Further expanding Husqvarna Motorcycles’ line of street model line-up, the Norden 901 is designed as a “dynamic and versatile long-distance traveller” and is Husqvarna Motorcycles’ typically unique vision of an adventure-touring motorcycle, slightly off-piste compared to bikes already on the market from rival manufacturers or indeed KTM, the NORDEN 901 looks like nothing else and promises to be off road capable.
