Remember EICMA 2019, when the concept of the Husqvarna Norden 901 was seen for the first time .
Now we are really there, the production version has been introduced, even more, you should be able to buy it in December 2021!

The chassis and engine base - let's face it right away to answer your questions - is completely similar to that of the KTM 890 Adventure .
However, the designers, led by Federico Valentini, tried to give Norden a different approach. The steering head is more open and the 901 has a motorcycle footprint devoted to adventure touring.
In short, as a tireless traveler, a little less than a racing twin like the 890 (R above all).
The equipment of the new Husqvarna Norden 901 is very complete with LED headlights, a brand new 5 "TFT panel that can be connected to the smartphone, 21 and 18" tubeless spoke rims, cruise control and quick shift, adjustable saddle , cornering ABS, 3 engine maps.

The engine is parallel twin, 899 cc twin-shaft and 105 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and has 100 Nm of maximum torque at 6,500 rpm.  
It weighs only 53.4 kg and has double countershafts to reduce vibrations. The steel trellis frame houses WP APEX suspension with 220mm of travel at the front and 215mm at the rear.
They are fully adjustable. The  21 ”front and 18” rear tubeless spoked wheels are fitted with Pirelli Scorpione Rally STR tires (90 / 90-21 and 150 / 70-18). The swingarm, triple clamps and handlebars are made of cast aluminum.

The Norden 901's braking system uses Bosch ABS Cornering, which can be deactivated and with two distinct Street and Offroad operating modes. Up front we find 4-piston radial calipers with 320mm discs.
Behind a 260mm disc with dual piston caliper.
Also present is  the cornering traction control of Husqvarna Motorcycles (MTC), with offroad mode present as standard.
And standard are the three riding modes (Street, Rain, Offroad), plus the optional Explorer mode that gives more freedom of selection.
The Easy Shift quickshifter is standard as well as the PASC (Power Assist Slipper Clutch) servo-assisted anti-hopping clutch.

The weight with all liquids but without petrol is 204 kg. The saddle is adjustable to 854/874mm from the ground. The consumption declared by the Euro 5 engine is equal to 4.5 liters per 100 kilometers.
