Calling all adventure riders, the all-new Husqvarna Norden 901 has officially land in Malaysia with a recommended selling price of RM98,800 excluding road tax, insurance and registration.
- the Norden 901 features the same 890cc parallel-twin engine taken from KTM’s 890 Adventure.
- Husqvarna claimed the company first ADV bike makes 103hp and 100Nm.
The Norden 901 officially made its bow in November 2021, two years after the Swedish company unveiled the concept at EICMA.
Build based on the KTM 890 Adventure platform, the Norden 901 carries a different styling set than its Austrian cousin.
It has a more extensive body panel than the 890 Adventure, thus making it a proper dual-purpose bike for long-distance touring.
Nonetheless, underneath the fairing sits the same 890cc parallel-twin engine that makes 103hp and 100Nm.
The Norden also features a 21″ front and 18″ rear wheel paired with a tubeless Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR.
Moreover, it also comes equipped with taller suspension travel from the WP APEX suspension setup, 215mm and 220mm, as opposed to KTM’s 200mm.
If you fancy some electronics, the ADV bike comes with three standard riding modes (Rain, Street and Off-Road) but should you fancy ‘exploring the world’, Husqvarna offers the option “Explore” mode. (Which we thinks is another fancy name for Touring mode).
Other exciting features include:
- slipper clutch
- traction control
- cornering ABS (with off-road mode)
- auxiliary LED lights
- 19L tank
