    Nuda 900R

    I sold my Dorsoduro 750 3 weeks ago and got me one of these. Just wow, what a bike. Lightweight, agile, brilliant engine and the handling is sublime.

    Very nice mate.
    Bet its everything you wanted your DD to be.
    I had a DD Factory and sold to get a KTM SDR.The DD just too heavy and underpowered for my liking.

    Although I don't know what to think about the styling, Nuda is a brilliant name for the model.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    I does look very nice indeed, Husky looks and power without the old uncertainty about reliability and build quality from when Cagiva owned them. In the pic the exhaust can looks like it sticks outto the side a fair bit, how does it actually look please??

    I love this bike. I can't wait until it comes to the US. I think this is going to replace my 800ss. Any thoughts?

    The silencer actually goes very well with bike, but I'm looking to change it as the baffles are not removable. It does sound good at high revs as it has valves that open at higher RPM. Options at the moment as rather limited. Only Leo Vince do one for now.

    Its been freezing here and the roads covered with salt, so yet to go for a ride where I can really throw this thing about, but first impressions are great. Very light and agile, feels much lighter than the 175KG's (dry) Husqvarna quote, the engine is very torquey along with the short gearing makes it such a wheelie machine, fuelling is spot on. The mono bloc Brembos where criticised by some journos as being to aggressive for the street, all I can say is Bull, they provide a lot of feel and are very progressive. Suspension is sublime, gives you so much feel and confidence.

    The only thing I can criticise on this bike is the left hand switch gear. My thumb cannot reach the indicator switch without taking my hand off the bar and the positioning of controls is rubbish. Also, you cannot press the buttons on the dash display with a gloved hand.

    IMO, this is the closest you can get to a a big engined supermoto. I'm not good at writing reviews, but hopefully will do a better one once the weather allows.

    Yeah for such a lithe bike it certainly isn't under braked.
    Bet it can stop like throwing out a anchor.
