    ^^^^^Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it based on the BMW parallel twin ?

    And DM, I guess you have to buy one now.

    It is. Husqvarna has added an extra 100cc, both inlet and exhaust vales have 1mm larger valves and almost everything else in the new motor is different to the original F 800 R thanks to the decision to run a 315-degree offset crankshaft which vastly improves the power and torque characteristics of the engine.

    It's got a nice aggressive bark. I'm not usually too hot on the sound of parallel twins, but this one's nice.

    Very nice bike you've got there.

    I wan't too impressed with parallel twins either. Until I let a friend ride my 1999 Lav 750S. When I heard that little monster pulling away as a Spectator I was damn impressed. They do rock. In the top end. Quite similar power band to a two stroke.

    Parallel twins can sound pretty good! All depends on the crank pin spacing. The old trx850 sounds amazing, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15QCwq7JfsY It was 270degree spacing if i remember correctly, pretty much sounds like a v twin. The Husky should sound pretty unique too, with the 315 crank, a lot different to the bmw 800 that tends to sound a lot like a boxer twin.

    Bah, we only ride Harley's here. I would be surprised if the Nuda was ever available.
    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.

    Yes made up my mind will be swapping my Dorso over in 2 weeks for a Nuda 900r.

    Csl can you tell the moderators of the Nuda forum to get their spambot filter sorted.I've tried registering heaps of times and keep getting told I'm not legit, Grrr

    Emailed them to and as of yet nothing.

    Looking forward to seeing these in the U.S. ....... would like to see one in person. I like the unique front fender, instead of the usual duck bill that other supermotos have.

    Some call it F1 technology and others Arty Farty, in any case, it does eliminate head shake.
