In a not-so-surprising turn of events, Husqvarna says that it will put the Norden 901 Concept into production. It was just last month that Huskey debuted this concept bike and even then we knew it would likely go to production.
The motorcycle will be renamed as Norden 901 and it will become a part of the lineup. It makes sense for Husqvarna to offer an adventure bike. Its off-road and motocross bikes have been crushing it recently, and the company’s new street bikes from its lineup have also been widely acclaimed.
The Norden 901 has a parallel-twin 888cc engine, a WP suspension, 21 and 17-inch wheels, and a stylish, Husqvarna-branded design. The company has not announced a release date and the price of the bike. They just stated that it was going to make a production version of the bike.
We are pretty excited about this motorcycle, even when there is not a lot of information. The Norden 901 will take on some strong competition – BMW GS models, Kawasaki Versys, Suzuki V Strom, and the African Twin from Honda.
