Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition Confirmed For 2023

The news regarding the arrival of a more extreme version of Husqvarna’s Norden 901 first broke out in July 2022. 

  • An extreme version of Husqvarna’s Norden 901 to land in 2023. 
  • The “Expedition” could borrow much of its features from KTM’s 890 Adventure R. 

At the time, dealers were given a private showing of a prototype version of the motorcycle. 

However, the latest European type-approval documents have confirmed that the motorcycle is set for the 2023 unveiling. 

Despite the bike’s first image already making its way to social media, Husqvarna is yet to make any official announcement. 

Since the base Norden 901 is based on KTM’s 890 Adventure, we expect the “Expedition” version to use the 890 Adventure R as its basis. That said, it could feature a WP Xplor 48mm inverted front fork with 240mm of travel and a WP Xplor rear shock. 

Also, the document confirms that no change is done to the engine meaning the Expedition gets the same 889cc LC8c parallel-twin engine that makes 103hp @ 8,000rpm. 

However, the wheelbase is longer due to the longer front fork, while the bike’s overall weight also increases from 220kg to 229kg. 

Based on the videos shared on Facebook, the Expedition stands apart from the standard Norden 901 thanks to new paint and graphics, soft luggage and alloy shields.
