PH gets … BMW’s latest acquisition.

has had a varied old life. Despite as a firearms manufacturer in 1689, the company turned its hand to in 1903. (Making it the world’s motorcycle manufacturer, something will argue…)

Considerable race success followed but the 1930s onwards the company its efforts on the off-road market. In the Cagiva Group (who owned Ducati at this purchased Husqvarna and the company was to Italy where it has remained since. With its off-road strong the latest chapter in bizarre life of Husqvarna in 2007 when BMW bought the from Cagiva for 93 million What did BMW want with an brand?

Simple, Husky was an established that appealed to young BMW wanted a ‘cool’ brand in the same way as Mini to appeal to a audience. Four years the takeover, and after nearly 50 Euros of investment that has an overhaul of the Italian factory’s facilities, and the first fruits of investment have been

Somewhat unsurprisingly the Nuda its influences from Husky’s heritage. There has been a towards ‘big supermotos’ in the market of late, which are off-road styled bikes sportsbike 17-inch wheels. Ducati Hypermotard, KTM 990SMT and in ways Triumph’s Tiger

The theory is that you get the comfort of an style bike such as GS thanks to the wide bars, the improved handling due to the sporty wheels which allow the use of tyres.

Thanks to the link with BMW the borrows a lot of BMW’s already technology. The engine is based BMW F800 parallel twin Husky have been some freedom and have big it to 898cc and altered the position of the con on the crank and added a funky red cam While the BMW’s rods are set at to give it a Boxer engine the Husky’s are set at 315-degrees for a sportier

Power is a claimed 105bhp torque it 100Nm. The chassis is BMW-derived, based around the steel frame with a few and so are the wheels and fuel injection

Is it just a re-badged BMW then? No, the and character are all Husky and unlike the BMW the Nuda comes in two forms – the touring orientated Nuda and the Nuda R, which has uprated and comes in Husky’s racing red and paint scheme. Husky to launch the Nudas in Sardinia the R version on track and the basic on the roads.

Our group got track which was a little annoying as it had the night before, meaning we got time on a dry circuit.

For our final few the track was virtually dry and with the of grip increased the Nuda R alive. It’s not the fastest out there, but under track use it well. I would have to have fiddled with the adjustable suspension a bit (the bike has limited adjustability) to out some of the pitching on the brakes due to the forks compressing, but time was so I concentrated on putting a few laps

People argue about the way to ride a supermoto on track – favour a leg dangle, others go for I’m a kneedown man and although it feels a bit the Nuda could be hustled at a decent lick. In all honestly I see any Rs being taken on track, it that kind of bike, but on a and twisty circuit it fares

Despite having the same and motor as the R, the basic Nuda non-adjustable forks and a shock adjustable spring preload and only. Handily for a bike at road riders it also get a seat and less ferocious Carving through Sardinia’s roads the Nuda demonstrated the smooth engine characteristic as the R, but the did feel a bit soft.

To be fair to the we were going at quite a but it did feel a little on the bouncy when I encountering bumps mid or turning into a corner. the bike is aimed at a more rider who may wish to take the touring the soft suspension really an issue, however the firm seat and lack of protection may be.
