  • The Husqvarna Adventure is part of the upcoming 901 series. 
  • It features a retro-style design with a tall windshield, round LED headlamp and more!
  • It’s expected to feature a Euro 5-compliant motor.

Swedish brand Husqvarna is known to produce some of the best off-road bikes in the market, and to exploit this segment further it has now introduced the all-new Norden 901 Adventure concept bike. While it’s based on the  KTM’s parallel-twin platform, it looks nothing like the 790 Adventure and gets its own unique design to set it apart.

Following the brand’s neo-retro design language, the ADV looks like it’s inspired from the early-90s Dakar rally machines featuring a tall windscreen, round LED headlamp and fog lights integrated into the fairing. The bike also features flared lower belly panels, which act as a deterrent against harmful objects and debris.

Other notable features include a full colour digital instrument console with smartphone connectivity, high-mounted exhaust, mounting points for panniers and knuckle guard. The single piece seat and the tail section housing the LED tail light also gets the Huskie touch.

As mentioned earlier, the Norden 901 Adventure is based on the new 890 Duke’s parallel-twin motor which is rated to make 121PS of power and 99Nm of peak torque. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed transmission.

In terms of kit, the Husqvarna 901 comes equipped with long travel USD forks and a monoshock from WP, both of which are fully adjustable. Putting the anchor down are twin disc brakes up front and a single disc at the rear from.  Its tyre setup comprises 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoked wheels wrapped in dual-purpose tyres from.

Though Husqvarna has big plans for the Indian market, it’s highly unlikely for the 901 Adventure to make it to India. Not anytime soon at least.
