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-handling through 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 Expedition 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 Expedition makes you want to explore even further, whether on the daily commute or a year-long journey. 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 Expedition 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 Expedition'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.


Ride further, for longer, and benefit from considerably reduced fatigue with the touring windshield. Protecting the rider by deflecting wind around them, the windshield makes long days aboard the Norden 901 Expedition remarkably comfortable, especially on extended rides at higher speeds. A clever air pass in the centre results in less turbulence on the helmet reducing wind noises and relieving neck musculature.


Day, night, dusk, mist or fog, LED lights and fog lights illuminate whatever path you choose to follow. You can see that their design is based on competition experience from Husqvarna Motorsports Rally development, the front cowl with its integrated LED headlight and standard fog lights has a slim profile and is key to the Norden 901 Expedition's aerodynamic capabilities, adding stability at speed. A daytime running light encircles the headlight making you and your Norden 901 clearly visible in all conditions. To complete the all-around slim look, also the indicators use LED technology especially handy for safe turning.


To provide the most intuitive riding experience our individual riding modes automatically engage the suitable ABS setting. With three selectable ride modes (Street, Rain, Offroad) and the advanced 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 set up differently in each mode. Street mode has a direct throttle response with traction control settings to match paved surfaces and Road ABS is engaged. Smooth enough for less experienced riders or when travelling with a pillion, yet dynamic enough to speed along twisting mountain roads and valleys. Rain mode has a very smooth throttle response, reduced peak power and early traction control intervention ABS is activated on road level and is especially sensitive. The Offroad mode has a smooth throttle response and allows more wheel slip before it activates the traction control. The mode is not lean angle sensitive, the traction control does not intervene when you use a berm to turn, plus the anti-wheelie function is not engaged so you can lift the front wheel over obstacles. In 'Offroad' mode the ABS settings will automatically switch to offroad, so you don't need to browse through the menu anymore. The Explorer mode comes standard on the Norden 901 Expedition and gives you direct control over all functions to create your individual riding mode.


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 Expedition's engine even better suited to the tasks you set for it.


To excel on the road and on unmade surfaces, the Norden 901 Expedition 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 Expedition. 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.


The steering damper aids stability while riding on harsh street surfaces or when sudden bumps are encountered, while still allowing for easy handlebar control when riding offroad. Additionally, the frame has provision to allow the fitment of a high-performance adjustable offroad steering damper.


You will be quick to realise the benefits of the PASC (power assist slipper clutch), which maximises 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.
