The Norden 901 is an exceptional adventure touring motorcycle. Powered by a smooth and torquey 899 cc parallel twin with an output of 105 hp and housed in a light steel trellis frame, the Norden 901 is the complete long-distance travel package. Off-road ready suspension with long travel will take you across the terrain you wish to traverse, while comfortable ergonomics make every journey an adventure - not a trial. Explore the world your own way with the new Norden 901.
Wherever you plan to go or wherever your inner north navigation takes you, the chrome 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-handling through the tightest bends, stability and comfort over distance and superior off-road 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 Motorcycle Rally machines. From every angle, the Norden 901 signals endless exploration capability. The only things 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 fuel capacity.
You are well prepared for all circumstances with the Norden 901's 21" front and 18" rear wheels, which will take you from tarmac to rough trails. You can have all the confidence in the Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires - grippy on the road and able to find traction on the trails. 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 tire holding you up and losing precious riding time.
Whether you're carrying hard luggage, bags and panniers, a pillion or both, the Norden 901 can be loaded your way whether the journey is for business or pleasure. The steel trellis subframe at the rear of the motorcycle is compact, lightweight yet strong enough to carry a passenger and luggage under all conditions when exploring the paved road and beyond.
Control and comfort rank high on your list of demands from the Norden 901. With 220mm of travel the WP APEX 43mm upside-down front forks guarantee faultless performance and comfort in every environment. The WP APEX rear shock offers a generous 215mm of travel, and is adjustable for rebound dampening and spring preload to cater for the roads you ride and the loads you carry. 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 105 HP at 8,000 RPM and 100 NM of torque at 6500 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 better suited for 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. The Husqvarna branded J.Juan brake system brings MotoGP derived technology to the Norden 901. The four-piston, radial front calipers act on two 320mm floating brake discs to give you exceptional feel and feedback at the brake lever. The rear brake has a 260mm 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.
You will be quick to realize the benefits of thee PASC (power assist slipper clutch), which maximizes rear wheel grip under full acceleration and prevents rear wheel grip under full acceleration and prevents rear wheel instability and hopping when downshifting quickly or braking hard into a turn. You will also find it easier to operate because as you open the throttle, the hand effort required on the clutch when changing gear is reduced. Less fatigue means more riding pleasure for longer.
The Norden 901 features a 6-speed sequential gearbox with a ratio to suit every condition from walking pace to flying highway speeds. Quick and precise gear changing is ensured thanks to a short shift lever travel, light spring action. and when required, the assistance of the standard Easy Shift quick shifter. The teeth of the 4th, 5th, and 6th gears have been glass bead blasted to provide exceptional reliability.
With three selectable ride modes (Street, Rain, Off-Road) and the optional Explorer Mode, you can instantly choose the best combination of rider aids, just as quickly as the weather and terrain change. Throttle response, traction control level and peak power are all variable in different modes.
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 short 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.
You want rider aids that assist rather than restrict, ensuring you always remain in control. Cornering Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) is lean angle sensitive and offers seamless interventions. When the system detects that the rear wheel is turning at the wrong speed for the riding situation, throttle input is reduced until the correct level of rear wheel slippage for the selected ride mode and current angle of lean is reached.
