The Husqvarna Norden 901 offers a glimpse of what an adventure bike from the Swedish firm might look like.
The concept uses the newly developed 889.5cc engine produced for the KTM 890 Duke R in a stylish, big enduro bike with a 21in spoked front wheel and 18in rear.
Crash bars are integrated beautifully within the bodywork and the engine protection fits snugly around a brushed metal bash plate unit.
The 50-shades-of-grey paintjob is accented with flashes of familiar Husky fluoro on the black rims, through the plastics and seat, and in the endurance racing-esque rally lights (the Norden lights, presumably).
As you would expect, the suspension is supplied by WP with a chunky looking set of forks and rear shock, while twin two-pot radial brake calipers with covered discs handle stopping duties.
A smoked screen wraps around the single headlight to make a clean line with the top panel of the bodywork and looks like it would offer decent weather protection.
At this stage the bike is just a concept and there’s no official word on whether it will make it to production but keep an eye on MCN for more news as we get it.
