The Norden 901 is an exceptional adventure touring motorcycle. Powered by a smooth and torquey 889 cc parallel twin engine, which is housed within a lightweight steel trellis frame, it is the complete long-distance travel machine. On road and when ridden across rugged terrain, the 105 hp Norden 901 excels on every adventure. With premium, high performance offroad suspension, versatile tyres that deliver traction in all conditions, it features ergonomics that ensure enhanced comfort for extended ride times. Explore the world your way with the Norden 901.
Wherever you plan to go or wherever your inner north navigation takes you, the chromium-molybdenum steel trellis frame is designed for distance - able to take the load and deliver day-long comfort. By using the engine as a stressed member the frame can be light and compact. Engineered to deliver precise feedback with agility and light-handlingthrough the tightest bends,stability and comfort over distance and superior offroad ability on the less-travelled tracks. Although it is compact and light the frame is as tough as any challenge you set it, carrying luggage, a passenger or both anywhere from the street to the most remote trail. The geometry of the Norden 901 was developed to create a world class travel motorcycle for every voyage of discovery. Seat height is manageable for every adventurer thanks to an angled rear shock. The ergonomics place you towards the front wheel for better feel and grip on all surfaces.
Your Norden 901 makes you want to explore further, whether on the daily commute or a month-long tour. Form follows function in the motorcycle's bodywork, echoing the style and single-minded effectiveness of Husqvarna Motorcycles Rally machines. From every angle, the Norden 901 signals endless exploration capability. The only thing to do is get onboard and ride.
Also ready to take you further along the most rewarding trails is the fuel tank with its 400+ km range - you set the destination. With its Dakar Rally style slimline ergonomics it has a low centre of gravity for neutral handling and a manageable seat height while maintaining good ground clearance. Motorsports tough, the fuel tank can resist hard knocks offroad, so there's no fear of being stranded. The lower sections of the tank also protect you from road and trail dirt and spray.
You are well prepared for all circumstances with the Norden 901's 21 in front and 18 in rear wheels, which will take you from tarmac to rough trails. You can have every confidence in the Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres - grippy on the road and able to find traction on the trail. The wire-spoked, tubeless design of the wheels makes them light for easy handling, flexible for comfort and there is less risk of a flat tyre holding you up and losing you precious riding time. The large diameter of the wheels makes rolling over rougher surfaces easy.
Control and comfort rank high on your list of demands from the Norden 901. With 220 mm of travel the WP APEX 43 mm upside-down front forks guarantee faultless performance and comfort in every environment, whether that means taut handling on tarmac or smoothing the way offroad. You can quickly and easily vary the ride characteristics to suit your own preference and varying conditions thanks to the adjustability of the compression and rebound damping of the forks. Likewise, the WP APEX rear shock offers a generous 215 mm of travel, and is adjustable for rebound damping and spring preload to cater for the roads you ride and the loads you carry. Adjusting the settings is quick and easy, so that when conditions change, you can set the suspension to match them. With comfort and control from compliant suspension, there are less limits to the distance your travels take you.
Every twist of the ride-by-wire throttle delivers just the right amount of power you require to reach new horizons. A pair of balancer shafts in the 889 cc, double overhead cam, liquid cooled, parallel twin engine increase comfort and reduce vibration, adding to your riding pleasure. The engine has plentiful power, with a maximum output of 77 kW (105 hp) at 8,000 rpm and 100 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. This, combined with finesse and manageability, make the engine capable of delivering everything you demand of it, wherever you want to go. Long service intervals of 15,000 km and low fuel consumption make the Norden 901's engine even better suited to the tasks you set for it.
To excel on the road and on unmade surfaces, the Norden 901 needs brakes with both power and control. You can rely on the Bosch ABS controlled system to confidently deliver rapid and precise stopping, no matter the surface or conditions you encounter. The Husqvarna branded J.Juan brake system brings MotoGP derived technology to the Norden 901. The four-piston, radial front calipers act on two Ø 320 mm floating brake discs to give you exceptional feel and feedback at the lever. The rear brake has a Ø 260 mm disc and a two-piston floating caliper. The pistons in the rear caliper have isolation plates to maintain heat stability so the brake doesn't get stressed when you tackle long downhill sections on the trail. The Bosch ABS system can be deactivated at the rear wheel for advanced riders.
For 2023 the Norden 901 features updated ride modes. Each of the selectable ride modes – Street, Rain, Offroad, as well as the optional Explorer Mode – instantly engage the best combination of rider aids. Throttle response, traction control level, and peak power are all set-up differently within each mode. Street mode gives a direct throttle response with traction control settings to suit paved surfaces while Road ABS is also engaged. This mode is smooth enough for less experienced riders or when travelling with a pillion, yet dynamic enough to provide usable torque through twisting mountain roads and valleys. Rain mode has a very controllable throttle response with reduced peak power with traction control activated at much lower revs to enhance the riding experience in challenging conditions. The Offroad mode has a smooth throttle response and allows wheel spin before traction control is activated. This mode is designed for the more experienced rider as it is not lean angle sensitive and prevents the anti-wheelie function from engaging. Additionally, Offroad mode automatically adjusts the ABS settings to suit the terrain. The optional Explorer mode gives full control over all functions, allowing riders to create a personalised riding mode based on personal preferences and skill level.
You can apply your full attention to mastering the terrain in challenging environments with the help of Easy Shift, which allows you to make seamless up and down changes of the 6-speed gearbox. A sensor detects when you actuate the gear lever and instructs the ECU to match engine parameters for a fuss-free gear change at any RPM or engine load. The Easy Shift system means shorter shift times and a smoother ride because there is no need to close the throttle and operate the clutch to change gear. As well as improving rear wheel traction, Easy Shift lets you maintain control by keeping full grip of the handlebars.
Offroad braking requires a specific technique, different to braking on the open road. The Offroad mode within the sophisticated Bosch ABS system is designed to enhance mixed terrain adventures. When selected, the ABS on the rear brake is disabled while activation on the front brake is reduced. In addition, the lean angle sensor no longer forms part of the system's calculations. This setting permits the rear wheel to break loose, allowing sharper cornering as the rear wheel can be locked on entry to tight corners and also when under acceleration when exiting turns. With a less intrusive front brake ABS, riders can feel the terrain and brake later and harder to enjoy true offroad riding. Designed to boost confidence in every riding situation, Offroad mode extends and refines the capabilities of the Bosch ABS system to suit the conditions on every adventure.
