In a not-so-surprising turn of events, Husqvarna says that it will in fact 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 called the Norden 901 and become part of the lineup. It makes sense for Husqvarna to offer an adventure bike. It’s off-road and motocross motorcycles have been killing it lately and the new street bikes the company has in its lineup were well-received, too.
The Norden 901 has an 888cc parallel-twin engine, WP suspension, 21 and 17-inch wheels, and styling that is very Husqvarna. The company hasn’t released a date that the bike will be available or a price or anything of that nature. It just said that it would be making a production version of the motorcycle.
Despite the lack of information about the motorcycle, I’m pretty excited about it. The bike will take on the BMW middleweight GS models, the V Strom from Suzuki and the Versys from Kawasaki as well as Honda’s African Twin. I’d expect it’ll be a little on the pricey side. Whatever the case, I welcome it to Huskey’s lineup and can’t wait to see what it can do.
