Equipped for expedition
Made for the purpose
Allowing for unlimited offroad exploration, the Norden 901 Expedition is equipped with WP XPLOR suspension front and rear, which unlocks ever more exciting ways to cross rugged terrain. Fully adjustable, riders can create a personalised suspension set up based on their weight, ability, and the terrain that lies ahead. 48mm fork legs paired with 240 mm of suspension travel on both ends guarantee sovereignty on busy roads and remote paths.
Outside of daily business
Wrapping neatly around the 889 cc twin parallel engine is a high-strength aluminium skid plate. Extending higher at the front than what's found as standard on the Norden 901, the skid plate is incredibly durable and protects both the exhaust and the engine to guarantee that no expedition, no matter how far, is cut short. The centre stand ensures a higher level of stability when servicing the machine in the workshop or when parked mid-ride.
Collect new memories
Pack everything you'll need for the longest of journeys with the Side Bag Set. Integrating perfectly with the bodywork, this cleverly designed luggage solution offers ample storage space of up to 36 litres without compromising the exceptional riding experience. Loved by adventure enthusiasts around the globe waterproof soft bags are robust and flexible, which makes them an ideal companion for narrow forest trails.
Extend your riding
For early morning starts and those exploring colder climates, the heated grips and rider seat provide instant comfort. Easy to switch on and off via the handlebar-mounted button, these heated components are a vital addition to the Norden 901 Expedition. A three-level adjustment on each end ensures the right amount of heat for all year-round expeditions.
Expedition in its core
Wherever you plan to go or wherever your inner north navigation takes you, the chromium-molybdenum steel trellis frame is designed for distance - able to take the load and deliver day-long comfort. By using the engine as a stressed member the frame can be light and compact. Engineered to deliver precise feedback with agility and light-handling through the tightest bends, stability and comfort over distance and superior offroad ability on the less-travelled tracks. Although it is compact and light the frame is as tough as any challenge you set it, carrying luggage, a passenger or both anywhere from the street to the most remote trail. The geometry of the Norden 901 Expedition was developed to create a world class travel motorcycle for every voyage of discovery. Seat height is manageable for every adventurer thanks to an angled rear shock. The ergonomics place you towards the front wheel for better feel and grip on all surfaces.
Your Norden 901 Expedition makes you want to explore even further, whether on the daily commute or a year-long journey. Form follows function in the motorcycle’s bodywork, echoing the style and single-minded effectiveness of Husqvarna Motorcycles Rally machines. From every angle, the Norden 901 Expedition signals endless exploration capability. The only thing to do is get onboard and ride. Also ready to take you further along the most rewarding trails is the fuel tank with its 400+ km range – you set the destination. With its Dakar Rally style slimline ergonomics it has a low centre of gravity for neutral handling and a manageable seat height while maintaining good ground clearance. Motorsports tough, the fuel tank can resist hard knocks offroad, so there’s no fear of being stranded. The lower sections of the tank also protect you from road and trail dirt and spray.
Ride further, for longer, and benefit from considerably reduced fatigue with the touring windshield. Protecting the rider by deflecting wind around them, the windshield makes long days aboard the Norden 901 Expedition remarkably comfortable, especially on extended rides at higher speeds. A clever air pass in the center results in less turbulence on the helmet reducing wind noises and relieving neck musculature.
You are well prepared for all circumstances with the Norden 901 Expedition's 21 in front and 18 in rear wheels, which will take you from tarmac to rough trails. You can have every confidence in the Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres - grippy on the road and able to find traction on the trail. The wire-spoked, tubeless design of the wheels makes them light for easy handling, flexible for comfort and there is less risk of a flat tyre holding you up and losing you precious riding time. The large diameter of the wheels makes rolling over rougher surfaces easy.
Every twist of the ride-by-wire throttle delivers just the right amount of power you require to reach new horizons. A pair of balancer shafts in the 889 cc, double overhead cam, liquid cooled, parallel twin engine increase comfort and reduce vibration, adding to your riding pleasure. The engine has plentiful power, with a maximum output of 77 kW (105 hp) at 8,000 rpm and 100 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. This, combined with finesse and manageability, make the engine capable of delivering everything you demand of it, wherever you want to go. Long service intervals of 15,000 km and low fuel consumption make the Norden 901 Expedition's engine even better suited to the tasks you set for it.
To excel on the road and on unmade surfaces, the Norden 901 Expedition needs brakes with both power and control. You can rely on the Bosch ABS controlled system to confidently deliver rapid and precise stopping, no matter the surface or conditions you encounter. The Husqvarna branded J.Juan brake system brings MotoGP derived technology to the Norden 901 Expedition. The four-piston, radial front calipers act on two Ø 320 mm floating brake discs to give you exceptional feel and feedback at the lever. The rear brake has a Ø 260 mm disc and a two-piston floating caliper. The pistons in the rear caliper have isolation plates to maintain heat stability so the brake doesn't get stressed when you tackle long downhill sections on the trail. The Bosch ABS system can be deactivated at the rear wheel for advanced riders.
The steering damper aids stability while riding on harsh street surfaces or when sudden bumps are encountered, while still allowing for easy handlebar control when riding offroad. Additionally, the frame has provision to allow the fitment of a high-performance adjustable offroad steering damper.
You will be quick to realise the benefits of the PASC (power assist slipper clutch), which maximises rear wheel grip under full acceleration and prevents rear wheel instability and hopping when downshifting quickly or braking hard into a turn. You will also find it easier to operate because as you open the throttle, the hand effort required on the clutch when changing gear is reduced. Less fatigue means more riding pleasure for longer.
The Norden 901 Expedition features a 6-speed sequential gearbox with a ratio to suit every condition from walking pace to flying highway speeds. Quick and precise gear changing is ensured thanks to a short shift lever travel, light spring action and, when required, the assistance of the standard Easy Shift quickshifter. The teeth of the 4th, 5th and 6th gears have been glass bead blasted to provide exceptional reliability.
