It has all happened in a blink of an eye.. We should receive one of the first Husqvarna Norden 901s by early December, 2021!

Husqvarna just announced the release of this hot new model on the 30th of October and five days later we got the confirmation that one Norden 901 from the first batch would be delivered in 3-5 weeks. How sweet is that?!
We’re to the moon and back to finally touch the bike and to throw our legs over the saddle for the first time. Husqvarna/KTM developed the bike for a long stretch of 2 years, which felt like 3-4 years to be frank. Finally it’s here though!
Even a familiar face, Lyndon Poskitt has been assigned to the Norden 901 project!
Husqvarna/KTM is pushing the Norden 901 pretty hard. They’ve added some big name ambassadors to the project, such as Cyril Despres and Mike Horn. The other positive sign is that it’s essentially an updated KTM 890 Adventure with even more test kilometres behind it. The specs put the Norden 901 somewhere between the KM 890 Adventure R and S models.
More info and specs are here: Husqvarna 901 Norden
As for Outback Motortek, our job is to offer upgrades and make this promising adventure motorcycle ready for hauling gear and for taking trail abuse: Outback Motortek’s list of proposed products.
Is this the motorcycle you’ve been anxiously waiting for?
