First shown to great acclaim as a concept model at the EICMA Show in 2019, Husqvarna Motorcycles has built true off-road ability into an exceptional adventure travel motorcycle that keeps going when the conventional roads end.

Inspired by Husqvarna Motorcycles' multi-terrain Rally machines, the Norden 901 is built to cover long distances across challenging, diverse landscapes. Fast, fun, nimble, and above all, capable, this is a motorcycle to make even the longest riding days rewarding, no matter how far the rider chooses to go, on-road or off.

The Norden 901 brings a tough yet lightweight approach to the middleweight adventure sector. A smooth and torquey 899 cc, 107 Ps parallel-twin engine powers the Norden 901 while balancer shafts minimize vibration. The engine is housed in a light, steel trellis frame, prepared to carry rider, luggage, and passenger to the furthest points of the compass across any terrain, assisted by WP APEX suspension with long travel.

Large diameter 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels roll easily over obstacles on the trail. For all its exemplary off-road ability, the Norden 901 also offers unrivaled comfort and agility on the tarmac.

A rider headed deep into unknown territory needs to know they can rely on their machine in extreme situations. Therefore, the Norden 901 braking system is backed up by switchable Bosch Cornering ABS with Street and Off-road modes. Husqvarna Motorcycles’ lean-angle sensitive Cornering Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) is also there to assist, with particular attention having been paid to its levels of off-road assistance.

Making every journey an adventure just beyond the horizon, the Norden 901 offers three selectable ride modes as standard (Street, Rain, Off-road) and an optional Explorer mode to deal with every circumstance the rider might meet. An Easy Shift function allows for clutchless changes up and down the six-speed gearbox while a Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC) maintains rear wheel composure.
