvarna isn’t moving in too radical of a direction. Their bike has the streetfighter/supermoto lines that offroad manufacturers favour when they build a bike for the asphalt – the KTM Duke is a great example of this.
Of course, these are just preliminary sketches, and the finished product could look a lot different. It’s interesting to see Husqvarna’s progress though – KTM has certainly made good on their jump from dirt to the street. Can Husky do the same?
Are those riders extremely short, or is that a huge bike?? Kinda looks like when my twin 9yo daughters are sitting on my bike…
I know, it’s not to scale…but they could put a little more effort into the sketch if they are releasing it to the press…or maybe they are designing a bike for the 6’5 plus size riders…??
