Husqvarna Mille 3 Concept
Husqvarna unveiled the mad
Mille 3 concept bike a V3 triple cruiser/sportsbike cross built to show off
Husqvarna's designing talent.
The peculiar machine isn't designed for production - the 933cc engine in the
Mille 3 uses three cylinders from the firm's single-cylinder off-road range
arranged on a common crankcase. The bodywork takes clear cues from Husqvarna's
off-roaders, the wheels and brakes could have come from a supermoto, but with
cruiser-sized fat tyres.
Husqvarna say of the Mille 3:
"Emotion is irrational, curiosity is a gift, and anti-conformism is innate. With
the concept study "Mille3", Husqvarna has given form to its vision of biking,
diverse and – it goes without saying - innovative. It is a combination of
emotion, curiosity and anti-conformism, moulded in an original form.
"A bike that is complete, but stripped down; elegant, but slightly threatening.
An explosive mixture that appeals to all the senses and sets a new benchmark for
future Husqvarna bikes.'
