Test rode - bought. On special $3500 off the Nuda-R - std Nuda with ABS not on special. Can't wait.
Agree about the indicator, but I'll adapt.

Questions & Answers



hi im 1.64 m and i love this bike so much!I never had the chance to see it in person,but can a person of my height ride this bike?

No answers



Does the Nuda 900 have a heavy clutch pull? Can it be lightened with lubing? Does your bike have footpeg rubbers? What is pillion accommodation like? Does the riding position feel roomy or are you perched over the front wheel like a Hypermotard? Have your bikes been reliable? Is it easy to do an oil change? Does the std Nuda need the R smaller front sprocket? What difference does the 2 stage engine map do to performance? Cheers

I have a 2013 ABS Nuda900R - one of the last delivered into AUS in Dec 2013
Clutch is light no problem there
Foot peg rubbers are standard - there was a factory alloy set as an option
My wife is fairly small but loves it on the Nuda and says it is better and more comfy than the other bikes I have owned ie: Ducati, Buell, Suzuki SV etc
Riding position is excellent and very comfortable - plenty of seat to move around on and tuck into the tank in the twistys
My bike has done 8,000k now and not missed a beat - only have replaced tyres as it eats them for breakfast
Oil change is super simple as with most bikes now days
My R has the smaller front sprocket as standard - better acceleration but higher revving on the open road
By stage 2 mapping - do you mean the sport and rain mode? - Never used rain mode as the bike is so stable

Look around for one - but they are getting very hard to find now unmolested and in low klms
By the way - I have a riding partner with a standard 900 and it has done 72,000k now and runs perfectly - they are a great bike

Hi David. I find the clutch light enough but I have read tests claiming it is heavy. The passenger seat is very narrow and I wouldn't want to go far on it, even though I have the gel version. The standard one is a plank. I agree with NudaR about the riding position. In standard form there is a momentary delay in throttle response off-idle then it comes in quite suddenly. This is a pain in the @r$e, especially in the wet, but can be fixed with any of the various devices that lie to the ECU. I use an AFX-ied which improves it enormously, although you have to pull half the bike off to fit it and there are simpler, easier to fit devices. Some jobs that should be simple, like throttle free-play, are also a pain in the @r$e, taking over an hour. Overall though, there is no better bike for the roads around Canberra where I live.
