Husqvarna is attempting to build excitement for their future 900cc road bike through a series of staged press releases. Something parent company BMW does so well. First came the unveiling of a 900cc parallel twin engine derived from BMW’s F800 and now the release of a couple of design sketches. Here’s what Husqvarna has to say about the design:
“With this new model, Husqvarna is consolidating its philosophy of style: a balanced combination of visual emotion and riding experience. The strong shapes of the body are a consistent evolution of the new style and design direction introduced by the Varese-based company, and are testimony of the manufacturer’s ability to innovate.
“The architecture of the vehicle is brand new, above and beyond any layout available on the market. The characteristic shape of the side panels, the tension in the vibrant surfaces, the sculpted volumes define an athletic body. Dynamism, agility and lightness are balanced harmoniously. The functional air intakes integrated into the front of the body and the thin tail highlight the unique design of this new model.
“The technical components — which are completely in view — are the premise of sportiness, performance and, above all, fun. Balance, consistency, exclusivity, innovation, dynamics, lightness and functionality. These are the distinguishing features of the design of this new bike.”
