We’ve already written about the status update of the Husqvarna Norden 901 at the end of 2020, and yet, there is still no word on the release date. But, we have found some information from the patents that tell us more about what features are causing such a delay.
Several weeks ago, KTM registered a patent that essentially details an adaptive cruise control system that newer KTM and Husqvarna models will feature. To be more specific, this would be a headlight-embedded radar system.
The most prominent example of this adaptive cruise control system is the large circular headlight with the embedded ACC. It’s an excellent implementation for touring machines as they will naturally cover larger distances. As this ACC system is still getting the finishing touches, it makes sense why the Norden 901 is delayed.
KTM will release their first bike with this new ACC system at the end of January, so we can expect Norden 901 to follow it very soon. Hopefully.
