Touring with an edge

HUSQVARNA’S Nuda 900 pop instantly to mind if you were of a touring model. And fair it’s a ballsy, no nonsense, styled machine which as though it’s ready for action just sitting on the

But it’s amazing what a few accessories can turn a machine If we are being fair dinkum you could go touring on a postie if you strap enough luggage it. It might not be all that fun but it can be done.

On value this looks what Husqvarna has done the Nuda 900 Touring. It’s not a model as such, but a Nuda with a set of hard panniers, screen and a small tank items all available through Husqvarna dealer. But to think would be a massive injustice to the of the bike.

The difference

When we tested the 900 and 900R in the May 2012 issue of Torque we were more in with the 900 rather than the

While both bikes the same mechanical package the gets upspec suspension and It has more grunt down low due to final gearing, and the seat is taller.

On the whole it feels manic to ride compared to the 900 and we would rather own the 900 because it was plain nicer to ride on the

It is cheaper too, $13,995, two less than the ‘R’.

To the suspension on both bikes are Sachs forks, fully on the ‘R’, and with heavier

At the rear the 900R gets a adjustable – including ride – Ohlins shock, while the 900 a Sachs unit with adjustment only.

Brembo are fitted to both models, but the gets monoblock calipers. just say neither bike is

The BMW based engine was changed before it was placed in the Nuda which is straight from the BMW and shortened by 50mm.

For a start, it now has and not belt drive, it received an in capacity to 898cc and an increase in from around 80ps to and 100Nm of torque.Compression is up to 13:1, and its is 8000rpm.

Two power modes are available – Power and Rain Mode.


As you can see from the pics, the is quite minimalist and you sit perched on top than in.

Overall though, a reasonably comfortable bike to with the only gripe the flat and hard seat. we say gripe, it’s meant in the of a touring motorcycle.

The other for long distance work be the lack of fuel range. It have a range of around 250 which by looking at the fuel you would immediately disbelieve.

That is until you realise the 13 fuel tank sits the seat, as per its BMW forefather.

The bike happily just cruise with its V-twin sounding twin cylinder engine along. If you want to have a bit of a the Nuda can provide plenty of in that regard, and the touring do not hinder the enjoyment in any way.


Husqvarna has put a fair bit of into accessories for both 900 models, and in fact you can buy five ‘kits’.

Our test bike was with most of what’s in the Kit, which normally of a windshield, tank bag, panniers, seat bag, grips and an anti-theft kit

You can also get a comfort seat and throw-over saddlebags, so there’s of scope to kit out a Nuda for longer runs.

The full price for the Kit is $2031, and is by far the most cost way to buy the parts.

Buy them separately and it cost you more.


While the Nuda 900 might not be an touring bike it still a pretty good job of being one fitted with a factory Kit. It will lope while you take in the scenery on a weekend away, and when all of a you hit some primo curves you can wind the wick up and have fun.

It might be more of a sports than a tourer but it never out of its depth when on tour.
