Husqvarna Norden 901 Leaked In Production-Spec Form
Design of the bike stays true to the concept and by the looks of it, its launch might not be far.
The production-spec version of the Husqvarna Norden 901 has been leaked at the same investor presentation from Pierer Mobility where plans to make the E-Pilen were also revealed.
All we have is one low resolution image of the adventure bike and that is more than enough to reveal that the design of the bike will stay true to the concept shown last year at Milan.
To be powered by the 889cc twin-cylinder engine from KTM, the adventure motorcycle, in production form, just gets mirrors and number plate over the concept.
Thus, the clean lines and attractive looks of the bike remain as they were. Also, the Husqvarna Norden 901 leaked image confirms that the bike will come with a 21-inch wheel at the front and 18-inch at the rear.
Suspension duties will be done by a WP suspension, while the engine might not produce the 121 PS it stated to make in the Duke 890. Since it is a bike of a different sort, the motor might be tuned slightly differently.
Other features such as the double-sided swingarm, hand guards, skidplate shown on the concept are expected to make it to the production bike, while crash bars, yellow auxiliary light pods and soft luggage (also shown with the concept) might be made optional.
Husqvarna had promised last year that its first ADV will have “class-leading lightness and power delivery” which will be set in a versatile and accessible package which is “precisely arranged to allow discerning riders uncompromised exploration possibilities”.
