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?
After not riding a motorbike for 32 years I am returning as an adventure rider at the age of 60 and I have a deposit on the 901. I’m super excited to be back in the saddle after so many years of modern advancements and improvements. Just as excited to exploring my part of the world on camping trips with a great friend. Really looking forward to seeing what OM is going to be developing for this bike 🙂
Will you be making upper crash guards for the Husqvarna Norden 901?
We will attempt!
Sorry folks. I posted a comment assuming you were based in Australia, outback, and all. Fantastic news that you’re only one national border away. I’m still anxiously awaiting your take on the Norden 901.
I just picked up my Norden 901 in the USA. Is there any update as to when luggage racks and crash bars, skid plate will be back in stock?
We’re constantly sending shipments to our USA east and west dealers. The next one should arrive by early September and another one two weeks after that.
