A collection of spy photos has this week emerged showing Husqvarna’s long-awaited 901 Norden adventure bike in testing.

The bike and rider are disguised in KTM colours, however, a number of styling elements give away its true identity like the unique round LED headlight flanked by smaller riding lights, metal engine guards and sharply angled saddle.

While it retains the look of the concept bike that was revealed in 2018, this version appears to take on a new long-range fuel tank design, as well as a tail section more suitable for production.

INFO MOTO understands that the Husqvarna 901 Norden is based on the KTM 890 Adventure platform that launched this year.

As it’s based on the KTM 890 platform, the Norden 901 will sport the same 889cc parallel-twin engine.

It will likely get a unique tune, however, we know that this motor is capable of delivering a healthy 90kW (120hp) and 99Nm.

At the front, the Norden is equipped with a 19-inch wheel, while an 18-inch setup is employed at the rear.

Suspension is handled by WP, with a long-travel inverted fork for off-road assignments.

While it has yet to be confirmed for Australia, the Norden 901 will take on international rivals such as the Yamaha Tenere 700 and the Triumph Tiger 900.

It is believed that Husqvarna’s 901 platform will also birth a more road-oriented Svartpilen naked bike, joining the current 401 and 701 ranges.
