The king of off roading, Husqvarna Motorcycles to roll out in India soon to make the country a better two wheeler international market. The Swedish born motorcycle brand is currently a subsidiary of German BMW Motorrad. Historically, the company was established in 1903 in Husqvarna, Sweden, with the purpose of manufacturing bicycles. But later company turned into the production of motorcycles. Earlier the company concentrated only in producing high quality off roaders. By the acquisition of Italian premium motorcycle barnd, MV Agusta group in 1987, the company's headquarters was shifted to the present headquarters in Varese, Italy. Then the company involved in making bikes in more categories.
Not soon but after a couple of decades, in 2007, BMW Motorrad completely adopted Husqvarna to its home. Not even shifting the headquarters to Germany, BMW operates Husqvarna as a separate entity. So the production will be done only in Varese plant for the international customers. The company had informed that they would be importing Husqvarna motorcycles via Completely Built Units(CBU) route. But this may severely cause their sales since the customers need to pay 75% duty tax, will tag it overpriced.
At first, the company will be opening up showrooms in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. And the street motorcycle Husqvarna Nuda 900R will be the first motorcycle arriving in India, which looks a typical off roader ready to bounce even through tough roads at any time. The bike comes in a 898cc engine powered by 105 PS and 100 Nm of torque. The machine can get a maximum speed of 200km/h. Comparing the ratio proportionality, a rigid weight of 174 kg will provide maximum stability and flexibility to the bike. And the six speed transmission is capable enough to secure the best mileage in its class.
It seems like the engine was originated from the BMW F800R parallel twin motor, but with more power and displacement. Witnessing more international motorcycles in the Indian market, let's hope that this is a new cherishing era for all motor maniacs and the country.
