Official Sketches of 900cc Husqvarna Streetbike
Official unveiling expected at EICMA
Husqvarna has released these official drawings of its upcoming streetbike.

Husqvarna is expected to unveil the new streetbike later this fall at the EICMA show in Milan. Check back here for more details as they emerge.
